Yoga and foam roller homie.
Sir, I'm going to politely, but firmly, ask you and your common sense to leave this establishment.

If youíre generally flexible, itís most likely you need to do strengthen. For me Iím flexible so I have to do core, glute and leg stability exercises like the McGill big 3, and avoid stretching for the most part. If youíre not a flexible person, you likely will need to work on general mobility and stretching. If your PT sucks I recommend trying a few, took many tries before finding one who good actually help. Best of luck dude, been working on mine all week as itís flared up so I feel your pain.

Ok, so I feel like i have enough knowledge/experience to speak more to this. My issue was that a facet joint near my pelvis wasnít functioning correctly, hence the pinching sensation that wouldnít go away.

My personal lesson has been that motion is the best remedy. What really made the difference has been various kinds of movement all day.

I worked with a physical therapist for 2+ months and he gave me a stretching/strengthening routine that i do once a day. A good mix of dynamic stretches (inchworms are the best exercise iíve done- stretches/warms up the hamstrings very efficiently) and core exercises. I still do those, but Iíve since added lifting weights (squats, overhead presses) to my routine. Iíve also been biking as much as i can and thatís been extremely helpful. Basically just strengthening my full upper back, core, and legs.

I eased into all this, adding a little at a time. Also, it started off with the exercises causing more agitation. It was not a linear progression, some days were way more painful. Regardless, it was so important to just power through and do my exercises no matter what.

I started skating a couple weeks ago, starting on the cruiser board, then slappies/basic flatground. Each day gets a little easier. Still not hopping on a ledge but I think itís time to just fucking do it.

 Itís funny, i thought after not skating for 7 months i would be the one begging my physical therapist to say itís cool to skate. But he was the one who told me that my confidence levels were low and if I wanted to skate again i needed to start slow and build up to it. He told me that if I can lift weights and ride a bike with a stable core i can sure as shit skate. Honestly, super grateful i found this physical therapist (Seattle area folks, pm me if you want this guys info.)

Sorry for the long post- but i did want to share my experience with a super persistent lower back injury.
