So I'm off for round three with the Physio (actually Stregthening and Conditioning trainer but I dont want to split hairs) and I'm still stiff from last time.

I've naffed out my back basically. Its something to do with my posture being rubbish and hardly doing any exercise in the last 2/3 years sad.gif resulting in compressed disks in my lower back-or more accurately PAIN!

I've a fairly normal, maybe a twitch above average, pain tolerance threshhold but my back's ben screwed for well over a month now (despite periods of inebriation that have led to running man mistakes- OUCH)

Apparently I'm very flexible for my size and shape (ie short stocky fat git/ beer barrel-like take your pick wink.gif ) I just need to condition some unused muscles and work on my general fitness while becoming more aware of my body as a whole unit. All good, truly, but once I've done my exercises at home, because I'm so unused to using certain muscles the sore pain is replaced by stiff pain huh.gif mad.gif Just want to be rid of it

Its worth it in the long run- on this occasion the saying is accurate but why cant there be a method to do it all without the pain??????????

I had physio on back a few years ago. I'd been in serious pain for about a year and the doctor had continually been giving me ineffectual pain killers. Eventually I pushed for physio because I knew that it was going away. The doctor put in an appointment request for me with the warning 'it'll probably be over a month before they can see you'. Three days later they rang me to make an appointment in the next week, and they were annoyed the doctor had left it so long. A month later the exercises that they had given me had completely cured the pain. It was bliss!

'Glad to hear you're getting treatment Smiler, the pain is well worth it!

So, in conclusion, I love physiotherapists.

In a postscript, I really hate typing the name of their job.

I was a bit confused until I realised what you were calling 'physio' we call 'PT'. I had to get PT for my back, too, a couple years ago. It hurts more before it hurts less, but it's well worth it in the end, and whereas the painkillers just put off the pain until later, the excercising and wotnot really works in the long run. Unfortuneately what I learned is that I need to keep up some of my excercising on my own still, or I just mess my back right up again! gah. Hope it helps, and stick it out, smiler, you'll be glad later.

I assume that by physiotherepy, you all mean the same as physical therepy? Assuming so, I had back surgery for scoliosis (curves in the spine and I mean some SERIOUS curves) and after the surgery they told me to do pt and I never did it and what do you know, I'm in terrible pain most of the time. What are some of the things the physitherepist told you to do to strengthen your back?

Make sure you keep up the exercises that they assign you - it's essential for the treatment to work.
