Hi Rita - Welcome. I agree with Scott. If I had found this site last year or the year before, it would have saved me hundreds of dollars and a lot of pain. It takes dedication to doing the exercises regularly, but when you do them, it's amazing that within a couple of weeks (in my case) I noticed a ...

:D Hi Guys! I''m glad to hear that you are both getting back into your lives. Golf and Tennis! That's great! I'm not doing anything quite so ambitious. BUT, I am feeling better for the most part. Gardening is my thing, and I was weeding on Saturday and all but forgot about my back. It's a great thin...

:D Hi, meeting back every week sounds good. I continue to do better. I have gotten my cobra all the way up. What a difference if makes for my back. I try to do it several times a day. Today, I woke up and went through the whole morning without pain at all. I forgot all about my back. What a wonderfu...

:D Hi Scott, I have been diligently doing my exercises and am sooooo very pleased to say that my back is feeling MUCH better. By far the exercise that seems to help me the most is the Cobra. I still can't get all the way up yet, but what I can do, I do several times a day and it makes a huge differe...

Hi - I think my back is starting to feel better. I say think, because I know it's still there, but its lurking and waiting (just a hint of pain) more now. I still have to be very careful how I move though. I found I can lay comfortably on my stomach on the lounge chair on the deck, with my head at t...

Thanks, Scott. But my definition of stupid is doing something I know I shouldn't do, but doing it anyway. I've been to the docs. Several of them, in fact. The last referral was pain management, which as far as I'm concerned meant they gave up. I tried PT, for about 10 weeks, it didn't seem to help t...

Yeah, I know. It was stupid of me. It's just that I love spring and watching the new growth and planting new plants. My favorite time of the year. I've had back pain for a couple of years now, I can't stop living my life. Between neck issues and back issues, it's always been something for years! Whe...

Walking

In the book, it recommends walking. That was how this whole thing started... but, I find that even if I'm not feeling any pain, if I walk or stand around for any period of time, 10 - 15 minutes, I aggravate it my lower back and am in pain for most of the rest of the day. Any suggestions/tricks?

Thanks for the support. What I find difficult is to still be careful once the pain goes away. Most time it's either there, or sub-threshhold, so I'm aware enough of it that I try to be careful. It's when the pain is not rearing it's ugly head that I forget to watch myself and do more than I should, ...

Hi Scott - Update??? My daughter is doing fine. How's your mom? As for me, not so good. I'm really not a great "patient" because I have no patience. My back was feeling better, at least I thought it was. So, me in my brilliance, enjoyed the weather this weekend soooo much I did some gardening and LO...

Progress

Sorry to hear about your Mom. I hope she is feeling better. My daughter seems to be much better, but only time will tell if the problem resolves itself as the docs hope. I am happy to report that since I have taken my exercises back to neophyte level, I can honestly say that my lower back does indee...

:lol: Isn't that the truth! I did succeed in laying on my side! Of course I was totally contorted on the seat and foot support portion. Is there any wonder why my back hurt afterward. Thanks for your concern. My daughter seems much better and I am trying to catch up with my lack of sleep. I've been ...

Hi Scott - I guess the pain isn't really too bad, or I prefer to think that it isn't. I can walk and walk upright, and I can sleep. Relatively speaking, I can imagine it a lot worse. Good days and bad days. I try to live as if it's not there, because it really ticks me off that it is. That attitude ...

Hi Scott - If you see anything good in your perusal, direct me to it. I started the exercises, but I think I must have overdone it yesterday, because today my lower back and my arm were really bad. My biggest problem is quite often, the pain doesn't hit me until half an hour or more after I've done ...
