    What does "MBT" stand for? I tried to look for them online, but couldn't find anything.
    Stands for Masai Barefoot Technology, but just google MBT Shoes and about 100 websites will come up.

    Pilates for core strengthening, get a scan of your back to make sure there are no issues ( schools use to do scoliosis checks) mine wasn't picked up til I was 15 and by then I was too old for a back brace and not bad enough for spinal fusion. Also try complimentary medicine like acupressure, acupuncture or raiki

    When's the last time you had a good physical? I was working as an ER nurse for 25 years, a year+ as house supervisor nights. Kept thinking I needed to work harder to get in better shape. Got so sick, with back pain that kept me from walking upright, spent 2 years and all my retirement savings plus bankruptcy. Turns out I was severely anemic from multiple auto-immune problems. "Multiple Connective Tissue Disorder" has me permanently disabled now, primarily from muscle weakness caused by polymyositis. My point is that you sound like I did, work harder and things will get better. You have a lot of good advice preceding this post, but make sure there isn't a disease process or injury causing your problems. Good luck.
