Oliver....Yes, get an MRI and find out what is causing the pain. Your story is just like mine. Same pain. I lived on the floor for 2 months after 3 chiros, 3 epiduals (painful and useless), acupuncture, stretching/hanging...you name it.
MRI showed herniated disc L5-S1 and I chose minimally-inavasive selective endoscopic disectomy.
Here is link on the subject. I truly believe that stretching and chiros MAY help under certain circumastances, but if the disc or discs are herniated, those things may do further harm. Good luck.
