I have a golf tournament this weekend and My back is as bad as it has ever been. My lower back has been hurting since the end of basketball season last year and until now I could tolerate it. Now I can't even walk withought wincing in pain. I can't bend down to pick something up. can't even swing a golf club. I actually had to stay home form school today because of the pain I was in. I can't get a doctor to look at it because my insurance is being switched and my parents don't want to pay a ton of money. I will hvae to wait another month or so until then. Please help!!!

The pain is on my lower right portion of my back(at times I have felt it on my left side too. It doesn't feel like a muscular problem it feels more bone related. I was thinking inflammation, but my parents don't believe me.
The pain has consisted for many months. It hurts whenever I move my legs, especially my right leg.

I'd like to know whats wrong with me, and it would also be nice too know how to fix it, or at least control the pain.

  • The single thing that always solves my lower backs problem (slipped disk) is to hang from an overhead bar, like a high-bar at a playground and allow my body to go limp. Wiggling my ankles in a slightly circular motion allows the disk to slide back into place.I always have to be careful NOT to walk on uneven ground or place too much weight on a single foot for an hour or so afterward otherwise the disk slips back out of place.I hope this gives you as much relief & comfort as I gain from it!
