I've read alot of posts with problems in lumbar spine area.
Anyone having "stiffness" or difficulties standing up once seated?
The feeling of something "catching" and not being able to straighten up?
I've had no problems until about a year ago, but find if I do alot of walking it isn't as bad.
I'm now 43 and am wondering if anyone has experienced this and found any good solutions. What works for you?
I used to swim alot, but live in an area with no pools and very few gyms.
Anyone out there have a back exercise routine they can share?
Any suggestions would be helpful. I haven't gone to have any x-rays yet, so I have no idea what the problem is.
I noticed someone said if your rod is broken get it taken out. Mine broke within two years after my surgery. It is still in place and itself has not caused any problems.
