Firstly, i will introduce myself. My names Alan, Im 35 and have had 2 sets of surgery on my lower back and some more problems appearing.
Well, heres my questions - I keep getting jobs and keep losing them due to back problems. Its not particularly pleasant not knowing how long I will hold up everytime I get work.
Does anybody have any suggestions around jobs that do not impact the back greatly. So far i have tried call centre work (painful), Property sales (great for a while then painful due to not resting enough), Administration (long term seating), Cleaning (always something to lift or move). All of these seem to have an element of long term strain on the back from either being seated for a long period of time or standing for a long period of time.
As I have another 30 years (at least) of work does anybody have any ideas of what roles "work for you".
I have been speaking to a local university today so I am aware that I will probably have to study to achieve this. Im trying to narrow down a course to do.
Thanks for any advice or suggestions.
