I'm male, 30 years old, 6'4", 230 lbs. I excersise 3-4 times a week (racquetball, tennis, and body weight training)
I was leaning over the tub when my hand slipped and I had nothing to catch my self on. I used my lower back muscles to stop my forward motion. I've since reinjured by carrying around a carseat and my young daughters.
When I first injured myself, I looked in the mirror and my left side was swollen and it looked like my left hip/back was crooked and held out. I couldn't straighten it. My back is holding itself crooked, I have a lot of pain in my lower back. My left hip feels like it needs to pop, and I have pain in my left hip joint.
It has been months since the initial injury and I am still having similar problems - When I sit for a few minutes I can't stand up straight (especially when I get out of the car after a drive).
I'm looking for any advice on what I may have done, and of course some physical therapy tips for stretching or doing anything that will help this heal.
Thanks in advance!
