Hi everyone!

Recently I did a strange move and hurt my back....Since then i took pills to stop the inflamation and all but it didn't work much...My doctor told me to do some exercise to stretch and muslce my back, but I don't know what to do at all...So Anybody had the same problems and has exercises for me?

Thanks a lot!

Go to a physical therapist. I do exercises for my back but everyone has different problems. They are generally very simple and gentle exercises. Your doctor should give you a referal to PT.

Cd your too young to have back problems...Go to a specialist and work on that immediately. Your back is not an area to play around with. I know lots of guys that have severe back problems and its not fun. :(

I had back problems earlier this year - I went to a chiropractor... (I always get 'chiropractor' and 'chiropodist' mixed up... :o ;) ) I had a few sessions with him and my back problems went away... :) The poster Lynx sent me some back exercises - that was very kind and helpful of him!! I have the document on this computer...

Good luck... :)

I have back problems too, slipped disk. :sad:
It really hurts, the best thing you can do is actually to strenghten your ab muscles. As strange as that sounds it actually takes a lot of pressure off your back muscle and therefore reduces the pain. But it's best to check with a doctor or physical therapist to see which exercises you can do and won't cause you anymore discomfort.

Yes - a chiropractor is the person to see.

My daughter had problems with her back when she was sixteen. She saw our family doctor first but he (like a lot of doctors) assumed that because she was young, it was 'just a sprain' that would clear up after a while. It didn't, so a month later he recomended she see a physiotherapist who gave her some excersises to do. That didn't help either.
Eventually she went to a chiropractor who finally spotted the real problem - scoliosis, a lateral 'S' shaped spinal developement caused by a combination of fast spinal growth (she is taller than average), sitting on poorly designed school furniture and years of carrying heavy school books around on one shoulder.

Following six months of therapy, her spine straightened up (it was amazing, you could actually see the difference) and she now visits her Chiropractor three times a year for a session. Had she relied on conventional medicine, the problem may not have been identified until it was too late.
