MY NAME IS Venard
7 years. It took me 7 years to resolve my lower back problem. It first happened in November 2007, a few weeks after coming from a World Championships in Germany. I was deadlifting and felt a ping in my lower back. I was in agony and whenever my back was in full extension, pain would kick in.
Moving around day to day was hard. I had to move keeping my whole core braced at all times and whenever I forgot to brace, when I moved it would hurt.
