Cause of back pain?: Have you had the back pain evaluated by a physician to find out the cause? I think that is important to do before seeking out advice on stretching exercises by a network such as this where we don't really have the ability to examine you first. Stretches could help your condition or depending they could worsen things. Your doctor should be able to direct you to a PT specialist as well.
