One of my friends is in a pretty big metal band. Hes a guitar player, and they tour ALOT, all ovet the country. He has pretty bad back problems. He either has a slipped disc or something in his spine is crooked. its gotten so bad that some shows he has to sit down. The fact that he is always on tour doesnt help the situation. What can he do? He has a back brace that he wears sometimes but I dont know if that will offer any sort of solution (other than surgery, ofcourse). Will yoga help? Deadlifting? (he used to play football and was a wrestler in high school). any kind of medicine?
