It’s been about a month now, suspect I strained my erector spinae to the right of my spine doing deadlifts. Felt it right away, but stupidly tried to finish the set. Next morning could barely bend over to put my socks on and had to get someone to help me get out of my car when I got to work. It got better after a few days and wasn’t really bothering me too much.
Stupidly (I’m not very bright sometimes) I tried to do squats the next week and felt the pain in my lower back after a few light reps. Since then I’ve stopped squats and deadlifts but continue to workout as I normally would. Nothing I do really aggravates the pain unless I try to lift something up bent over. I can bend over without pain, but if I lift anything over 30lbs bent over, it hurts. That pain has been pretty consistent and doesn’t seem to be getting any better.
Any tips on what I can do?
