That is a severe injury, dude. I'd stay away from anything involving your back for a few months. I'd do some light stretches, icing, foam rolling, and chiropractic in this time period.

I would find a good chiro or PT to show you rehab exercises that you will always need to do - and positions/postures you need to avoid.
Over time, you'll be able to train all out again. But train SMART!
thanks for the responses i start pt monday and get a steriod injection tuesday
