I can only do little at a time when I bend down one time OK then second time forget it. My back on right is so tight I feel it is going to break like a piece of wood. My left is in slot of pain but it don't feel like it will break in half . I feel like I will walk bent over and not straighten up. I am 54 years and have the back of a 80 year old my doctor said.
