Neck and back pain
I don’t like taking painkillers, as I don’t believe they do anything other than hide the problem,
Well that’s exactly what they do hence the name. 😀
Find a physio that specialises is back and neck pain, do you have the pain all the time or is there something that triggers it?Posted 4 years agozilog6128Subscriber
Although I’ve never had bad or chronic pain, all my niggling aches/pains disappeared after I started doing regular, proper (barbell) weight training. I guess the pilates might have the same sort of strengthening effect on the body, it doesn’t sound like you’ve been very consistant with that though.
Please note: I am not a doctor/physio/osteo/etc. and am not to be held responsible if your spine explodes.Posted 4 years ago
Err you’re right I haven’t been particularly constant with the pilates but even when I was going every week for about 8 months I still didn’t feel it was doing enough.
Tried the acupuncture route but not for me, I’m a wimp and passed out when they started twisting the needles. 😳Posted 4 years ago
For the last 13 years I have suffered from neck and back pain, due to various accidents, and my job. I have seen physiotherapists, an osteopath, and I have done Pilates on and off for the last few years. Although all have helped a bit none really seem to make that much difference.Posted 4 years ago
I don’t like taking painkillers, as I don’t believe they do anything other than hide the problem, so my question is, is there anything else I can try?midlifecrashesSubscriber
Only surgery/physio/new chair/osteopath/losing weight/gaining muscle/hypnotism/acupuncture/stronger drugs/change of job/kittens/yoga/magic/antibiotics/cheese/riding more/Kylie can properly fix it.
One of those might be true, but I’m not a doctor and you haven’t told us what’s wrong with it, only that it hurts.Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber
It’s pretty constant pain, but it is made worse by doing various things at work.
Stop doing those things. HTH.
Your job shouldn’t be affecting your health. I don’t know what you do, but there may be things you can change to improve it. Have you spoken to any HR / H&S types about it?Posted 4 years ago
