    Ice, ice, ice. On for 15 off for 15 for one hour. It will help reduce the inflamation and pain.

    Thanks for the advise, I will give it a try.

    I have been using the thermacare heat pads which help a lot. And taking ibprofen too. I have a back stretcher/ relaxer thing, I'll try that too.

    30 years ago my son broke my 3rd vertabre when I gave birth to him. I have had arthritis ever since. :(

    My husband has degenerating disks in his back and also tried medication. Now he's medication free because he gets a deep tissue massage once a month followed up by a chiroprator visit. And the massage makes you feel great all over...all aches and pains and stress worked out!

    ICE IT! I am a veteran of such episodes and always applied heat. Finally in my 50's I learned from a young lawyer in my office whose wife was a physical trainer and whose dad in Italy was a professional soccer coach, that initially, heat just adds to inflamation. After a couple of days applying ice for abut 20 minutes at a time several times a day, then use the heat alternately with the ice. Gradually resume walking. Once you are recovered take up an exercise routine that strengthens you core. If you have a gym nearby employ the aid of a certified trainer who can teach you the moves. I can tell you from my own experience that's the long term secret to avoiding the hassle of such spasms.

    I agree...I spent years with exactly the same thing as Sewnsewer2, until I finally decided to give a chiro a go (I had always thought they were 'quacks' too). Best thing I ever did, and haven't been laid up with a bad back since. Yes, I still injure my back but I'm straight off to the chiro and I'm up and about straight away..no having to spend days in bed at all
