Everyday. Chiropractor helps for a few days. It seems to be getting worse as I get older. I'm at the point where I have to roll out of bed in the morning because I can't sit up. It gets better as the day goes along, then the cycle starts all over again.
Use a wand with Teflon glides. Clean right & left sides as equally as you can. Get a whirlpool jetted bath tub. Use it everyday after work. Jets pointed to back.. Hottest h2o you can stand. Use a back brace ( google saunders back braces. Look like bike shorts). Ice as needed. Sleep on back with pillows under your thighs to align your spine. Hire a helper. Just some thoughts
I did expensive beds, every new tool known to man in the cc world, chripractor and massages. The only thing that actually helped me is my diet and exercise. When I fall off one or the other or both, I feel like he'll and want to pop muscle relaxers so I can't feel it.
I have been cleaning for many a year.. I have had rotator cuff surgery, chiropractors forever, back massage seems to last longest, but exercise and diet are key for me. The latest thing I found is that the side affects from cholesterol meds can really cause problems for your muscles.. don't overlook this if your on statins of any type.
