Has she seen a good chiropractor? What options does she have? Back pain is certainly no fun :(

Once in a while one of us gets injured. What we do is, the injured one gets in a comfortable position, and the uninjured one figures out how to accomplish the act without disturbing the comfort of the other.

In your situation perhaps it might look like her lying on her side with a pillow between her knees, and you doing your part in the spooning position?

Yes, she can still move, it just hurts. She sees a chiropractor and gets regular back massages.

I guess I'm curious as to why she can't have sex.

Does she have slipped discs? I ask because about three years ago, Farmer crushed his L-3 and L-4 on his spine. It was debilitating to say the least. He suffered for a full year before he finally went to see a doc. I know, a year later...crazy, right? He had a x-ray to confirm the dilemma. We ended up going to a chiro near the farm. They set him up on a machine to stretch his back. He was going in to be stretched ever other day. Nothing happened physically after the first month. Then something amazing happened. His discs went back into place! He went from a guy who'd get up in the morning and be done by 10 am to a guy who could slowly expand his days of work til noon. Pretty soon he was working until his normal 8 pm day. Over a year later, Farmer is still amazed at his recovery. Never underestimate the power of God. I happened upon the right person (on here) to set us in the right direction. Today, you would not think anything ever happened to Farmer. His days are full of work without extreme pain. Farmer was 55 at the time. He's been relatively pain-free for over a year. I thank God frequently that the right people were put in our path to go down this journey with a solution. I thank God for decompression therapy. Back massages did nothing long term for him and just felt good at the time.

Daily sex was still possible because Farmer's pain was reduced when he would lay down.
