Injured Mid/Low Back on Cleans

Hey Lance,

I was cleaning and feeling good, so after 135x3, 155x3, I went for 165x3, but as I lifted the bar off the ground druing the first rep, something went wrong on my back and I dropped the bar. Feeling like I was being a pussy, I tried repping 135 at lest, failed twice due to unstable feelings in my back.

Three days later, it's still pretty painful...sharp shooting pain all over back, like a grid - happens is certain positions, such as twisting back, bending down, etc. I would guess a strained muscle, but after initial pain, returning and staying at a normal position hurts a lot as well. All pains are SHARP, make me suck in breath and flex core.

Location is mid back, rightish side, next to spine. It isn't a bone for sure, and from what I've been reading, sound a lot like a herniated disk. Hurts like a B*TCH when sneezing, and walking downstairs.

Whats your diagnosis/treatment?

Thanks man, appreciate it.

GO SEE A FUCKING DOCTOR.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

How does it feel now?  When you feel the pain, is it only in the one specific spot or does it radiate up and down your back?
Relax.

Much much better, I'm glad I didn't panic...this thing happened to me about two years ago as well, I landed awkwardly on a reverse layup and my upper back "hit" my lower back. Now, the threshold for the spike of pain is way higher then before. I can jump lightly and jog without aggravating it. I have not lifted whatsoever since the day I had injured it, since I remember when this happened last time I kept re-aggravating it and the only way it went away was after two weeks continuous rest.

The pain is like a bullet to a glass wall, its like shattering - most pain is in the generic area, but it definitely felt like a network of pain (maybe nerves?) all across my right back. Absolutely no pain on left side, ever.

I plan to play light basketball at max, not going to lift until July 1st....well I dunno, I'm itching to at least do some horizontal upperbody lifts where back is supported lol.
