Dr. Bambi Gladfelter is helping patients with back pain at Primary Health Group - Short Pump.
It is usually muscle strain related to activity. Symptoms include severe back pain with a sudden onset. Pain can be constant with worsening symptoms depending on positioning.
Do not lift more than five pounds and do not make any sudden, rapid movements of your back. Stretching 2-4 times daily will help.
