As someone with disc problems, I would go with him just thinking it's soreness. In my experience, my back almost always feels tight and it's just something I deal with on most days. Once in a while though, I do something that just triggers a flare up - like shoveling that damn snow a few weeks back - and suddenly I can't walk anymore. I would guess it was something similar with Parent, normal stiffness and then suddenly it got real bad that day.
I have the same problem it friggin sucks, i hope ryan recovers soon, its such a damn shame hes always hurt..
But at Monday’s practice, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren was quick to say that wasn’t the case.
Asked to clarify if rumors of surgery for Parent were true, he said, simply, “No.”
Holmgren was tight-lipped on the matter and declined to elaborate further, stating again that Parent is day-to-day. He would not confirm whether the “back spasms” the media had learned of days ago were what Parent has been experiencing.
When asked whether the injury was severe, again, he said, “No,” adding only that there are plans for Parent to visit another doctor.
“He’s seeing a doctor [Tuesday], and we’ll go from there,” Holmgren said.
