It's been almost a year since I slipped my disc.?

It's been almost a year since I slipped my disc. IST made me optimistic and told me that it would heal. I did exercises and stretches every day, I started a slow recovery at the gym and avoided squats/DLs.

It just doesn't fucking go away. As soon as it improves, it gets worse again. And then the whole recovery process starts from scratch.

This week I have not been able to sit down for more than 15 minutes at a time. I am legitimately, unironically considering suicide at this stage.

Is there any chance to ever fix this.

    What caused it?

      I guess just sitting at a desk all day every day for years. The final straw was at the gym, but I don't think I can blame the particular exercise (DB bench press)

        How can you even ruin your back with dumbbell benchpress?

    It wont go away.
    Look up "Hodge twins back injury" on youtube. They talk about their experience with gym and back injury.
    They have their backs literally destroyed, and still managed to get fit. They avoid exercises that put pressure on their spines.

      Do they even lift anymore , looks like they have gone down a more political commentary/comedy route any reason they stopped or seemed to have beyond age and losing interest ?

      this is pretty much the only real solution, I can't tie my shoes without lower back pain but still workout

    See a legit GOOD sports therapist, not do random exercises and stretches you read online.

    Big possibility the exercises and stretches are making you worse, possibly due to alignment or other issues.

    You need to address the movement pattern that caused your disc issues in the first place.

      All of that is bullshit designed by therapists to rope you in and pay for their services to fix a problem they've invented

    >doing squats/DLs without being a powerlifter

    You deserve it.
    You could have just did the regular exercises for legs like legpress45, hack squats and so on. You have an infinitum amount of exercises for back too. You could have just worked it out as usual, but no, you HAD to listen to chuds on IST and watched retards on tiktok with your BS muh strenght lifts.
    Now enjoy your life ruined forever, gay. It happens sooner or later to everyone of you fatlets, you've fucked around and you found out.

    i've had a slipped disc for 25 years
    prime rule: do nothing that triggers it, no exceptions
    what's helped me most is yoga (specifically backbends and splits), and doing a fuckload of core
    it will never go away completely, but you'll be fine
    also, when it flares up, don't stay in bed. force yourself to go for a long walk
