I'm not sure what is causing my back pain. The pain is located in a very specific spot, on my spine and on both sides about in the middle of my back between my shoulder blades. I went to the doctor about a week ago and got an x-ray, the xray didnt show any signs of spinal damage but it did reveal I have slight scoliosis. I've been avoiding exercise and working out for almost 2 weeks for my back to heal and according to the doctor I should lay off of working out for another month. I'm not sure what kind of pain i'm experiencing or the cause. This is what I think caused it:
About 2 months ago I was at a wrestling match and before I went in to wrestle, I did a stretch where you get in a push-up position, then put pressure on your head and push forward in an effort to stretch out my neck. I then repeated this reverse, where you do a back bridge and press on your neck the opposite way to loosen the muscles. Then in my match, I was put into a position where I had to squirm and try to break free out of a lock the other person had me in. My back did not hurt during, or after the match until I got home that night. All of a sudden I felt a fixated pressure pain in the spot that hurts.
I ignored it and have been working out for the past 2 months because it causes me no pain unless I do pull ups or dips. I was even doing clean and jerks and most of the time felt no pain doing them, until I'd get home later that day and might experience some discomfort. Overall the pain is not severe but really annoying and I want it to heal so I can wrestle 100%.
Do you guys have any idea what kind of pain this is? Is it muscular? How long do you think it will take to heal?
Any feedback is appreciated THANKS
