Need some advice on what to do with some chronic back pain I have had for years. I used to work out constantly, and for the past 2 years I have been completely unable to due to overbearing tightness in my lower back and lats.
I’ve seen 2 chiropractors, 2 doctors, 1 physiotherapist and nobody has been able to resolve the problem. I think the biggest issue is that it feels “deep”. Its not something that is obvious…I have no flexibility issues…inactivity leads to it getting worse so I do cardio 2-3x per week 2-4miles and it keeps it at bay, but never any better.
The tender, tight spot is MOST PRONOUNCED during an overhead lat stretch with my arms over and bending to the side. Another stretch felt is bent over lat stretch on the ground.
I stretch and stretch and stretch and it simply won’t give up.
Can anybody give me another idea on how to eliminate this chronic soreness or a direction to take?
