this back problem really interferes with my routine life schedule. I am an avid swimmer and am unable to swim. I am usually very active and now going out and doing regular errands is challenging. I bent in a certain position that triggered off the pain. It has been over a month now and I am getting more concerned. I did go to an Orthopedic specialist who referred me to physical therapy but the 2 times I went it made it worse. so I discontinued. the Dr didn't even take an MRI. I am going to a Sports Medicine Dr. in about a week at Langone Institute in NYC. I am hoping to get a better assessment.
