Treatment Ratings

    Rest, Brace, Heat

this is transitory - it manifests with physical activity: we are working on our house to sell for retirement; ladders, plumbing, electrical, etc etc and next day walk a bit stooped until back straightens out. brace from my son's wrestling days helps. several extra strength arthritis tylenol helps as well. 2-3 days and back pain subsides
