Hello people. My back has been in some pain since the end of last year. Anytime I twist to a direction, I feel a sharp pain and I hear a crick sound as if bones are snapping in. Even when I inhale I start feeling the pain in my back and hearing that crick sound sometimes. I tried feeling with with my hands and I see that it is near the spine the pain is from. Not the spine itself but near. Sadly, due to this I haven't been able to exercise since the time I had it so I've lost most my muscles and I'm out of shape now. But I want to get back in shape. What is the best advice. And it is possible that it may have been cause by heavy lifting.

Please and thank you.

The best amd only advice for such long term and chronic back pain is too get medical diagnosis and treatment. If it were a small problem, it would have gone away by now, but here you are nearly 5 months on, still with pain during normal day to day movement.
It sounds like it may be a herniated disk, but this will need scans and medical skill to confirm, and from there a specific medical treatment plan.

Chropractor would not be a best 1st choice, you need proper medical help.
I appreciate money can be an issue, but this is your spine we are talking about. If that is not addressed as a priority, then the consequences could be life changing.

Thank you Cord. But now I'm worried if I'll ever be able to exercise again. I'm only 17

I'll second Cord, if only from experience. Having had several tpyes of back problems, I can attest that it isn't something to 'just wait and see'.

I gave up TKD because the specialist (who does TKD too) actually pointed out that the spinning wasn't good for my neck (where the trapped nerves are). A couple of years down the line, I got slack on watching my posture, working on computer etc... I'm now back at the specialist with pins and needles down my face and left side (two trapped nerves this time!).

You always want to go see a doctor when you have a serious acute injury.

After they help you and they give you a diagnosis you can then see what other therapies can help you out.

acupuncture can help with the pain and help aid in healing. But if you are serious injured you need to have diagnostics tests done to see what is actually wrong with you.

Dont be silly!! smile This will not be your last injury in an active life, and it may not be your worst!! All you need to do is find out what the problem is, have it treated, and heal. Its that simple, but you cannot treat or heal anything till you know what's wrong.

At 17, you will bounce back quickly, providing you dont keep ignoring it until it becomes something more than it is at the moment.

Yep, seconding Cord again. get it fixed, do what the doc say and you'll probably never even realise you had a problem.

Your biggest danger at 17 is thinking you're indestructible and trying to train through an injury.

I remember a young lad I met in a TKD club who admitted to having a leg injury but still did high kicks, hard training etc. I told him he was crazy doing that with such an injury. He said, "yeah, but that's what MA is all about, training through it and ignoring the pain!"

I replied it was more like being able to still be able to use your legs when you were 30. No good training through if you can't actually do the technique later on.
