What Does Pain In The Lower Back Indicate?

17 hours after a rigorous 3 hours of downhill skiing, and otherwise very fit from cycling and swimming, a band of pain suddenly formed across my lower back and has persisted, diminishing some, for 9 hours. Motion isn t restricted, but most movement sparks the pain. No pain at rest. Is this likely a muscle spasm? No pain during or just Tafter skiing.

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hello,

The back pain is likely due to muscle strain. Take adequate rest, do not over-strain. Apply ice on the area of pain and also take Advil medicine every 6 hours to help reduce pain and inflammation.

If the pain persists after 3 to 4 days, an x-ray spine is recommended to rule out vertebral issues.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Lekshmi Rita Venugopal
