9 months in pain

Hi im a 22 year old guy, and injured my back about 9 months ago, when i was lifting with pretty bad technique. Since then i've had pain mostly in the lower right side of my back, but sometimes the pain occurs in my left side too. I've never had pain shooting down my legs. The pain is bareable until i start bending to much or lifting heavy things, then it comes back strong! And stays around for a day or two. Although usually when i wake up in the morning, the pain seems to be gone, but always returns within a few hours.

I have seen 2 physical therapists and they gave me some good exercises, when i finish doing them, the pain seems to dissapear for about 1 hour, only to return. What could that be?

I used to train mma 5 days a week, it was my great passion, but i stopped since the pain is to much, i hope someone can help and i hope you guys are well on your way to your recovery. :)

    welcome to spine-health

    we have a number of young members that join after a bad lifting injury.

    the good news is you don't have pain shooting down your legs and you stopped what caused your injury.  walking is a good way to keep the blood flowing to your muscles if you can manage that.  if your walking is restricted and the physio exercises are not helping, it is probably time to get things checked by your doctor.

    there are no medical professional on this site and it is against forum rules for members to give medical advice

    i have added two links below to help new members with information and these also contain the forum rules.  there is lots of material to research that will give you the power of knowledge.
