No I don't foam roll but the way things are going these days I will probably have to if I want to keep working out at all. I'm pretty sure my back injury isn't just a sprain/strain this time. I think I may have a compressed disc due to my exaggerated lumbar lordosis. I've been doing some research and I think I need to:

1) Stretch my low back/hip flexors
2) Strengthen my abs and glutes

I think this should hopefully rotate my pelvis back to a more neutral position where it should be. I believe I have an anterior pelvic tilt (butt and gut stick out and excess curvature of the spine).

So, I've got some serious rehab work to do and some rethinking of my routine so I can continue on without making myself a god damn cripple...
