  •  He has complained of stiffness, and pain over (9+ / 0-)

    the years, but was afraid of surgery, so wouldn't go to the doc.  His walk is different, don't know if this will help him walk right again.  Time will tell.

    He can have a fairly normal life for the next 3 months.  He's a health club person, but he won't be able to lift or do any machines that strain his back.  I told him to walk and swim.  Great exercise.  Oh, and no massages.  He gets one a week.  They might have been hurting him.

    I am a work in progress. Still.

      Muscular massage, or a different kind of therapeutic massage?

      I had a cortisone shot in my back, had ONE pain-free day, went to physical therapy, and the pain came back. UGH.
