Father time kicking me down

    For some reason, my lower back has tightened up so badly that I can barely walk. I blame it on the jacked up chairs that I'm forced to sit it at work. Tried sleeping on the floor last night, which usually works, but it didn't this time. Any quick remedies out there short of going to a doctor?

    He's still a doctor. Besides, he may be getting ready to use the machine on himself any day now.

    Stretch? Do you know cat/cow?.... get on your hands and knees with your back straight... arch it up as high as you can, slowly, while lowering your head (cat).. hold for five....then relax and let it sag, while lifting your hed.. Repeat five times.....also, pelvic tilts are a wonderful thing... lie on your back, knees bent.. contract your abs until the small of your back is hitting the floor.. do it 10 times or so.. over time it will strengthen your abs.

    Drip, try yoga. More stretching would probably help with your lower back pain. Most of my back pain can be alleviated with ten minutes of stretching it out a day. Plus, after stretching, you feel better all over.

    Try these.

    You work at a newspaper? Be grateful you still have a chair to sit in.

    Yeah ... that's what I meant. I'll try to be more direct for you next time.

    Around here, it's difficult enough to get the supplies you need to do your job, let alone a chair to sit in. LOL.
