      Hello Kevan Because of the number and complexity of structures between your back and leg, you’ll need to see a sports physio or masseur for a proper examination to determine what’s going on.

      Hello Scott Other than the general advice above, you're best off seeing a physiotherapist or sports masseur as they'll be able to tell you exactly where the problem stems from and give you advice on how to prevent it happening again.

    I can feel my bones click at bottom of my back. Am in a lot of pain and can barely walk straight. The pain also go's round to my hip.I've been to the doctors twice in a matter of two weeks. I get pain killers which don't help. Some times I feel my back will collapse. They is a history of arthritis in the lower back in my family. Don't know if I can keep going on like this.

      Hello Dawn If you're unable to try the exercises described on this page, then you might benefit from seeing a local physiotherapist or chiropractor. Adjusting the range of motion in stiff joints and tissues can work wonders for back problems.
