I have tried almost everything. Everytime my back "goes out" I do what I have to do to get back on my feet again. I live in constant pain, not too severe but enough to let me know it isn't cured! PT, weight loss, exercise, heat, ice, stretching, those hot braces and posture modifications. It works somewhat but, to say I'm cured would be an understatement.
