Back pain reduction success!

It's been almost 3 years with pretty constant back pain. I've been to doctors, osteopaths, chiropractors, and physical therapists. I've used CBD to reduce the pain, which sometimes was pretty bad. So one day, I went to the Mailbox Station in Encinitas and was talking to my buddy Art, who is the owner. He uses CBD also. I said I never would have made it without my CBD. He told me that he suffered back pain too until he did this one stretching exercise. Really? One exercise? He told me that he started doing the exercise where you get down on all 4's and lift one leg and the opposite arm and stretch. Then do the other side. We all know this stretching exercise. I went home and did it. As well, I started to do something similar while standing - stretching up with one arm while I pointed the opposite leg back. Incredibly, my back felt better. Was this some kind of power of suggestion? Would it come back? Well, several days later I'm still pretty much pain free. This not to say that I don't have any discomfort. I still do but it's not like before I started the stretching exercise. I feel good, not so "locked up". I still use CBD to insure my muscles relax. If you try this, please always check with your doctor first. What's good for one person may not be good for another. But, if you have chronic back pain, perhaps this may give you some hope that it can improve and maybe you just haven't found the right treatment yet.
