I had my back examined by a sports doctor today. I told him I injured it years ago, that it was gradually getting worse, that I had pain once a month that was triggered by bending down slightly. No other pain besides the back.

He says I'm lucky I'm not pinching any nerves. He says l likely ruptured a disk. An x-ray showed nothing other than that my lowest vertebrae did not develop right after after birth. He said that puts me at risk but did not cause it.

He said he can order an MRI since he is not paying for it, but he doubts anything more would show up that he did not already diagnose. I still don't understand why I only feel pain on my right side of my lower back and not the center if the damage is at the center. He said I can come back if the PT does not help. He gave me the prescription.

My copay was $15. My maximum deductible is $100. Nice to know. Adverse selection, yes I am.

He watched me bend down and says my main issue is I need to bend slower.

Do not get frustrated by a low start. Everyone who starts this low always get "beginner gains", fast increases in strength that plateau later. I never saw noticeable muscle increases, but strength increases come easily.

Just do not injure yourself!
Progressive and gradual is the key. It should feel good and safe.

Edit:
Rehab log.
So your are injured. Well, then no beginner gains for you. Just keep exercising every muscle group without making your injury worse. The hormones you get from exercise will help your injury heal, assuming you don't strain it worse.

Any idea what your average day of working out expends in calories?

Asking for a friend. (You.)

Seems like a lot. Not too much for you, since you're getting through it.
Not sure if there is any formula online to help with the estimate.

Then, there is the obvious next question, that I'd also ask for a friend.

does the elliptical bother your back? my back flared up a few months ago and i found the twisting motion of the elliptical bothered it so i just held onto the stable handles and didn't work my arms. bicycle is best for the lower impact.

I was starting to increase my elliptical time then found that that seemed to be irritating my SI joint so I ditched it.
