Re: Back Pain by Ken Dunn on 12 August 2008 9:54pm
I did my first strenuous exercise in 3 weeks today and although there is some discomfort in my back the spasms have subsided.
The treatment started with painkillers and muscle relaxants then physiotherapy with exercises similar to yours L T.
Coming off the painkillers and muscle relaxants during physio I have also used a TENS machine and finally a hot water bottle at the affected area.
I reckon I'll be fully fit again in less than a week.

I feel back 'pain' daily unless I took a muscle relaxant in the night. Every morning when I crawl out of bed. An hour and/or doing my exercises and I feel like (maybe) doing something strenuous.

Atta boy Ken!

Way to go, Ken!

Hope you have it under control, ken. I take pain meds around the clock for my back and neck and shoulders, knees, etc. it's mostly all due to spinal problems, so I know your pain.

Oh well done Ken hope you have success with it!

I too suffer from back pain, have done since I was a teenager, my lower back locks up and pain shoots through my hips, it's not pleasant. I also suffer from scatica. What a pack of old crocks we are!!!! Keeping moving is the way to go, all you can do really!

A lot of pains in the back here.
Re: Back Pain by Ken Dunn on 14 August 2008 9:52pm
Thanks for your comments folks. After another busy day the discomfort is reduced and the physio reps don't hurt. Still improving more. I have another physiotherapist check on Monday for further progress.
