    sore lumbar region (non bike related pain)

    Okay, so this is not bike related, I have had acute lumbar pains for a while (starting around 17yr or so, but it was rare, but as I age becoming more comman), and never when riding or after riding, it happens if I sit improperly in a chair mostly (sluching) or do not pick up a box correctly (not using my knees), the pain only last for a second, but if I aggravate it once, it seem more prone to further aggravation for about 48hr. but I can ride during this time with no pain. The pain is based just to the sides of my spine on both sides, and it feels deep in the muscle. I do not take any medication for it ever, I believe that pain is a good way to judge your bodies limits.
    And if it matters I am 26, M, 5'6", 150lbs, played competive soccer for six years (12-18yr.) and before that was soccer and baseball. Started MtBiking at 18 and road at 23yr. and have not MtBiked in over two years. I can reach amost 3" past my toes with straight unlocked knees onced stretched.
    So I guess my hopes are that maybe someone on here is a PT or doctor that can give me some direction on if there is any kind of work out that I can do to help strengthen my lumbar region, or if there is something else that I can do, I honestly do not have to money to beable to go to a specialist (I know that would be the best thing)
    Thanks for the help

    Check out Pilates for back pain. There are numerous books. That is what you would do with a physical therapist anyway, since it sounds like your back pain is myofibril (muscular).

    Go to a doctor if you like, but since it doesn't sound too serious, and the pain is located in the spinal erector muscles... I'd just get a book and start doing Pilates for 5 minutes a day.
