Hi guys, first time poster here. I'm 34 years old and have been experiencing lower back pain(left buttock+leg) for about 8 years, which seems to be caused(or aggravated)from careless weight lifting in my early twenties.
Nowadays, I stretch and work my core almost daily, with a program that was set up by a certified athletic therapist and I am contact with a very well respected osteopath. I eat well, with a diet high in flavonoids(anti-inflamatories) and try to sleep well too, which is hard with s six month old!! The two sports that I love the most(to play) are tennis and golf, but both cause me pain.
My question for you guys is how do you come to terms with the fact that you will possibly be in pain for the rest of your lives? What bothers me the most, is the fact that this pain can come on at anytime with no notice, completely unprovoked in certain cases.
