    Yeah no clear connection might be a stretch, but I'm a little torn on MRIs as the deciding factor. There's no doubt that you have root compression, but as an MRI mostly shows the mechanic compression, less so the inflammatory and not the ischemic response, nor how homoestatis is effected in the nerve tissue (which is not completely understood anyway) I'd still argue that it's the symptomatology that is primero uno most of the time. Wouldn't you say? That's the way things are moving anyway. Another thing is that some protrusions and even prolapses subside on their own, so there's that whole thing too. Obviously the MRI can help narrow it down, and any osteosynthesis/degenerative stuff will show as wel!

    If I was in your shoes I would probably get an MRI too if my symptoms didn't go away, and definitely if they became worse. I'm dealing some pretty severe cervical stuff myself so I can relate.

    Hope everything works out! You're a smart and knowledgeable dude who has worked through a lot of issues it seems, so there's hope :)!

    Thanks, I'm doing well! About to have my last internship and then write my bachelors and finally start working full time! How are you doing?

    I've been having conversations with our resident kinesiologist about that very sentiment. We're trying to show the powers that be in our organization that the old man medical model of prevention isn't necessarily the best for everyone.

    I agree, do the imaging.

    Thanks.

    I would say spinal MRIs are useful for two things: 1) to rule out serious bone damage after traumatic accidents, and 2) to help with decisions on whether surgery is mandated, and what type of surgery might be optimal. So, if there is no suspicion of serious bone damage, and if there are no serious neurological symptoms (which mine currently aren't), and MRI isn't warranted. Other than informing on immobilisation or surgical interventions, spinal MRIs are pretty useless as they provide no useful information. As an example, the MRI in my neck showed 2 disc hernias and 2 disc prolapses. That information has been entirely useless to me: whether I knew there were 2 hernias and 2 prolapses or whether I was only aware of the symptoms (which, at the time, included localised pain, ROM limitations, and hand numbness that persisted for 3 months), I would have done nothing different in terms of rehab and subsequent management.

    Other than being a physical wreck, I am trying to do the best I can with work. Conditions are far (very far) from ideal, but I'm trying to do my best with what I'm given.

    Yeah I agree completely.

    I see. Yeah, there's hurdles everywhere, some bigger than others. I'd like to think about it as growing pains, but it's not always easy. Keep on trucking my friend.

    I'll stop hijacking the thread, so I'll just say have a nice day!

    Power Cleans

    R shoulder rotator cuff is very problematic.

    L knee had an unreasonable amount of PF pain for the first few days after last week's 180 triple; after a week of rest I'd say it's now back to 80%.

    Running

    5.5 k
    moderate to low intensity


    Been taking time off of lifting. Did some light squats last week, have been doing a rehab/strength routine for the the shoulders. Both the L knee cartilage and the R shoulder rotator cuff are getting better, but not good enough to resume lifting. I'm thinking of asking for an IMR for that shoulder.

    Bench Press

    several sets of 10 between 60 and 85 kg

    Squat
    up to 120x10


    Knees felt normal, I think I'm over the hump with that one.

    There is still some posterior right shoulder pain. Got a shoulder and neck MRI, we'll see if they results will be of any use.

    My left wrist is fucked. Probably torn ligaments. If it's ok a month from now I'll be stoked.

    I went for 170x3 on Monday and failed the third rep. I want 170x5 before the end of next week.


    EDIT: it should be clear from the above that I am not quite in my best mental shape.

    Well, that's 170x5 when last Monday I missed 170x3. It was a strong set, too, I'm pretty sure I could have pulled 5 reps with something like 175 on the bar.

    Yesterday I got the results of the shoulder and neck MRIs I did a couple of weeks ago. Both pretty much appear to be FUBARed.
