Ongoing back problems

Just thought id see if i could get any tips or advice regarding a problem of mine which seems fairly uncommon. About a year ago i started two new jobs (lifting) and developed all over back ache/pain, until the point i had to quit two jobs. I had a similar problem about 3 years ago which just disappeared however. I have not been able to play sport in months, and when i did it was very sore and even worse the following days. It has got to the point where i am having to click my back several times a day in several different positions for relief. The problem is in my lower, middle and upper back. I struggle to stand or even sit for ten minutes. Lying down is the only real relief. In the past year i have visited doctors, hospitals, physios (2 months), acupuncturists (6 sessions), and chiropractors (back specialist, around 3 months)... And not much progress. Blood samples were normal and MRI scans were fine. I am only 18 and start UNI very soon. I am extremely upset i will not be able to play sports, but that is not the main concern. I guess i am just out of options, and i feel like i am the only person with this exact problem, especially at my age. My chiropractor has now recommended i try pilates... Thanks for reading, i hope i can get some feedback.


  • core strengthening and endurance excercises, yoga and pilates might also be good suggestions. It could simply be a case of fear of recurring/resuming back pain coupled with the restricted activity levels and resting has given your get up and go a case of got up and went. Increasing your activity levels and strengthening your core muscles will help to prevent/protect against further injury and also get your endorphins going again
