Oops, I did it again.
I was trying out some “land mine” squats the other day and they felt awkward.
Anyway a few days later my “famous” lower back (left side) is tender and sore again. For those that don’t know, I have a history of lower back issues that are usually aggravated by back squatting and deadlifting. Usually have 1-2 episodes a year where I am left unable to move off the floor for a week. This time around its not as bad (I can still walk and move around in general), but still extremely frustrating as it means 1-2 weeks away from the gym.
Due to my frustration I presented to my doctor who has given me a referral for a MRI scan of my lumbar spine and hip. I am wondering what information a MRi scan will give me? Im suspecting its either my SI joint and/or general arthritis/degeneration of my spine causing me these issues.
Should I go ahead with the scan. Its expensive and I am wondering if the information I get from it will really be useful?
