I had a muscular injury to my back, and it got to the point where I was in very bad pain - and the type of injury that I have will never go away. I urge you to go to doctor to have it looked at. One, I got a diagnosis, and two, I got physical therapy which has showed me what to do to keep the pain away.
I hurt my back while shoveling mulch in the yard about a week and a half ago (of course, just when I started seeing results and my determination level skyrocketed...). I'm icing the area 4-5 times/day and taking Aleve, which does give some relief. I'm sure its muscular and not something more severe. Never had a back injury before, so I'm kind of at a loss as to what exercising I can do without exacerbating the issue. Suggestions?
