Chronic Back Pain: Good day;
You want to rule out serious medical aliments so consider a visit with your primary MD soon. However, in the mean time contact a medically oriented physical therapist. Permit him to offer stretches to increase blood flow to the area. I've personally found these daily exercises to diminish and alleviate these symptoms.
