    Is it possible that doing a 20min run is causing pain in my lower back. I had started running ever since I bought my treadmill a couple of months back.

    I do do a warm up and don't eat upto an hour before I start my run.

    Any thoughts.

    Go to a chiropractor or osteopath. It's likely something is out of place and they'll be able to pop it right back in no time.

    It's probably minor - something misaligned. Get the main problem sorted then you can revert to treating it yourself, get a 'jacknobber' and a foam roller and you can sort out just about any musuclar back problems at home.

    You basically stick it in the sore point of muscles either by putting it in your hand or by lying on it, wait for the often intense pain to subside then stretch the area - hey presto pain gone.

    Well if it works I will certainly give it a try. Thanks for your suggestion.
