Purpose of SoreBackBlog
SoreBackBlog is here to help you understand the pain and discomfort you experience with your back. I’m Graham M and let’s find this journey helpful to manage your problem.
What I would like to see is for you to share your experiences and generate sensible discussion about what has worked for you and what hasn’t.
A problem shared is a problem halved. By sharing your experiences with others, it helps you better understand what you are suffering.
I have suffered severe back pain, and continue with some level of discomfort. I can share with you what I found worked and didn’t work for me as this blog progresses. I have also learned how you can challenge medical experts and direct you to self-help if relevant. For over 40 years I have endured different forms of back pain.
I am a self-appointed lay expert meaning I’m not qualified medically but have the experience. Therefore, I do not offer any medical advice and shall leave that to the professional experts.
I would like you to participate in this blog by telling me, by sharing with me – what you’re going through, what’s worked for you, what hasn’t worked for you, and what have you been doing about it?
By your sharing these experiences I would encourage good sensible and mature discussion. I also encourage qualified experts such as: medical doctors and specialists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, and occupational health practitioners, to participate and offer their trained views and opinions.
This may help you towards getting specialist advice, self-treating by various exercises assisted by certain equipment and to lead you into areas of extended reading to better understand your condition.
