I had a back spasm about a 2 years ago in between my pelvis and cocyx. I could not move at all (sit, bend or lay down), was given a voltarin injection to ease my pain and booked off work.

Every since i had this spasm, when im on my feet for long periods, i get a very painfull back ache in the same region. Once this pain starts, i once again battle bending or sitting and walking increases the pain. I am worried i get another spasm. What can i do to relieve this back pain and spasms?

Dear Backache
Please see a physiotherapist - she will be able to evaluate if you maybe still have a slight spasm that causes the muscle group to get tired easily and will also be able to give you exercises or teach you how to stretch to prevent the spasms.
