I injured my lower back (popped a hip out of place which distorted my spine) a few months ago and only recently been to a chiro. to get it fixed. I'm pretty much "fixed" and had my final appointment two weeks ago.

On my doctors request, I've start building up my activity levels, but I've noticed that my lower back and hip has been holding a dull pain more than normal.

I ignored it and made a follow up appointment next week and decided to go for a light jog this morning. 10 mins in I got severe cramps in my front hips/side of stomach area, and 5-10 mins after that my thighs turned beat red/pink and the skin felt like it was burning. It radiated to my butt (like in the fat... :P) The pain when away after walking for a little bit and rubbing my legs, but every time I'd try to run again, it would start up, and faster.

I was able to make it home and I noticed that the pain has dulled, but my legs became numbish and cold to the touch compaired to the rest of my body.

What's going on? A week ago, I did a light jog and went swimming and NO pain.

  • Hi, I am a physcial therapist. It sounds like you are not really 'fixed'. The symptoms you described still sound like they could be related to your lower back. Most importantly I would follow up with a good orthopedic doctor. And if you have not yet seen a physical therapist to guide you on your return to activity, this would also be a wise choice. For information about specific lower back conditions and related exercises programs you can visit: http://www.joint-pain-solutions.com/Lower-back-pain.html Good luck.
