I think I have one... in the L5-S1 area. I am seeing a chiro on Saturday so I'll see what he says, but until then, I'd just like to see if anyone has any input
Symptoms: Pain in the L5-S1 area of the low back right on the posterior aspect of the spine. It is localized pain, and does not run down to my legs or anything. It feels exactly how a slipped disc would feel like, and I feel pain all the time right now... walking, sitting, and especially twisting/flexing/extending. It is a bit unbearable at times to be honest.
How it happened: Deadlifted on Tuesday, and I felt my lower back round a little bit on the last rep (was not wearing a belt). However, I felt no immediate pain or discomfort. Then yesterday night, I slightly twisted my back while standing to crack it, like I always do, and I felt a little discomfort, but still, nothing serious. I'm assuming whatever I aggravated on the deadlift, I made worse by twisting my back. Anyways, the rest of the night and today I felt it a little bit, but I tested out lifting. I did some moderately heavy snatches and felt some discomfort but nothing painful, per se. Then, I did one power clean with 60kg, and boom, all hell broke lose. I felt like shooting everyone in the gym because of the pain. I immediately tried a McKenzie extension thing, and that made it worse, so I just quit and went home, and here I am, in pain.
Treatment: Right now I'm just icing 20 mins every 1-2 hours, and taking Ibuprofen.
Thx in advance.
P.S. Next time I'm doing snatch DL or clean DL, I will be wearing a f***ing belt.
