    Arthritis : : What do folks do for Arthritis in their back below their injury?

    So it seems a lot my pain is due to the Arthritis in my lower back!

    I am a complete Arthritis novice!

    What non invasive things do folks do to help their Arthritis ?

    According to the MRI and the test Steroid shots my Arthritis
    is in my lower back facet joints.. L3/4, L4/5, and L5/S1.

    Suggestions ????

    Cheers.

    I have really been in pain with our whacky weather here in Windsor.

    My hips have been screaming an 8/10 to the point where I had actual tears. My first 15yrs of paralysis were gravy. Paying for that now. I sleep on an air mattress and it hurts to lay down. It hurts to sit.

    OTC pain meds. Heating pads and electric blankets. Will be seeking CBD script for oral pills from my doc VERY soon.

    No other solutions but it?s incredibly frustrating.

    A zero gravity recliner with heat helps quite a bit. I have a human touch. Also a warm pool.
