2. one arm waiter carry walkGoogle them and get someone to teach you proper form. Especially #2.

You just have to pretend you're a snooty French waiter with a little mustache and that'll result in proper form, right?I.
........

Pretty close in a nut shell.... Weight in line with shoulder in line with hip, in line with knee, to foot, ear in front of arm look straight, with appropriate core, and thoracic, engagement. Neutral spinal alignment.

So yes. Like a snooty french waiter, without the bowed out chest. (Poor thoracic upper ab engagement.)

There is longer version I'll try and find link.

Not always but, The root cause of most of these injuries is not the one "event". Often it's years of bad posture, weak spinal erectors, repetitive use. There are many of us with bulging discs or worse that are not symptomatic.
You can treat the symptoms
Fix the problem , usually surgical.
Or the least prescribed fix
strengthen spinal erectors!!!! Which can be a combination of physical therapy, physiotherapy, chiropractic,
All off these will help fix the weakness and imbalance.
I ve seen amazing results with back pain injury, with non traditional wholistic approach.
Problem is finding the right person to teach /coach you
As always follow Md's advice. But seek out alternative options.
If tolerated try low weighted, start with 1-3 pounds.
1.one arm Suitcase carry walk
2. one arm waiter carry walk

Google them and get someone to teach you proper form. Especially #2.

I have more but these 2 are easy and very effective.

A strong well aligned back, will keep the md. And pain away.
