Looking for some help with a lower back strain. It’s been recurring for a few years now. Sometimes I’m fine for months, then one day I’ll be picking something off the ground and the pain comes back for a week or two.
It’s a very localized pain right above my butt crack where the spine meets the pelvis. It’s a dull aching pain when not moving, but bending or over extending my back causes a localized electric type pain.
X-rays are normal, doc won’t give me an MRI saying it’s a waste of money since there’s nothing he can do for a strain.
My best guess is that the original strain healed with scar tissue and my low back is now weakened by that, making it easy to Re-injur.
Anyone have experience with that? I’ve tried chiropractic which seems to speed up the recovery a little. I was curious about trying acupuncture.
I wish it would heal completely, but I don’t think that’s in the cards.
