absolutely can be an isolated incident, but at some point their had to be some sort of exacerbating activity/event that cause symptom onset. So while rest and anti-inflammatory meds were able to decrease those acute symptoms, what's to say that it won't happen again and/or turn into an chronic-episodic injury. The goal is to learn how to prevent those injuries, by teaching proper mechanics with exercise and/or strengthening supporting stabilizers/core muscles.....

glad you haven't had another exacerbation, hope that you continue not to...

I think we've all stated the two most important things here repetitively:

1) correct posture/form
2) strengthen your core
