Know your back pain

Cerritos, CA

#1 Oct 26, 2017
I woke up one morning, laying in bed, stretched-arching my back as much as I could- and felt a crack around my l-4 or l-5. I was 14 at the time (41 now) and ever since then, at any time, for any reason, my back will "Go out". I would have to lay flat on my back for at least 8 hours until I could move at all, and my back pain would persist (getting better all the time) for up to 8 weeks!
I had x-rays done with no result.(Doc said all looked good). I have had to shy away from certain movements for over the last 27 years (like pushing anything slightly heavy, bending at the waist AT ALL).
So the point of my post is that after all this time, I have learned that if I had educated myself better about my back pain (I didn't know how to at the time) instead of applying my guess work technique, I could have saved myself so much pain and suffering.
Its hard finding the right info and worth more than a person can place on positive result. I implore anyone with back- or any mystery pain- to find a trusted and proven source of information that you can learn instead of years of your own guess work.
I started this thread for people to talk about that source of information that helped them the most. Share it!
