I’ve posted before about my issue. I have a self-diagnosed posterior pelvic tilt. This has caused my lumbar to flatten instead of having the natural inward curve. It also changes the way the vertabrae roll and function as a group and my lumbar section bends as one whole unit instead of rolling when I bend. I also experience pretty bad sciatic bad because of the vertabrae being angled improperly. I am not sure what caused what, whether my tight hamstrings caused my PPT or vice-versa.
It feels better after exercise (I can do most recommended exercises for hip mobility etc. apart from any forward bending, toy soldiers, etc.), and good when laying in certain positions. Standing for long periods can be bad (was terrible but slowly improving), sitting/driving is bad. I am a decently healthy BMI male. Not overly active …
I had an MRI and the results are (I will write exactly what is written):
No previous. 5 lumbar vertabrae. The conus ends at L1. it has 1 normal appearance.
There is a focal central and right posterolateral disc protrusion at L5-S1. It is small to moderate in terms of size. It measures 1 4 cm [do they mean “1.4cm”??] at its base and 0.5cm in maximal AP dimension. It is causing mild distortion of the thecal sac and is compressing the traversing right S5 nerve root. There are no further significant findings.
Right posterolateral disc protrusion at L5-S1 compressing the traversing right S1 nerve root.
Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations? Anything (…) is appreciated.
