Has lower back pain. Has increased after massaging. Remedy?

A friend of mine has been experiencing series lower back pain . Focusing mostly in tail bone area. I was giving her a massage the other night to try to ease up her pain this worked for about a hour. Sense then her pain has worsened and now she says it feels like shes is being squeezed. Almost as if her muscles are becoming tight it is hard now for her to do something as simple as get out of bed. Any thoughts as to what we might be able to do to help this ease up any?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the lower back that your friend is having is likely to be due to a muscle spasm. Massaging usually relieves the pain but right now it is best to do a hot fomentation in the area and have a muscle relaxant prescribed from her orthopedician.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
