T7-t8 disc protrusion, radiating pain, tingling along left upper back, is yoga and weights contraindicated?

T7-t8 disc protrusion, radiating pain, tingling along left upper back, is yoga and weights contraindicated?

Contraindicated? Eh-: Hard to be sure without an exam but it seems enticing to say the symptoms are consistent with an observed anatomical defect. CONTRAINDICATED? I think that is better answered following a good eval by neurology & then, physical therapy. Instinctively, I think weights need to be limited but I believe yoga can be more "flexible?" shall we say? No pun intended! ...Read more

Core strengthening: Core exercises for your abdominal, oblique, and back muscles can help strengthen and support the soft tissue envelope around your spine. Although this doesn't necessarily change the condition of a pinched nerve, maintaining a neutral position can help minimize the risk of further injury to your nerve. Once the nerve pain resolves, yoga, pilates, and general conditioning/stretching can also help. ...Read more

Pulled muscle: This could be a pulled muscle or strained tendon, depending on where it is located. Rest and apply ice and monitor your symptoms and hopefully it will improve with time. It is unlikely to be a tear since you don't have pain or bruising. ...Read more

Pain on lower L pubic bone after run, radiate to lower L back. Hurts while walk, lift L leg, and lifting R leg toward L leg. Cause bone or muscle?

Many possibilities: Attached to the "sit" bones are the hamstrings which can develop tendinitis. The hip rotators are deep to that area and can have tendinitis too. An alternative source would be lower back pain which can radiate down. For people who have muscle pain from running, reducing run distance, mixing in cross training and aggressive stretching can help. If not better, a stress fracture can be considered ...Read more

Piriformis Syndrome: You appear to be describing symptoms that can correlate with prirformis syndrome, whereby the sciatic nerve can become trapped and compressed between the short hip external rotator muscles. The diagnosis is often made as a diagnosis of exclusion after true sciatica or a nerve compression at lumbar spine region is ruled out. Thorough exam by orthopaedic surgeon focusing on hip pain ...Read more

Experiencing burning, inflammatory, aching pain in left hip. I sleep on my left side on a firm mattress. Walk a couple of miles a day. 18 months out lumbar fusion. Bursitis or referred back pain?

Tenderness: If you have significant (and asymmetric when compared to the opposite side) tenderness over the bursa, then likely bursitis. Referred pain does not cause tenderness. Gluteal tendonopathy often co-exists with bursitis. Consider a steroid injection into the bursa region, which can be diagnostic and therapeutic. ...Read more

Abandon your unfortunate tendency to use vague colloquial words like "butt" and and state EXACTLY what the scan was called. What you need is a scan of your lumbosacral spine, not your "butt." ...Read more

Hip Pain: Concern would be hip etiology. When you go up hills you go into increased flexion at the femoral acetabular joint (hip joint). Many things can cause this including cartilage issues or osteoarthritis, labral changes, or femoral acetabular impingement.
