Stand up straight

Some of you know I have been suffering from a bad back for some time. Had a couple of trips to the Doctor and told I have a trapped nerve. Given pain killers and referred for physiotherapy. However the pain and loss of feeling in my arm has become worse. Turns out I have medical cover so for the first time in many years I went private. Rang the local hospital and seen today!. Turns out that due to my poor posture over the years and possibly the various knee injuries I have a disc in my spine is pressing on a nerve causing the pain and numbness in my arm. After the hour session things have eased a little and I have a list of exercise to do during the day to loosen my back up. Hopefully I can prevent any future damage. So all those people that kept telling me to 'stand up straight Dunn'. You were correct!!
