lower back pain and sore coccyx
hi there, about a month ago i picked up something heavy.from there on my lower back was sore. it seemed to get a bit better, but now, it hurts alot. i cant even bend down or touch my toes which i could do as i am a spin instructor. my coccyx is now sore too when i spin, and when i sit at the office. it seems to be getting worse. i spin 4-5 times a week, i sit for long periods at my desk and rarely get up for breaks.. i dont know if this makes things worse? i havent fallen on my bum or anything..what do you think could be the problem as i am scared to go to a physio and for them to not know either or suggest things that wont actually help..

please help

Van - go to either a physio or chiro - the longer you take the longer it will take to sort out.
