    lower back pain from deadlift (pinched nerve?)

    hey all,

    4 months ago hurt my back bad on squat (bad form), gave it 6 weeks rest and now do proper form squats and deadlifts....

    however i do have a lingering lower back pain, the nerve that runs from lower back down right leg....

    what to do about it? ok to continue lifting with good form, just not heavy weight until it corrects itself?

    back day today and its bothering me more then usual but dont want to sacrifice deadlifts if i dont have to...

    its only aggravated by deadlifts, not by squats... anyone else have this problem/howd you resolve?

    TIA

    So you have pain in your lower back and radicular pain down your R leg? How far if it does. Above knee, below knee. Does the pain change with flexion, extension, sidebending, or quadrants (diagonal)? If so then there are specific exercises to try and centralize the pain and resorb a herniated nucleus pulposus. I posted something in another thread about the McKinzie exercise progressions which could benefit you If thats the issue going on. No worries if it is. They are common as dirt, a lot of us have them, and they respond pretty well to rehab.

    it goes down right leg above knee. its about centered, its almsot like its starting from tailbone and down.

    ever since my back injury my lower back seems to "slip out of place" when i lay on my side when sleeping. i have to "pivot my pelvis forward" to "snap" it back into place. (i crack my back/joints alot via twisting, etc. to adjust/alleviate back tension when things are "out of place")...and this is a new joint i now have to constantly "crack/pop" into place when laying on side...

    doctor is out of question for now. thanks for assistance thus far.

    the pain/nerve is internal enough, that applying pressure with hands doesnt affect it....during the day it is most aggravated when sitting in a 'lazy' posture (hips forward on seat, like reverse of rounding of back). doesnt hurt when standing or twisting, and no type of stretch seems to help it. it doesnt aggravate during lift...its a very passive nerve.

    Interesting. I would do a search on the abdominal drawing in manouver and a quadraped alternating arm and leg (bird dog). I swear I will do a write up one of these days. You sound like you may benefit from segmental stabilization via multifiti and transversus abdominus strengthening. I wonder if your segments are hypo or hyper mobile? Well look them up for now and see if it makes sense. If you cant find anything then ill explain when I have more time.

    Sounds like you have sciatica. Problem should go away in a few weeks. You might be able to do moderate weighted deadlifts, though until then. Just be careful on the negatives if you do negatives, to keep in control. And as far as stiff-legged or Romanian deadlifts, not possible yet am i right?

    i do all my DLs stiff legged. workout last night was good. sleep last night wasnt comfy due to the nerve, theres not any position that escapes it, its not pressure activated. this morning it was bothering me, but seems to have subsided for the most part as of now.

    also, the pain does go past knee, it starts lower back, down my ham, around right side of right knee, and down through my right side of calf.

    Now that the irritability has dropped a little, does it feel good if you lay on your stomach and extend a little? You have to maybe modify your deadlifts for a little. GMs have a little less weight and might not irritate you as much or even step back to back extensions without any weight. Flairing this up over and over is probably a bad idea. Do you do any sort of cardio like biking? Maybe give that a try. The gentile oscillations can really do your back some good. Did you look up the multifidi and TA exercises?

    i pinched my siatic nerve a month or so ago by squating i had the exact same problem except i gav it zero rest i just stoped squating for a while. I went to the chiroprator and he told me to do light lower back workouts and make sure ur posture is always even its hard to explain but makes plenty sence. Mine still lingers a little bit but by doing some light lower back extensions and light deadlifts i hav def noticed it had been gettting alot better
