Cheers

Yes, thats the problem lack of patience from my side. How long have you been doing these exercises? Like everyone its fitting things in. I read what Dean said about only a few minutes but I find that its taking me 40 mins to do the basics plus some of the more advanced. Time is a premium, I get up a...

Thanks Pete

Re: Degenerative Disk Disease

Hi Tbone, I can echo your thoughts. I too have to work at a computer, I am just starting out and to remember to move and do any exercises is the hardest thing. I know its for me and only I can do this but I get so wrapped up in what i am doing when i do eventually move its hard work. I have two "sli...

In need of encouragement

I need some encouragement. I have read many posts and they are all very positive and I feel a little bit of a fraud compared to some of you. I have two herniated discs and have been suffering for 12 months with little or no help from the medical profession. From the start I have had pains in my righ...

Re: Hindu pushups

Wondering if anyone has tried Hindu pushups as part of their exercise routine once their initial symptoms have subsided. I realize this would be a rather advanced strength move, but it seems to incorporate a nice cobra stretch with a good core strength and upper body exercise. Hi Peter, I am having...

Hello everyone Pete from UK here

Well like everyone I am relieved to find fellow sufferers, misery loves company they say and I can echo the thoughts of most people when they are afflicted with back problems, it really does feel like you’re on your own. Our National Health Service is fine in many ways but when it comes to the back,...
