      It started with a tweak weeks ago and now it’s bugging me really really bad. Last time I squatted (I do it 3 times a week) was 4 days ago. Usually my lower back is sore after squats and deads. But I haven’t done any movements for the past 4 days and it’s getting worse. I don’t think it’s a muscle. The pain is somewhere near the right side of my last spine discs, but I also feel it’s spread all the way to my right hip flexor and a bit of sciatica type of pain in my right hamstring as well.

      What could it be? GPs in the UK never give referrals for scans if you’re only in pain but can have a normal life (yeah, I can walk, sit, but in a lot of discomfort and some pain as well). 
      What videos would you recommend (pro ones as well) from the website that could help me with this? I am thinking of stopping squatting and deadlifting for the next weeks and only focus on front squats, a lot of abs, lower body exercises that won’t let me round my lower back and a lot of stretching, peanut and foam rolling.

      A tweak to the CNS can take some time to recover.
      With a spinal tweak your body shuts down and down regulates function because it is a primary threat to the system.
      What is the cause of the low back soreness with squats and deadlifts?
