    Default Back pain relief?

    I hear all about how beeks have bad backs and this last Halloween my back decided to cramp up sending me to the floor in the kneeling position while I fought to stay conscious. I was up and moving the next day but like any cramp I was really sore. We ll this last weekend it stated to bother me again. I understand that there is stretches and other things that people have tried that help them. Would you all post them or PM me with them? This thing has really concerned me. BTW I did nothing other than a couple of days light in sleep. Worked out in the gym before work and the Monday before I was doing squats and lunges but that was days earlier. “Too young to feel this old”

    Lactic acid builds up. Drink 5 to6 bottles of water a day to keep it flushed out.

    Using other peoples exercises may not be the best approach. I went to one orthapedic surgeon who gave me a set of exercises, did them faithfully for two years, back got worse and worse, went to a different surgeon who sent me to a physical therapist. tested my muscles etc, gave me a completely different set of exercises. I showed her the set that the previous doc. gave me and she said "don't do those your back will get really bad" boy did I listen to her, besides she also said doing bee work would be good for my back. good luck

    IMHO, the best book for understanding and dealing with back issues is "no more aching back" by leon root, M.D. It's not a new book, and it seems new copies on amazon approach $100....but used ones are cheap. Highly recommended.

    I ordered this book from Amazon. Cost, 1 cent, shipping $3.99. I will let you know what I think. I have stretches I do every day but I need something more now that I have hives.

    I've had back problems since 1973. First hospitilization then. Physicians, Osteopaths, Chiropractors....All trumped by one Physical Therapist after 25 years of pain. Get a medical clearance for a good PT and have them prescribe the right stretches and excercise regime for you. HTH

    Well I did the Lburou route: hit the doc and they sent me to a PT (and a back X-Ray). Figured the $20 co-pay was worth the trouble. I got a text asking if I wanted to hunt pheasants in the brakes the following day I asked the therapist what he could do for me. After he got done bending me around he hooked up electrodes and heat to my back for 20 minutes, put on some weird tape. He told me that the electrodes would deaden the nerves and the tape would do a bunch of different good stuff but leave it on two days max. I walked for 4 miles up and down slopes and a 2.5 hr truck ride two ways. I am doing his exercises and am in great shape.

    Congratulations minz! Keep up on those exercises. Do them when you first notice a twinge in your back and it might work for years before needing any more intervention. Any followup visits scheduled with PT?
