Aslo, PT or physiotherapy will not really fix the problem, it will only allow your body to compensate for the problem,...

low back pain/frequency to urinate

A: Although I am not a physician,  I agree with the osteopath in his assessment of some pinched nerves in your lower back.  The nerves in the lower back contain those that involve the bladder and reproductive system.   I would recommend continuing with your colon cleansing routine although not as strident; try more of a maintenance approach.  I would also recommend a follow-up with the osteopath for further assessment and testing.  That may or may not include an MRI.  I believe that your osteopath will recommend some manipulation of your low back along with some physical therapy. Thank...

Why may an enlarged prostate cause low back pain ?

A: 1. kidneys or constipation can. 2. low back pain is a typical symptom of enlarged prostate . The prostate is a small gland approximately the size and shape of a walnut. It sits directly below the bladder, in front of the rectum. The prostate is a part of the male reproductive tract. It produces fluid that combines with sperm to make semen. The prostate surrounds the tube that carries urine from the bladder (urethra). During puberty, the prostate expands evenly.
