Re: Deadlift - sudden back pain/small pop

This happened to me once. If it happened to you at that weight, considering your max weight, It was probably just your back popping. Make sure next time you do some spine mobility movements before deadlifting. Of course there is going to be some tightness and soreness for a bit but that will go away just like nay other muscle soreness.

Re: Deadlift - sudden back pain/small pop

How did this turn out? I had almost the exact same experience yesterday. During a CFT I was going for a new PR on my deadlift, and when I got the bar just past my knees I felt a pop and a shift in my lower back, a little to the left of my spine. I stopped immediately and went home to lie down and ice. Today it feels somewhat better, but I'm walking slowly and not bending over at all. If it doesn't feel mostly better tomorrow, I'll go to the doctor. Did you go?

Re: Deadlift - sudden back pain/small pop

Dude, Hate to tell you but you most likely blew your disc. Doesnt mean you are screwed but face reality - when something pops and you can hear it (mostly in your head) you did something.

I can tell you one thing that I swear by is the DRX 9000. Google it and hope you got insurance. I went thru my Chiropractor and it took 4 weeks 5 days of week and its takes about 1 hour. The machine pulls your spine out like the machine Uncle Fester goes on in the Adams Family. I had severe back pain and it brought me back. My DL isnt back to where I want it to be but its going up everytime I train.

Some people get surgury or shots when they could have done the DRX 9000. Take my work and at least look it up.

Good luck.

I am telling from my experience and everyone is different.

Yeah, I'm considering that a blown disk is a possibility. I didn't hear a pop though, just felt it. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.
