Yes going to a therapist, only 2 sessions so far. One book I read said much back pain is repressed anger.... I think losing weight is the very most important thing! No bones in our bodies can support obesity. We all must strive to be a normal weight and strong! Preaching to myself also here.

I think it sounds like a great idea! I have anxiety issues as well as as chronic pain with my lower back; I am desperate enough that I am going to see a hypno-therapist this week for my anxiety...Wish me luck! God bless you and yours!!

My daughter was given this book by the orthopedic surgeon's office when she was in high school (about 9 years ago). She was playing soccer and softball and started having lower back pain especially after softball. They gave her this book and sent her to a physical therapist for electric stimulation therapy for muscle spasms and the problem cleared right up. It is highly rated on Amazon and from what I remember it looked like a common sense approach to strengthening and stretching out your back.

So the guy seems good. I got actual answers and he asked me what I thought about my situation. The nerve conduction test was different...jolt through the nerve make sure it still worked even if i can't feel it. The muscle test was a little ouchy...needle into the thigh and back of calf then hooked up to a machine. He said that I may not ever get back to work like a was due to this kind of injury...modified..basically no patient care.Can't to that so...Gave me that name of a book for my issue that has things to do and things to avoid..."treat your own back pain' Robin mcKenzie...He also suggessted a epidural nerve block because i could work harder on my core with out the pain holding me back (even if I never return to work at least my core will keep my back stronger) for 6 months. So I am referred to the pain clinic (another 2 month wat list) to see if I want to do that.
So I hope this helps someone.

Has anyone been to a physitatrist for your back pain issue? I have an appointment with one this week and am wondering what to expect. I've looked it up on google and have an idea but that's the extend of my knowledge.
