I don't know if I am posting in the right place. I just injured my lower back and I have pain starting from my butt running down my right leg, the pain gets worse when I stay in bed or when I sit down. However, the pain seems to subside when I walk. Two doctors said that it takes quite a long time to heal and prescribed painkillers while a physiotherapist said that I got injured due to incorrect squatting. However, I think it is because I was working out legs with squats and deadlifts twice a week. I guess I was overtraining and I used to feel wiped out the day after leg training. Was I overdoing it?
I always squatted to parallel or a little less. He suggested that I should only do the half squat. My concern is: Will I be hitting the glutes, quads and hams really well when I do half squats?
