what happened is that your lower lumbar area got shifted, and with the muscle spasms it made knots hold the spine in an awkward way. I woudl go see a chiropractor, he will get you all situated in about a month. same thing happend with me on my last pregnancy. make sure the one you choose has a massage therapist there and includes the massage with the treatment each time. this will help your body get back on track.

Congratulations on your babies.
Since you recently gave birth, ,your body is still out of whack. How about a good quality massage (maybe a package where you can go weekly or something like that)
My hubby sent me to get a massage about once every 2 weeks for a while after baby. At that time, (daughter is now 14) I got the massages at Signature Athletic Club in the Addison area since we were members there. Since then, I go to L'Image in Plano for massages, facials, etc.
Also make sure you are exercising properly because your alignment is also out of sorts.

Back pain is my constant companion since I got hurt in the military. All I can suggest is to take Alieve. Also, heating packs help. Take and old sock fill it with rice and heat it up. Cheap heating pack. Also, baths with epsioms and sea salt helps. Massages are great if you can afford them. Also, I am not a major new age person but stretching helps and so does pilates and the balls. It is important to stretch.... If these don't help, I have more feel free to drop me a line.
I have nerve damage in my back in L5-S1 and neurological claudication. I have had steriod and pain shots and muscle relaxers. But a good rule of thumb is stretching. I also have narrowing in my spine and neck. as well as compressed disks from jumping out of plains. The machines where you hang upside down too. Be a monkey on the jungle gym. LOL, stretching and keeping your weight down are big factors.
Good luck! And try to stay active. Also, make sure there is no damage to your back, Get and MRI and a CT done.

After a terrible car accident, I found complete relief with massage and accupuncture! The neurosurgeon recommended surgery, which I was not comfortable with, then suggested accupuncture as an alternative. Alan Chen in Plano is my accupuncturist. I saw Dr. Chen for 13 sessions. 11 years later, I have occassional, controllable pain with no lifestyle restrictions. I also do weekly Christian Pilates.
