I injured my lower back a few years back deadlifting. Something just popped in my back, kinda like a cable breaking off a suspension bridge. Needless to say it was painful, I had trouble getting out of bed for week or so. But when I’m finally got myself up walking, I was ok.
So I stopped DL for a while. Introduce it back when i feel ok. But no more than 2 session or so, I would tweak it again. Never as bad as the first time, but it was bad enough for me to stop the workout early and have a tight back for the next day or so.
So this cycle of Deadlifting, tweak, stop for awhile then start again been going on for a few years now.
I was wondering if anybody have any advice for me. Should I see a professional? I haven’t, if so, what kind? Should I just simply stop DL’s? A particular set of exercises? Thanks in advance.
