Hi, I'm new to the forum, not to back pain.

Hi, all, I'm Bob, I'm new to this forum, I live in the UK, and I've had recurrent back pain since 1978, so, for most of my life, then. I'm nearly 63 years old.

Back pain started for me by digging in my Air Force married quarter garden. Bad technique, click! Then four days laid out on the living room floor. Until recently, each episode followed virtually the same trajectory- I feel a little click, in my spine around waist level, then pain starts to build up, or sometimes comes in hard and fast, rendering me unable to work for four days, after which I'm back to normal. The click's caused by lifting, twisting, reaching for something, and in one case, just getting out of a car! Within reason, the load I lift makes no difference, it's when my spine departs from the vertical. Touching my toes is out of the question!

Anyone discovered any good solutions short of surgery?

Anyway, hi again to the forum
