I'm posting on behalf of my husband, who, in typical manly fashion, has difficulty seeking medical opinions.
A few weeks ago he went over a gorge and when he landed, he felt the bike hit him in the. . . . buttocks. He said he felt "something give" when it happened, but he didn't have any pain until about 24 hours later. Ever since, he's had intermittent pain eminating from above his right buttock (sort of lower back), down the back of his leg. He says the pain in his leg hurts worse than his back. Sometimes no pain - then he'll move a certain way or stand up, and it's all he can do to stand up straight.
He says it doesn't hurt when he rides - except today he pulled a wheelie, and said it hurt when he came down a little quick.
I'm no medical expert, but I suspect it might be sciatica. What are the most likely causes of the symptoms he's having? Are there exercises he can do to help his condition?
Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions.
