Our expert says:
You need to be getting enough sleep or rest (lying down) every day for the dehydrated disc. Lying down allows the disc to fill with fluid again. Generally one would try more conservative forms of rehabilitation before having a cortisone injection or surgery. I suggest you see a biokineticist who can reveiw your current exercise habits and advise you on the best exercises to do to support the spine and strengthen the muscles that support the spinal discs. It is not advisable to train with heavy weights if you have disc degeneration, as the load is often too much. You would need to have very strong spinal stabililizer muscles before carrying on with heavier weights.
See a biokineticist.
