I injured my back on three separate occasions in the 90’s, which caused me ongoing lower back pain for years after. Visits to chiropractors aggravated the issue, though the visits also started me in the right direction for recovery. I was eventually assigned a stretch routine, some of which I discarded due to discomfort. I whittled it down to a routine that worked for me, both in what it achieved and in how long it took to do. However, the initial routine never got rid of the pain. One morning, waking up particularly stiff and wondering what the hell I would be like in 10, 20, 30 years from now, I was seriously thinking I needed surgery. I visited a friend that evening, the one who had set me up with her chiropractor. I told her about the thought of surgery as the stretches I had been given weren’t cutting it. I showed her what I was doing, and she suggested one more to add to my routine, and was surprised I hadn’t been shown it by the chiropractor. The next day, I integrated her suggestion into the routine and the moment I did the movement she showed me, my back made a distinct pop-pop sound that has never happened again since, and my lower back pain was gone.

I have to do the routine laid out in this video every morning and evening. It is explained in the video, so no need to be redundant. It has kept me lower back pain free for 2 1/2 years as of this posting. I would think this would be a good routine for people who sit at a desk all day. My original injuries were while I was sitting at my drum set and reached down to raise the snare (1st injury, mid 90’s), again when I reached to raise the tom (2nd injury, late 90’s) and then the kicker in 2000, when I was lifting weights and turned to look at something while holding weights over my head. That time, my legs dropped out from under me and I did not have use of my legs, or anything below my waist, for 4 days and nights, followed by walking with crutches for a week, then a cane.
