"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

 

This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

Last night when I went to bed my lower back was killing me. At about midnight a neighbor woke us up by throwing a baseball at his metal shed over and over again. He and his father were practicing his pitching arm. It sounded like a sledge hammer hitting a car hood . I finally confronted the idiots father who acted like I was the one with the problem. Needless to say I was mad as hell to say the least!
When I went back to bed finally my back didn't hurt any more? Do you think that adrenalin or something similar rushing through my body might have done something to temporairly relieve the pain in my back?

Possibly Scott, i guess adrenaline would temporarily kill pain in an attempt to help you 'run' from the situation so you can get to safety sort of thing.

Dont worry about the daft kid they have absolutely no respect nowadays and the parents are just as bad. their little darlings can do no wrong.

I generally have the opposite effect Scott , in that any confrontation ( stressor ) aggrivates any spasm in my lower back that it brings about spasms that only rest or relaxation ( a few good wines ) brings about !
Ive seriously considered relaxation classes for my disorder , as I know the stressors that bring about such episodes ( and its rarely physical ... ie; exercise )

ya, that's about says it all.

it's such a complex piece of biomechaincal engineering and with every insult its mechanical signature changes.

AJ's MedX is light years ahead of everyone else. if for no other reason they know to solve a problem first you must define it. To define it you must ISOLATE it to study it.

I wasn't worried about the teenage kid, I didn't even notice him much , it was the dad who saw no wrong in his son waking up the whole neighborhood at midnight by smacking base balls against a metal shed. Kids tend to mimick what their parents do so I'm afraid this kid in in for a troublesome life.

Perhaps mystified is too strong a word. How about "flummoxed"? They know what the likely causes are, they are just helpless to fix them with traditional medicinal and or surgical approaches.

Just as with abdominal pain in women, the problem is that in this area of the body, the sensory nerves give precious little information. They give the sufferer no real clue as to what is wrong. It just hurts. The cause can be any number of things.

There is nerve pain where in one or more of the nerve roots exiting the spinal column is impinged by a misalignment and or malformation of one of the vertebral bodies. If this is the case, the pain usually radiates down the leg on the affected side. If it stays in the back, it's probably more localized muscle pain.

But it might then be something relating to the organs, probably kidneys or bladder and may be an infective process. Unlikely in Scott's case, but a possibility.

In this case, Scott, you rose out of bed angrily and made yourself ready for a confrontation. Definitely a stress situation as someone else already noted. Here are what I consider the two most likely possibilities.

A. In getting up angrily, you "jerked" some part of your spine actually improving the alignment of things and alleviating the pain. I actually consider this the most likely possibility (chiropractor heal thyself?).

B. Under stress, we produce lots of cortisol which raises energy levels and more importantly is a very potent anti-inflammatory. It is basically natural prednisone which is about the most effective and oft prescribed drug for back pain in Western medicine.

My money is on A., but B. is a strong possibility as well.

How are you feeling now?

Probably wasn't so much the adrenaline so much as the leg stretch...

Ever driven for a prolonged time and needed a 'leg stretch'? Not just for the legs but the spine because sitting recumbent for so long tends to strain the lower region of the spine.

Actually before I go to bed I usually do back and leg stretches to try and prevent the back pain and that night I had done them as well.It really doesn't help much though.

After I got back from the incident I lay there for well over 2 hours too uptight to go to sleep and I noticed the pain wasn't there. I was thinking the ache in my back would come back shortly but it seemed to stay away most of the night? I can't figure it?

Yes, the next night my back had it's usual aches.I usually do some stretching before bed and put pillows under my knees when sleeping to make it more bearable. The fun of getting old.
