Hello all
Does anyone of you suffer from lower back pain due to driving.
If yes can someone suggest any exercise or medication or diet.

I do suffer with lower back issues, I'm an ex footie player with old muscle injuries rearing their ugly head now and then.

What I've learnt is finding your weaknesses and listening to your body.

What's your age and body dynamics any previous sports played or injuries?.

I am in late 30s mate. Been driving for living for nearly 5 years. This nasty pain has started just recently, not a sports person.
I have heard many scary stories of other drivers who destroyed their back and I am bit worried now. May be some exercise will help.

Not being a sportsman in the past is a good thing in this instance.

I will private message you, many things you shouldn't be doing please bear with me as finding some links will take a bit of time.

You've got to find your ideal sitting position. Some drivers sit way back, their seat is not straight and they seat vey low.
Some place the phone far away, imagine having to lean towards that phone 100's of times during a 10 hr shift.

I drive a manual car, used to have bad back pain plus left leg and left groin pain, since adjusting my seat, most of the pain has gone. If someone touches my seat, it takes a long time to adjust to the exact position.

Lay on the floor and roll on the back helps relax the muscles..a hot bath helps too.

It sounds like a trapped or compressed nerve .
The best thing I found years ago when I was lifting weights, was to dangle yourself from a balcony as if you’re going to lift yourself upand over, and tie something about 5kg to your laces and this opens your spine and everything slots back into place.
It works straight away.

Left groin pain.

Or as we termed it years ago.

"minicab drivers @@@@@@@"

I luckily only had it in a Toledo with sports seats.

Deadlifts
Seated rows

You need to strengthen your back
Some horrible exercises but man they are good for you. :smiles:

I would include squats.

Nothing better for strengthening your back but as you know Jack if there's an issue with alignment and likely posture issues this should be dealt with first.

Body shape is very important with deadlifts, if you have a long torso proptionaly to your legs dont do deadlifts.

For me a TRX is incredible and squats as I have a long torso. My legs are 32inch inner leg, 6foot 2ish (a bit out of proportion) think I'm shrinking at 45

Form is everything with weight training

All saying do this do that but all he needs to do is to change the lifestyle... give your body the time it wants.. if you don’t go gym look after yourself what you will do with the money ??? It’s important but for some money it’s even more important then their body and lifestyle
