Massage/Chronic abdominal symptom - is it related to back problems?

The answer above is completely WRONG!!!   You have probably torn your oblique muscle.  These do not show up on typical MRI.  Go see either doctor William Brown in San Francisco or Dr William in Philadelphia.  They are both abdominal muscle injury specialists.

My unexpected specialty has been correction of disorders caused by working conditions. Who knew that office work could hurt so much and be so damaging? Your back and neck pain is correctable, let's talk about it. I also specialize in post-operative rehabilitation and if I don't know the answer I can at least point you in the right direction. I've been working on pre-medical studies on my way to becoming a doctor and would be happy to take questions about anatomy, physiology and all of that fun stuff too.
