Back on IR

No pun intended.  Just when I thought I was ready to play hockey again, my bad back has landed me back on Injured Reserve.  So, another reason I didn’t play in last night’s game was because my back was still bothering me.  Well, I had a doctor’s appointment today with a Physiatrist, and we went over my MRI.  The MRI revealed that I have two herniated discs that is causing inflammation.  He recommended either getting an anti-inflammatory injection into the affected area or to take some anti-inflammatory pills orally.  So for now, I’m going to try the less invasive course of treatment, and opt for the pills for two weeks.  Especially since the doctor only gave it a 50-50 chance that the injection would work.
