OK Ive basically got a lower back injury, big deal you say but hear me out!!
Ive had knee problems in the past from running, specifically illio-tibial band syndrome (tightness) in my left leg. I went to physiotherapy and a biomechanic specialist who diagnosed this and gave me insoles to correct my flat, over-pronating feet. This sorted the problem out and Ive been running pain free for a few months now.
Now Ive been lifting hard and heavy (like a true T-Man should!!) and increasing my deadlift nicely. However Ive been getting slight pain in the right side of my lower back. Ok, I thought, I have a slight imbalance but it should correct itself if I concentrate on good form. But the other day after running the pain went from slight to umm not slight!
So my question is, could a LEFT leg problem cause a RIGHT side lower back problem? My guess is that its a combination of heavy deads, good-mornings and the running that have all brought the problem about.
Ive read loads on T-Nations articles and stuff from running sites regarding lower back pain so please dont flame me (unless its funny in which case flame away)
