I have a lower-back pain with trouble keeping a straight posture while standing. Help?

Powderpuff asked:

I’ve gone to the chiropractor a few months ago for a similar problem. He did a series of adjustments along with me doing stretches and exercises. I was only running at this time.

I now incorporated lots of strength straining with free-weights and lots of ab exercises so that this problem would not occur.

In my ballet class I had some soreness in my hips and thighs and took a pilates class the next day (along with running). I then had a tennis lesson the next day and by Saturday (today) my lower back is killing me as much as it did a few months ago. I don’t understand what’s wrong since i’ve been doing all the exercises with building up the muscles (3 times a week plus ballet makes us do abs before class). I am also having some numbness in both legs.

I am using Tiger balm patches now. What can I do until I can see the chiropractor? I am doing some stretches but is there better positions to rest in which will allow my back to relax and heal?

    try this it mite help as it did for me,,,lay on floor and put your body in a Z position ..put a chair under legs to slightly raise back off the floor (use books or towels folded to get the right height ) and try and get comfy and lay there for an hr or so (read a book or watch tv) good luck hope it helps

    OK first of all don’t waste your time going to see a chiropractor.see a real doctor and tell him you have numbness in your feet,this freaks them out and your more likely to get an MRI.once they look at the MRI then they will be able to see if you have a disc issue or a vertebrae issue.in the mean time you should get a copy of this book.http://www.amazon.com/Treat-Your-Back-Robin-McKenzie/dp/0958269238/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-8163448-7733438?ie=UTF8s=booksqid=1188700573sr=1-1
    there are some good exercises on there.
