What he said.
2 herniated disc, arthritis, sciatica and some other crap ill keep to my self. the side affects of the pills are worse than the pain in my opinion. I love my morning dumps.

Yep. I only do Advil and when the pinched nerve is REALLY bad, maybe a muscle relaxer.  That only happens 2-3x a year though.

Dang you guys are making me feel weak.

I had a crash in November that messed up my elbow. I went to the track a few weeks ago thinking it was healed enough, but it was not. Going back tomorrow to try again. The wife rolled her eyes, but I'm going, and I'll know pretty quickly if I'm healed or should back off. I'm so ready to ride.

As we get older I've found it's best not to push it until you are at least 90% or better. otherwise you'll be right back to square 1 before you know it.
Another thing I've found helpful is major stretching (even on days you don't ride)
It lessens the chance of pulled muscles/tendons/ligaments.
