My lower back is a constant source of discomfort for me. I have tried many different things and all have given me only temporary relief from my symptoms. I have tried to go a more non pharmacutical/doctor treatment course and the physical exercise and massage seem to be just as good as any other treatment I have tried. I like the fact that this site gives many varied options form actual surgery, drug and other doctor related options to less invasive ones.
