^ This. Had a shit back (couldn't even bend down to tie my laces at one point), and went to the physio it got so bad. one look, gave me a sheet of glute and hip flexor exercisese to do, been fine since.

Been a few times over the years when backs flared up, always just given Solpadol (co-codamol) which makes me feel like trash when it's worn off.

Also seen physio and it is my upper glutes/lower back tie-ins. Now that I don't train weights any more and just box 3-4 times a week it could just be overly tight, but it's literally painful standing up from my desk at work.

I suffered from lower back/pelvic pain for a lot of years. The key to me is core strength and very consciously brace your inner core muscles to fix the lumbar region whilst carrying out at risk movements. Stretch to loosen your hamstrings/glutes etc. These are always tight in people who sit a lot. They need strengrgening and flexibility.

^^ this also there’s a few videos on fixing ‘anterior pelvic tilt’ on YouTube that show how effective core exercise and stretching out your glutes is for posture and lower back pain.

Screwed my back up on night fill at a supermarket when I was 22. Couldn't walk for 3 days after one shift. Went to physio and got exercises I have to do every morning for the rest of my life. I stop for two days straight, 26 years after the injury and the old pain comes back. One of the biggest regrets of my life is not getting a lawyer at the time and getting workers comp. I don't believe anyone who says they don't have any regrets, or maybe I'm just a fucking loser coz I can list 50 regrets just off the top of my head.

Yip - Fucked lower right back lifting a server out of a car 2003 -Such a bad experience I remember that weekend vividly. Felt nothing whilst shifting server but the next morning unable to move!! Home alone as the lass I was living with at the time was away and couldn't do shit!! in retrospect quite funny remembering being unable to get out of Bed, having to do a weird roll and flip. Its only till your back goes pop you realize its connected to everything.
Rest and light exercise is ALL you can do - Still twinges to this day.

I only train boxing now 3-5 times a week, and i'm still okay a majority of the time but sometimes when I roll or slip a shot it just pings back to life and fucks me over. Not ideal if I'm sparring or something.

I'll have a go on those stretches on the last page, see if it helps. In the mean time, I would also like to hear Mil's 50 regrets hit list.

A mate in work buys them for his Mrs as she’s not too well and pays £75(?) for 28 tablets or capsules however they come. Says she says it seems to help her a bit.

Sounds like it’s something you need to keep on top of to get the benefits and not just a few here and there.

I heard that to actually reap the benefits of cbd oil you would literally have to be consuming one of the little bottles per day not a couple of drops on your coffee in the morning or whatever is recommended!

I vape it daily. Could be placebo but I feel it helps with post-training recovery and sleep. Been vaping it for about 4 months, much cheaper than oil drops, doesn't taste like earthy shit and supposedly better absorption to the body

yeah anything sold legally in the UK at holland and barrett etc is complete bs. most of the time its mixed with some melatonin or some other active ingredient so it can be marketed as "sleep aid" or whatever. it is a complete con but all the divs are lapping it up of course
