    I have a specialist appointment next week with a rheumatologist as I am HLA-B27 positive, have a night back pain, pain in the lower butt like a sore hammy, back generally feels better after I get up and start to move around etc. Little brother has fairly advanced AS as well.
    Over 12 months now with no more than 5hrs continuous sleep.....did I mention I am more tired than I have a sore back
    Worth a shot, at this point ill try anything.
    As i told Simmsy in a pm, yesterday here at work was the worst day i have had pain wise since i did it by far.
    Ive been having regular chiro/massage since i injured it,in fact i had treatment on it last friday.
    Im at a point where yes, the next step is an MRI.....
    Last night i went to the soccer on 2 Voltaren 25's, and when i got home i was in so much pain i took an Endone....!
    Im off to the doc soon, try get a referral for an MRI.....

    The other thing that I would recommend is stretch those hammies and calves. As simple as even just standing up put one foot back and push your hands against a wall. the foot back you should feel the stretch up your calve. Simple stretch and while it is for the calve I find it actually helps the lower back a bit. My pysio has me doing these and my mum actually got shown a similiar by her physio. May not work for you but worth a try??

    Good luck with it mate...
    My commuter is very rider/cruiser friendly, i have no probs riding it.
    Im stretching daily, but im at a point where i need further investigations....

    Ok, today was extremely productive....
    Went to the medical centre near work.
    Saw a GP, who ordered full blood count (may as well get it all done while I'm there I thought) and the HLA-B27 test recommended by Hux, GP thought that would be a good idea as well...seeing as though it was bulk billed.
    Got full set of pelvic X-rays done as well (not that they will be that useful)
    Got one of my treating specialist to write me an MRI referral.
    As I went to uni (and was close to her back in the day..) with the chief radiographer at the private hospital, she's booked me I to have an MRI done tomorrow arvo, bulk billed!
    So I suppose by fri I'll have all the info I need to determine the next course of attack...
    Question will be whether I see a Musculoskeletal specialist http://www.musculoskeletalgolfinjury...ut-dr-oei.html or sports/ortho specialist perhaps at the footy stadium clinic????

    I have found acupuncture to be extremely effective in my lower back.

    I think Yoss is the best to discuss dry needling in the lower back area though.

    Hopefully you only have a pinched nerve or bulging disc.

    The microdiscetomy (sp?) they do these days at some of the top places is basically day surgery. Probably still a bit of rehab but its not 4 hrs on the slab.
    Cheers

    Early days to be talking about surgery. Should be the last option, IMO.

    CT-guided Cortisone injections have worked well for me.

    Mine lasted 6 weeks. Was good while lasted though.
    Good chat with surgeon yesterday. Got good news about my back. So hopefully it's manageable.

    Ok, not all doom and gloom, but golf will be on the backburner for a few weeks....
    I'll keep the findings brief!

    L4/5 right lateral annular tear and disc protrusion with nerve displacement.
    L5/S1 diffuse disc bulge small post central annular tear.
    L3/4 minimal disc bulge left anterolateral annual tear.

    So at least now I've found the cause of the pain....
    Some rest and stretching.
    Stop Chiro for a while.
    Well see what happens?

    yeah, like you have said mate, good and bad news there.

    atleast you have a cause and direction to head in.

    hope it settles down for you soon.

    I'm bumping this thread because it describes my situation accurately, and is less alarming than other back pain threads from 2009 and 10.

    I had some minor back and hip pain after golf for a while, but it always went away after a day or so. 7 weeks ago, my back 'went', and by the time i got home my back was sore, but my right hip and down my leg was agony.

    The diagnosis was an L5 nerve compression problem, which somehow caused a tear in the gluteous medial tendon in my right hip. Most painful thing I've ever suffered.

    I've had a number of encouraging improving signs and discouraging setbacks with the tendons and muscles in my right hip and groin, but finally I'm recovering.

    I'm allowed to make 20 half swings a day on top of my other rehab exercises. I'm guessing it'll still be a while before full 18 hole golf rounds, though.

    I note some of the posters on this thread and the earlier ones are still active and not reporting further back problems. Any tips on how to prevent this occurring again?

    Good luck with it, Jim. I assume you've got lots of strengthening work to do.

    Hey mate.
    Yep still playing golf but have never swung the same way since hurting my back and going through a couple of years of trying to get back to golf.
    I'd say i manage it pretty well. Lots of "girly" things helped me get back to being able to play and learn when my SI was not liking me.
    Pilates was the best thing I did for learning how to breathe and support my lower back.
    Yoga (bikram and Adriene) are something i continue to this day.
    My GP is a golfer and understands what i'm doing which has helped and always has fed me a good supply of anti-inflamms and forte when things go wrong.
    My physio knows exactly how to treat my issues with needle point and massage and I now go and see him prior to my back playing up as i feel the tightness coming on.

    I don't know of an easy fix, but the above things have all helped me. Cortisone helped at my worst time and allowed me to get through a Vic Champs wend but i wouldn't do that again.

    Good thread this one

    My back is still killing me, has been for years.

    Im pre ankylosing spondylitis, officially have inflammatory spinal arthritis.

    My inflammation markers are high, have inflammation on mri and X-rays, but not graded high enough on left side to be classed as ankylosing spondylitis.

    I struggle in mornings and nights mostly, once up and about not so bad.

    Doesn’t affect golf whilst playing, but back to back days are near on impossible.

    Was on anti inflams daily, but had to come off as stomach issues flared up.

    Fun and games….not

    Gees, Nemo

    You were supposed to tell me how carefree and painfree your life was since you discovered the cure.

    Maybe I can get Courty to give me some encouragement.

    Hmmm, I think it is something that he still manages. I can't think of any other reason why someone would willingly swim laps of a pool.

    Absolutely. Aside from the original injury I have degenerative changes, so it's never going to miraculously heal up. The L5/S1 disc is properly buggered but over the years I have developed a routine that mostly keeps me out of the doctors surgery. I don't even take any regular medication.

    The swimming is two-fold. One, I'm in a team for next years Ironman again. Second, it's just a great general wellbeing activity (physical & mental).
    I can honestly say that my back has responded well and feels better for it. But that would probably apply to any regular activity.

    2 years ago I had a setback and was suffering referred pain from a slightly different site that the cortisone injections didn't help. I ended up getting a procedure called a radiofrequency neurotomy which worked really well. Even though the nerve in question would have well & truly grown back by now the pain has not returned.

    If I was asked to recommend one thing it would be to find the Piriformis & Psoas stretches that work best for you.

    First sign of bursitis and I went to clinical Pilates and then regular Pilates. Small muscles are the answer.
