    Hey Gayan! Never do that. Sitting too long in front of a PC can cause a severe back-pain problem. There will be swelling in the lower back area, and any sudden movement can cause the lower discs to bend or slip. Make sure you don't sit too long, get up, do a few stretches, walk for some time and drink a lot of water. Walking helps. Go for both evening and morning walks. I hope you feel better soon.

    Hi guiydo, thanks for the reply. I have been to see the physio and this sounds similar to what they have suggested - they thought I would need to do stretches and then slowly build up with some strengthening excercises. She said she can feel thickening of the calf muscle where it was originally hurt and thinks that the calf raises might have caused the pain in both outer calves. She started me off with some new stretches which seemed to be going okay but then got me doing some plantar...

    Hi billclinton854, It seems like you may have lesioned your muscles. It may have been muscle tears that may have not healed properly. A proper, progressive muscle strengthening program may help you with your problem although a great amount of time is passed since the beginning. Generally a muscle program starts of with isometric contractions, then concentric contractions followed by eccentric contractions. Finally plyometrics and core stability may be added. This should be integrated with...

    Hi Kazordon, I don't think it is a problem of muscles to strengthen. As the hip exercises didn't work, it would be an option to work on your low back and see if specific movements make it better or worse . If so, then a specific posture and exercise program can be applied otherwise the problem should be searched somewhere else
