So I was working at home depot over the summer and wore a lifting belt pretty much my entire shift except lunch. Now i thought i had injured my back wresteling a co-worker on my last day, because I had hurt my upper back that day ripping my arms out of and arm lock. My question is, do you think that wearing a weightlifting belt for abour 4 months, at least 4 times a week could have weakened my lower back and abdominal muscles to the point where my lower back aches everyday now? I saw a specialist and they gace me some stretches, but this is going on 7 months now and the it aches all day long. So i mean its chronic pain now.
