It could also depend on what types of exercise you're engaging in. For instance, biking and swimming are excellent for your back. But high-impact exercise (like running) can do damage...swimming is really the best for back problems as it helps to strengthen and stretch the back.

More likely #3, not enuf stretching. Working out, over time, has the negative side effect of bunching up the fascia putty like tissue of the muscles. Since muscles in their fascia determin where bones will be plaved, and how flexible you are, its bunching up will cause the conditions. Age is not really a determining factor, in fact, altho many people have been taught that as we age our bodies deteriorate for some unknown reason, perhaps mean venusians with ray guns, eh. Really, tho, it is almost always bunch up. You can increase nutrition of sea vegetable, cartrot juice, dark green leafy vegs like spinach, parsley, kale, etc. Try my website info email me if you like.

Every morning when I get up, I find that my back is actually creaking-- that is, it makes sounds! The first sounds are about 5 clicks in mone direction and if I bend in the other direction, about 3 clicks. It feels as if some part of my back is catching. There's not really pain, just stiffness, but it just started recently. 1. Is this a natural part of aging? (I'm in my early 40's ) and/or 2. a result of too much/too litle exercise? (I work out about 3x/wk.), and/or 3. not enough stretching during the day? 4. something else? (What I'm scared of is OA or something like that). Anyone else have this problem? Any ideas, insights, suggestions? Thanks, Mr. DNN
