I have had on and off low back pain for about 5 months. It's real sporadic. I feel like sometimes doing deadlifts helps and sometimes it doesn't. I try stretching my back out quite a bit before going to the gym. It will feel good for a couple weeks and then all of a sudden start hurting again. I am a student so it might be related to leaning over at a desk studying for hours each day.
I just don't want to be causing any permanent damage. The pain isn't crippling but it definitely hurts. If anyone has had a similar problem what have you found helpful, stretches, etc.? I've tried taking some time off but when I go to the gym and workout it sometimes makes the pain go away. I'm doing SL 5x5 right now, btw.
If I were to pursue this what kind of doctor should I go to?
