I have sufferred from back ache for quite a long time. If I arch my back backward I can feel the strain at my lower vertebra. Recently my doctor told me that 3 of my lower vertebra have fused together.
I have been doing exercise of bending forward and backward to stress my vertebra. Will this exercise caused more harm to my back or should I continue doing this exercise. I am not on any back ache medication. The ache is not that serious and is manageable. If I do not arch my back I will not feel any disconfort or ache.
If the doctor gave you the exercise to help your back, then you should continue. If he didn't then you should check back with your doctor and ask about physical therapy or exercises. If the dr said to do those exercises it would be to help you loosen that part of your back up. When the dr gives exercises like that it could very well be to help you in the future to avoid more problems. If you are doing that without his knowledge, yes you could cause more problems, even permanent problems.
