I have lower back pain on a daily basis, mostly when sitting in certain positions or standing too long. Advice?

I have lower back pain on a daily basis, mostly when sitting in certain positions or standing too long. Advice?

Aquatic exercise: Swim, water aerobics or walking in chest deep water. We are about 80% lighter standing in chest deep water due to buoyancy. This will make exercising easier. Start with an amount that is relatively easy and comfortable, then repeat 4 or more days per week and add a few minutes to the program once a week, initially only add 2-3 mins per week, so you don't over do it. Don't give up and keep moving. ...Read more

I had a nuclear medicine scan and was told I had an increased ischium vertabrae. Can this cause severe lower back pain?

Maybe: Sounds like you had a nuclear medicine bone scan. An abnormal finding on this study could certainly help identify the cause of low back pain. The term "ischium vertebrae" is not commonly used, I have not run across it before. Would get clarification from the person who interpreted your scan so you can more clearly know what is going on. The ischium is a pelvic bone separate from the vertebra. ...Read more
