Pars Stress Fracture
The only thing that seems to conflict is the standing/straightening aggravations. It actually aggravates me more sitting down or bending over, which is one reason I think it's hip muscles. Ruh-tarded. Either way, what's necessary for me to heal and rehab seems to be borderline same. I'll start to lay off heavy lifting, which blows because I was actually gaining progress towards my goals for once. I'll also start working on hip stability more. It's been too long since I've worked on my plyometrics and such, so I feel ya

Hard to say, i don't even know your age... nothing could be wrong with your back but if it's still swollen and causing you this much pain, something is wrong somewhere.
It's good to work on hip flexibility in general and maintain coordination of all the parts of your body but sometimes we just gotta know right?
A lot of boarders i see, i would say on average for being able to jib as good as they can, their balance is absolutely atrocious. Being strapped in overcomes our natural imbalances, but when we're not strapped in like most of our lives, these imbalances start becoming more and more apparent the worse and worse they get.
With the low back it's never just one thing, you gotta look at everything from head to toe. Just pieces to a puzzle.

Muscles are the main contractile element, tendons are there to anchor the insertion into the bone and not split apart. When want to reduce tension on the tendon you want to reduce the muscle belly spazm aka lengthen the muscles.
Practitioners have been getting it wrong for years by working out the IT band... Yes it's sore but rolling out an IT band actually does nothing, you're more than likely hitting myofascial junctions of your quads.
To effectively and efficiently address IT band problems you absolutely must look at glutes and TFL before you ever look at the IT band.
IT band is the area of pain but the cause of that pain is in the muscles.
Go get imaging on your low back. You don't have to take a prescription like most MD's will prescribe but there's no point in beginning rehab unless you know what the problem is. So if you have a frigging pars fracture, it changes the ball game completely.
Also bird dog, glute bridges, cat camel, side bridges, dead bug in their primary stages are full back rehab exercises. They get people better for a reason, but you need someone to progress you through them. TIred of people starting at the hardest variations and saying it hurt. Well no shit, because 99% of the population can't do the hardest variations

Haha obviously if i'm going to be putting in the effort, I'll be working everything else in the process so no worries on that. I think I was actually trying to refer to hitting pressure points/nerve fibers that activate the given muscle. So there's that..lol

And just out of curiosity, from what experience gives you this perspective? Because I'm not sure if I 100% agree on certain things you've mentioned, as i've had conflicting perspectives. For example specifically targeting pressure onto tendons has made tremendous results on releasing muscle tightness in various areas of my body
