My story is more like a journey through time. I have experienced back-related issues ever since my first back injury while serving in the military. For many years I was feeling great, until another injury affected my back. At that point, my days were spent in survival mode.
My daily routine was simple - get up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, sit - and then repeat all over again the next day. I was trying so hard not to do anything that would aggravate my back in order to go to work pain free.
