Hello, I found the website online and I have a question about lower back pain. My name is Josh and I am 22 years old from Canada and am an avid powerlifter. I have had an injury for the last few months and I get moderate sharp pain when leaning side to side while arching. It's not serious or excruciating but I also get a mild burning that radiates down to the legs. My chiro and physiotherapist told me to keep working out but I'm worried this won't go away. I feel like I need to take time off and just do cardio or something but my physiotherapist seems to think it is a herniation that will go away eventually if I keep doing the Mckenzie stretching and work my core more, any ideas? I really just want to powerlift again and this injury is just very frustrating. I have tried fixing posture and exercising with perfect form but my sciatic nerve still seems to be affected along with my back. Lately I have been feeling a burning sensation in my buttocks,lower back, arms, and fingers along with feet. Not excruciating but very annoying! I would really like an MRI done. I have been sleeping on the floor lately which seems to potentially help posture. I also feel I may have lumbar lordosis because I have a lower inward curve in the back when laying down and when doing a wall test. I have seen a chiropractor, physiotherapist, doctors, but I think it's time to see an orthopaedic doctor and/or neurosurgeon, what do you think?
