When I was 20 years old, I shattered a vertebrate in my back (car accident).
I had had back problems ever since until I started working with a trainer a couple of years ago.
I discovered that a lot of back problems comes from having back mucscles compensate for weak abdominal muscles.
Ever since I started working to strenghten the abs, the back pain just went away.
I went from "pulling" my back a couple of times a month to no problems at all for a couple of years.
fortiter in re, suaviter in modo (resolutely in action, gently in manner).
Thermacare patches. They apply heat for about 8 hours. Got me up moving when I hurt my back helping a friend move a heavy wooden swing set. Also, try to sleep on your back with a pillow under your knees. For some reason this takes pressure off your lower back.
My sister just wrote to me today about a back injury she had. She saidso maybe there's something like that you can do to make your back more resilient.I have to go to physical therapy now to learn "spinal stabilization" exercises and techniques like how to bend and stretch and exercise your back
Exercise to keep it from hurting and heat for muscle pains and ice for inflamation. I have had back problems for a long time, 4 hernieated discs and two ruptured, when all else fells just find a bottle of Irish Wiskey.
Somebody kicked my dog Mavis and I'm going to find out just who the hell it was.
Steriod shots by a pain clinic works good untill you build up a resisstance to them :)
Aleve does wonders for me.
That, and sticking to my exercises. My back usually flares up when I'm not keeping up with them.
