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 :)

    • It is said a picture paints a thousand words.  But that is not necessarily true. There is one word that we jaap that encapsulates everything in the universe and time. Scientists look for the single theory that connects everything, this word is the single fact that connects everything together.
    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway.
