@Levelheaded.... Thanks for the answer. Yeah I wasn't completely satisfied with my doctor's opinion.
Ok, what happened was, I was doing Deadlifts in september, the next day my back was in complete pain, I couldn't move it well. The pain lasted a few days and then it lead to just being sore for a further week. During the time of pain, I went to the doctors(in september) and he wasn't concerned at all, he just said you strained your back. Rest, and all will be well. Thats all the advice I got.
So, i decided to be smart and not doing any workout for a couple of months. A couple of months turned into 6months. So, I rejoined my gym lastweek, I did some light cardio(20mins on the cross trainer), just to ease my way back into training. The next day i noticed that my back had a slight ache... It's been here for a week now, and feels slightly weaker, i notice it even when I was walking to work today. There is no pain, it didn't hurt, just a very mild ache on the same spot's where I hurt in back in september. I went to the doctor's again today cos I was concerned that a very light cardio workout gave me a mild ache on my back for a week.
He told me it was my spinal erector(the muscle that runs along either side of the spine) that was aching and that its due to a weak back.
The pain that I got in sept' and the mild ache i'm getting now is on my lower back, and mid back.
He said there was nothing wrong with my spine and that the problem is muscular.
I Hear ya... push ups, body weight squats, lunges, pull ups are what I want to get back doing.
My training routine was 5 days workout, 1x arms & shoulders, 1x push ups/pull ups day, 3 times cardio(it could be anything from HIIT sprints, rowing machine, plyometrics). I also did alot of abs workout.
The day I injured my back was when I was doing deadlifts, it was the first timme I have ever tried it.
So, if the issue is muscular, you recommend still working out?
