BJJ made my lower back feel better and Muay Thai made it feel worse. It took about a year of BJJ to notice the difference. I believe it is because BJJ leads to way more core strength than Muay Thai. Also, in Muay Thai we tended to do more things that aggravated it like running and standing around on concrete.
