I work in an office at a computer forty hours a week. I don't know for sure why, but for a while now my lower back has been screaming at me. And I think it's getting worse as time goes by. I had it on good terms that about 90% of lower back pain is caused by some kind of undue stress on the leg or ass muscles, and I learned a few stretches to loosen those parts up a little bit, things I could do in a few minutes someplace out of the way. Well, it does help. Getting out and walking around (especially briskly) helps as well. But the pain returns after a little while, and maybe I can't get up and walk around for ten minutes every hour. So what I'd like to know is if there's something I'm maybe missing, some kind of cure-all lower back pain stretch that I haven't learned. I was in prime shape a year ago, and I stopped running, stopped working out, almost entirely. I wonder sometimes if I am experiencing pain related to some kind of physical deterioration (from non-use, etc)... is this even plausible? I may wind up having to see a chiropractor, but if there are some suggestions you all might have, I'd love to hear them. And if this thread is entirely misplaced in this subforum, my apologies.
