Can i do deadlifts if I have lumbar disk hernia?


The clip from the doesn't directly address whether individuals with lumbar disk hernia can do deadlifts. The conversation is more about protecting a neurosurgeon's hands and avoiding activities that could put their hands at risk. However, shares a related anecdote about his mother being advised against doing deadlifts due to osteopenia, which doesn't necessarily correlate with herniated lumbar disks or provide specific guidance for your condition 1.

Because the topic of deadlifts with a lumbar disc herniation isn't directly covered in the provided clip, I would recommend consulting with a healthcare professional who can give personalized advice based on your specific condition. It's important to get an expert's opinion on whether it's safe for you to perform deadlifts or any other exercise with a lumbar disk hernia.
