Do you sit all day while gaming? Do you have low back pain from sitting? You must take care of this pain!
Low back muscle strains happen when there is an overload of poorly conditioned tissues, leading mild structural damage to the tissue which brings on pain, inflammation, loss of motion and difficulty with tasks such as sitting, standing, bending, lifting and squatting. While these tissues (muscles, ligaments, etc.) will heal with time, the first 24-72 hours can be particularly challenging. Your body has amazing abilities for adaptation to pain with movement, but during this initial period it is advisable to reduce activity and modify movement to allow for maximum recovery. Rarely ever is complete bed rest called for; instead, be selective with how you move and increase your rest, but don’t lay in bed for a prolonged period as the de-conditioning you’ll experience will often be worse than the effects of moving with some back pain.
