Can a massage actually fix this back spasm, or will I feel good for an hour and then go back to being in pain? I have three days to get better so I don't have time to fool around. Yoga? Muscle relaxants? What's got the best shot at actually doing something? [more inside]

Are there alternatives to the lotus position for classic meditation that don't leave the back unsupported? I've found that sitting in an unsupported position, or in a chair that doesn't have a seat back, ends up making my back ache rather strongly. I've thought about investigating meditation (and looking into the more classical, early practices), but have wondered if there's a "kosher" (accepted in the discipline) way of doing the more classical meditations while having your back completely supported (by lying on the ground, or doing it in a chair, or what have you).
