    because of a complication from my pregnancy that is still unresolved. But because I have a six month old baby at home I keep putting myself into positions to keep hurting my back. There's just no other way and no way around it. I wear a brace a lot, but it doesn't help much. I...

    My Spine Got On My Nerves.

    My Back Goes Out More Than I Do!

    Let me start out by saying that I have CP and not sure if the chronic pain is CP related or not. In December 1997 Chronic pain changed my life. At our family Christmas gathering I remember not being able to sit comfortably in my wheelchair unless my dad held the front two wheels...

    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...
