Q. What is the quick remedy for back pain due to deadlifts and squats?

Hello doctor,

I am a 19-year-old male. Three weeks ago, I did deadlifts and squats on the same day. I have been training for two years, and I never faced any lower back issues. I experienced pain and soreness in my lower back about two days and a week goes I thought it was a little pain, and I did deadlifts again this time the pain was so bad that till date I could not bend my back like I used to do.

It was slowly recovering, and I did not go to the gym for four days, and then I started using machines for three days from now. Today I did my leg workout and thought leg press would not aggravate my pain, but it did, so bad. What should I do now should? I quit the gym for a while or avoid some movements? Is there any quick home cure for the pain?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It sounds more of the lower back ligament sprain. You may have injured the back. The first thing to do is to look for an MRI, like any soft tissue Injury if not focused, then might become chronic. I will advise you to do some exercises for strengthening the paraspinal muscle's. Once you learn the correct pattern of the exercises I am talking about then before every workout regimen, you need to do that, and then your back pain would not come up. For now, give rest of three weeks, and then I can teach you proper exercises which will help avoid future back pains.
