Doing what I can, John. Survived a 14 hour shift despite the back (no easy task, I assure you).

I have back/neck issues, too. I also have an emergency supply of muscle relaxants!

One thing I do that seems to help is regular deep tissue sports massage. It's not inexpensive (I go every other week) but I think it's good insurance against injury---plus I do recover faster...

This time I was cleaning and was already on my hands and knees when I leaned forward to grab some napkins that had fallen behind a piece of furniture - SNAP!
That was it. Thank GOODNESS for muscle relaxants.
The last time - just a few weeks ago, I bent to pick up a towel. As my doctor has told me though - it could be worse if I wasn't an athlete. It has been, too. Just a couple of years ago I was completely unable to walk for several days and it took me more than a week to get to a semblance of normalcy.

Well I am glad you recover fast, I didint. I missed 32 days of running with mine and all I did was bend over to tie my shoe. Hope the injury is minimal and you can get back out there.

I do seem to recover quickly at times. I think it's force of will....

Ya, I just went through this a few weeks ago. At first I thought this one was worse but perhaps not. It certainly felt it at first. After my wife came and helped me stand up I had her get my emergency supply of muscle relaxants and took those immediately. I think I'm going to get through the day but it's really too early to tell. I don't really have any choice though...

That is not good, so sorry to hear. After doing that in October, it's my biggest worry of happening again. Hoe you feel better soon.

I'm sorry to hear this. You seem to be a DANG good healer, though, if the past year is any indication of your recovery times.

Not good. I was unable to stand for several minutes without assistance and somehow I have to find a way to work a 14 hour shift today.... I'm not feeling too positive about this...
