    Hey all this is my first post here.

    I'm 2 weeks into my TMS treatment and seeing good results and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

    My question is this... should I still train Brazilian Jiujitsu or basketball even when my back is still sore? It's not majorly spazzing but definitely feel it.

    Most TMS therapists and Dr. Sarno himself encourage physical activity, that it won 't make a pain worse and actually helps it to heal. An excellent example of this is Steve Ozanich in his book, The Great Pain Deception. He writes on how continuing to play golf despite the pain helped heal him of multiple pains. But he also said he had to discover the repressed emotions that caused it.
    Journaling helps this. If you haven't done it yet, I urge you to start the Structured Educational Program, free in the subforum of this web site. It will help you to discover repressed emotions causing pain. Good luck and be happy.

    Carry on my dear. It's much harder to resume physical activity if you stop or pull back due to fear and pain. Given you're already seeing the benefit of tms healing I'd encourage you to maintain momentum.

    For me when I didnt train I got more pain thats why I started mobilization yoga and whatever. When I started to train I started it with pain-it got better and better. When I think about that maybe there is a physical factor to my pain then my pain got worse.

    Make sure there's nothing really wrong with your back like cyst or cancer or w/e. Sarno wrote about it in his books.
