Advice on back pain
« on: March 26, 2011, 01:42:04 AM »

Here is a description of the problem I'm having, any advice is appreciated:
* male, 31 years old
* skinny
* sedentary job, 10h+ sitting

* mild chronic pain, most of the time for the last 2 years
* pain is located at the sacrum/buttocks level, usually on one side
* pain has changed sides (at about 6 months intervals)
* aggravates when laying on the back on flat surfaces (I have to avoid sleeping on the back)
* aggravates when running, I had to quit
* if I stretch my back hanging, or after doing a back extension, the pain intensifies when returning to the normal position (and fades afterwards)

* there have been a couple of acute episodes, with severe pain, lasting 1-2 weeks
* there was no severely painful incident at the origin of this problem

I've done some x-rays and they were normal, and the doctor recommended a treatment with ultrasound, currents, baths, excercises, etc.

Thank you

Steve Lockhart
