    I work along side my crew, as I am an owner/operator. I have been having some back and hip pain, so I have been talking to my chiropractor. He told me to stretch a lot. I want to know what you ladies and gentleman do to stay healthy. To formally ask the question, what do you do for your muscle and joint health?
    I am also wondering if it is time for me to just manage the business, installs, and designs. That is a question I am sure only I can answer, but I would like to hear from anyone who has been in a similar situation before.

    I run the day to day opperations for Two corporations with my office manager 5 days a week. When I demo my product the Easy-Lift Harness, I usually have it on 80% of the time for a two or three day show. I have been working like this for the last 10 years and gradually made the transition from offering full service design, install and maintenance to where I am presently. I do bike most every day and workout twice a week at the Y.
    Yes I also stretch before and after my work outs and keep my self well hydrated.
    Thank God I have no know medical issues and I can be very happy about that.

    Im going to bet money now that the back pain will get worse and the hip will get worse also, your going to end up getting diagnosed with a labrum tear in the hip. Just had mine done in march. Skip the chiro practer and go to the orthopedic. They will do an arthrogram mri were they inject dye into your hip joint. I finally got mine done when I started to get the back pain along with the hip pain.
