I’ve got a real pain in the **s! It began roughly 6 years ago which started with a fall while snowboarding. I thought it was a bruise and it never went away. I put up with it for maybe 3 years as it would increase and decrease in pain on a regular basis, sometimes I got to the point where I had to do something about it and then the next day it wasn’t so bad so I put up with it. Anyway I eventually went to a doctor who diagnosed me with Piriformis Dysfunction (which I can’t seem to find anything on). I went to physiotherapy where I got some stretches which for the most part seemed to be working. The pain was still there but at least with these stretches I could manage it a little better.
Eventually the stretches stopped working so I went back to see the physio. (I also had a couple of rounds of chiropractor) they gave me some magnificent stretches which after maybe 3 weeks and 4 sessions the pain was gone. That was last year.
I one day lift something heavy which gives me a twinge in my lower back. This in turn sets off my sore hip again. So I go back to physio and it’s the same old stretches so I do those and nothing. I try the exercises and nothing... I’m currently getting chiropractic help to try and solve the issue and it seems my hip is misaligned, my lower spinal discs are a little crushed and this is believed to be the problem.
I can sit fine without pain, I can lie down without pain, what I cant do is stand up from sitting, sit up from lying, sneeze, cough, run, walk at any faster rate than a limp or bend over.
It’s very annoying and what I would like to know if anyone else has this and if they managed any exercises or stretches that could get me out of this bind, I experienced a pain free year and I would really like that feeling back... I’ve also got a bit of tenderness on my lower back where I believe the sacroiliac joint is, I don’t know if that connected.
Sorry this has got a bit drawn out. I hope someone can help
