    Love yoga.

    Tight hams, hips and lack of mobility in hips and t-spine are generally the problems.
    Foam rolling helps too.

    Do some research into sacroiliac joint syndrome...some therapists think this is the source of as much as 85% of back, hip, leg pain. I am seeing a physical therapist who suspects this is the source of my lower back pain, hip pain and bursitis. Cross fingers, we just started treatment yesterday.

    I second that...this book costs about 10 bucks and took me from being in bed for a month with crippling low back pain to my normal activities in a matter of days...amazing stuff...very simple...but quite literally will test your ability to buck conventional wisdom regarding low back issues (and any chronic pain issue for that matter).

    Following what dr. Sarno teaches was the best thing I have ever done, regarding my personal health, in my life.

    Great feedback from everyone!! Thanks for the information and sharing of personal experiences.

    The outcome: Prognosis was grim and the diagnosis was even worse. Two blown disc's in his lower back and several other bulging "at risk" disc's coupled with that. Surgery was last Friday, recovery is six months to a year depending on his committment. I have not had any clear discussions with him concerning his pain, recovery etc. At this point he is sedated fairly heavily with pain killers. I will give it several weeks before we start to discuss was his plans are to recover and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    I went snowboarding on Sunday (using his nearly new K2 at his request) and decided to just take it easy and enjoy the view. I feel like I drive just as hard as he does and I have no desire to end up in his place.

    Funny you mention the chiro like that!! The chiro is who finished him off about 12 hours prior to his disc exploding. I use a chiro on a case by case basis, but it is not something I do often. My chiro would argue that I need to see him more often for improved results. I don't know!! I guess that could be another thread eh?

    Sometimes bad posture and the mattress we are using are the factors of getting a back pain. Many have suggested that yoga and acupuncture are good treatment for back pain.

    I suffered acute spasmodic back pain for 40 years, from an old hip injury and then my Achilles tendon problems, which affected my stance and feet when walking. For me, the key to losing it has been strengthening my back muscles through swimming. Since I start swimming I have not had an acute attack, and it used to be 3-4 times annually, resulting in using my walking sticks (yes, I often needed 2 of 'em!) an 3-4 ays of rest and strong pain killers. Using the loo was exquisitely painful!

    Chiros are like doctors- they range from very good to very bad. Get *lots* of recommendations. The trick is finding a good one, same as a doctor.
