21 Year Old Who Pulled Her Back Out Twice

Hello, I am 21 years old and have pulled by back out twice. 2 years ago and 9 months ago, both while working out. On both occasions, I went to the emergency room. I have been to countless doctors, physical therapists, and massage therapists and still to this date, for the most part, my lower back is still tight and sometimes painful. I have had CT scans, MRIs, and am convinced that my condition is the result of a muscle problem. I have been stretching and working on my core; yet, massages have been the most helpful. But, still I feel as if that just “puts a bandage” on the problem, rather than just finding the cause of my issue. I have noticed that my butt also feels extremely tight, especially the muscles right above my butt on both sides. Also, I noticed that when I sit, my thighs are extremely tight. It hurts when I arch my back and sometimes when I bend forward. Usually, I work out five times a day. However, recently (past week or so), after working out (cycling and elliptical), my tightness and pain have been worse. Can someone help me? Has anyone else been in this predicament?

(Also, I just bought a "beastie ball" to help massage my butt, since I feel my foam roller isn't doing enough.)q
