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?
Shot in the dark but I can only report on data of one, my own.
I had some serious issues with everythig from lower back down. in 2006 I tried wearing MBT shoes. Many years latter, I'm much better. I now wear mainly MBT shoes at work for for 45-50 hours per week I'm walking and standing on MBTs.
You have to start slowly because it takes time to build up your strength. If interested, look for a discount one on amazon'' of f''l****. Normall price is 250 but they are well made and lasts many years.
