long story short failed a squat and my lower back rounded bad i guess as i was trying to set it on a safety catch i made
kindof felt a crackly-pop (makes it sound worse than it is) and couldn't lift anything off the floor without pain or move in certain ways (tie shoes especially)
rested for 10 days and made great improvements and tryed to squat, went up to 175x2 and it was too painful so i stopped before i reinjured myself. about 7 days earlier i squatted 45 (yes 45) for 5 with about the same pain, maybe slightly less.
i've been to the docs i think 2 days after it happened and he just said rest/icyhot and he gave me muscle relaxers but i stopped taking them after two days or so (i think they are just if i can't bear it)
i don't feel pain when i move anymore and my last warmup of 155x1 yesterday was not really painful at all, just slightly uncomfortable kinda an achy feeling.
yeah so anyone have an idea what it could be? is it more serious than i think? squatting to depth is the main problem, i'm going to try again in 6 days on sunday with 175 hopefully no pain or very little. i'm going to try to DL in three, thursday.
very anxious to get back at it, i can't do half of what i love to and normally do..lift.
Just made this thread in the injury recovery and prevention section but had no replies so hopefully here.
all input is appreciated thanks!!
