I slipped my disc again. I did it 5 years ago and it took me about 3 months to recover.
It doesn't seem as bad this time as it was last time, and my chiropractor has already made a difference with his treatment.
It was the stupidest thing that caused it. I was out at the lake packing up my camper for the winter. It had been out there for a few weeks unused so it was beginning to be infested with spiders. I was going around killing the spiders with a fly swatter. I reached down to swat one on the floor and "crick" it went. Stupid spiders!
I think I'll only be out of the dojo for a couple of weeks. I know I can't do Ukemi, and I don't want to risk aggrevating it by being Nage either, so the only thing I can do is a couple of exersizes and Jo and Boken kata.
I'm already walking without too much of a limp. The only thing that aggrevates it now is sitting, and bending over. Very tender.
I just have to concentrate on getting better and training in the light stuff.
