prolapsed disc

Hi and thanks for letting me join the forums. I had a prolapsed disc about a year ago and really want to get back into my running but my left leg is slightly weak and worried that I could damage my back further. Would really like some advice on the type of exercise that would be good for me. I have a pair of adidas Cloudfoam Groove running trainers so hopefully these will help in case I run on hard ground, even better for running on soft surfaces like grass ect. Any advice on this would be great. Thank you

Some exercises can help improve the symptoms of a herniated disc. A physical therapist can teach you which ones strengthen the muscles that support your back.

Stretching a muscle to the full extent of your ability and holding it for 15 to 30 seconds is what's called a static stretch, and there's no harm in stretching that way as long you don't stretch until it hurts.
