does the doctor not offer any pain relief and exercises she can do to strengthen the area. maybe get her referred to a physio to help her. meanwhile heat patches from the pound shop are a great help

My mother-in-law has exactly the same thing! She's used a tens. She also does Pilates, physio and as much walking as possible. She also bought an electric massage recliner chair which helped a lot.

Hi. Have u tired natural remedies would be plenty of ginger, garlic and turmeric all are pain receptor, might help. Also mindness and breathing exercises might help reduce pain a little. Sorry to hear about your mum. My mum is paraylsEd and has dementia so she in pain and also doesn’t remember who we are.

I have a bad back (not the same as your mum though) and visit a chiropractor regularly. I get excercises specifically meant for me & my condition. It's not for everyone but I find it helpful.

JohuraBegum No I haven't tried those things. I do feel for your brother though. When not at the chiropractor I use ice packs and/or heat packs and make sure that I do the exercises that I am supposed to do for my deteriorating condition.

I have had various issues with my back and the GP and the physio both suggested Bio freeze gel. It does cost a bit but its amazing. The best thing i have ever bought.
