I started getting pretty decent low back pain while swimming last summer. Wetsuit tends to make it onset faster and hurts more. I start out ok but about 15-20 min it starts in. The pain is low center of my back at waistline/just below. Like a knife in the back. Swam for 3 years with no issues and can't say any specific event started it.
When I get out it is painful to straighten up. I walk hunched over. I have to squat and basically stretch out the lower part. Biking is fine and actually feels better once I get going about 2-3 mi on the bike. Running no issue also.
I got a suggestion from my brother to visit a massage therapy center in the city for pain relief.
Can physiotherapy help? Is there a magic cure? Anyone?
