Likely lumbar spondy: Gentle range of motion, core strengthening, stretching and walking or any low-impact cardiovascular exercise. Pain can be relieved with over-the-counter medications like advil or aleve (naproxen). Ice for about 45 minutes will address inflammation and swelling, never apply ice to the skin, always over a towel or clothing. Follow this by heat for about 20 to 25 minutes to help soothe and relax tight muscle.

Physical Evaluation: There are a number of things that could be the cause. It could be the result of the beginning stages of arthritis or possible muscle spasms. It could also be from a bulging or herniated disc causing the pain. It sounds like you need a good physical evaluation to get to the cause of the pain. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. Deuk spine institute.
