Here is an interesting case that walked into ChiroCarolina® this week.
A 54 year old white male patient presents to the office with a two week onset of 7 out of 10 right sided lower back pain with radiating symptoms into his right buttocks, right hamstring, and back of his knee. He has no history of trauma to his lower back, but does recall getting back into a regimen of working out and running as he did when he was in his 20’s and 30’s. During his workout routine in the past month he has not felt any pain and all of sudden one morning he awoke with this discomfort. He in the past two weeks has been unable to sit for longer than 20minutes, cannot work out, and has significant discomfort while sleeping.
