Good morning all G'day Pat
My thoughts and warm wishes go out to all who have troubles and worries ((hugs))
I have been so fortunate with my back - when in my late 20s I first appeared to be developing 'the family back' responsible for many operations and incapacity in my family, my GP got me an appointment with Gregory Grieve, a manipulative physiotherapist, who had recently moved into the neighbouring small town. My GP said that he had an amazing reputation and that he was thrilled he'd moved into our area. A course of treatment with him, including instruction on what to do at the first sign of trouble, and another course a few years later, and my back has been virtually trouble free ever since - it wasn't until his death that I realised just how lucky I was that my GP knew of him and got me the appointment http://www.bodyworkmovementtherapies.com/article/S1360-8592(02)90296-2/pdf .
It's only when I've disregarded his instructions that I've had twinges and even then, following the advice he gave years ago has sorted things out.
If you have a back problem I'd recommend seeking out a qualified Manipulative Physiotherapist.
