Even though exercise may sound like it will hurt more than help I found that even though it hurt trying to increase my walking distance from 5 minutes a day to now 1 hour plus hills it is the single most effective thing that has helped my myofascial low back pain. It does hurt while you are doing it but overall you can do more and will feel better. My nerves were oversensitized and small movements would hurt, once I got to doing hills these small and frquent injuries lessend and now I have gone about 3 months or more withoout one. I still hurt but can progress some. hope this helps. Marieh9View Thread
