Help with Back and Hip Pain


Hi everybody,

I’m new to forum settings but I’m quickly losing hope and is ready to turn things around. I have been facing with hip pain for about 6-7 months now. It all started when I was deadlifting sumo and on one of my top sets I felt something on the left side of my hip. The area is on the posterior side I’d say right above the glute. Since then I’ve been having trouble squatting and deadlifting without pain. Since then the pain has gotten worse. I can’t bend forward without feeling pain. I have to walk as if I am dragging my left leg. I’ve been feeling a pain similar to sciatica. Recently it has gotten even worst! Now I’ve noticed that I have a forward learn in my torso and extreme tightness in my lowerback. I do have a herniated disk in the L5-S1 region(if i remember correctly).

Any ideas on rehab exercises or approaches?
