I would so appreciative if some can inform me as to how I can rid myself of a sharp pain on the lower left side of my back. It initially began with a jarring sciatic nerve pain in my left hip. I have recently done a myriad of stretches for my hip, and that seemed to relieve me of that symptom.
The sciatic pain also caused a very disagreeable lower back, more along the area of my tailbone (middle area).
The pain on my lower left side prohibits me from certain excercises when lifting weights. For example, if I attempt to perform the deadlift exercise, it hurts to pull. It should not hurt when attempting to deadlift a light to moderate weight.
I tried Alleve and Doans for the lower back (middle area) pain and they did not work. I have tried Aspercreme, as well.
Is there a certain stretch that I can do for the left side?
ALL excercise programs should be cleared and approved by your medical provider post op and specific to your individual condition. It is unwise and unsafe to follow the excercise programs of other members without your doctor's permission.
