My Lower Back Hurts When I Run
Shoes: It could be that your shoes are not providing enough padding and shock absorption. If your shoes are old, try replacing them with a newer pair of running shoes.Try running on a dirt path or in the grass instead of hard pavement if possible and see if this helps with your pain. Also, may be wise to do some stretches before running and see if this helps. Lastly, drink lots of water. ...Read more
My lower back hurts only when I run long distances. I am only 23 and I was wondering what I should do?
Lumbago: Running on hard surfaces is like jack knifing on the spine. Specially if you also do weight lifting, will destroy lower back. That is why you never see on the olympic tem a weight lifter after age 24. If you do not do weight lifting, check your uric acid to be bellow 6.0. I am seeing a lot of young people with elevated uric acid, which i did not see before. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What Risk?: Depends on what risk you are speaking of... Generally there is no major risk in the long term, in the short term you could have steroid side effects, but assuming you have been ok with the past 2, you maybe ok with the 3rd one. I would be hesitant to consider anymore given the 3 in a row. As long as you have relief, i wait at least 2 months for future treatments and maybe consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Run,swim,cycling,what is the best exercise for lower back pain and sciatica?and what is the best time to start,while in pain or after?
I have had lower back pain for 3 months. I came off my motorbike at slow speed in january. I am also a keen runner. Can still run.?
Probably: First, back pain after an accident that persists for 3 months should be evaluated by a doctor. If you get the green light after that evaluation, it is okay to return to running. Start slowly. If you experience no increase in pain, add volume and intensity in a common sense way. Massage, manual release techniques, body work, etc may help work out persistent complaints. Improve your core. ...Read more
