Lower Back Pain
I have a terrible lower back pain right in the spine. Could this be a disc dislocation? Do I need to go to the Doctor? Which exercises must I avoid at the Gym?

Ntombi, I suppose it could be a dislocation, but it’s more likely to be due to back muscle spasm. The best would be to take some anti-inflammatories over the weekend and see what happens. If it doesn’t clear up by Monday, seeing your doctor wouldn’t be a bad idea. Good luck.
