I was not injured,I started with lower back pain after having two kids... The pain has gotten worse the older I've gotten.. I have scoliosis and lower back pain and after the first surgery I started having pain down both legs when I walk and I hurt the whole time I'm standing.. Sitting is ok for about 20mins. Then I have to lay down or stand up.. The pain has affected my everyday life of enjoying any activities with family and grandkids and forget traveling can't go because of the pain..I'm at the point where I don't know what else to do!
