    Just Happened

    Haven't had a bad back for a few years. Last night I was kneeling down and something went pop. Its my back. I have always felt sorry for anyone with chronic back problems. I will be okay in about 4 days as my problem is muscular not spinal related. To all of you with persistent...

    I've always had a bad back myself

    and it's rather annoying being young and having this.. Well bad back hah. I can't really lift on to heavy of things anymore, I can't bend real fast-or often, and I can't take being jabbed or hit in the back... And one thing I can't stand is stupid people thinking I'm joking when...

    In November 2012 I hurt my back playing

    football. I should know I'm getting too old for it, but hey. Didn't help matters by shovelling snow every day for what seemed to be weeks, either. Anyway, I got myself fit again and played football for the first time in the first week of April 2013. Unfortunately, I went into...

    My Back Goes Out More Than I Do!

    My Spine Got On My Nerves.

    Ok so the title is pretty funny when it comes to this story. If you followed the cars hitting me experiences, then this is what happened after. I didn't think cars could do more damage, I went to get a full examination. MRI's, ct, x rays, physical, so on. It took about a...
