I'm a data scientist at Highmark, Inc, working as the manager of predictive analystics and data management within Operations. I earned my PhD doing computational neuroscience, working with decision making processes and investigating functional connectivity between different parts of the human brain. I've also worked as a financial quant, freelance web developer, and IT consultant. One of my favorite pastimes is poi spinning.

Thanks. I'm thinking that if I want to do a proper squat I'm just gonna have to get the barbell... this doesn't engage the back and core the same way as a standard squat.

I would suggest seeing a doctor about this, as it's a possibly serious enough problem that a forum answer should not be the definitive solution.
