I have two partially ruptured lumbar disks. When they occassionally shift, they put pressure on the sciatic nerves. Basically paralyzes me from the waist down and results in tremendous pain. I've lived with it for years. About every other year or so I end up in the hospital for a couple of days. Pain so bad that if you offered to shoot me, I'd provide the ammo.

Surgery is not an option at this time. Physical therapy and exercise help me avoid the situation, as the stronger I can keep my abdominal and back muscles, the better the support and alignment of my spine. But the damn thing still shifts every now and then, sometimes for no apparent reason at all. Other times because I've done something stupid, like lifting something heavy improperly.

Welcome to the world of lower back pain. It sounds as though you've tweaked the muscles of your lower back. Ice for the first 24 hrs, followed by moist heat. Lay flat on your back, sitting puts too much pressure on your spine. Seek the aid of a chiropractor or physician to make sure it is only muscular. Whenever I tweak mine I head straight to the chiro. I'm usually up and moving within 3-5 days. Oh and oddly enough I've found walking is actually the best thing. Go figure. Get to the doctor. Hope you feel better.

Are you on the list?

I had the same kind of pain when I was 14. I fractured 2 vertebra in my lower back. I could barely sit down, or really do anything. I went to the doctor and that's what the xrays showed. There was nothing that could be done about it. I still get back pain, but it's not to bad, I'm 23 now.

Get it looked at right away. I did the same thing snowboarding years ago and it still bothers me sometimes in the morning or when I lift something the wrong way...you don't want to deal with that kind of pain the rest of your life... and it will tend to get worse as time goes on...

Take things that promote healing, like Vitamin E and such...then get to the doctor ASAP...these kinds of injuries can be pretty serious...

Take some ibuprofin and when laying flat, you should keep your leggs elevated. Put a pillow under your knees when lying down or lay on the floor with your leggs ( from the knee down) on the sofa or a chair. This will decrease the pressure on the lower back
Active recovery!!! -- Resist the urge to lay around and do nothing. as stated above, walking is really good for helping to get things to loosen up.
You should get it looked at by the doctor to find out if it is a structural or muscular problem. If it is muscular it will feel better in 4 -7 days no matter what you do.
If it is structural (ruptured or bulging disk) you will need some heavy duty anti-inflammatories. If you feel the pain starting to move down your leg you should get to the doctor post-haste as permanent nerve damage can occur.
After icing for the first 24 hours you can alternate ice & heat to get more blood to the area. The more blood inflx & outflow to the area will serve to get rid of the toxins and bring more healing "healthy" blood to the area.
Long term - you should do regular abdominal exercises as a lot of back problems are caused by an imbalance of strength between the abdominal and back muscles as the abdominal muscles are usually weaker than the back muscles.

I got tossed off my dirt bike today.

Fortunately my cell phone broke my fall Road rash, sore ribs and stiff joints. Hurts to breate. Not the first time i've been banged up and sore, probably not the first for you either, chances are very good you will be fine in a few days.

I had a lot of back trouble a while back. Then I started going to driving range a couple days a week. Initially it agravated my back but after a few weeks it got better and has stayed that way for the past few years trouble free.

Be carefull what and how much you do to that back.

Dr. Nick Jones, Have you consulted with Dr. Mom, and Dr. Dad? I'm sure there findings would be to err on the side of caution. Take it from someone who knows, the back is not something you want to play with. Especially at your age.

Are you on the list?
