I'm looking for suggestions on how to alleviate my low back pain and muscle spasms. I have been seeing a chiropractor for about 2 months now and though the pain and spasms are not as excruciating I seem to have hit a plateau. According to my chiropractor my problem is with my psoas muscle, also called the hip flexor muscle.
On the bike and sitting my pain/spasm is either low or diminished. When standing at work it can be unbearable at times. I do the stretch she recommended everytime I get off the bike. (the stretch I do is keeping one foot flat on the floor and the other foot on top of a stool so that my knee is bent, then leaning into the hip one the side where the foot is plat on the floor, then switching) I have also been doing abdominal workouts.
Anybody have any ideas?
