In brief: Grin & bear it
A sore lower back is a fact of life for many people, including doctors.
We try to maintain a healthy weight, remain fit, work on core strength, use ice/heat/tylenol/advil when necessary, and home exercises. In certain instances pt may be indicated. Sometimes, injections are tried. Surgery is indicated in certain instances when all else has failed.
