Patient :I had cat scans on my lower back a month ago after back pain to reveal stress fractures on both sides of bone between discs in my lower back. I think the numbers referred to were 3 and 4. Since then I have slightly improved in movement but still have alot of trouble squatting, bending over and I cant bend to the side as it hurts too much. I have been seeing physios and started pilates as they say by strengthening the core muscles the bone will have more support and get better as time progresses. Is there more I can do?
