About 6 or 7 weeks ago, I was doing an exercise called a Deadlift, and after the workout, the area highlighted in the photo was sore for the next few days. The last repetition of this was hard and I struggle to 'lockout', but I squeezed my glutes (as you should) and managed it.
The sort of discomfort I got / have had is soreness to 'push' (not touch), and feels a bit tight. As the feeling went, I exercised the week later, but the feeling came back. I then rested for a week on holiday, but one morning I walked to the shops and got a sharp pain, and I had to stop. It went away within a minute. The following day I caught a nerve in my lower back and had shooting pains down my right buttock.
When I got back to UK, I went to see my chiropractor. Although he said it seemed it have free'd itself. I have had back problems since about 12 years old (now 17), but over time they have gone due to strengthening, stretching and regular chiropractor. But still have to go back sometime. My right leg is slightly longer than my left, and the space between L1 and L2 (I think) is less.
The discomfort has been on and off, it only seems to occur after exercises which involve bending at the waist (abdominal work, Deadlifts, Squats). Other work I do (Leg Press, Core work and Upper body) doesnt not aggrevate it. Long periods of sitting (I still study at school) seem to aggrevate things though. More recently, my right lower back has been very mildly achey at times. Sometimes the odd nerve pulse / twitch through my right leg (rare, but has happened). Note - doesnt feel weak or restrictive, and apart from that one time, no sharp pains. Just soreness and tight feeling.
I went to chiropractor on Thursday, and he believed I have soft tissue damage. And ruled out sciatic nerve, although I have been experiencing throbbing through my right buttock and the area shown (still some what skeptical). He also checked to see if I had any signs of a hernia, which I dont. And also stretched and pulled around my legs, which didnt cause any discomfort (legs apart, and pushing my knee to chest...).
This is eased which stretching, and espcially foam roller / tenis ball on my glutes. My right buttock seems to be more painfall with this, and is a bit tighter. When I have had the discomfort in the day, and come back home and do this, it dissappears almost straight away.
Also when generally walking or not sitting too much, I dont feel any problems.
So I have been avoiding things that aggrevate it, but still doing other exercising. So in place of the extra time and hoping that it helps, I have been doing more stability and core work, along with dynamic stretches and static stretches, which also seem to be helping.
Im going to stick with this for 2 months. But I want to try and find out what might be the cause of the problem, as I dont want to have time off and things not improve.
Sorry for the long post, but wanted to give as much info as possible. Any help appreciated!
