    Back pain
    An_267486 posted:
    I have been dealing with back pain for 10 years now. I have rib cage problems and mid back problems. I've been dealing with it on my own and have never asked anyone for help so this is new for me. I just want to know from others how do you cope on those days where it's hard to get out of bed? How do you keep on going when little things irritate you because of the pain? Are there any exercises that you do? I do some stretches but am always looking for new things to try.

    Treatments for back pain vary depending on how long you have had the pain. I also had faced the trouble and pain in a specific part of my back. I have been taking physiotherapy treatment from physiomobility clinic in Richmond hill for the past few months. Now my back is feeling much better where I have increased my physical activity by doing regular exercises suggested by my doctor. A physiotherapist can suggest you specific exercises to treat and manage your problem. Most people recover quickly from their back pain if it is managed properly.
