    Default Back Issues, continued.......

    Blew my back out again.
    Word to the wise: If you mess up your back and then get it fixed, don't, under any circumstances, try to show a 17 y.o. how to swing a pick axe.

    Going back in for another round of traction.

    It's amazing how many things you think you can do and later find out that you can't. It aint easy getting old.

    I prefer NUCCA for back treatment.

    At 57 I was batting cleanup for my softball team this year.

    Here's a video that the local television station did on my doctor.

    Interesting video. I'm going in for Vax-D http://www.vax-d.com/ which my nuerosurgeon thinks is witch doctory but it worked for me the first time. I think my nuerosurgeon just wants a chance to cut into me.

    Peter, my main doctor had the same comment about getting old.

    I think my neurosurgeon just wants a chance to cut into me.
    I think surgeons like cutting.
    When I go the U of W Hospital, I see a lot of crooked doctors and nurses walking the hallways.

    I will be going in for a different type of surgery soon myself, but not for the back.

    I have two types of chiropractors, one in Seattle for the neck and back,
    http://www.nuccainseattle.com/

    and a second in Kenmore for ankles, wrists and shoulders.

    And I'm open to other methods too as I learn about them.

    Last December I was told my blood pressure was getting too high,
    So I reduced the amount of beef I was eating, started eating more fish and chicken, took a fish oil capsule a day, and now I'm down to a normal blood pressure range of 118 over 80

    My chiropractor for the neck? It's been five months since I've seen her.
    I went two years one time, and would have been longer except for the thumping I took at Sandy Beach in Hawaii.
    It's not nice when a twelve foot wave pounds you into the sand.

    I'm looking forward to ski season coming up.

    I was doing great and that was the problem. I forgot I shouldn't be doing stuff like swinging pickaxes...

    This is a kick in the pants that I need to start excercising and stretching.
    Hopefully it'll turn into a habit once I'm able to.

    I was told walking for the back is excellent.

    Walking does make my back feel better but then my feet hurt

    Walking is good but be careful on the roads, I got hit in the eye once with a rock when a car sped by. My back was better but I couldn't see.

    Years ago when I whacked my back out I had to mow my lawn. I really had to mow it, we had a brief dry spell (2 days) in between 3 weeks of daily rain. The lawn was overgrown as it was and I couldn't imagine waiting another week or two. Somehow, mowing the lawn fixed my back - I've tried and failed at replicating that ever since.


    Now I don't even mow my own lawn and haven't had a mower in the garage for years.

    Wouldn't The Bowels of Hell be a little warmer than what I've got here.

    Currently in Fort Myers (8:58 PM)
    85 F
    Feels like 93 F
    Humidity: 70%
    Thanks for the offer but I'll have to pass.

    I'm better today....then again I'm also on good old pharmacutical stuff.
    My brother's pushing me to get rid of my (small) gut and get back into shape. That should also hold off the knife happy surgeon for a while. Good a time as any.
