anti inflammatory drugs
No twisting movements
Lie on the back with the legs up, feet flat on the floor and head supported.
If you sleep on your back put a roll under the knees and see if this helps.
Have an evaluation at A&E to make sure there is no acute compromise.
They can do simple testing for now.
Let me know if you have more questions.

This is Dr. David
2 year is a long time not to do exercises.
to answer your question, no, I don't think you messed your back up from doing leg press exercises.
but you could have strained your back muscles doing the exercises.
it is often very normal to feel soreness of your muscles when you haven't used them in a long time
exercise over time will help them get stronger
your trainer also should have helped you warm up and stretch your legs and back muscles before and after your workout as well
you also need to make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids and water and electrolytes and avoid alcohol and caffeine after heavy exercise .
most likely your back will be fine. some of the soreness in your back most likely is due to build up of lactic acid in the muscles after exercise.
this will get better in 2-5 days usually
let me know if you have other questions.

Thanks for using JustAnswers.com
thanks for the reply.
I'm glad your back was fine
sore strengthening is a good idea for now.
alternate ice and heating pads on your back muscles to help decrease inflammation and to help relax tight muscles.
thank you so much for the bonus.
