I spend a great deal of time sitting at my desk studying for the MCAT or classes. I have been having an issue with lower back pain so I purchased a steelcase leap chair. That has helped some but my back is still hurting! What can I do? I do not want to take medicine every time my back hurts!

Back stretches.
1. Lay on your back and cross one leg as far over the other as possible for 5-10 sec. Repeat with the other leg. Do these several times.
2. In the same position raise your butt as high in the air, with your upper back and feet planted for several seconds, repeat several times.
3. Laying on your stomach, lift both your legs and arms up into a superman-ish pose, maintain for several seconds.

These usually work well for me!
