    Default How to deal with lower back pain?

    Yesterday I was playing with my 5 year old niece. I was playing as a frog; squatting down, hopping up and down; when suddenly sharp pains lanced through my lower back.

    I can still stand and walk, it's just there's a dull throbbing in my lower back, and sharp sudden pains in some positions. For example, if I lean forward a certain degree, if I'm sitting on the floor and tuck my knees toward my chest.

    I tried to do a trifecta, but I can't even do a single bridge.

    Any advice on what to do, how to proceed? Any movements/ stretches/ holds to perform?

    Thanks in advance

    My experience is it just needs time to recover, there's no magic stretch or exercise that will help. Maybe some light activity that doesn't bother it, like walking if it feels ok, might help recovery through increased circulation?

    Walking is good, gives gentle movement increasing circulation etc. And for sure follow this:

    Thanks Chris & Geoffrey. I've surfing the web, and it may be, that I have a herniated disc. May be. After all, this is just from seeing youtube vids such as these:

    I think my playing "froggie" with my niece was basically squatting with poor form, and thus I slipped my disc.

    Can't remember if in that book but if not, search out the story of how McKenzie came up with his methods. Quite amazing set of events combined with his willingness to jump on and utilize new info

    Go see a professional, my choice being Chiropractic. The latest studies show conservative care is the right choice.
    Seeking advice or a diagnosis on the internet is a dangerous thing. A disc injury can get worse if you do something wrong. How wrong, iincontinence and worse...

    How do you differentiate between a good chiro and a bad one? I've heard of some bad stories of bad endings due to bad/ incompetent chiros.

    Thanks in advance

    As in any profession some are great, some are okay and some I would avoid like the plague.

    To find one that is good, the majority,:
    Ask your friends
    Look on the web. I try to cross reference SFMA/Fascial Distortion Model or ART/ and see who is around my location. Once you have a couple that you think will work, call them and/or make an appt. If it is a not a fit for you, find another one that is. It is your body, be happy with any Dr that is working with you, MD,DO or DC.

    This should be enough to get you started.
