I find bumming around and staying seated all day (like I did on Saturday) is a huge trigger for my back. I have been doing some strength training using a physical therapy oriented machine (med-x) and it is making a world of difference so far in strengthening my back- and I'm only a month in. Definitely excited about the prospect of eliminating my pain!

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

core strength actually never takes away my back pain. I hate my back. I cleaned my new apartment for 6 hours last night because we're moving in Wednesday, and I had to call in to work today because last night my right leg wouldn't cooperate due to low back and hip pain, and it is still hurting this morning and I can't walk around for 5 hours straight with this pain. It really sucks that I have to deal with this and all I want to do is be more active and LIVE.well.

That's okay, GORDOMOOSE, I needed this thread to vent in without creating my own thread and feeling even more lame than I do now.

Core strength is the best way to prevent back pain or injury.

You forgot just plain weakness -- I've always gotten a lot of pain and twinges in my lower back when just starting to walk again after a prolonged period being sedentary. I guess you could file it under overuse, but it's not the ordinary kind of overuse.
