I have answered back to you yesterday evening but it doesn't appear... (?)
I have back problems since about 10 years. It is a chronic pain but like many people I have learnt to deal with it and try to live a normal life. However, I have a physical job and a month ago, I put a tractor wheel at the back of my ute. It was too heavy and felt the pain instantly. Acute pain, impossibility to move and especially to sit down and stand up for a "long" time.
I have spent a day in hospital and had X rays : 2 disks pop out L4/L5.
I have taken medicine (anti-inflammatories) as the pain was too strong but I personally don't consider it a long term solution to treat back pain. I am more for a natural/mechanical approach to solve the problem with gentle exercises in a right position, relaxation... I have a back belt which is good usually but I would like to be able to manage my pain on a long term basis. I have tried inversion tables but don't like the sensation of it and I find it hard to put a foot on the ground after.
I understand we share our back pain localization but maybe not the same problem and we don't really have the same approach to deal with the problem. I consider, the use of medication on a long term basis is not a solution and particularly anti-inflammatories can be dangerous for your health (stomach problems...). This is my opinion and I respect yours. My back is still sore. To be honest, I think my back problem will never be cured but I want to be able to manage my pain on the long term.
I don't believe in miracle products but I think some natural exercises can relieve.
So, my question on this forum is regarding the device called Spinup as I have heard about it. I would like to know if someone has tried it or a similar device and what do they think about it from experience.
