In my experience I think all of the long term posters have butted heads before... and have almost always ended up with a joke, a smile and laugh. Most of the enlightening and entertaining threads on this forum always have spice. I used to debate with anyone and everyone, but now I will only do so with people whose opinion I place value on and who I feel comfortable that I am able to tear the subject apart without any serious offense be taken - ie, friends.

Lonefox my comment was meant to be humorous, apologies if you didn't see that. Good luck with the back! wink

LF - it was definitely a joke. Besides, at 17 who didn't have porn mags under the bed, I did and when my parents found them I blamed my brother. :-)

Hope ya get well soon...Oh and try not to take things so personally on here. I did a while back and looking back I was quite foolish on my part.

K I apologize for taking things so seriously, but does anyone know any exercises for reducing back pain. I've been doing the cat stretch and I sorta feel good when doing it.

LoneFox, don't worry. There's nothing to apologise for. The problem is that some of the old farts on this board have histories like old married couples and just like to have a go at each other. The problem is that recent members don't always realise this and get caught in the cross-fire.

Back exercises. I think we'll all be a little cautious about suggesting any because we don't know you full back condition. Example; there are exercises I used to do which I now can't because of a trapped nerve (not even sure if I can run). So I might suggest something but it might turn out to be bad for your particular condition. Maybe just ask your doc.

(Personally I always found the cat stretch felt even more good with an obliging lady underneath me...)

LoneFox, I'm going to hop in here a bit late. Where exactly does your back hurt? Lower back? Upper back? Close to your neck? Closer to your tailbone?

As a person who deals with back pain on a frequent basis for the past 15 years, I'll let you know that you can still lead an active life. My problem is that when I was about 15 I grew too fast (about 5-6 inches one year) and it caused my hips to be uneven, not by much but just enough. This causes the last vertebrae to not have a flat place to sit. It will want to sit flat with the hip but then it pulls on the vertebae above it. If it's in alignment with the back I still feel slight pain if I stay in one position for too long. Since my diagnosis I have had 2 kids (yes that I carried and delivered), gone back to school, and even started weight training (my bench is up to 95 pounds. woohoo). The only thing I have to watch out for is standing or sitting for too long and doing repetitive movements one one side without switching sides.

See a doc and listen to his or her recommendations. We really can't tell you your problem or give any real sound advice since very few of us on the board have any real medical experince. Those who do have medical experince (I am not in that category unless you want to consider putting band-aids on scraped knees)wouldn't/shouldn't give advise over the internet since no one on here has met you much less given a proper exam on your back.

I've located the exact area of pain now, it really isn't spine related its a muscle injury. Now that I've finally located the blasted thing, I can start applying the relief gel at the right spot and know my limitations. Far as I know I can't really get into high impact exercises. Doc recommended low-impact though. Any thoughts?

Yoga, Pilates or a tai chi class. Be sensible, explain your condition to the instructor but also intelligence of your own body to know what is good for the body.

Swimming is also a good low-impact form of exercise. With summer around the corner (unless you live 3 miles from Hades like I do then it's almost always summer) swimming will feel pretty good.
