So, I have had back problems (2 blown discs) for about a year now. I have been doing constant PT/stretcing/etc on top of working out. The few things I am limited to not do are squats and deads (as rad as they are) Basically, it hurts like fuck to sit down for more than 30 minutes at a time, which is terribly inconvenient for driving, flying, movies, etc. And that pain isn't really going away. I had an appointment with my orthopedic surgeon this morning and he reccomended that I try these cortisone injections into my back to try to reduce the inflammation to the point that the pain subsides permanently or maybe just for a few weeks. Would this have any effect on working out? Have you guys ever had one? Any reccomendations? Cliffs: Doctor said that if I wanted, I should get cortisone shots, do I want to?
