I see a woman that wears a type of back brace. Not like some Forest Gump stuff but she says it really helps keep her posture so that her lower back doesn't bother her.
Looks something like this ...
I mean something like this. When I do weight squats or deadlifts on leg day, my lower back tends to be sorer afterward. Thanks for suggesting a big belly of air! Seems like that will help alot.
This is the one ipurchased. It is hidden well under your clothes and prevents you from twisting or bending with your back
Okay so right now I'm going through my worst flare up yet. The pain has been so intense this weekend that I couldn't move, stand up, or walk by myself. My husband helped me get to the restroom, shower, put on my clothes, etc. I also used a chair as a walker to get around and exercise around the house, but I took this very very slow because it was so painful to put pressure on my left side. Saturday was my worst day and today I'm finally walking so I feel these steps worked well for me. Here's exactly what I did in this order.
More than anything, I tried my best to keep moving like everyone else in the comments already mentioned. Yes, at first I could barely stand or bend at any angle without excruciating pain. But I took baby steps and made sure to make progress. Sometimes I handled a bit of pain in order to keep taking the next step toward recovery. I kept telling myself to breathe every time I got shot of sharp pain. Deep breathing, thinking "I can do this", and resting when I was tired but not in excess definitely helped. Today I'm walking on my own with a little hunch but almost no pain. So remember, right now it feels eternal but it's not!! Keep taking pain killers exactly when the label directs you to (mine was every 12 hours) and also try to keep yourself distracted! It will pass :)
