hey guys,

I started getting lower back pain when I get out of the car. I don’t drive long distances. My lower back is not sore when I’m walking or doing any other activates.
The pain starts from my lower back and goes down to my gluteus. It does not last long (probably 30-40 seconds) as I walk the pain goes away. But it’s a very nasty pain.
I joined gym 3 weeks ago and I trained with personal trainer for 2 sessions and he set up a program for me which I follow. I go to gym 3 times a week.
I used to attend gym up until November 2010 but then I stopped and I got back to gym in July 2011.
Shall I stop going to gym for a week and see if the pain goes away?

Blaze86,

This may sound silly, but are you sitting on your wallet when you are driving? It is a well known problem in persons who carry their wallet in the back hip pocket. The mass puts pressure on the sciatic nerve.

It you do carry a wallet in you back pocket, you might try taking it out before you drive.

Good luck.

The best way to get rid of lower back pains is, try to sit straight so that your back remains straight and pain doesn't occur. If you are computer professional and you have to sit hours in front of computer, then you should take a short walk in every 20-30 minutes.

Blaze86,

It could be that the seats in your car, put just enough sagittal curve and pressure on the lower spine to cause some muscle spasm or tightness. Then, when you get out of the car, you get the muscles worked out and the pain goes away.

Possibly, you need to put in those car seats that are firmer than the factory installed ones. Not put in whole new ones, but the type that go on top of the ones already there. These may give you better support. Since this only seems to bother you when you drive.

Good luck.
