Which back muscle? theres a few *text deleted* (traps, rhomboids, lats, erector spinae...). Best bet is to rest it, let it get better. And its probably just pulled, not torn. Get someone to massage some deep heat onto it. If its really bad go docs.
I tore a back muscle when i was 9, trust me you would know if it was torn hurts like a bitch and you cant move hardly without mass amounts of pain. You've probably just pulled it but go see the doc they will sort you out with some good pain killers and probably lots of rest. Possibly physio as well.
Weyhey (not to be rude) someone with the same problem as me.
I just started my circuit training tonight.. got through the first set, up to the box jumps i was fine then on the 3rd jump OUCH what the *text deleted* was that.. tried another oooh now thats starting to hurt more.. now i'm cowering down, then lying flat on the floor. Go see a doc mate thats what i'm doing first thing in the morning... well first thing i'm phoning work, but then going to the docs.
i dont want to see a doc because if and when i have my medical it will be on my record (back problem!) and i dont want that to happem.
your right i probebly have pulled it and its right next to my spine , its every time i lift something it kills
Torn muscles hurt like a mother..! probably just pulled it, bit of rest should sort it out, if it persists however then see a doctor.
I tore my shoulder muscle falling off my bike, drunk, wet floor, cycling too fast..i almost cried..but not quite :p, it actually hurt more than when i broke my collar bone (another cycling accident), the doctor thought the torn muscle was actually a dislocation or possibly broken bone at first. Also got taken to hospital for a torn forearm muscle, at the time it looked like i had broken my arm with the swelling, was at a skatepark so they called the ambulance, just *text deleted* it was quicker than waiting for a lift to the hospital.
But hope your alright, just take it easy and don't utilise the muscle until its fully repaired, or do anything which might hurt it further.
went to the docs today and all he said was it was probably pulled, didn't even put it down on my record. Didn't even give me any pain killers either, just said rest it for 1-2 weeks (easy for him to say, i *text deleted* pay the bills).
1 - 2 weeks rest? ugh thats sh*t ive rested for like 3 days now like and it is getting better. i can also keep my running up aswell wich isnt so bad and ive still been doing sit ups so its not that bad, ill giv it a few more days an see how it feels. the only time it hurts is when i pick something up or lift weights.
My mums a nurse and is bringing home some tablets for me and stuff, i just hope it gets better thanks lads :shakehands:
yeah i know 1-2 weeks *text deleted*! *text deleted* its feeling better already, but i am taking creatin and protein which aids in muscle recovery and i've always got better quickly from other sprains/pulls. hopefully by next week i'll be training again, but lightly at first. hope yours gets better too lukeboy!
do you or anybody know if you can still do situps without it getting worse? i have been doing them and my back isnt hurting when i do them or after but you bend your back whilst doing them so i was just wondering if this would be a problem? please reply
*text deleted* mate i wouldn't training at all with an injury due to risk of it getting worse and therefore being out of training for longer. But if you've tried situps and it doesn't hurt then why not carry on, after all its your back mate you choose.:dontaskme:
