low back pain

I have been injured now for 2 months and finally the physiotherapist was able to get a vertebrae moving that was "stuck".
I am presently on 750 omna ew and 250 test depot. I have 200 d-bol that I am about to start ( i waited until my liver levels are down ) My question is what else can cause pain in the back as I have not put a ton of water on so far and I am quite lean presently

    What else? 90%+ of all low back pain is related to issues with a disc. Most people over 20 and perhaps 3/4 of people over 30 have identifiable bulging in one or more discs.

    I am very aware of disc disease as I have had spinal fusion in my neck from a vehicular accident. So far the discs in my lower back were fairly good as viewed by a mri ( I have had many spinal scans due to the surgeries I have had). This current problem is due partially due to a misalligned vertibrae impinging on a nerve

    It sounds like you know what's causing the pain...impinged nerve. Or is this pain somewhere different? Perhaps you have seen an unexplained change or worsening in the pain since your cycle started? Could be a fluke, could be the muscle hypertrophy exacerbating the impingement.
    In my case, my bulging discs have been greatly improved (well the symptoms anyway) since adding heavy squats and deadlifts back in to my routine a year or more ago. The increased size/strength in the low-back helps to support and girdle the area.
    Just be careful because discs don't heal. So you have a misaligned vertebra? Says who? A real doctor or a chiropractor?

    the physiotherapist who finally found the vertibrae out is one of the best in Canada, I trust his opinion and respect him.
    my question is related to what other things contribute to back pain? I have done a ton of abs and I was squatting prior to the injury but I had lightened my workouts as I felt I needed some time to recover

    Well, the vertebra out of alignment may not be an issue because it could be that it's always been that way and your body has adapted.
    Can you pinpoint a certain activity that began the pain?

    Hey dude, sorry to hear about your low back pain. However, this is something that I know abit about. As some of the guys mentioned pain could come from your vertebrae which could have been stuck. The problem with pain or symptoms are that they are the first thing you notice, but it might not come directely related to when you got your vertebrae stuck. And then again symptoms (pain) can be the last thing to go away after your vertebrae has been freed.
    The proposed mechanism to this from leading neurologists is that you get a irritation (local infection) around a nerve bed which causes both an indirectely and a directly pressure on the nerve or nerves in the area. This is very much like an local absess around your nerve. It is caused by friction/lack of motion, - it stayes more or less untill the problem is solved, then your body starts to deal with the "infected" area and the swelling, -it goes down and hence relief of pain. This process can take weeks.
    Another issue with this is that if you go to long before you get your back sorted, the pressure on the nerve will hinder normal action potentials to travel up and down your nerves, this can on long term lead to either a (semi) permanent damaged nerve with reduced functionality or you can get a hyper active ganglion which sends pain signal all the time day and night. (may be treated with amitryptiline or codeine)
    Then keep in mind that there are atleast 20 odd things which also can cause low back pain. This can be simply thight muscles (yes seriously), other is problems with internal organs that might send distress signal which is also perceived as back pain. The resoning behind this is rather complex so we can save that for later.. Anyway, if you are in doubt go see your GP get an X-ray taken (MRi is better for checking disc's) and get your kidneys and gall bladder checked out.
    Last advice, go spend some money on some proper massage, trust me it will make you feel like a new man afterwards.
    Best of luck to you mate and I hope this helps abit.

    Who is the greater fool - the fool himself, or the fool following him?
