Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board


Hi all.

I have frequently read about the McKenzie exercises. Tried to do Google search and am coming up with nothing. Am I mis-spelling it? Help. I just thought it might help me out to try some - or ask my doc about them! :)

TIA

Hi Patmg & Telzey.

Thank you for responses. I will look for it again through search (and also perhaps Amazon.com). I will check w/ my doc before I start any new 'program'. I have been walking w/ my husband pushing strollers for a few days. About 20 minutes is all I can handle, and NO hills. By the time I got back last night, I could barely stand w/out wanting to whine. Ofcourse, my girls wanted me to push them on the swing. This is so discouraging... and I know that I'm not suffering as much as so many here. I just don't know how people do it. Pain is so invasive..... even if it's not knocking me on the ground, I feel so "less than" - ya know?

ok... don't want to start my week too down!! :eek: If I keep talking like this, I'm gonna cry! :uhoh:
