Hi all, I'd like to start a discussion for ways to manage tightness in lower back, but please just specific to disc degeneration between L5 and S1. For me, it does not cause pain so much but more like tightness that limits flexibility. I am an active and healthy 55 year old man, weight about 200 lbs, 6'1" tall. I do not have pain down my legs.
Small movements like reaching down to pick something up is a chore. I have gotten good at hoisting things up with my toes!
I have tried all kinds of PT and exercise, nothing seems to help. I'd like to try an inversion table. Anyone have experience with one of those?
I could also use to lose 10 lbs, I have not done that but want to. I thought a reduction in weight might help. Anyone with similar situation? Thanks for your comments!
