Im 17 years old and have been lifting for about 3 years. In the past year ive suffered a few injuries, but the thing is they never seem to get better. Ive been reading articles about back and knee problems on this site and have been going to the doctor. With the next football season approaching i need to get better quick. so i figured id let you in on whats going on and maybe you could help me out a bit.
My Back - About 3 months ago i injured my back while squatting, it was nothing i noticed at the time but the next day it was really stiff and sore, I went to the doctor and he said it was a sprain. I went through 2 months of physical therapy and it seemed to be a little stiff but nothing major, just this nagging pain on the lower left side. I have a lifting comp. on May 6th so i was doing some squats last week. I had 365 on the bar and when i was in the hole all the pain suddenly shot right through my back and i could bairly move a few hours later. It just feels like this terrible pulling on lower left side of my back. I get a cat scan on monday and have a follow up next week.
My Knee - I had scope done last may, my knee seemed to get better but at the end of last season it started acting up again. It was this pain right in the back of my knee when i squat. I seen the doctor and got an MRI and after PT for PFS and other things that didnt work. The MRI shows that there is nothing wrong with my knee and he recently refered me to a new doc because he didnt know what was wrong.
Any ideas guys?
