I have been an avid weightlifter for years. Recently my back has been cracking a lot and causing intense pain during my leg workouts. I cannot lift weights for more than 15 minutes and must stop because it gets sore. I am a certified personal trainer, so I understand the form and have tried everything. I have learned weightlifting and have been doing it for years, but I cannot find the cause.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I read your query and understand your concern.
In my opinion, that crack sound is due to excessive loading of facet joints leading to irritation and spasms around the muscle. Again, sometimes we might not control posture completely, so the loading of facet joints happens because of slight arching of the back. I recommend you do a lot of icing in the painful area to avoid pain and spasms, thereby getting on cracking sounds as well. I do understand that you know the form of the exercise you do. Stretch your low back. Flexibility is much needed to avoid loading and maintain proper joint mechanics.
Revert to me in case you need any further clarification in this regard.
