Hello all, I've come for some outside opinions on my lower back pain. I'm a strength athlete and often do heavy squats and deadlifts. I am usually pain free but I have a recurring problem, please help me diagnos this!!!
Occasionally after a session my back will tighten up. I find it accutely painful to bend over, put on shoes, sit in unsupportive chairs, etc. HOWEVER twice I have found COMPLETE and total relief by accidentally doing an excersize that presses my knees towards my chest. In this position I have experienced a rather sudden POP which is starteling and almost alarming. I will stand up to find I have zero ZERO back pain. I can touch my toes, twist, etc.
What is my problem and why does this reoccur? Is that a sign that I am slipping a disc out of place and it is "popping" back into place? I am lost!
