What Does Lower Back Pain Indicate Despite Mobility Increasing During Movement?
muscle spasm or some types of joint inflammation, improves with movement
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Normally with a muscular spasm or injury, as a person moves about and therefore intentionally or non intentionally moves the muscle, there is a decrease in pain.
This also occurs with osteoarthritis, there is increased pain or stiffness in the morning that improves at least slightly as the day progresses.
Based on the description of moving a heavy object muscle spasm is the most likely cause but it is also possible to have aggravated underlying joint disease such as osteoarthritis.
Arthritis is inflammation and damage to a joint.
Persons may not be aware of the osteoarthritis until it is affected by another event.
You should continue the stretching , yoga and heat pad. Consider seeing your doctor to have an x ray done to assess for any changes to the bones of the back.
The heat pad for 15 to 20 mins, 2 to 3 times a day
An anti inflammatory agent such as ibuprofen or naproxen for a short period of time, combined with a muscle relaxant, would also help.
Eg of a muscle relaxant flexeril, valium, XXXXXXX etc
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
