Hey guys i have had some issues with lower back ever since some deadlift injury a few years back i have came to the conclusion i cannot load the spine and am now getting a xray to see if my friend who is a veteran chiropractor can help me...

Has anyone recovered from any back injuries or serious back injuires to where they can now squat and or deadlift again?

Mine was going great and was doing front squats but then was a little fatigued today and lost a rep and while going forward i guess it strained my weak part of the back... Im very sad right now

plz tell me something good

I tore muscles in my back many years ago (probably 30 yrs to be exact) doing the same thing.It was when I was in the Marine Corps.I was sent to a MRP to begin my therapy.I couldnt even stand up for a few days on my own.I did the ice pack and heat and massage in the beginning and once I was able to stand up my therapy was just sitting straight up for small periods of time and then standing and then leaning over.

Once I could do this,I started leaning over with a very light weight and slowly increased the weight.Next was good mornings and then hyper's.Then bent over rows,etc.

After about 6 months of doing this and lots of hottub soaking I was able to starting training normally again and just kept increasing the weight from there.

I have been fine since then and learned immediately just how precious good health is and from that point forward used my biggest muscle,MY BRAIN, in everything I do.

It can be done brother.The key is to take it SLOWLY and dont get over anxious and start trying to lift heavy too soon.It gets frustrating but its the only way to do it safely and stay injury free for the future.Even to this day,I can sometimes feel tight in that area and some discomfort but have never let up on properly stretching and warming my muscles up before lifting heavy.

Good luck brother.Stay positive.

Delta,any progress with your back? Did you get the xray and results back yet?

Maybe your sacroiliac joint is separated? That's why a large number of individuals have lower back pain. Not to mention your hips may be out as well.

Man I've been through a similar problem but a tad worse. For me squats and deads are out but I'm not sure how bad your situation is. Go in for an MRI as the Xray will tell you very little. My xrays didn't show the two ruptured disc and one bulging in my lower back. If you got a bulge then there is definitely hope especially if you're younger. If you have a complete rupture just lay off the heavy squats and be careful before it's too late! Trust me on this one.
