I have back pain everytime I do squats. Why?

Activity modificatio: While the symptoms are going on, hold off from doing these lungs/squats till pain resolve. Take some nsaids (if you have no medical contraindications). You likely overexerted yourself, and sustained some lumbar sprain/strain. If things don't start feeling better, seek help from your doctor. Starting physical therapy will be helpful if the symptoms continues beyond a couple of weeks. ...Read more

Post squats lower back pain. Unable to stand or walk for15 mins. Now okay but tightness in lower back.Happened for the first time,no heavy weights.

Low back pain: The low back pain is likely muscular in origin. Stop the squat exercise until the pain resolves. Use a weight lifting belt and have a trainer evaluate you for proper squat technique. If the pain persists then see a neurosurgeon to ensure that there is not a fracture of the pars interarticularis or a herniated disc in the low back. ...Read more

Recommend MRI: It sounds like you may have a herniated disc which is pinching nerves. If you have had physical therapy and you are no better, then i would recommend lumbar MRI for further evaluation. Further treatment options include spinal injections and surgery. ...Read more
