Absolutely! Fixing chronic issues requires real change in your daily habits. What I did to help, and it has helped ALOT is the following: stopped baby wearing as a regular thing once my baby started walking; when I do baby wear, I change the hold I use EVERY TIME. (Left should hip carry to right shoulder, front carry to back carry, etc). Found better ways to support my body while nursing (but now she has weaned, so it's kind of moot) no matter where I am; I began visiting a chiropractor and learned my poor abdominal muscle tone was keeping my bones and organs in pregnancy position, meaning my ribcage was opened and undue burden was placed on my upper back to compensate. Maybe you too have weak abs? I can PM you the exercises I've been prescribed to help. They'll also help pelvic floor toning if that's been an issue. I also found that shoulder-opening exercises and yoga positions like camel to be incredibly soothing. Most doctors will recommend a muscle relaxer or pain reliever, which I chose not to take. The reason is that MOBILITY is the number one cure. If you just rest your back, it will neve get better. It needs to remain mobile and stay strong, which for heavy heavy pain may mean needing meds. Mine never got to the point of immobility.
