I have had chronic lower back pain for over 20 years. Each type of treatment helps for a while, but never for long. I have pain every day. It takes a constant ritual of stretching, chiropractic, exercise, vitamins, massage, ete to keep working each day. Some things help take the edge off. The chronic pain wears me down mentally and physically,but I keep pushing on...wish every day I could find something that would give me relief.
