continuing sports with a cervical disc rupturegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Fitness, Exercise, Sports Injury Recovery : One Thread
I have been told by two doctors without the benefit of an MRI, which I have not been able to afford but hope to soon, that my disc between the 6th and 7th cervical vertebrae is ruptured. The injury occurred while boxing and might have begun playing rugby two years ago. The physical therapy has helped, but some days my fingers still tingle usually after I wake up. Is there a possibility that I can return to contact sports with or without surgery? The only exercise I get now is running and I am hoping to start training for boxing in the near future without sparring.
