I hurt my back actually more my butt but the sensation of pain comes from my lowerback, It happenned monday while doing front squats on my last rep, I then went on to do 5 very heavy sets of legpresses, hacksquats (not so heavy) and curls plus crunches, I had a slight pain while doing the crunches. At home when I went to bed I was bad but on my righthand side more to the buttock than my back, I then injected Voltaren in the right buttock, got up drank some water and went to sleep. The next morning my right leg was numb and I had a pinching in my lower back which was releaved after a visit to the physio but returns every mornig and now after 4 days I still cant manage to do a calve raise on my right foot I can move it nad even push a very light wheigt with my toes but my body wheigt I cant manage to keep raised. Please help me is this permanent, did I burst a cushion, or can the voltaren stil be relaxing the calve muscle after so long?

You need to get assessed quickly. Sounds like you are having some degree of irritation to your sciatic nerve in your leg which is possibly causing the loss of power in your muscles. The irritation can be due to a slipped disc in your lower back or it could be caused by the joints being stuck and causing muscle to spasm around the nerve.

See a doctor of chiropractic to find the source of the problem as they will check the nerve to see if it is functioning properly and where the source of the problem is. They can also treat you to stop that nerve from being irritated cos the longer you leave it the chance is you may cause a longer recovery period or possibly muscle power loss that is temporary or permanant so phone someone ASAP. Voltaren is just an anti inflammatory it can't take the main cause of the problem away.
