Q.

I have had lower back pain for about two weeks

Good day, I have been suffering from lower back pain for about 2 weeks. The pain is isolated to my spinal area in that reqion. The pain is more severe at night or when i lie in bed and want to get up again. it is slightly painful to touch and sometimes feels pinched when i attempt to use the lower half of my body. Could you please advise how i should proceed. Thank you

Good day,

Back pain is common, and very seldom a symptom of something serious. In most cases, massage and movement solve the problem in a few days to weeks. Bed rest - often make the situation worse.

If massage and massage did not work, please consult your doctor/physiotherapist?

All the best,

I had severe sciatica for several months and NOTHING took the pain away. I went to a chiropractor who eventually gave me acupuncture - It was extremely sore for another 3 days then the pain went away. What a relief. He told me never to put heat on the paid rather an ice pack, I found this very helpful.
