First post in this forum to see if anyone can provide some insight.
im a powerlifter, and in the last 6 months my squat and deadlift have been going down. At first, my training partners noted a tilt to the right as i squatted. I went to Chiro, sure enough i had some leg length discrepancy. L3 and L5 rotated… likely to to overuse of mixed grip sumo (thats a guess, but i could be wrong) Since being corrected in march, ive been in a steady decline, with my back feeling worse and worse. Ive been back to chiro several times, ART several times, and physio.
Last time chiro said sacrum was out of alignment, due to a tight piriformis. My right side QL is insanely locked up, bottom position of a squat affects lower back, even with bodyweight at this point. I also have an internal pop in my hip, which from what im gathering from my own research, is the iliopsoas flipping over the iliopectinial eminence.
Ive been very diligent with LAX rolling, foam rolling, magnificent mobility.
Im at my wits end, been dealing with this since march, last night i tested waters on deadlift after a layoff, and i went out of alignment somewhere, again.
any ideas would be greatly appriciated, and if anyone has experienced this, what did you do and how long did it take to fix you problem.
