I am going to a play party this weekend and I was wondering if anyone know whether or not it is safe to be flogged wity a back injury? I have one herniated disc and two bulging ones currently. I don't have a lot of experience with this subject but, I know I like a nice thuddy flogging. Any advice would be appreciated.
I say this with experience in back injuries and several back surgeries:
Being flogged with a herniated/bulging disc will not inherently harm you. The flogging is generally superficial. The flogging affects the top layers of skin for the most part. Even a heavy flogging may get into the muscle structure a little bit. But either way, a typical flogging does not go deep enough to bother a herniated disc.
Now with that being said, you are more likely to experience pain from your herniated disc as a result of your position or how you are tied up while being flogged. The strain your body puts on your back while being flogged is what will cause you pain. So the flogging will not hurt but your position and strain on your back while being flogged can caused you increased discomfort.
Here it would help you to have good communication with your partner that is flogging you. Have the conversation about your back before hand. Let them know if you need to adjust your position while being flogged. I also recommend ice pack on the back afterwards.
