I'm a nurse!
Years of walking concrete, lifting etc.
Then in last 7 yrs
Husband immobilized with Parkinson's....

So better not so much tugging, lifting, carrying weight he could not
Fracture Of "tailbone" from fall
Water exercise and deep tissue bring most relief
Not sweeping motion when I can avoid.
Ginger takes the edge off
I don't do any medication unless it's excruciating.
That makes it worse. Constipation causes pressure from inside
I take flax seed and Miroprx as needed
