Wondering how many of you have had any back problems since you began flying for a regional? Have never had any kind of trouble till about 2 months ago, MRI showed a badly herniated disk. Pain was incredible. Tried physical therapy, epidural injections, chyropractor, etc., etc. Eventually came down to having surgery to repair. Currently recovering from that now. Can't really pinpoint what may have caused all this trouble other than bending and twisting while loading flight bag and/or luggage. Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has had similiar trouble. ALPA doc says that this is very common among line pilots.
