Topic - Bad back, help needed.

leeangell - on 27 Jan 2013
Hi

I had a bad car accident when I was 18 and broke my back in three places, ever since I have had a bad back, I've always put up with pain in past but 20 odd years later and nearly 20 years of farming and generally abusing my body the pain is quite crippling, I'm off on a couple of climbing trips in the next few months and am not looking forward to spending days on end carrying a heavy rucksack, I was wondering if anyone had any tips for coping with or reducing the pain, it has been suggested using a weightlifting belt, but while this may be ok walking, I'm worried that while climbing it would just be a hinderance not to mention interfearing with the harness, any ideas? I'm only 40 and not ready to give up the mountains just yet!
