Long Term Chronic Back Pain Sufferer.

Hello, thank you for allowing me to join this forum.

I am a 73 years old woman, I live in the North of England and I have suffered from chronic back pain since 1976, when I lifted a typewriter at work. I have had all the treatments available including a laminectomy in 1983, the only thing I I haven't tried is being treated by a chiropractor.

I am married with two children, I had to retire from work in 1987 due to a second accident at work.

I hope that this introduction is enough,

Thanks again,

MaryL

    Hi Tina
    Thank you for your message, I am sure that I shall find this site very helpful, this back pain is very debiliating isn't it? It has affected my mobility too, I can only walk a few yards, out of doors. Osteoporosis has now got into the act, ah well, keep on trucking. Take care of yourself.
