21 year old male here. Excuse my bad English. Long story short, I tweaked my back because of frequent squatting and a lot of standing up in school 6 months ago.
The pain is dull, located next the the spinn L5-S1 on the left side and radiating a bit along the iliac crest. When I slouch in my lumbar spine (to the left side), or let my left hip "hang", that is when I feel the most pain. Pain worsens as I sit or stand for a long time. To describe it it feels like the ligaments between my spinal processes are going to rip open if I put too much pressure on them. Any sort of slouching in this area causes strong pain... 7/10
Been to a doctor and physiotherapist who gave the diagnosis lumbago, which is unlikely in this case. A Chiropractor noticed two vertebraes T12-L1 were stuck to the left I think (because of rotational force) and adjusted this 2 months ago. But the pain persists further down.
I'm in deep desperation for help here. It has affected my mental state state tremendously. I am even considering skipping next season in medical school as I wont be able to attend due to pain.
Disc protrusion? Pelvis torsion? Multifidus muscle?
