So I'm not sure how this happened except maybe it was after doing Nancy Rx that i notices some days later that when I would round my back on purpose i feel a dull pain for a moment. Then it goes away and if I try to do that again it wont happen.

It's been like this for a couple of weeks now. Anybody wanna guess what's going on?

Spine? Muscles? SI joint?

More information is better, oh and to steal Dave V.S's line...lower back pain is nothing to fuck with. If it's been weeks now it might be time to see a sports doc.

when i touch one of my vertebrae it hurts like it's sore or something.

pain in very mild and momentary.

i can't really go to a doctor i have no insurance and make very little money.

Can you see a PT without a doc referral?

May be applicable to see a chiro as well...

Just now i was sitting cross legged on a chair at my desk at home and i rolled the chair forward by leaning forward with a rounded back if that description make sense and i got a momentary dull pain that seems to come from the area of one of my vertebras..

i also think inactivity tends to make it more likely i will feel this momentary pain..
this sucks.......


one of my friends is a chiropracter..

You need to be more specific. "Vertebrae" could be any of 33 in the spine. There's only so much this board can help with, and you'll likely need in-office care, but for what it's worth, we can get you going in the right direction.

Post a picture from the internet or something. Or describe it off of this photohttp://www.backpain-guide.com/Chapter_Fig_folders/Ch05_Anatomy_Folder/Ch5_Images/05-4_Overall_Spine.jpg

Steve,

The SI manipulation video that you linked is grade A++. Literally, it was one of those immediate relief type thing. (Yes, yes, I should have gone to a DC about, oh, 2.317 years ago). Do you have any broader references on "self joint manipulation/adjustment" -- books and/or DVD series? Particularly hip and shoulder (big surprise!).

Best,
Mark

No, I don't. But glad it helped.

I haven't read up on that sort of stuff yet although I should. I also am poor so I don't have many books. :(

However, I did find out one that works well for myself when I can't do the one in the video. Basically, set yourself up so that you're supported on your hands (on pbars or rings or a ledge) then quickly externally rotate the hips and squeeze the glutes and hamstrings as hard as possible.

This will literally RIP the SI joint back into place if it's slipped or slightly displaced. Has caused me a few cramping hammies, but the effect of eliminating the slip is something I can feel right away.

Steve,
Any video or diagrams on that SI manipulation? Having a hard time picturing it.

Since the thread I had a while back on activation, I've started having some SI discomfort on the left side, and am looking for some self treatment options until I can get in with another good chiropractor.

Not that I know of (although as I said I haven't done a search or anything for stuff like that on youtube).

Just support yourself (or hang from a bar I haven't tried that though) and then basically air glute bridge and squeeze your hammies (heels to butt) as hard as possible.

I was having constant soreness in the lower back for months when i was trying to touch my toes or if i was curving my back. Its was not hurting bad when i was doing deadlift or olympic lift but i was feeling very week when i was in the bottom squat position. I went see the physio after like 3 months and here was the diagnostics.

After a couple of test, the physio figured out that my spine was not bending at the good place. There is a muscle around the spine called multifidius. My multifidius was kind of sleeping and i was never using it. So, all my spine on the lombard curve ( bottom) was stuck like a rock.

I went for 2 times a weeks for 3 weeks getting small electric shock on my multifidius to tell my brain how to use it. There is a couple of exercices after that to make the lower spine move correctly and the pain cause away. I dont know if my post is relevant to you but i was pretty scared about my back and at the end it wasn't that bad.

ccrow on the P&B had a diagnostic that I thought was amusing, only about halfway tongue-in-cheek.

- If you hang from a bar and it feels better, then gets even worse when you come down again, it's a bulging disk
- If you get drunk and it feels better, it's a muscle spasm
