I know I am not alone, and many people suffer with pain
I have had problems with my back off & on for many years,
and had periods with no trouble at all.
recently had experienced severe hip pain, with shooting pain down rigth leg,... some hobble waking,.. and lots of back pain right across the lower back... after a couple of weeks I started seeing a Chiropractor, and also booked an apt with my doctor. At first I was afraid to be put off work, with all that would mean fiancially....
But nothing stemming from Fear is good.
So with Fear set aside, and I started regular treatments, bi- weekly
after 8 weeks with no relenting even choosing to be careful at work, not to push or lift... my Doctor put me off work for 3 weeks to see if th Rest would help
I have 2 vertebrae mis aligned ? some how, is what the xrays show, plus deterioration of cartiledge, "arthritis?" // casuing prob. the flare up in back and hips, etc...
I guesss non of us know how long, when, or why things happen...
I know I need to loose weight
I also need to excercise, and stengthen my back muscles,
my daughter is studying to e a massage therapist , she let me know L4 & L5
