This is classic TMS right?

    My lower back keeps getting really stiff and painful when I am at work. I will get it standing or sitting (especially without back support). However when I'm not at work it's fine!

    I sat without back support at a bar the other day for hours, and my back was absolutely fine. I can stand at home for hours and my back is fine. However if I do the same at work, then my back is so stiff and painful. This must be classic TMS right? Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, I just would like someones opinion! Or has anyone experienced anything like this?

    I have seen a chiropractor in the past and he did say I had a very tight back. I have never really had any success with chiropractors though. I am thinking of going back, but from what I have read about TMS chiropractors aren't the solution! Does anyone else agree?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you have a classic TMS symptom. Chiropractors will not help you. Inquire into what your thoughts and feelings are about your job, and address these psychological issues.

    Best wishes to you......

    Thanks! I need to stop thinking physical and start thinking emotional! I am so used to thinking there must be something physically wrong. I am starting to think there must be something deep down bothering me. It's difficult to get out a bad habit.

    I think seeing a chiropractor is a knee jerk reaction. My last chiropractor just made me angry! He charged a lot of money, didn't listen to what I was saying, ignored me, persuaded me to have xrays when I didn't want them and had bad time keeping.

    I’m thinking your personality type could suggest TMS is at work here. ;)
