Hello @trellg132. I'd like to invite @karolyn, @dodir, @pkindron, @pearly, @dorisena, and @noydb to this discussion as they have all discussed arthritis in the back in the past on Connect. @trellg132, what do you currently do for your arthritic back and neck?

Nothing just found out have to go back to chiropractor

Hi, first time here. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with advanced degenerative osteoarthritis. The spine has been particularly painful. 3 months ago, I had cortisone shots in the spine. Hadn’t laid horizontal in two months. 3 weeks after injections, I was able to lay down and sleep for a short time. Since then I’ve been doing back and neck exercises provided by Dan Abrams therapist. Sleeping in bed now and back pain is moderate. These exercises seem to be helping and I would highly recommend them for those with arthritis in the spine. I usually do back exercises every other day. I also got a Tai Chi disc recommended by the Arthritis Foundation. I learned the 12 step “Arthritis” section and recently started on the 24 movement version. Helped my balance, which at 73 years of age is becoming a problem.
