Thread Name: BS: Advice for treating bad back.....
Subject: RE: BS: Advice for treating bad back.....
You have some good advice here......primarily, go see a doc and preferably an orthopede. Find out what is really the problem. After that you can do the other stuff from herbal to chiro to exercise, etc. It is important to know.

I fought the problems for 20 years before having surgery at 40. Since then I have had no problem whatsoever. Surgery isn't a first option anymore to good orthopedic people, but at times it is the only option. A badly herniated disc will never heal itself or succumb to magic elixirs or wand waving. If surgery is indicated, there are some newer options that do not require hospitalization except as an outpatient.

This may be a one time thing or it may be the start of a long problem. Find out now what is happening and you'll both feel better. BTW, we have some other threads on this when Aine was having prob;ems that started the same way.
