I have a lower back pain due to working long hours at my desk. What should I do?

Low back pain: The best treatment are things you can do away from your desk. Your core muscles are weak from sitting posture. Walking, crunches, pool time.. You get the idea . I don't recommend belts or straps they just take away even more muscle tone. The only item i would recommend at your desk would be standing, stretching and trading chair for balance ball.

2 days ago while working out I had lower back pain that within hours became severe. Now it feels better but still there. Is a herniated disc likely?

2 days ago while working out I had lower back pain that within hours became severe. Now it feels better but still there.  Is a herniated disc likely?

Possible but ehhhh: If you're only symptom is back pain which is GETTING BETTER in 24 hrs. after having worked out? And the pain is localized to the back? No other symptoms radiating down the leg, sudden major leg weakness on one side or the other, numbness, tingling then, I'm afraid the badge of courage you can wear back to the gym will be nothing more than an overstrained back....you'll be fine. Doubt hernia. ...Read more
