Tender Back
My lower back (lumbar region) is very tender. I can barely press it with my finger, and it feels as though I am shoving a rod in it. The pain also lingers after I do this. I bend over quite a bit, picking up my 24 lb. toddler, bathing him, changing him, etc. I had sciatica when I was pregnant with him. Could this have damaged my back?

most back pain (even sciatica) is muscular/postural. visit a website by jolie bookspan---but be prepared-- the answer will probably be that you need to strengthen your core, improve posture etc and this will take alot of work !!!----Paul D'arezzo has a great book on posture w exercises and stretches. low back pain for the most part comes from a forward tilted pelvis, a weak core, tight hamstrings and poor  posture.

Thanks, Mike. At least it's not something too bad. My dr. recommended that I get my back x-rayed. Should I do this?

xrays probably wont show much, other tha a curve i the spie or a bony issue. An MRI would show more, but again, if it were me I'd spend a few moths addressing your posture and retraing muscles with the references i gave you.
