this raises an interesting question... the dangers of T-bar rows?
some of you guys make it sound like the devil...
ive recently started doing them (no belt)... about 120lbs not including the bar weight... im pretty sure im doing them right but is there anything one should watch for when doing these? I keep my back straight and about 45 degrees to the horizontal... lift it up with the legs etc, try not to swing the body ie keep the back steady

The popping sound and/or feeling are not a diagnostic tool for determining that he has a herniated disc.
That's like saying "my car wouldn't start today. What do you think is wrong?" Reply: isn't there a spark plug in there? That's what made my car not start. See how silly the herniated disc replies are? I'm not saying it's not a disc issue. I'm just saying there's lacking evidence to make that assumption in any of the OP's posts.

EDIT: I'm talking about the old school way of gripping the bar directly or using a double-d handle. It's better to do BB rows than use an actual t-bar IMO.

I had something similar happen 3 weeks back while i was deadlifting.. It was in my lower back, but off center, to my right side.. I could not sit, stand, bend, without ridiculous pain.
After about a week and a half went by with no improvement, i decided to give ART a try. After some examination, the Dr said i had(forgot the tech. jargon) something out of wack with my hip which was causing binding in my lower back. He released it, and i stood up, and the pain was literally GONE. I honestly could not believe it.
He wants to see me back 2 more times, and i should be good to go.. I have since done heavy rows, and deads with no pain.
Not saying this is your situation, but just letting you know that it may not be as bad as it seems.

Havnt checked this in a while but went to the chiro last monday. No disk problem, side spine xray looks perfect excellent disk space and proper curve. Back view shows curving with my scoliosis and is more exagrated, L4 seems to be where the issue is, muscles are pulling the spine to the left mild at S1, L3, T12, moderate at L1. Very high tension across the muscles in C7, T1&2 and C1 right side only. Dont know if any of that is helpful but he said that my hips were not level and the right hip was rotated up and back causing the misalignment, right leg 1/2 in short. I got an adjustment and I do feel better overall. Recommended 55 visits to fix me, I told him theres no way.

I hate to say this and will probably catch hell for it, but IMHO for the most part a chiropractor's goal is to get you to have treatment for th rest of your life/long term....a physical therapists on the other hand has to the goal to get you treated and back to you normal life asap. IHMO again, I would rather spend my money on a good physical therapists if you really need the care.
