welcome back.  seems we have quite a few people on DC with back problems and it really does seem like a difficult thing to endure.. perhaps we should start a thread about it..

jamesdoc01: hope you're on a speedy road to recovery. :)

on another note, i concur that back problems is becoming very common and in fact, i spent much 2006 and early 2007 undergoing a physical therapy to alleviate the pain.

There was a post just a few days back on RirianProject (an excellent health blog, BTW) about working out the lower back.

I've noticed that I tend to catch aches, strains and the like only when I've neglected working out for a considerable stretch of time.

I strongly advise you to forget your idea of starting a thread about back problems.  It would rapidly take over your entire web site.  I got to be born with a birth defect that caused my spine to fail to connect properly and when among my friends it only takes one of them to ask about my back to start a hum of conversation as everyone attempts to complain about their back to the poor soul next to them--who is complaining to the unfortunate next down the line. 
I mean it.  You'll fill the servers.  I'm warning you.

there is a related thread that discusses about the worth of a good chair in order to avoid back problems in the long run.

Do you use a good office chair when programming?

A good chair, proper arm support and a comfortable desk can save you from lots of pain. The chair I have right now has lumbar support built in, and you notice the difference compared to a "normal" chair.
