I hurt my lower back working, How can i fix the pain?

Question by Darren: I hurt my lower back working, How can i fix the pain?
First off, I have a doctors appointment tomorrow to refeer me to a Physical Therapist.. Just wondering mostly on pain management or if anyone else is having the same issue.

I have had bad posture all my life and lately been having emotional stress. I work graveyards unloading trucks and moving freight manually.. Lately I have been having lower back pain.. So i tried a yoga move where i sit at a 90 degree angle on the base of a wall.. my legs propped up and my back flat on the ground.. It hurt like hell.. but i continued to do it till the pain subside.. the pain in my lower spine were my pelvis is (From where i did that yoga move) has been hurting for over a month now.. Since then, my posture has worsed.. Every time i get up i hear a minor pop.. and can feel it in my lower spine. And it just over all hurts when i work with a brace on.
Could I have just really badly over did it from that excersise and it will hurt for a few months? What should i take to cure the pain till i see my doctor tomorrow? Ibuproffen or vicodin?

  1. Hi there: try a hot bath and add some Epsom’s salts. This will relax your muscles and help you with the soreness. You have a fine day
