You think we're NOT kneeling by the bathtub?
Boy do I have lower back issues. Thank you for the tips!
my work offered a "healthy back" class. It was wonderful!
Best way to protect your back - While sitting, keep your feet behind your knees. This way the back does not have to bear undue force.
Instead of bending over to wash a pet, find a self-serve dog wash. Most have elevated tubs so you don't have to reach. :-)
To chaplaintwagner: It is never to late. I was morbidly obese at 55. I decided it was time to do something. I got a diet plan at the Hospital, got a tredmill and started to work. It took me about 1 1/2 years to loose 100Lbs, I wanted to do it slow. I am now 71, and I will always be a work in progress, but I go to the GYM every other day, and try to eat right most of the time.
See if you can set up a work station where you can sit or stand. Sitting is the new health hazard, right along with smoking.
I saw this thread right when I was having problems with my back. Seems I always see something relevant to me at that time. Pretty cool!
This is so very interesting! Thanks for sharing.
A few years ago I had a herniated disc. Physical therapy helped but I read about a DVD for back pain. It is Viniyoga Therapy by Gary Kraftsow for lower back, sacrum and hips. It was a lifesaver for me. Still do it occasionally when I get twinges of pain. Well worth the $15 at Walmart.
Thanks so much for this.
It's NEVER too late to start working toward fitness.
Being morbidly obese and working a lot at a computer, my posture, well... just sucks. I suffer from all kinds of pain. I was wondering, being 45, is there hope that I can get my back into shape and fix the posture still or is it too late and pretty much damage is done? Is there any exercise or stretching I should be doing or can do to improve things? May not be the right place to ask, if not I am sorry.
