Several years ago I developed lower back problems after getting worn out at work over the course of several months, basically. Affected my lower back and right leg. Well, sometime after I got to work this morning, I noticed my lower back really starting to bother me again. This evening, the better half and I got the yard mowed. That exercise has mad it feel a bit better, for some reason. She mowed, I weed-eated and collected the grass to use as mulch in the garden. I made an appointment to go to the chiropractor tomorrow morning.

Wish me luck!

I have done heavy iron work (boilermaker union) or Mech most of my life. My back and knees are toast. I had a Nerve block on my lower back done yesterday. It usually last about 1 1/2 years then I get another one. They tell me one day I'll go under the knife. Not till I have to. I do not like people messing with my spine......

Hope the adjustment helps. I am starting to develop a couple of places myself.

Ahh, the joys of getting older.

Good luck Lifer. I've been seeing a chiropractor for years. Messed up my right hip and lower back in a motorcycle accident 24 years ago. Went through months of physical therapy with little to no success. Finally my PCP suggested this old chiropractor (Doc Ridge) Did 6 visits in 2 weeks and was ready to go back to work full duty. So, Ive been seeing him 4 to 5 times a year ever since. Unfortunately he's getting ready to retire. (he's 82) so I have to find another. A good chiropractor can really work wonders.

Good luck nra. I have never been fond of the chiropractors. It does suck getting older.
