[quote="KC Masterpiece"]Hey Toby,
seems i'm a bit late, but I just came across your log.
I have lumbar spinal stenosis, so to an extent, I literally feel your pain.
I'm not familiar with cervical stenosis or what the long term effects are, but after a few months of GENTLE (like freakishly gentle) rehab-esque exercizes, I was able to lift more aggressively (if not super high weights
) and take up Muay Thai and BJJ.
So, basically, keep on trucking.
Hey KC, I dunno why I didn't read your post (!!!).
Did you have a surgery? I'm now on a semi-urgent waiting list of Disc Replacement.
I have also visited a Neck-specialist (physio). He basically told me he won't do contact sport anymore if it was his neck after the surgery.
I have been to the New Kung Fu place once a week but I don't think what they are doing are practical AT ALL. I will go back to my Hung Gar training AFTER I've fully recovered.
I am allowed to workout with "Machine" cause they are "safer". So I will do some stuff with the Ironmind Fabled Cable
