Question and Answer Corner on Back Injury - Today its about college sports.

So, “Seattle Sports” asked a question about playing basketball with back injury:

“Should I workout/play basketball with a lumbar spine injury? So I’ve asked this question before… but I’m going to add to it. I have had bad Lumbar spine pain the past month and a half. I get numb toes, and leg pain and a burning sensation. It also hurts due to sciatica.


Here’s the deal. I am going to the Dr. on Feb 10 and at that point we will come up with a treatment plan.


My question: I have AAU basketball coming up in March… and around may I will start to workout with my Junior College team. Should I workout right now to get in shape even with the pain and numbness? Or should I just wait until Feb 10 and do my treatment and focus on getting in shape for May?”

Well, its obvious that a doctor will have to review the player before the coach lets them back on the team. However, I did have one bit of advice that might help speed the recover from sports related back pain.

“Get a Mueller back brace for $20.00. It will help and if you untuck your t-shirt it is hardly noticeable. The pain left me immediately when I put one on. Here’s alink. Its the second item down as found on www.SciaticaBackPainHelp.com :

Get a little book called Top 10 Cures for Sciatica and Back Pain. Its a few bucks and is number 15 in sports medicine on Amazon. It will help.”


Knights who are warriors never have shining armor. Parade day warriors are not heroes. Its the dirty knights who fight.

The world is far beyond needing a knight in shining armor. We need the knight with the battered, gouged and dented armor.

Send forth the knight who has seen defeat, and the crushing sorrow of loss – that broken knight who took his dirty, dented armor back into battle again after healing from defeat – just to carve out impossible victory. I want a knicked sword, polished to a sheen, but everything else needs the worn patina of battle-crush and scratches from the fight.

Modern hour drowns us in false heroes, with their too brilliant, polished smiles. Life is too easy for the rich politicians we elect. They can’t even begin to image a single parent that needs just $5 to make it to the end of the week; just so that parent can get paid and fill up the car, buy some Ramen and make that new, last, $5 make it to the next payday. Rinse and repeat. You know, the battered knights that sacrifice daily, and know the stinging hollow of loss and sorrow.

Brett Cardon lives the life of a dented and bruised warrior. A young man lost in Victorian England. His greatest love – and strongest foe – is a girl haunted by her mother’s ghost, hunted by the man who kidnapped her, and loves a gritting young knight.

Blood and Venom – Rise of the Maiden is the kind of Paranormal Thriller that will lift you up even in the harshest of struggles.

Continuous back pain after a pulled muscle two years ago! Help!

I received a cry for help from a reader who hurt his back TWO years ago. It seems like the doctors are willing to keep looking at it, but they haven’t offered any day-to-day solutions to removing the pain.

Fortunately, “Top 10 Cures for Sciatica and Back Pain” is a filled with ways to get daily pain relief.

Lower back pain????????

  • Rob asks-


I’ve had lower back pain for a while now. I have had x-rays and all that comes back is slightly mild scoliosis in my middle back but I am having trouble with my lower back. My doctor said that I had some muscle spasms and said that I pulled a lower back muscle and THAT WAS 2 YEARS AGO! When I lay down on my stomach and release a breath my whole back aches like crazy. When my boyfriend rubs my back or even slightly touches my lower back it hurts so bad. Also if it helps any my hips hurt really bad at night. I can never get any sleep because my hips hurt so bad. My friend said something about a pinched nerve in her back that did that to her??? What could be doing this? Has anyone else ever experienced this? Any solutions?

My reply is to focus mostly on the muscle spasms:

Muscle spasms usually lead to sciatica – which is an inflammation of the nerve in the lower back. Try to do the Piriformis stretch. This stretch makes room for the nerve to move around instead of get pinched by tight muscles. I put a link below to see the stretch.

I hope you feel better soon.

In aqua zumba are water shoes the same thing as river shoes?

I had a question:

My question is, is water shoes the same thing as what we Southerns call “river shoes?” or do I have to order something different? From what I can tell on the website they look just like river shoes. Thanks in advance.

My reply:

Hah. I’m from Texas and river shoes are old tennis shoes we use when wading the Guadalupe!

My wife likes Totally Hot Shoes Co. because it let her search for anything. When I searched for either term it seemed to mean the same thing.

Here is an interesting shoe for both running and river wading. Its attractive too.
