Without getting overly personal, is this a permanent problem or something rehab-able?It is standing in one place for awhile that bothers it. If i am moving it is okay, I can handle an hour, hour and half okay but around 2 hours or so it starts hurting if i am standing in one place aka holding a retractor in a long surgery
All surgery is going to be robotic. Just wait about 50 years and you are good to go!What surgery speciality allows you to do procedures sitting down? If not surgical what about a procedure oriented speciality? Thanks
Thanks for the ideas guys. It is not really anything thats fixable. I could have surgery but if i did that now it would be worse off.Along the lines of facetguy's post - whether it's a fixable problem or not - have you tried getting better shoes? I bought some nicer shoes and got some inserts and it has made some of the longer cardiothoracic surgeries (6-7 hour) I've watched more tolerable.
I used to be a cop. Somebody rear ended my patrol car at 80 MPH. I herniated two discs in my lower back. I feel your pain, literallyThanks for the ideas guys. It is not really anything thats fixable. I could have surgery but if i did that now it would be worse off.
check out the book "Starting Strength" by Mark Rippetoe, for a comprehensive intro to deadlifting or check out his youtube vids.Question:
I've been warned a lot about having proper technique with deadlifts. Is that something I could legitimately learn off of a youtube video or is it absolutely necessary to be taught by a trainer?
