Back Problems
 
# 1 : Thursday 4-9-2014 @ 21:39
 
 
A few months ago I fucked up my back nicely, it is a royal pain as I can't get back up if I bend down, and have difficulty if I walk too long.

The human spine is an awful piece of engineering, do any of you have issues with your back an how do you remedy them?

The only problem I've ever had sounds a bit like your problem - would get stuck in a certain position like sitting down or taking a shot while playing pool, it would take a while to get back to a standing position, but it went away after a while although I'm not even sure how I got it - was told it was a trapped nerve at the base of the spine

My back is a pain in the arse,and going to a chiropracter didn't work for me but an osteopath did,he explained that the problem was not in the spine but in the connection to the hip,his manipulation worked but if I bend to pick something up without bending my knees,then i'm in trouble. The doc provides voltarol,vimovo and some other tablets that work after a few days.

Fractured my T11 vertebrae a few years back... worst thing ever. Also have scoliosis which wasn't discovered until I had to get lumbar punctures done. Some of my lumbar vertebrae have kind of squashed down from osteo porosis so I'm not as tall as I was either. Think the spine really is the worst evolved part of the body. When my back was really sore I got livocane patches (which I sold on the street lol)

welcome to the bad back club.

please regularly de-stress and perform gentle movement exercise, such as circular motions and stretches regularly.
Remember that just because you can "manage" to lift something now, doesn't mean your back won't tell you about it several days later.


also, this sounds mad, but getting hammered drunk (and not doing anything strenuous while drunk) can alleviate back pain.
Since being fluthered, relaxes muscles so much, stops you thinking straight (holding onto stress) you're back literally cannot tense up, even if you use it as your personal emotional voodoo doll.
Sightly more scientifically, because drunk people are shit at balancing you're also throwing your centre of gravity around, and not holding it in one spot.
As well as this being what makes a drunken master style kung fu artist nearly impossible to knock over, and just as difficult to actually injure by striking,
the sort of "sloshing" around of your body weight makes it impossible for your body to hold stress at the spots it has grow accustomed too (i.e. in particular areas of your back). It's like an accidental, half arsed, message via one of those inflatable Gym ball things for what? 3~4 waking hours? and then a nights sleep with a muscle relaxant?

That's just the sort of break a stressed back needs.

so be good to your back; become an alcoholic.

Taichi Polo. (core strenght is one of the reasons why taichi practitioners live so darn long)

I am finding it increasingly hard to sit on my tailbone, I should spring up from my desk in work but I'm crippled for the first few seconds.

I'm not sure if I should ask for a better chair to see if it will ease the pain.

bahahahaha I'm going to have to take up drinking!

It was suggested to me to drink more water, I was already drinking enough but drinking more does seem to help a bit.
