I threw my back out a little over a year ago while doing leg press. Ever since then, about every three months or so, I end up throwing my back out again. Any of you out there that have ever had this problem? It's so excruciatingly painful at times. I KNOW what I need to do in order to squash it quickly (anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants), but I'm wondering if any of you have other remedies?
I know I need to go back to my hardcore regimen of sit-ups and crunches, but I can't exactly do that with a sore back.
