Hi. Ive been having problems on/off with my left leg and back since i started training and completing the London Marathon. My tandons in my left leg are very tight and non pliable, and have had back pain for the last 3 months. With the help of physio and oesteopathy i feel almost back to normal. But recent MRI reseults show that i have degenerative disks (i'm only 28!!!) and have been advised by the orthopedic surgeons that i should not run. I've never been active before and running was the first excerize that i have really enjoyed. I'm running in small amounts on a treadmill at the moment. I would really hate to give up running, but understand that my body and health come first. Has anybody else got experience of running with degenerative disks/back problems? Would seeing a specialist physio/running coach help? Any advice would be really really appricited!
