After squatting with admittedly tight hip flexors a while back, I’m now getting severe low back pain and tightness in one specific point on my left hand side, right about the iliac crest.
I’ve been stretching the shit out of my hip flexors and piriformis, as well as directly foam rolling the arse and quadratus lomborum, but every time I run for longer than 3-4 minutes, or do high rep step ups/lunges or walk very fast, i have to stop pretty much any motion while the pain goes away.
This is getting on my fucking nerves. I need to up my cardio to lose weight and prepare for my annual fitness test but I can’t run whatsoever. I’ve had to pull out of playing sport as well.
Please, someone grace me with a solution I’ve seen a physiotherapist but she was useless
