My job has messed up my back good. I see a chiropractor to keep it in alignment and this has helped.

I am now at the point that the damage has started to compress my discs causing continuous pain and discomfort. I am now using traction and will be purchasing an inversion table to help reduce the compression of my disks.

I don't recommend drugs unless you must. As all they do is mask the pain, making you think you can move around more than your body should. Pain is the bodies protector, it tells you something is wrong and you shouldn't be doing that.

Stretching is a great thing as well. As we age (45 here) we loose more flexibility than muscle mass. Getting on a solid stretching program may help after you are healed.

Not sure this helped or not
