Hi guys i injured the right side of my lower back last week while deadlifting. I didn’t really feel the injury during training, the symptoms only started to appear a few days after. I don’t really have problems with day to day tasks , only time i notice it is when i stand from bending down. I have a feeling this is just a muscle injury as i have had similar before on the other side of my back and with my upper back.
Previously i have just laid off training for a couple weeks and gone back to training with no problem, is this what is likely to happen again?
Do these frequent injuries to my back suggest other problems such as poor flexibility? and therefore should i seek to cure any possible underlying injuries first before going back to heavy squats and deads?
I have a feeling this injury resulted mainly from poor deadlift technique which i know i need to correct. Any advice/suggestions are welcome, and sorry if this is in the wrong place.
