Usually a back injury arises from too much weight or improper technique.
Types of injuries:
1 - If your back is “Aching”, then your muscles are damaged.
2- If you have sharp pains, most likely you have a displacement of the vertebrae.
If numbness of the extremities is still added to your symptoms, then you have a violation of the innervation of the lower extremities. This symptom is often characteristic in the presence of so-called intervertebral hernias, which, in turn, are a consequence of microcirculation disorders in the deep muscles of the spine. As you understand, to independently engage in diagnosis and treatment is fraught with consequences. Nevertheless, what can and should be done by yourself?
What to do if you ripped off your back
1 - First aid for a breakdown of the back is an ointment with an anesthetic effect. You need ointments with a cooling effect, and not with a warming one. Inflammatory processes occur in your back, ointments with a warming effect will only strengthen them. It is not necessary to do massage without special appointments, also the doctor should specialize in such injuries.
2 - It’s impossible to do without medical intervention ; specialists from vertebrologists or kinesitherapists will help you. Sometimes doctors without unnecessary trials say: "you should not deal with iron." In some cases, this is true, but in most, doctors want to protect themselves, so it’s easier for them to ban. Therefore, you need to consult a professional.
3 - Anesthetic exercises at home . These exercises are very effective.
- "Cat-dog" on all fours 20-30 reps.
- Twisting lying on the floor with legs bent. Try to elbows to reach knees on an exhalation (20-40 repetitions).
- After that, take a contrast shower, preferably a cold (very cold) shower for 5-10 seconds.
- After that, it will be much easier for you to make the complex for stretching in an arbitrary order for 10-15 minutes.
These exercises can be performed several times a day. The first times will most likely be painful, but by performing these exercises, recovery will be much faster if you just lay on the bed.
Swimming in the pool is also well restored, doctors often recommend it.
