« on: September 01, 2008, 08:44:18 PM »
Steve Thanks for this forum!   i got this low back pain 2 months ago. 1st test, x-ray of lower back... findings was my lower spinal cord is straight.  doctor advised me that i need bed rest and that lower back muscles causing  the straightening of my lower spine. dont know how true
I did bed rest but still pain is present.  been sleeping for a month into a hard surface n still no change.
what else should i do. this thing is annoying
thank you and best regards

Blu, sometimes the muscles lock up so tight the rest doesn't do anything and that sounds like your problem. Try and find someone good at deep tissue massage and have them loosen your erector spinae muscles and see if that fixes it. You may need it done a few times for it to hold but if after one there is no difference then it probably isn't the cause, and my self treatment program maybe be the best way for you to work out what is happening.

Regards
Steve

Hi Blu, deep tissue massage for the whole body would be unlikely to be done by the physio as it takes an hour of hard work, one on one, but you should be able to find someone listed as a massage therapist that will do this or look for a Myotherpist and see them.

The self treatment program is available through the link here www.backpain.com.au/help

Good luck,
Regards
Steve
