    My doctor recommended this to me after years of lower back pain and failed physical therapy sessions. Anybody have experiences with spine therapy?

    No I haven't. When I first visited the physical therapist, she just told me to stretch a lot. And that worked for awhile but when I started playing a lot again, the pain came back and stretching didn't help that much. I ice my back after every practice session and use heat pack after that.

    stretches do help to loosen your back up but if there is a different underlying problem (aside from tight muscles) stretches only do so much.

    I would try some strengthening exercises to build up stomach (include oblique muscles) and lower back muscles. Let me know if you need some help with these. Rickson may also be able to give you some good exercises if you can get hold of him.
