I had terrible lower back pain a couple years ago. Turns out the eliptical I was using was putting a ton of pressure on my lower back. Switched to jogging and that cleared it up.

I would take inventory of your physical activity. Google the things you do. May surprise you what you find.
Thats it Ryan

a torn disc L5-S1, a second torn disc L4-L5, and a bulging disc L3-L4. I started taking the supplement Curcumin which is a strong natural anti-inflammatory. It's been a lifechanger for me. So much so that I've since stopped all opioids and I can exercise again.

I also started using an exercise ball as my chair at work to help strengthen those muscles

Below is what I use in case you are interested.

a lot of it is mental but you also need to change your life a bit. Stay as active as possible (as pain allows), eat healthier and drink water. Do some basic core exercises. Took me a year to get over the mental stuff but once I started working out it was a life changer.

Works wonders. Try using it in the morning.
20 years ago I crushed a disk and

slipped a vert as well.

never had any work done.

years later, after the 'career' feel apart and I needed to do labor work, I 'fixed' it simply by strengthening my other muscles to the extent that I could function fine. via work.

In addition, the nerves must have accommodated the situation. To this day I am 'upper body leftwards'.

non opioid pain killers to start, stay fit is the key.

When I get out of shape, like now, it rears its ugly head again.

lay on the floor, (no carpet) with your butt in the wall/floor junction, and legs up the wall.

to gently stretch the spine while not having any weight on it.

breath deep.

BUT, if its serious, make sure you have someone to help you up again when done. no joke.

that's short term. Long term you have to build up a different set of muscles, change your body, to compensate.
