Back pain

Posted , 2 users are following.

*First, I apologise for my english, its not my main language.


I am suffering a back injury already 3 months.

The injury happend when i did pullups- for a period of 2 weeks i felt a slight pain that kept getting worse with time, untill the last time i did pullups (that was also the last time i was doing trained) the pain was very strong that i couldnt continue my workout.

( I am adding a picture of the painful area)

I visited an ortophedist, and he sent me to ultrasound and x-rays, and they were both negative. After that i went to a massage, that didnt help at all... After the massage i went to physiotherapy. It reduced the pain, but i still stayed with pain. The physiotherapist told me to go to Chinese acupuncture. After i did the acupuncture, the lady who did the acupuncture told me to wait 1 week and than check if the pain is gone. Today, 1 week passed, and i still suffer serious pain.

I feel the pain only when the muscle contracts- when i cough, sneeze, when i rotate my arm (at the end of the movement) and i feel the strongest pain when i do pullups.

Does someone know what is that injury, and what can i do to get rid of it?

I am really discouraged....

Thanks, and again sorry for my bad english.

    Stop pull ups. Pain will stay longer. You may have pulled muscles, takes time to get better. Go to Poundland buy Ibufren gel get friend to rub on. Take Ibufren tablets get them from Sainsburys, own make cheaprer.

    Not had for that long. Are you lifting at work? Sometimes we make movements that make it worse. Doctor will say take Ibufren tablets. Must take every day. If not better see him again. Good luck
