Hi, I'm an 18 year old male. I've been having lower back pain for months along with other symptoms that resembled a disc problem or sciatica. I had an MRI today and everything was completely normal in my spine. I don't have any "visible" problem in my back.
The doctor concluded that my core was more than likely weak. See I am 6'10" and 285 lbs so I am huge and I grew really fast. Fast as in 6 inches over 1 summer. So my muscles never had the time to catch up because my body size was constantly changing.
I am set to start PT soon, but until then I want to start doing some core, and legs stuff to improve strength. I have an exercise ball to work on core stuff.
I am going to work with my basketball team which is a college starting in April and they will help me with absolute strength (weight training) but I want to get my basic strength and foundation improved right now. And any stretches are appreciated as well. I have very tight hamstrings.
Thanks to everyone reading and have a blessed day.
