have re-learned to do things since your back pain started? I have had low back pain with sciatica for the past 9 months and just this week found out I have a herniated disc at L5-S1 and one of my vertebrate is shifted out of position. So I am just kinda curious and thought it might be kinda fun to see what kind of things you have learned to do differently and how. I do pretty much everything straight backed, i put my socks and shoes on with my feet sideways LOL, if my pants fall while I am putting them on I use my feet to pick them up. I wince when something falls on the floor and I have to pick it up. I am still trying to figure out a good way to trim my toe nails - so if anyone has any tips....LOL
PS - A little history since I am new: I have an appointment at a neurosurgery and spine place 10/17 so I am hoping the can bring me some releif. I have gone to the Chiro and that seemed to help but pain came back I have never done any type of therapy. Pain is the worst when I try to stand up from sitting or come back up from bending over. I usually have to hold on to something til the pain starts to fade and then after about 15 steps I am usually ok with maybe a little pain in my butt LOL.
