Hi. I will be 37 years old soon. I have had these strains for over 5 years now but now have had 4-6 episodes in the last 6 months. All take about a week to get better with pain relievers and muscle relaxers. Most have happened during basketball. I drove to the basket past my defender and as i shifted to one foot felt a lower back pull. Defender had a hand on my back not alot of force thou. Another time i was going up for a layup and defender had hand on top of ball coming down and i felt my low back pull. I have concluded that basketball even with light contact is too much for my back. I haven't had an x ray in about 5 year. That x ray from the chiro showed a bulging disc. Latest episode I drove to the basket and same deal. Felt a little pull so I stopped and went home. That was saturday and pain got progessively worse til today. Normally it gets better. No numbness no tingling. Just torso tilt and strain.
