I was brushing my tongue yesterday, and I gagged too hard. Because once I did, I felt my back crack a little, and I do not know if the wrong bone had cracked or if it cracked too hard. But now I am having lower back pains, and it is very uncomfortable. It feels like I am straining my back a lot. It just hurts when I move.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
In my opinion, you had a joint crack, and that should not be a problem. But in the process, you strained or pulled a muscle that is be the source of your problem. Nothing to worry about.
As of now, I recommend you to lie on your stomach and do some cobra stretching. Take a deep breathing and relax while doing cobra stretching. Stretch your glutes in a standing position and hold it for 30 seconds and repeat it three times. Both sides to be done. Stretch your obliques and low back very gently and hold for 10 seconds.
These things should help you regain mobility and help you walk pain-free with the above-mentioned stretches.
I recommend you to drink a lot of fluids to help recover the muscles. Keep icing to help smoothen the irritated muscles and help in reducing the stiffness and spasm associated with the sudden movement.
I hope this helps.
