Ouch!  I’d recommend talking to a physical therapist to see what the problem is and how you should treat it.  Also, RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevate — not sure how you’ll do that last one!) is a popular (and useful) way of treating sports injuries! 

Feel better soon!

Do you have access to a whirlpool or a hot tub? It should help ease the pain too. Good luck!

This happens to me a few times a year.  Sometimes, its just beding the wrong way.  If you have any muscle relaxers that can help, as well the ThermaCare heating pads are my favorite.  You’ll be able to walk in a couple days, but still have the pain.  It usually takes me 4-5 days to feel completely 100%.  I hope you fell better.

Might you be able to ease back into it (after some time off to heal, of course) by doing a water aerobics class or swimming? Its low impact, so it might not agrivate your back like another excercise will…

SO sorry to hear that you’re laid up! Nuts!

Ugh I know how you feel! I actually threw my back out the first day Fiance and I got to Hawaii for vacation last year. I felt better with one day left. It lasted aboue 6 full days for me.

Just take it easy, and I second looking into the ThermaCare pads!
