I have spinal degeneration and had two herniated disks that resulted in severe sciatica leading to nerve damage and foot drop in my left leg (the latter of which really s$cks). Had to have double disc surgery back in 2008, which was mostly successful.

I still have some nerve issues and pain from time to time, but I've realized that the #1 contributing factor to my back pain is not my core strength, not how much I stretch, not what my chiro did for me (that was basically useless), but rather it's how much sleep I get. When I am getting good restful sleep, my back is fine. When I'm stressed out and not getting as many hours of sleep, my back begins to bother me.
