Pulled lower back

Recommended Posts

I've had a few injuries over my lifting years, pain just before elbow, shoulder used to cripple me and a pain in my right knee, knee pain has eased and other two have gone completely. This may sound odd but both went and knee eased after running a few cycles.

 

Anyway onto my back, its f**ked, I did it about 12 months ago doing standing t bar rows. Basically now I cant do them, I don't do bent over rows and if I squat its very light. I've had it go 4 times now since. This weeks is went just bending over building a shed. 

 

I always warm up and stretch before lifting, I've even started doing light rack pulls to help strengthen it. 

Now I'm my madness I'm thinking how my other injuries improved after using steriods, would my back do the same? 

 

I'm at my whits end, any advice would be great. 

 

Thanks phil.

I would see at very least a physio first, to find out what it is mate. Once you know you could work on strengthening the area or finding ways to work around it.

I have worn discs, bulges, etc. I wear one of these at work and sometimes at the gym.

If you go for this option, you will need to work your core in a controlled manner in order to keep it strong. 

I sometimes wear one of these for work, very good when pulled nice and tight.

I’m really surprised at how good it is. Bit of deep heat and this, pain free all day. My only concern is weakening my core from over use :huh:
