Stewart thinks his back may have been hurt before accident

14-Tony Stewart said he learned something important after his season debut last weekend at Richmond International Raceway - that he may have been more injured than he initially thought. "I think what I learned after the race (is) I really think that my back was messed up before it was broke," Stewart told Fox Sports TV broadcaster Kenny Wallace before Sunday's race at Talladega, Ala. "I think what the surgeons did was fix that. I feel better than I did last year at this time as far as my back is concerned. (I'm) still having to be a little bit patient. That's why we have to alter the plan for today." Stewart suffered a burst fracture of the L1 vertebra on Jan. 31 while driving a sand rail in the Glamis Sand Dunes of the California desert. He had corrective surgery and sat out the first eight races of the Sprint Cup season. Stewart's doctors cleared him to return to competition just before last weekend's race at Richmond.(Motorsport)(5-2-2016)

Interesting. I sure don't remember hearing him say anything about his back prior to the January accident. Maybe he was just putting up with back pain and trying to ignore it.

Re: Stewart thinks his back may have been hurt before accide

That is what I was thinking HH.

We all deal with back pain at some point. Perhaps Tony had been and not realizing it was becoming constant. So he had become used to coping with it.

Nice to see something as positive as this story.

Re: Stewart thinks his back may have been hurt before accide

I worked in the warehouse, and as a delivery specialist for a prominent office furnishing company here from 83 to 88..I kept a sore back. But at one point I could lift a 200lb desk over my head! But, yeah, a sore back lasts for years. The worst thing lately is working right at the wrong height! Just bending a little bit will send my back muscles into some severe pain spasms! :shock:

Tony had complained in recent years of a few back problems. Nothing ever to the extent of Jeff Gordon's however.

Kinda like what I said, this kind of pain takes awhile before you admit you have it...when you have it; it has you! :(
