For a week, my son’s had pain in his lower back. The way he described it at first, I just assumed it was sciatica. So he’s been using ice and heat to help it but he hasn’t felt like stretching it yet.
Today we consulted a doctor about it, and she diagnosed it as a muscle sprain. To help it heal faster, she suggested physical therapy sessions. We’ll probably start those early next week, and I think it’s going to make a big difference.
He really wants to get back on the tennis court now that school’s out for summer. Plus he wants to keep working toward his driver’s license which is hard to do with back pain.
