I have always done my own housework and yard work as well as electrical and plumbing repairs, painting, etc. now I let things go until I absolutely have to do them. Somehow, I can manage to work through the pain. The only thing that has helped so far is core strengthening and stretching. But I have a ways to go to say I am out of pain.
