Looking for feedback from those that have experienced herniated discs, and how they handled the situation regarding riding dirt again. I've recently been diagnosed with herniated lumbar discs L4-5 & L5-S1. I managed to ride and race a hare scramble prior to finally getting an MRI, but loading the bike afterwards was trying. Now that I know what's wrong, all the information I'm getting is focused on becoming as pain free as possible -- nothing much with regard to how much activity can be resumed. Any help? What is there to look forward too?
