Re: Could this be back injury-related?
Hi, yes it does sound like your original problem was not completely taken care of since you still had pain and tightness. Disk problems can cause these symptoms and there is also a bundle of nerves in that area that when injured or pinched, cause buttock and groin pain. I hope you can get an MRI to find the cause as this can be treated. Muscles do not cause these symptoms by themselves, so PT would not be enough. If you type in your symptoms in a search engine, you can see the part of the spine that is most likely causing it. Physical therapy works great for muscle problems, but if it is a disk or pinched nerves, you most likely need other treatments.
