this crap sux! once i get back together again, im doing the stretching excercizes, and seeing a chirprator asap.

thank the big cop in the sky it wasnt a disk or something that would end my career.
When your back calms down, I strongly recommend that you see a Physical therapist. The stretches and exercises will help a great deal. You have to keep your core STRONG (especially the lower back muscles)! I also recommend getting any equipment away from the back of your gun-belt. Cuff straps work great to limit the pressure on the back over a handcuff case. Some guys use a back cushion, but our crown vics have good support.


Good luck,

Don
