    Loved the post! Great information and very interesting. God bless you and your mom . Please thank her for her service. Same to you if you served!

    I am an ex army person. So I also have a heart for our service members and their after service care. We know it needs lots of work. I know first hand.

    I moved from Virginia to Michigan recently. Lot better system here!!! But thank you for pointing to an area that is glossed over.

    A bad back is a huge issue for quality of life

      Let me first express my happiness for your health and coming back to your family safe. My mother, as I told Katie, hasn’t served. She got her empathy for service men and women as a result of traveling the world and treating men and women suffering from broken bodies and spirit—sometimes as a result of war related injury. Her stories of those brave men and women really touched me and I knew I had to put her concerns in a post.

    What an interesting article, thanks for sharing! I love the inspiration from your mom. I am a long-time back pain sufferer and can attest to how it impacts so many areas of life. I can’t even imagine how terribly our combat heroes suffer from back pain, having to put their bodies through so much. One more reason to thank our vets and be grateful to those who are risking their lives and health for us each day!

      Hi Katie,

      Thanks for the kind words. My mom didn’t serve. However, she has traveled the world and in her capacity as a skilled nurse saw, comforted, and treated men an d women with serious wounds. She has a lot of empathy for those who she believes risk much but don’t get the help they need.

    Hello here. It is an interesting and informative read. It is great that you can offer the help for military personnel.
    They served country when we were safe and without problems living civil lives.
    Back pain can be devastating especially after injuries.
    Your suggestion about magnesium is straight to the point. Magnesium is vital mineral which participates in over 700 enzymes interactions.
    Magnesium oil or magnesium citrate make miracles in the calming, relaxing and soothing way.
    How about specific exercises? I guess that exercises can help immensely too.
    All the best, thanks for great information. Nemira.

      Hi Nemira,

      Thanks for your feedback, and your info on magnesium is very helpful. In fact, a few days ago I talked to a friend who informed me that his doctor prescribed magnesium pills to help him sleep better. So you’re right about the calming and relaxing affects of magnesium. As for specific exercises, Yoga is a good way to relieve back pain. You can catch the exercises that I recommend with this link. https://healthybacksupport.com/yoga-poses-for-back
