For those of us whose work involves a lot of heavy lifting and straining throughout the day, having your back "go out" is something to dread.
Those who have experienced this will know exactly what I mean. Those who have not have my sincerest wishes that it never happens to them. I would not wish it on my worst enemy!
A wrong twist or improper lift puts me on the disabled list. I haven’t found a quick fix and the medical establishment has little to offer for relief. I usually end up "treating" it with a combination of chiropractic visits, ultra-sound massages, long hot soaks in the bathtub, and as little movement as possible.
I guess the only advice I have today is be good to your back. Living and working with a bad back cab be nearly intolerable.
