The fuck do I do to recover? I've never had a lifting injury. I have been doing kettlebell swings and stretching but my back feels like ass.

      go to the doctor you cripple

      Lol Go to the doctor you enormous fucking retard. You've probably torn a muscle clean off the bone from the sound of it

      A. The doctor can't do anything except prescribe an opioid. He probably wouldn't even give me a steroid prescription, which would probably be the only thing that works.

      B. I only make like 80k a year, I'm not a millionaire. There's no reason for me to go to the doctor.

          It's not just the price. It's also that the doctor can't actually help me. Why would I waste money going to the doctor if they can't do anything for me?

            if you werent a retarded american you'd go to the doctor who would assess your situation and send you to a specialist or even a surgeon if necessary, and you'd be also provided with recovery therapy for your back, all while paying 0$

              I have an uncle who was dumb enough to get back surgery and he had like 10 of them and he can barely walk. Not going to a doctor.

              bro tell him you think you've torn a muscle. They'll check and if you did then he can schedule to have it reattached you dumb fuck

              Not trusting any doctor around my back. Even if I have a torn muscle I will find a way to get through with yoga or something.

                That's actually a possibility, I don't think I can do canada but I've got a cousin in Frankfurt who would probably let me stay with them.

                I mean getting an MRI just to diagnose might be helpful. But I mean if you prefer the alternative of crawling around then more power to you.

                This would be an ok option but I'm already walking again, just painfully. I just couldn't do that in America, getting locked in with the american healthcare system sucks.

                The doctor will not do anything. I had a shoulder injury when I was in college and the doctor couldn't do anything. I had to fix it myself and then my insurance refused to pay for the doctor's visits so I had to hire an attorney to get the insurance just to pay 2/3rds of what they owe. There's literally nothing a doctor can do except prescribe opioids and put you in debt. Self treatment is the only option.

          Just how it is. Last time I went to the doctor for a sports injury I had to hire an attorney to get my insurance to pay for everything, and even then they only agreed to pay like 2/3rds of what was owed. It's just ass to get involved with any medical stuff in the US.

              Well, since you refuse to go to a doctor, enjoy never lifting again.

              I will lift again, just need to take it slow and rehab. Plus, a doctor couldn't actually do anything.

    Have had this happen twice while squatting (but who knows yours could be more severe so best go to the dr to make sure) trying to do too much weight with poor form and weak abs most likely.
    Mine just recovered on its own with time. Dont do anything that aggravates your back at all for at least a month.

    Sounds like the exact thing I had happen to me. Basically it's a slipped disc. Not the entire disc, but the center core of the discs that are between your spine sections. For me I couldn't walk properly for weeks, eventually saw a physical therapist, which gave me some exercises, but other than that there wasn't much to do. It's been my week point in lifting eversince, and that was about 9 years ago.

      I'm almost 100 percent certain it's not a disc but a muscle sprain since the pain is in the lower left quadrant right where my lower back muscle is.

    You just described a herniated disc. Find someone to do dry needling and electrostim combo to deal with the symptoms and start healing.

      not any of these anons, but i've had some pain my low back ever since a bad deadlift about 2 months ago. doing this test it hurts like as soon as i start to lift my legs, but not really anywhere else. if it's muscular, does that really take that long to heal? it used to hurt way worse, but it's died down a lot just not enough that i'm comfortable doing squats or deadlifts yet.

        If its like any other area you can look at physical therapy excercises for it. They are never heavy enough to hurt you and are safe enough for old people so you can usually do them to help blood flow in the area etc. Just don't do them if they actually hurt ofc.
