Just curious (How can losing weight help with back pain?)
Doc Sust gave me a good kick in the nuts and i am on a serious weightloss plan now.
Now i have lost 10 pounds since fillowing doc advise, am now 200 pounds, what will make a big difference if i go down to 180 pounds?????
Walking is good.

it may decrease anterior translation of your lumbar spine decreasing excessive lordosis and posible nerve impingement. i find that with 90% of people i treat have less lower back pain with weight loss, especialy those who are obese. with your case , get to a comfortable weight and see if you feel less pain. shot for 190 and see how you feel. 180 may be a little to much for your frame

how tall are u? 200lbs shouldnt cause that much back pain i wouldnt think if u are just 20 lbs over weight
nice response doc sust - to bad i have to use a medical journal to translate what u said. lol. but u are correct in that with weight loss it relieves back issues thats for sure

MuckDog i have posted pics for rehab a bit lower check them out, i feel fat LOL, Thanks doc i will shoot for 190 first goal but next will be 180 for sure.

Just remember to cycle that stuff on and off. Time on=time off. You'll use up all your receptors if not.

Doc sust, started the treadmill this morning 30 minutes burned 150cals, i also add my clavicule band on seems to help a lot, i also go for a long walk at night around an hour or so, man this thing gets me sweating, talking brisk walking fast pace.
My body is different i seem to lose weight better by eating light and only 3 meals a day, stop eating at 6pm at night.
Cals are between 1500 and 2000 a day, i am not concerned about keeping muscle on just losing weight and feeling better.
Also training with weights close grip pulley rows 3 X 8-10 reps with heavier weight, hammer curls machine 3 X 8-10 reps, reverse pec deck 3 X 8-10, seated leg curls 3 X 8-10 reps and lying leg curls 3 X 8-10. Try to do this 3 times a week at least go really get theses weak muscles stronger.

Crossing fingers doc sust crossing fingers, weight down to 197 pounds this morning.
Still feeling some pain that comes and goes. Clavicule strap seems to help a bit, will take more pictures after xmas to see posture progression.
