Re: Middle aged Newbie

I'm 50. I have had all kinds of back problems over the years including lower but I have found that the gentle stretches and (slow) rolling in Aikido almost always alleviates any problem. When my back is hurting, I rest one day then head for practice. I am always well the next day.
