I'm 17, a left handed, medium/fast bowler. The pain originates about 2 inches to the left of my spine around the lumbar area. I've done heaps of research but there's nothing much there that can 'fix' it. It hurts when i lean backwards and sneeze. Its also tight after slouching for a while then trying to stand up straight. And it kills when i push it hard or lie on a tennis ball. I may have started last season and in my first training session this season, maybe 7 weeks ago, i may have gone a bit hard. Since then i haven't really been bowling, trying to rest it. The season starts this weekend so I'm hoping its ok for me to bowl but I'm worried the pain will come back. It usually hurts for 3 days, goes away, then comes back the next time i bowl I figured it may be my action so I've fixed that but the pain still persists. I use to place my foot front/mid on and my shoulders were side on. Now I'm fairly front on. Any help will be greatly appreciate as this is causing me so much trouble Thanks again Stan B.
