Thanks a lot for the post! I had a spinal fusion when younger and my back specialist in NYC said that during certain weather conditions and how I position myself when I sit or sleep for long periods of time can cause pain. I started doing yoga and tried different workout routines, and they have truly made a difference in the pain I experience.
