Re: Strained Lower Lumbar (Lower back)

This is pretty much my injury too. I have gone to the pt 12 times now and today was my last day. They asked me what my pain level was and I said, today its a two. They told me #2 is the magic number and they could not do anything for me anymore. I think this is crazy! I did get hurt at work so its workmens comp and they might just want me back at work. I still have days were the pain is up to a 6 but only 2-3 times a week. Im going on light duty no matter what next week but I do not think I should have pain after 2 months and 12 trips to the pt. My pain is all on my lower left hand side of my back to my butt.

Re: Strained Lower Lumbar (Lower back)

Hip circles.

Lying leg wipers.

Back snaking.

Very slow reverse hypers.

Tommy Kono loosening deadlift.

Single Leg deadlifts. DB, heck no weight. It's just for mobility really.

maybe an inversion chair. my friends parents have one. i need to see about asking them if I can use it on the weekend, maybe yard work in trade or something.

My dad has one I'm able to use it. I actually went to the gym yesterday and inverted by hanging from my ankles. It felt good I'm going to try the inverter chair today at home to see how It works.

Re: Strained Lower Lumbar (Lower back)

I had a low back issue as well ... low and to the right of the spine. From sleeping on a ****ty mattress at a Courtyard. Turns out my back extensors were working all night since my back position was out of whack and strained my QL.

Have been doing Chiro and massage and trigger point on the QL and it's worked magic.

Trigger points on the ql? I may have to try chiro soon cause I can't take this much longer.
