Hi guys. I posted on here a while back about a slipped disc I had. While I have oreocressed nicely since then I have returned to the gym with no spinal problems. However ever since I bulged a disc (confirmed mri) I have had a very tight QL.
I have been using a lacrosse ball every day probably 3 times a day mainly going lightly on it, as when I go too brutal it seems to make it worse? I have also been doing lots of stretches without success. In the gym I have been doing KB lunges, Bulgarian splits, single leg deadlifts and lots of KB windmills and swings.
I have also spent a lot of time rolling my hip flexors and hamstrings etc so everything is nice and loose.
I went to a physiotherapist but she went in hard and made it a lot worse.
It only hurts when I’m sitting, specifically in the car.
It doesn’t bother really working (tree surgeon) or walking, running, cycling etc.
I’m desperate to get this sorted, and I feel I have done everything I can do. Don’t really want to spend loads of money if possible as I’m fairly skeptical about physios now. Anyway I have seen a deep tissue massage on amazon, would these help?
