Hi all, at the start of July I had two discs replaced in my neck at C5/6 and C6/7. Recovery is going great but I am getting a bit anxious as to when I can run again. I'm experiencing issues with the muscles in my neck going into spasm and really tightening up.
I'm told I'm well ahead of schedule and that these problems are to be expected due to the length of time my neck muscles were affected before I was treated.
Really I was hoping that there may be other runners out there who've had similar procedures who may be able to share how long they before they were back running, but probably more importantly how they built up the running again once they were back.
