Oh, and was asking is it ok for belt during training? Does it limit training in any way? make the muscles weaker? Or is it a good option to prevent furhter injury?

A belt will prevent the necessary strengthening of the core musculature. This in turn will increase the likelihood of future injuries.

The advice of your medical professionals outweighs the above (i.e., if they say you need to wear a belt, then wear a belt).

Bhaji, just wondering how things were going with you.

thanks for the respsonse.

not too great. not come to a conclusion of the problem yet. have had mri scan too, came clear. seen a chiro as suggested, and goign around trying various treatments. not too great, i nbelive acupuncture may have given short term relief, but nothing major.

My mother had a serious back problem which laid her off work for just under 2 years.

She went around the houses and various doctors / specialists said she'd damaged her pelvis at the joints, and the rear bones just above the cocyx (sorry can't remember what they're called) had shifted downwards and inwards due to heavy lifting (for a female at least) at work.

See a good osteopath. Trust me if you get better, the money it'll cost won't matter in the long-term when you're fit and healthy.

Dear 1000,

I am an osteopath on the Olympic medical team and see a range of people. Everyone is individual and there is no one fix which will work for everybody. 80% of us will experience back pain so you are not alone. The best approach is looking at all the factors which contribute to your back pain and then working through them to manage your pain.

Examples of factors include

Family history of certain joint conditions/back pain

Lifestyle factors- weight, workstation set up, activity level, etc

Structural- joint and muscle problems

Psychological stresses- increase cortisone secretion in our bodies, amplifying any issues we have

Its also important to have a way to self-manage the pain i.e what specific program helps you the most (this may include a neofoam lumbar support belt)

If you've been to trained professionals and had no relief it may mean you problem is slightly more multi-factorial then what osteo's, physio and chiro usually deal with. the good news is if manual treatment has given you some relief it mean it is unlikely to be anything nasty.

I am based in London, if you want you can call me at my clinic on 07546033238 for informal advice.

There is absolutely no assurance that any statement contained or cited in an article touching on medical matters is true, correct, precise, or up-to-date and cannot substitute for the advice of your G.P.

To OP my dad has similar back issues to yourself. However he tried everything from england hospitals privately to even spending months on end in india receiving treatment which included laying in ice-cube tubs for hours on end. Nothing worked so he went to see another specialist (he was going from specialist to specialist as the pain was just un-bareable. But he went to see a "highly" qualified doctor/specialist (in england) and this gorah doctor said to him "only your God who is so great can solve your back pains/issue as there is no cure". Since then dad stopped going to specialists etc but with mahrajis kirpa since he started doing more bani (his amrithari) his back pain has become "comfortable" enough for him to do average daily activities. Point been do as much paat as you can you'll feel your back issue lessen. Mafi for rant just wanted to make a point :)

    • The muslims cannot really do much in Leicester so they picked an easy target in Birmingham.  And they use what they are good at which is the numbers game.  I wish there was a community that breeds at higher rates than the muslims so that when the muslims try to get their numbers that they get out-numbered by another community.  As to your post that you mentioned about us Sikhs being outnumbered by mobs from other communities is that although we are quite a docile race, we have a knack of being extremely well organised and disciplined when the time comes and this bodes well when tackling an unruly mob particularly when being outnumbered.  It's like some kind of dormant gene that gets activated. You saw how quickly our community galvanised during 2011 riots, how quickly during the Kisaan protests. Like MrrSingh said we are a walking contradiction. 
    • From what happened last week it looked like the Hindus started it and the muslims ended up on top with what happened in Birmingham.  You're right apne don't really bully minorities, we are racist though. I can't blame the Hindus to some extent when it comes to suls. Their leadership let them down big time allowing huge amounts of suls to stay behind after partition. We've been fortunate to have an almost sul free Punjab, we only know what suls are like due to living next to them in the west. Punjab has the lowest percentage of suls in all of India. Suls like to push the boat to see what they can get away with and when they go too far like they did in Myanmar recently, the majority community finally has enough and retaliate. If they were a community that kept their head down and worked hard no one would hate them but they just try to push their way of life on all of us. They have conflicts with every other religion. 
    • One major factor for the Hindus are doing what they are doing in the UK is the political backing. The Hindu political leadership in India is comprised of Gujjus and it is the Gujju diaspora that is spearheads in countries abroad.  Even if we had this level of political backing, we Sikhs don't do what these two other communities do.  We are wired differently. Even if we were an overwhelming majority, we don't pick on other communities.  But for some reason, these two other communities love to use their numbers.  But as a neutral observer, it is interesting to see Muslims in the UK on the back foot.  The Hindu lobby groups seem to have turned the tables on the Muslim lobby groups.  The police and local authorities seem to protect Muslims but they look quite helpless.  Muslim lobby groups seem to infiltrate systems from a lower level but the Hindu lobby groups seem to be excercise from a higher level. So it seems to be top-down vs bottom-up.      
    • The thing is that Hindus will only give it the large when in a significant majority and as soon as the numbers turn against them they pretty much give up. The only exception I've seen to this is the Tamil Hindus of Sri Lanka. They also have appalling unity, did the Punjabi, Tamil, Nepali Hindus come to help the Gujaratis? Nope. Yet you had Arabs and Somalians helping the Indian muslims and Pakistanis.  Sikhs historically have always been a minority in India and even greater Punjab so we are used to fighting when the numbers are against us. Just look at how we retaliated against the muslims of UP who heavily outnumber us when they tried to take our land. Even in Hyderabad Sikhs have fought against Muslims who make up a huge amount of the city.
