Hidden Prankster Sufferer
I think that I have this "hidden prankster" syndrome. I have suffered back pain for many many years.
I have tried Pilates but some of the exercises made me worse. The teacher assumed I was not doing them correctly or not bothering at all. I bought the “Lose the Back Pain" program. Some of those exercises helped, but I believe that the stretches were held too long and it caused my muscles to spasm even more.
I’ve had facet joint injections which helped a bit. But they did nothing for the hip and groin pain and the pain in the gluteal muscle that then radiates down the IT Band. What a mess.
I’ve spent so much money and time and even became depressed because I couldn’t ski or play tennis. I have found a good chiropractor and soft tissue therapist.
But when I get the release treatment for psoas and iliacus (very uncomfortable) the pain comes back after 2 days. They are very confused as to why.
