I have been trying the TMS approach for a while now after few years of chronic back pain, but not yet pain free. Anyhow, the other day I bent to lift something - twisted and sprained a muscle in my low back. Not a medical diagnosis, just my guess at what happened. On various occasion over the past 20+ years, I have had similar episodes, which cause pain that gradually lessens and I gain mobility after a month or so. Couple questions: Any suggested treatments to reduce the pain and speed recovery? Since I would not consider this "chronic" and assume I will recover back to my usual back pain, would this incident be a TMS condition?
