Looked through the forums and found some decent stretches, not sure if they helped tho..
For afew weeks now ive randomly gotten a pain in my lower back, pretty much my hip. Although its only on the left side. Kinda feels like the bone is irritated or hurt. No idea what this but could possible be from squating.Pain comes pretty randomly as i said, altho its more of a dull pain.
Any advice or treatments would be appreciated!
If any more info is needed on the injury lemme know.

I don't know if stretching is the answer here, but tight hamstrings are somehow related to a bad lower back, I have read. You could try some hamstring stretches and see if you do better, but I don't know if the hips still really qualify as "lower back."

Re: Back of Hip Pain

Could be your sacro-iliac - mines the same. There's a heap of stretches you can do. Including pyriformis stretches.

Some good resources are painclinic.org and kalindra.com/sacroiliac.htm.

Its also important to have a strong core so any stability stuff you can do is good- strengthen the gluteus medius (look up the crab exercise) as well.

When mines really bad I go to the physio and he manipulates it and loosens it up.

Re: Back of Hip Pain

Hey Matt it sounds like your SIJ like the previous poster said. Go see your local Chiro he should be able to take care of that with no problem.

For prevention though, a strong core and good flexibility will go a long way. Especially around the hip joint...glut med/max, piriformis, and even the hip flexors which tend to be chronically tight in most people.

After your WOD's throw some ice on there to help with the inflammation.
