If you have good insurance then I'd get surgery if a Dr. you trust recommends that as an option. I had spine surgery this winter and it is healing fine. If it continues to heal fine then I'll be returning to kayaking with no restrictions next year except that I'll probably take a few "todos" off of my list, like sack up and run Double Trouble. Every time I run Big South I'm thinking this is the day and then I see the drop and say what was I thinking I'm walking dude. I'll keep walking that one.

I imagine that your back is going to have a lot more power over your life than you are going to like unless you fix it for good. Once you do that, you can hit the gym hard and get ready to paddle the way you want to paddle.

Thank you everyone for all of the great feedback! The PT seems to be working for now but I'd really like to find a therapist in the Boulder area who a little more familair with sports medicine. Any recommendations? Also how long did the sciatica pain last for those who experienced it? I still feel a little twinge in my leg and foot. And lastly my roll was never the best but I'm curious how back pain has effected others. Does rolling aggravate it at all? Has anyone found a more back friendly roll alterative or technique?

low back

I had to start Cboating; C1 and OC1 easier on the back and more leverage.
1/2 the paddle, twice the ........ fun.
