Its great to hear you so open about your story, you seem determined to change things which is always the best sign. Im not expert but what I found worked for me was changing the shoes I wore and the bed I slept in. I read up on the whole connection thing between a memory foam mattress back pain etc, and just committed to it. I found my quality of sleep was better but I also felt rejuvenated as each night past. Similarly, wearing shoes with better support (I would usually wear flat shoes like converse) which relieved the strain on my back. These are small differences but they do have a great impactView Thread
Hi guys, I've had persistent problems with my neck down to lower back region. I used to be a laborer but am now in an office job so I don't know how much of an issue that transition has been but I do know its disrupting my working life, social life, sleep, family, everything. I'm being told to buy memory foam pillows as theyre "apparently" the best pillows about but is this just moving the deckchairs on the Titanic or is it liking to engender some positive results. Surgery seems to be out of the question for me for the forseeable future and physio seems to be stalling so Im having to buy pillows, hopefully some cheap memory foam pillows as Im not exactly rich right now. Does anyone reckon they could ease this pain a little?View Thread
