Robert has developed a muscle spasm in his back, the GP suggests physio the Guru recommends our videos

May 19, 2015

I am 54 and up to recently have been exercising quite vigorously. However approx 2 weeks ago i developed muscle spasm in my lower back on the right hand side

My GP has prescribed anti-inflammatory medication plus a week of muscle relaxer (I think it was diazepam) so the pain is now much better. However there is still some discomfort, I can’t run and as my GP recommended physio I was wondering what the way forward might be.
