Back and leg pain : It's difficult to determine the true cause of your leg pain, but it can be associated with the back. Please have yourself evaluated by the spine docs at rothman / jefferson. They'll take good care of you and can determine the true cause. Hopefully stretching and pt will do the trick then!

Your low back pain into the legs could be caused by a herniated disc causing radiculopathy. Consult with a physiatrist (PM&R) for exam
