This may help for everyone

Complete bed rest (except for eating, going to loo, etc. which can't be done in bed) anywhere from 3 days to 1 week.

You owe it to yourself. Please give it a try, if you haven't yet.
Stop the further damage to spinal structure and start the recovery process.

Please give your body a chance to heal.

Re: This may help for everyone

Given a chance to rest, the body can make a remarkable recovery.

Just not to sure the bed is the best place for that. 95% of us have poor sleeping habits, and beds that are not ideal for us. Half the time the bed is the reason for our bad backs.

Re: This may help for everyone

Having arthritis, laying in bed is the last thing to do. If I lay there too long I can't move enough to get up. It does sound like a great thing though, kudos to anyone who can pull it off!

Bed rest? Might be a good thing if you can sleep in a bed. I couldn't.

Agree. I know that when I slept in a bed it only made my neck worse.

If I had a couch, I'd NEVER sleep in my bed again.

I was under the impression that bed rest was the worse thing for you my old doc alwaytold me to be as mobile as possible without causing yourself pain. Keep stretching and as limber as possible. It is not often that most of us can get out and walk a marathon but simple stretchex on the couch, in bed, in the shower or pool can do wonders, you have to get your blood pumping and oxygene to your joints.
