I think that within the last week at work I have pulled my back. It started out to be not that bad, but its getting to the point where it just hurts. It is more of a pinching pain then a pulled muscle pain. Right around the small of my back. What are some suggestions to help relieve the pain in a non-medicine, non-surgical, way. Stretches, exercises....... I pulled a back muscle a few months ago and it seemed that kayaking helped it alot. Im talking to my boss tomorrow so Ill at least get the free doctors appointment. Any words of advice?? Thanks!!
