After some advice if possible? So... I am a big stocky lad, but I used to run quite a bit... back in 2018 I was comfortable doing 5km's, 10km's, and up to 11.8 miles. I wasn't the fastest, but I was consistent.
Roll around December 2019, I start a charity challenge on the 1st. One mile in, I get a really painful jarring pain in my back after 1.5m. I rest a day, and go again the next day, same again... I gave myself December off with the plan to go again in January 2020, thinking something had been up that would heal.
Unfortunately due to a family bereavement in Jan, I didn't get out again, and that went onto Feb, then March, then we got locked down. I then put on a lot of weight..
... however, I then tried to go for a run again, and after 0.6m I could feel a sore jarring in my lower back. I stopped running.
I eventually got so bad that I had an MRI at hospital on my spine... the rheumatologist I saw said I had a faultless spine and that I should have physio for my tight back. I've been seeing her for months now, and whilst my back muscles have loosened up somewhat (back to pre-COVID levels), I still have a big worry about going out and running again and having that jarring pain.
If I front my worry and go out again, but have the lower back jarring pain again, do I need to see a chiropractor for an issue in-case something is out? I'm unsure where I'd go if my MRI shows no spinal issues, no base of spine problems....
Any advice on who I should see?
Thanks in advance!
