I spend a lot of time in the pool with people with back issues (physical therapy). Something I would recommend you look into if it is available to ya.

mike those are beautiful, i know the time will come when you will be at it again, and when you do, i want to commission a walnut bowl from you…so i want to be your first customer when you start wood working again…i just love that walnut bowl you did, but i have to say i love them all…you sure know how to turn buddy…take care and know that the day will come when you will feel like doing the work again…i know about the pain, but i think that moving and walking are important…even if its just around the yard…you will get more strength and you will be able to walk further as time goes by…but keep moving mike…if you dont…your muscles will get to weak and it will make your back worse…so even though you might have the pain now…somehow keep moving..ive dealt with mine since 1994…and thats the one thing ive learned…do as much as you can stand…move as much as youy can stand…then rest…and when you feel like you can get up …do it…and move as much as you can each time…my prayers are with you mike…grizz…bob
