My wife has 2 herniated disks (c5, c6) and degenerative disk disease. She lifts 4 days a week. Lots of compound movements. I was nice for the first couple of weeks but now I push her like I would anybody else. Her Doctor says as long as it doesn't hurt lift away.

Had herniated disc. Worst year and a half of my life. Dr said sometimes they heal on their own. This one did. I stayed away from squats during that time. I think squats was the reason for the disc problem.
Be carefull with it. If it hits your sciatic nerve, you will not be sleeping good anymore.

I have 3 herniated discs due to poor form on deads and squats
only thing that made all of them get better was time.. and plenty of stretching every day, all day other than when working out.

I stopped all leg exercises. I stopped doing incline push ups cause that seemed to inflame it. I also stopped certain stretching cause I noticed after I stretched (what the dr.s recommended) the pain was more severe and lasted longer.
I made sure I didnt jump off any high obsticles. I made sure I didnt sleep on my side with my knees touching each other. Not good for the body.
I tried to avoid heavy lifting. Basically, I babied myself and took tons of advil and vicadin for a year. Sex life sucked cause advil makes it hard to keep an erection and even to cum.
I could have had surgery but I didnt have health insurance at the time. Luckily, it healed which in some cases, it doesnt.
The jelly leaks out of the spine and gets pinched. When this jelly leaks out, it makes it hard for the bone to heal. Since the bone is fractured, jelly leaks out. Kind of a vicious unhealing cycle.
