I have no inversion table and we're beyond stretching. My morning and nightly stretching saved me until now. Went a little overboard on air squats Sunday before running around the beach with my little buddy. Back was a little tight Monday morning and has gotten worse through the week. I am going to use the heating pad I should've used that's first night.

It's yoga buddy. It has helped me more then anything on earth.  I'm a power lifter, I tweak, pull and hurt my back all the time.  Yoga saved my life.

I know it sounds sort of effeminate but seriously DDP yoga is a game changer.

Sleep with a pillow under your ass if you are a back sleeper. Sleep with a pillow under stomach if you are a stomach sleeper.

This guy is a walmart worker who probably lifts everything with a team of 5 other low IQ obese people based on walmart safety guidelines.

In the past when the pain is mild enough I would try and walk to loosen things up. This ain't that. This is leave you bent over and off to the side type of nerve pain.

Been there done that. This too shall pass. I'm just looking for ways to get yo that point. I had to ask my lead at work to switch me to a different station today the pain got so bad. A funny joke that draws a light chuckle hurts bad type of pain.

Don't do heat unless you need to move in the next five minutes. It seems to help, but makes it worse. Ice is your friend. Inflammation is your enemy. 
 

Drink lots of water. Hydration is important. 
 

Any time you need to move, flex your abdominal muscles so that it feels like you are expanding your rib cage. It will help stabilize your spine and take some of the strain off your injured muscles. 
 

To reduce chance of reagrivating, when you are reaching, or leaning over (brushing teeth, pulling milk out of fridge, etc) turn to the side and make sure one leg is bent more than the other. Put one foot up on a small stool if practical. 
 

Take anti inflammatories. OTC if you can't get a rx. My dr gave me diclofenac sodium, an arthritis med. Cheap, and way more effective than aleve. 
 

Don't fuck any women over 140 lbs. Flipping those big bitches over can wreak havoc on your back. 
 

Ice, ice, ice. It seems like it will make you stiff. It won't. I used to use only heat. I switch to ice and my episodes of back pain went from lasting weeks to days.

Any resources or good routines you use? I've had lower back pain persistent for the last 3-4 months for the first time ever.

Read Dr McGills Back Mechanic. Start doing the McGill Big 3 now. Use progressive overload and work your way up slowly on these 3 exercises.
