At the gym today I was stupid and tried a new exercise. It was a hanging leg raise. I didnt raise I would need such upper body strength and with my weight supported by my bent forearms I lifted off the rests. My shoulders collapsed in together in crunching pain aling my spine. I have stayed active sll day, but am now relaxing and have pain all down the centre of my back especually between my shoulders. I slso feel tight in my chest and back. What is the potentusl damage I could have done to myself . I am on hols so no access to a doctor!

There are no medical professionals on this site, therefore, no one can provide you with any medical advice. It is even much more impossible to even begin to provide any type of potential diagnosis. That needs to be done by a medical doctor, but since you say you have none, then if the problem continues, go to an Emergency Room

  • Please try to take it easy on yourself until you can see a doctor. Have you had previous spine issues? Have you discussed exercises with a good Physical Therapist? Do not get down on yourself, thinking you have done a "stupid" thing. Many people exercise everyday, and some are unlucky enough to experience problems with exercises.
