I’ve been dealing with back pain since May. I’ve tried the chiropractor and physical therapy. I’ve also tried deep tissue massage. While it seems to help for the evening, I go back to sitting at my desk all day the next day and end up with the same pain.

In brief: Back pain

Back pain can have many characteristics that help to know the origin of pain.

Does the pain run to the gluteal region? Does the pain run to the leg? Increase when walking, stooping and charging? decrease at bedtime or with activity? Do you have loss of strength in one or both legs? Does one or both legs fall asleep?
I recommend you go with a Physiatrist (Rehabilitation Doctor)
