Yes! I’ve done it for a compressed disk in my lower spine and it actually helped a lot with relaxing it/stretching it out. I was super skeptical at first but insurance covered it so I figured it couldn’t hurt.

Hi y’all,
I shared an intermediate workout program (Back/Legs/Arms&Shoulders/Leg/Chest split) with a few friends the other day and figured I could also share it with others if interested.

It’s a program I follow outside of my 12-16 training block preps, and if anyone wants, I can share it with them. It’s for strength training.

Also happy to explain what any of the exercises are if someone wants the workouts and doesn’t know the benefit or how to do them.

Feel free to DM me about it

Cheers
