Help! I'm a 35 yr old Male that is normally very active. However, I threw out my back 3 weeks ago. Initially it was 100% all back pain. Now it's 90% quad pain and 10% back pain. The pain seems to worsen while standing, walking and now lying on my stomach. The strange thing is I initially felt good lying on my stomach doing mckenzie stretches. I know I should be patient and it may self heal in another month or so, but I would live to hear if anyone has experienced something similar and any recommendations for speeding up the recovery. I'm itching to get back in the gym and be able to be more mobile. Right now I can move around for 5 min after lying on my back or sitting before the pain is too much.
