What would you do if you had an injury that fluctuated your mobility?
In 2006, I had a fall at work and injured a spinal disc. I received some good advice on how to look after such an injury in 2008 when it deteriorated somewhat that my walking was severely affected. This took some determination and effort but it worked. In early 2009 I tried to go back to study to enter another area of employment, but in October the injury was exacerbated and I had to start the effort again. Its now the end of 2010 and I had a review mid year that said overall things were not so good. So I began again slowly and am now looking to increase my fitness strategy to see if I can maintain it.. My compensation was cut off due to various legal practices big companies employ, this has affected the quality and consistency of my ability to maintain the rehabilitation status of my injury. When I have my good periods of mobility, it is not without associated pain, but I have got used to this as it is now part of my life. Pain killers reduce my quality of life as I suffer adverse reactions so I use meditation and other means worked out with professionals. I want to apply for a job but am concerned I will not be able to maintain it and this will affect things in the long term in terms of my CV and credibility for working consistently, this includes thoughts of doing my own business. I am thinking about going to the gym in the hope of strengthening muscles, as the weaker the muscles become, the worse the injury, but I might be excluded because of the injury. I am thinking about doing a course in physical fitness to learn more about the body and increase my long term resiliance, but I might be excluded due to my injury? I have applied for a few jobs and I am usually politely excluded after they talk with their legal department re my injury. The issue appears to be that my injury may get worse and therefore the organisation may hold some liability in that regard. Can anyone suggest whether a spinal disc injury will get worse if using weights and gym equipment? Any helpful, knowlegable and relevante suggestions will be appreciated.

I would skip the gym for the time being and go see a physical therapist who can give you exercises to help strengthen your muscles. That way you are not risking your health doing exercises you are not sure will help or hurt you more.
