I twisted my lower back/hip while curling. Has anyone else had an injury doing this? I'm wondering if it's muscular or structural. I'm able to walk normally with some added pain but it's quite sore when I'm getting up after sitting. My THR was in January 2017. I'm very active and I've never had any issues up until now! Any help would be appreciated.

Hello @Toeman18 - and :welome:

I'm sorry to read that you've hurt your back or hip.
The best advice i can give you is to get it checked out by your doctor.

It's unlikely that you will have caused any damage to the hip implant itself, as those things are very strong, but you may have pulled some muscles or tendons.

I've had back issues. For those problems, I've gone to a chiropractor and for acute problems, a physical medicine doctor. But a spine specialist can also diagnose you well. Don't worry, a spine surgeon won't try to talk you into surgery.

Usually when I've "thrown my back out" it was because I was doing some exercise that put my back in a new position--like I twisted my back, though I'm sure that's not technically what happened--and the pain went away in a few days. Like in a few days, I wasn't even thinking about my back after a few days. If the pain lingers more than a few days, then that's the cue, I think, to go visit a doctor.

Since you're athletic, I'd recommend a physical medicine doctor. They're the specialty that knows a lot about physical therapy. But they'll take the necessary X-rays or other tests. Ask for someone who treats spine and back patients.

You're certainly not alone in experiencing pain after exercising or weight lifting.
