aoi p
Can you fracture your spine by lifting something?
i was moving things aroung until i hurted my back, now i couldnt even bend over or sit up, it feels like a sharp pain right in my spine in my lower back. You cant fracture youre back just by doing that right?

cutie pie!
its always posible that u cold have roken it but honestly i dont think thats what uve done. a disk may have slipped or u may have just pulled something

Mr. Knowitall
It is fairly unlikely that you broke your back lifting something, but you could have done a bunch of other damaging stuff.

You probably have some sort of soft tissue injury such as a muscle pull, herniated disc, bulged disc, etc.

Get off your feet and take some Naprox (Alleve). If your problem doesn't resolve in a few days then you should go have it checked.

You can find a spine specialist by searching on www.spine.org. Good luck.

Go to a doctor ASAP! You could have sustained a compression fracture in one of your vertebrae, herniated a disc, or a multitude of other things. Learn about proper body mechanics to prevent such injuries in the future and save your back:)

You can pretty well f*** if up, that's for sure.

yeah, but it depends ow heavy it is


There are stabalizing muscles that run the length of the spine. there are also ligaments holding the spine together. If the pain ran down the length of your leg or radiated away from the spine somehow, you may have herniated a disk. but since its only at the spine, my guess is sprained muscle.

You can herniate a disc, or crack a vertabrae, or cause a muscle spasm. Probably better get to a doctor. Sometimes it doesn't take much.

There's always a possibility that you can fracture a bone doing heavy work, esp. if you have weak bones (i.e. osteoporosis or osteopenia). But, more than likely you strained your muscles or injured a disc in your back.

I recommend Robin McKenzie's "Treat Your Own Back" book for more indepth answer to your question. You can get it at http://www.Amazon.com fairly cheap ($4.99-$10), esp. if you get a used copy.

Hope you feel better!
