Q.

What should I do to help my lower back pain?

Hi, After I do walking and jogging alternately I get lower back ache. I am doing my best to do this with awareness and keeping my tummy in. I put heat on it once I get in bed with a heating pad. That helps. I swim and relax in the Jacuzzi. That helps. But it is chronic. Any further tips, most welcome.

Hi,

If you experience lower back pain, in particular following walking and jogging, then it is likely related to muscle tension that develops following physical activity. Keeping your tummy in is excellent so keep that up but also consider getting a fitness professional to show you some back stretches you can do after you’re walking/jogging to reduce the degree of resultant muscle tightness. The reason you get relief from your heat pads is because the heat temporarily releases muscle tightness and a more powerful tool similar to this is sports massage which is worth considering in conjunction with the methods you already use for relief.

Hope this helps,

Kelly
