Is It Permissible To Attend Campus Off-road Events While HNP Still Likes To Relapse?
, I am a sufferer of HNP L5 S1, just discovered since 2 years ago. Lately, the HNP likes to relapse again, and on Saturday there will be a campus event, one of which is off-road. According to the doctor, can I and can take the off road event? Will it not have a negative impact on my backbone especially on the L5 S1? Thank you

As you probably already know, HNP or often called a pinched nerve, is a condition where the cushion that lies between the spine is out of place and compresses the nerves that are behind it, so that it can cause symptoms of back pain, and often radiates get to the feet. Things that can increase the risk of HNP are:
Wrong weight lifting position. Should be done by squatting first and then standing, compared with bending and lifting items (overloading the spine) Excessive weight (obesity) Old age Injury due to an extreme activity or sport Smoking Smoking Sleeping position Wrong sleeping position Therefore basically it is a matter that must be Patients suffering from HNP are:
Diligently control the condition of the spine, both with medication and with physiotherapy Maintain a normal body weight or ideal body weight. Sleep in a good position (recommended on your back) by using a mattress that is not too soft (too bent the spine) Maintain good posture, both when standing or sitting Avoiding extreme activities or sports that are at risk of injuring the spine Avoiding lifting heavy objects (especially in the wrong position) Avoiding smoking Especially for off-road, very dependent on the activities you will do at that time. Because to my knowledge off-road activities generally involve a lot of extreme vibrations and movements, in my opinion it is safer if you don't get involved too much in these activities. However, because you know best and can determine the degree of activity that you will do during the activity, as long as you think there is no risk of injury or a burden on your spine, you can follow it.
Thus, hopefully can help.
