Well I went to Ft. Benning, Georgia to pursue my goal of joining the Military (which I did in April of this year). Somehow I ended up injuring my back in reception of all places! I have no idea how this happened!! There was no time which I felt a discernible tear or rip or anything of that nature but I am stuck with this nagging pain in my lower back that just gets worse with almost any prolonged physical activity.
So fast-foward a few months, and here I am. I can't do anything physically demanding for long periods of time (i.e. one day of excercise and then I'm pretty much shot for 3 days-1 week). Currently I am trying different methods of treatment: Some stretches that a physical therapist gave me up at benning, going to start some dietary stuff, and I'm getting ready to go back on a machine that my doctor has that is supposed to help tissue regenerate....We'll see if anything works.
