I've had lower back pain for about a year. MRI's show not unusual damage for a 50 year old in terms of disc and arthritis stuff. I've tried various strengthening and stretching exercises, but nothing helps. I continue to do all recreational activities and weight training I've always done, since they don't seem to aggravate the problem. (Sitting and lying down are the bigger problems.) Anyone here have any experience with any treatments that actually greatly helped their long term-ish low back pain? (I never did have much success trying to treat my neck for similar issues. The pain just gradually turned into a chronic stiffness.) I'm worried that the only thing that's going to help -- if anything does -- is time. Anyone beg to differ?
