Working thru injuries/ailments

What injuries/ailments is anyone having to work thru right now or had to work thru this season?

I have a lower back problem that flares up about once a year. Got me about a month ago.

Could barely walk when I first got out of bed in the morning. Took half a day to get loosened up and pain pills to kick in before I could start to do any mowing.

It lasted a full week and the mowing was torture but I got thru it and I'm good now. I actually felt better at the end of the day from all the movement.

After all these years I finally had it x-rayed at the Orthopedic Center in town and everything was ok. They explained how its happening and suggested PT.

I went to PT and they gave me some exercises to do to help prevent it from happening again.

Thats the life of a solo operator, do it or it doesn't get done. I did have some LCO buddies that I trust that would have helped me out.

I just had to tough it out but its nice to know I had help if needed.
