Been a lifter for a few years and only recently truly started powerlifting and was starting to think about my first meet. Ive been training with a little reservation due to an older lower back injury hat caused some discomfort whist deadlifting (could still go all out on squats and bench) and have been actively working with a physio to sort it out.
All has been going well until last week when an hour or so after a deadlifting session i had some serious pain and stiffness when getting up out of my seat at work. Fast forward one week and i have complete numbness in the lower legs along with ‘pins and needles’ and some back pain. I have seen a doc and am now waiting to get an mri to see the extent of the damage
The reason for this post is to see if anyone has come back from something like this? Although fairly new to the sport, ive become very passionate about it and really do not want to pack it in for good. Any advise would be appreciated.
For now i can just sit back and enjoy the ipf worlds on youtube.
