I'm not clear on how this works - and I haven't seen a doctor specifically about it.. but for the last 5-6 days my lower back (lumbar region) has had anything from a dull ache, to being relatively pain free (though still there somewhat). It's come and gone for the last month now, but it's gotten what I'd call 'worse' recently.
Not really looking for medical advice (though any experiences would be appreciated I guess). What I'm wondering is how I get to a physical theropist? When I ran it by a doctor (during a visit for my daughter a week ago) he didn't seem to think it was a big deal.. though I've had abdominal muscle cramps as well -- which I'm starting to think triggered by back hurting. Anyways.. I'm sure a tonne of you have gone through physical theropy, do I have to have a referral? And if not, anyone recommended in the Richmond and/or South Surrey/White Rock area?
