My daughter has had back for 1.5 year. mri shows no skeletal injury. has had p.t. without any results. still has daily back pain now has started having numbness and tingling to legs. Pain medicine does nothing. unable to attend school due to the pain.
Sometimes a nerve can get pinched between two vertebrea (parts of the backbone) if they are subluxed (slightly out of place -- something that can happen easily and that most people never notice). The person to see for this is a good chiropracter. With luck the cure can be quick and easy.
For my back problems I use
. They have clinics in various cities across the United States. They talk to you, watch you walk and give you exercises. The cost is $250.00. It costs nothing to call and talk to them, their number is on the web site.
If I didn't have egoscue exercises I would have to spend most of my time lying down, and if I don't do them I feel it.
I hope you get this cured quickly. It is heartbreaking for a young girl to be in so much pain, and Spring is just around the corner.
The stretches that I do are the basic basketball stretches. Legs, Hamstring, etc.
I do stretches for my low back, thighs and calves in aditon to the egoscue exercises, especially the day after I have been unusually active. The egoscue exercises were created by Pete Egoscue. If you type his name into Google you will find a list ofhis books and his web site. I still use exercises from his book, Pain Free, to deal with miscelaneous, non-chronic aches and pains that crop up occasionaly.
Nothing drains energy like pain in the back, butt or legs.
