I'm young and in good shape, so I've never hurt my back before. I have no benefits and even if I did we're so short I couldn't take time off without getting fired. I really strained my back and I hope it's just a minor thing. It's the lower part, lumbar region. Last week had very heavy volume. How do you deal with a sore back? What are some tips? If it gets worse I'm going to seek medical attention.
