The prolapse in my back is becoming worse. I've tried to strengthen my back, and I've been to a physiotherapist every week since half a year. Walking uphills is the worst trigger - until yesterday.
I have become very aware of lifting correctly, but what can I really do? I don't think that I did anything wrong yesterday other than actually lifting. On the vehicle yesterday we had a light-weight patient (120 pounds), no trouble - but when I got out of the ambulance to get the stretcher out, I again got this shooting pain in the left thigh/knee/foot.... It hasn't stopped yet. It's not just the aching. This comes with other - not mentioned - problems too.
The good thing is that it's not slippery outside yet and today, as yesterday, I don't need to change to winter-tyres....
Sciatic problems and prolapse - NOT FUN!
