Chronic Back Pain

Hi all

I am new to this thread but not the boards. I hope some can help me out though.

4 years ago I hurt my lower back DJing. I went to see my family doctor several times and he massage my back on those appointments to loosing things up. MY back has been fine since then but in the last 2 months the inflamation coming back.

I am finding when I sit the wrong way or dont have proper back support then my back kills for about 24 hrs. The pain is located on the lumbar(lower) side of my back. My GF last night massage it out and feel great now. I am worried though it will come back since it has been doing this off and on.

I am wondering is there any lower back support cushion I could you for my seat at work, massage, or exercises I can do. I am willing to try anything but I dont want it to get worse. I am thinking of going back to my doctor in the next month is the pain doesn't go away.

Thanks 8-ball

Re: Chronic Back Pain

8-Ball, don't be afraid to go to your doc. Worst case, there is nothing serious wrong. I highly recomend a lumbar support cusion for your chair at work. You can pick one up at an orthopedic supply store or order one online for about 20-30 bucks. I use one in my car because I drive alot for work. I don't know how I survived without it.

Good luck

Alan

Thanks again...I haven't had the time to go out and actually look for a product like this but since I have an idea that this cusion works well for a reasonable price then I will give this a try. It may take sometime to look for it but I hav an idea of a few stores around me that may carry somthing like this.

Thanks
