It has been made apparent that my back problem isnt muscular but a "sciatic nerve" problem.
A 'chiro' took my legs and pulled them to see if my legs were aligned and he said one was shorter than the other. He says this causes this nerve to be pinched resulting in this 'pinched' pain.
Truth is, I havent done any lower body work in over 2 months. I have stretched through some lower back pain that is now gone completely, BUT this sciatic nerve shit is worse than ever!
My question is, how can I see my way through it? Keep stretching? I do self-myofacial release on my lower back, hams, glutes, and IT band. I stretch my hams, glutes, lower back, and hip flexors (actively and static-ly).
This doesnt seem to be helping. I can keep getting adjusted by the chiro, but it adds up in $$.
Anyone conquered this problem before?
