You won't regret it, the more he looks like yoda, and the less you can understand him, the faster you will recover.

What helped me is when the chiro uses that electricity machine on my back. Then he moves my spine back into place if it's out of place.

The electricity tends to help loosen my muscles, please go see a chiro that does that if he /she isn't doing that.

He also rec me to take these.

Actually there is another better technique similar to acupuncture. Look for a physical therapist that is certified in "dry needling". Insurance usually will cover it, you typically get a set amount of visits per injury with typical insurance policies.

Dry needling goes a slight bit deeper and releases the nerve tension. It's instant relief except you will be sore like you got a really good deep tissue message.

This is also great advice....

So update:

After going through and exploring possible explanations, I came across 2 possibilities and it could be a combo of both!

First was it could be a possible strain on my quad. The muscle would then cause extreme tightness throughout my hip and lower back(which I have both)

and second is it it could be a possible hip/girdle muscle strain which again would create the tightness in my lower back. Since I've been exploring and stretching out my hips, I've definitely noticed something different. I'll update in another week or two with this new perspective

Ice. Stretch. Foam Roll. and throw in some spa/steam room sessions. I'd try some epson salt, but soaking my hips and lower back would be...difficult

Just curious... but in human medicine, is "back pain" an actual diagnosis? In veterinary medicine, it would be a sign or symptom.

Roll your IT bands too, probably the most painfull thing I can think of doing but it sure feels good after. Do you not have a bathtub?

I know it hurts like a bitch. But my hips are SO tight that when I roll on the IT band on my left side where the injury is, I hardly feel it. Damn that's tight.

I have one of those half showers/tubs. I guess I just didn't want to dump in enough to even out the ratio I'm po' dammit haha

It's a diagnosis for i don't know wtf is wrong pretty much, but it is an official diagnosis.
Back pain can be caused by a million different things.... Dysfunctional movement patterns is probably the most cutting edge, but can also come from, discs, facets etc etc etc...

As for rolling IT Band, waste of time, you need to role out your glutes and TFL. Rolling out tendons takes months-years to affect the length where muscle bellies take days-weeks to see changes.
Although hip "tightness" can influence backpain immensely due to improper loading, you had a severe impact to your low back... you need to get checked out. At least a front to back, side and oblique low back x ray when you're standing.
