I agree that water exercise is the best thing all around. I have chronic pain among other things and when I am in the water the pain isn't so bad.

Tia, I have the same problems, and others as well. The procedure they did on my back to help it - didn't. I am told that I'm not a candidate for surgery. I was also told "don't bend, don't twist". That's a tough order to follow, but as time goes by I am finding that it's really an important order. As for exercise - how do you do that when you can't bend or twist. My best suggestion is water exercise - it works well and does much less damage.

This is a long story that I won't go into here. But I had a lumbar puncture done and had quite a bit of back pain from it. So the Dr that did the puncture did an MRI of my low back. I have arthritis and some stenosis. 2 spots on Lumbar Spine mostly and on Thorocic. I have actually talked at length to a dr about this.

My chiro said stregthen my core and to not arch my back! Does anyone have any suggestions? Exercise, ways to stretch? Anything as I have other joint issues such as neck problems (arthritis probably), arthritis of the knee caps, Head pain, head aches. Jaw pain etc.

TIA!
