You have a good attitude about it, Goldie. I should have the same.
I went to a chiropractor today. I have never been to one before. It didn't hurt and it wasn't as woo as I thought it would be. The doctor also is a competitive powerlifter and owns a gym so I figured if anyone would understand or have insight into what I did to myself and how I can undo it it would be him. He told me that I probably let the weight get out in front of myself and strained the ligaments in my lower back. Also I have weak glutes and really tight hamstrings. He gave me some stretching exercises to do and told me to use a foam roller. He said he could also look at my lifting form and help me with that, but I shouldn't lift for at least a week, except upper body is okay.
