I tweaked my lower back and the pain is coming from to the left of my spine, right above my tailbone. It’s not muscular, it’s more like nerve-ish pain. Just got back from the chiropractor who confirmed my suspicions. He said it was my L5 S1. Took some x-rays, gave me some good stretches, did a great adjustment, and decompressed my spine a bit. I need to work on it myself from home.
It gets better as the day goes on, as I get warmed up, but he said it was inflamed and the compression of the weightlifting just isn’t helping it right now.
Which SUCKS because today (7/23) is Holleyman.. hands down, one of my favorite WODs of all time. Bummed that I have to miss it, but I will try and make it up on Sunday. I need to take it easy.
I suppose I could go to yoga, but.. meh.. I need to work on some stretches at home. See if I can get this improved. 🙂
