I'm curious how many people suffer from back problems in people with Slavic ancestry. I will share my story first:

I was 19 and fairly decent shape when I herniated 2 discs in my lower back– between Lumbar 4 and 5, and Lumbar 5 and Sacral 1. I recently had AccuraScope surgery (laser discectomy). I had moderate to severe pain for 4 years, but was able to alleviate it by lifting weights (carefully…). About 3 months ago, one of my herniation "extruded" and surgery became necessary.

My father also herniated a disc at 34. My grandfather at 22.

Has anyone else here had back problems akin to this? And how do you deal with it?

I guess you were doing deadlifts and squats which f'cked up your back, right?
