OldDog This is actually the 2nd time I've injured my low back. The first was about 6 years ago and I woke up with numb legs and shooting pain for a couple months. It was horrible. This time around I'm already much improved. I'm staying mobile, but not pushing it at all. Still taking naproxen and alternating heat and ice. I also stretch often. I can still do forward bends and I'm back to palms flat on the floor with knees locked out as of yesterday (the flexibility is a holdover from the martial arts days). I haven't had any weakness or that "buckling" feeling for a few days and it doesn't spasm when I "move wrong". Overall I'm confident heading in to opening day on the 23rd.

Thanks for the reply..

PS: Fuck crossfit!

Back on July 21st I was doing a car show gig setting up a stage. I pulled my lower back out (my right side) as I was simply bending over to pickup a wooden barricade bar. Now I have done this before in the past a few times in my life and what happens next is worse than the back pain itself.

5 days after I pulled my back I went to work as a stage manager for Harborfest which is a 5 day summer party with a ton of bands. Trust me in the music industry the work "manager" is nothing, we all bust our asses non stop. At that point my back was sore but I made it thru those 5 days...but then...ohhh then..

Once I got back home what happens is the lower back muscle swells and the sciatica nerve flares up which causes extreme pain down the entire right leg. It is non stop pain which includes pulsing numbness in the leg and it truly feels like you have a coat hanger going up inside your leg from your toes to your hip. The only thing that stopped the pain was to simply lay down on the couch. At that point I felt great but as soon as I stand up its like stepping into a sword and pushing it all the way up to the hip. All on just the side I pulled my back.

During the month of August I basically laid on the couch and got up barely able to make it to the bathroom. I would have to literally get back on the couch or a floor or a bench and it would go away almost instantly...But again I stand up....I wouldnt wish that pain on my worst enemy...The pain was so bad no pain killers help. Oxy, hydro, morphine, nothing! Ohhh it helped a little..but you could still feel that coat hanger inside....I couldnt and didnt want to do anything! the pain was so constant thats all that controlled me. September wasnt much better, by October I was really wondering if it would ever go away.

The meds I took that helped were inflammatory stuff. Nexproxin (aleve) and ecto"something".

Yesterday (a good three months later) was the first day I could say im at 100%. I dont need the meds but I still take them until I am out. no more pain the swelling is down but I am still careful.

What you really need is rest and lots of it. If your into the chiropractor expect some repeat visits. Physical therapy can help but in some cases the pain is worse depending on the individual.

Good luck! I feel bad for you. I know the pain..

SHREDDER97 Surferbum- Your assumption that cross fitters are healthier then powerlifters is bullshit. Yea, there are a lot of lazy fat powerlifter but some do pay attention to conditioning and are very healthy.

Another thing the makes you sound like an idiot is saying you stopped lifting "heavy". There is not such thing as fucking heavy. If your body has fully adapted to the weight and you are using proper form then there is no difference in squatting 135 or 315 safety wise.

Now my person opinion is that a lot of people quit lifting "heavy" cause its fucking hard. It a bitch to learn proper technique on some of the more complicated lifts. Doing squats and deadlifts are hard, and a lot of people just don't have the mind for it. Crossfit is just an easier thing for them. Building a cardiovascular base is much easier then building strength imo.

Now? I just watch those weirdos flip tires over while wearing knee socks. Knee socks and 'barefoot' shoes. I mean seriously wtf is that shit about? oh then they come inside the coffee shop and brag about how hard their 15 minute workout was. I like how they call it a WAD. I have to stop now, I could go off on those people all day...

p.s Im glad I clicked on this thread. The title looked interesting and hey making fun of crossfitters is always good ;-)
Anyone else picturing douchebags doing crossfit while wearing kneesocks, toe shoes, and spirithoods?

Seriously? I hope you choke to death trying to suck your own cock while simultaneously patting yourself on the back.

I've been lifting for 15 years, I've trained with professional fighters, I ride my MTB, I dragonboat, and now snowboarding. I've had more injuries than I can count. But that's the difference between a "go big or go home" mentality and the "look at me, I do crossfit" mentality.

How about you go "care less" on somebody else's thread?...

wow man take a chill pill. my only post on here was this is exactly why i stopped lifting heavy and do crossfit type stuff. You came back and called me a pussy. not one time in my responses have i attacked you but in all of my responses i've stated my view on working out in response to you calling me a pussy and that a powerlifter can lift oh so much more than a crossfit buddy. so from your last response of telling me to suck my own cock i'm betting you are a tapout meathead. Never sat here and said how awesome i am just responded to you calling me a pussy etc. just from my experience of lifting heavy in the past vs. crossfit type workouts now i have never been healthier. and if your as intelligent as you seem to be on working out for 15 years with professional trainers you wouldn't have gone on to do deadlifts after pulling a muscle. so yah you do have a "go big or go home" attitude. you went big and now your home hoping you didn't mess up your season. not once did i attack you as you have me.

wish you a speedy recovery so you do get to enjoy the mountain this year. i'm unsubscribing from this shitty thread. I'm outy 5000....
