An injury such as a sprain can often damage the integrity of the ligaments and the motion of the spinal segments, leading to a weakening of the disc tissue. Proper spinal motion is necessarry for the influx of nutrients and water into the disc (which is necessarry for healing), so without proper support to regain and maintain this motion, the discs are more likely to bulge, herniate, or deteriorate. At this point your symptoms seem to point to inflamation as well as some mild physical compression of nerve tissue in your low back. Chiropractic care earlier may have prevented this, but it will still probably be very benificial to you now. It may take more time to rehabilitate your injury now, and nutritional support may be worthwhile as well. Active therapy such as pilates may benifit, but do not attempt until you have a consult and exam to make sure you are ready for it.
