I got whiplash 10 months ago. At the time I underestimated the severity of the injury and gave it very little rest. 1.5 months after the injury I got back into heavy weight lifting, despite the fact it was irritating my spine. I have had severe muscle spasms for 8 months which only now have released almost completely at times. x rays came back ok. But now my spine is making these terrible grinding noises which are most pronounced when my muscles arent spasming. What would this indicate? My physiotherapist said it was just air moving around, but im concerned it might be a ligament issue?? The grinding is painless. But it is really concerning me.
-severe muscle spasms in thoratic spine area
-didnt give injury any rest time
-spine making alot of grinding noises
