I'm new here so I really don't know what to expect. I have chronic neck and back pain, 6 herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, stenosis,... since 1998. I was injured in the line of duty, and lost two careers as a result.

@Cavaliere first I applaud you for your service. But to be injured as a result of your service is even more commendable. Thank you! Have your injuries stayed with you? Have they altered your bone structure, or should I say posture? I know it's tough, but whatever you do, please try to stay as mobile as you can. Start with small controlled movements. Maybe watch a baby move about for a few minutes, and try to mock some of their's. As we get older we seem to lose sight and forget how we're supposed to be fluid in movement, without pain interfering. Another thing you might take notice of is your breathing technique. Start searching for videos on proper diaphragmatic breathing. Watch as many as you can and from there see if your technique is correct.

Hope to hear from you soon!

@MarWin, Thank you for your sentiments. Yes, my injuries above and few others are still with and have become worse with time. I do the best I can with my current situation. Perhaps I'll answer in greater detail later. Best regards!
