Has anyone ever experienced a deep ache in the middle back? One of my friend kept trying to crack my back when it wouldn't. The ache is constantly there when I'm standing or sitting. It only feels a little better when I'm just laying flat.
The deep ache feel like its coming from the spinal erectors. i have noticed when I try to sit straight, the pain gets worse, however leaning against a chair would not be as bad. Also, i have notice when i tried doing a butterfly stretch and straightening out my back, the spinal erector muscles where i have the ache cramps up.
I have had this for about 9 months now. i got an x ray, but it showed nothing. The doctor wanted to get a mri, but i was wonder if there is any other options. I also went to a chiro and had a deep tissue massage a few times, but the pain only subsided temporary.
Has anyone else experience this? i would like to recover without having to pay for maybe a unnecessary mri and get back to working out.
