Got up at 5:40am and exercised well. My back still has a way to go. It will take another 12 months before the nerve settles down completely and there is still a great deal of work to do on the structure and posture of my back. With every movement there seem to be all sorts of clicks, cracks and adjustments. Even breathing in is often enough to cause a click of some sort on the right side of my spine. Persistence is the key. Don’t overdo it and don’t give up. I am making progress, good progress, and will continue to do so. Be patient.
