Destroyed Back Doing Overhead Press

  1. Destroyed Back Doing Overhead Press


    So last night I was hitting shoulders. All was going well until I did my second exercise, the overhead press. I did 95lbs for like 8-10 reps, no problem. My second set I did 115lbs and during my 2nd rep I felt my back pop like 10 times all at once and it made a crackling/crunching sound. At first, it kind of felt relieving, so I thought I popped it. I finished my workout, lifting lighter as the pain gradually set on.
    Now it's the next day and my back/lower neck are in so much ****ing pain, it's almost unbearable.

    I'm going to the chiropractor tomorrow, but have any of y'all had this happen? Any advice about taking care of an injury while on cycle?


  2. Thatís nuts man. Iíve never heard of that happening to anyone. Were you doing behind the neck presses?

  7. Sounds like ya gave yaself a bad manip. Honestly expect tightness and pain for a bit. Itís your body trying to protect itself. Honestly an orthopedic specialist would be my recommendation but thereís a great chance you can ride it out and be fine.

    NSAIDs and Ice will be your savior.

  8. Wouldn't bother with a chiro mate most are just money grabbers. Some of those manipulations and cracking they do stop your injury healing so you think you need to keep going back to them as it never gets better. Trust me, I've spent a small fortune on them trying to sort out my SI joint pain. You're better going to a physical therapist.

    There are a lot of bad chiropractors out there and I spent years in pain being a skeptic, but there are also some great ones as well. A physical therapist is a great option too.

    2 weeks lying down on muscle relaxants then about 6 months slowly building weight back up before I had zero pain. In the beginning of training I experienced really sharp burning pain but found that pushing into this pain really facilitated the healing process.
