If you have low back/hip/groin pain that seems to be deeper or different than a typical low back pain feeling with aching/and or burning read my comments TO Kristy_27 about the Priformis Muscle. Its often overlooked by the medical profession and can cause much pain and expense because it doesn't show up on any diagnostic tests.
Even small amounts of leg length discrepancy can cause hip/groin pain. Doctors told me 1/2 inch difference wouldn't matter, but they were wrong. Correcting the difference made hip/groin and nerve pain going down leg disappear. I have no back problems to cause the pain. Lower nerves were just getting trapped.
