Question: popping sound when lifting

 joeykinl - Tue Sep 23, 2008 2:35 am

I heard a popping sound when doing deadlifts tonight. I have pain at the top of my glute on left side. Hurts even when sitting. No numbness or pain in leg, yet. I have a slight case of scoliosis and believe my last lift was not perfect form. Please help. Thanks!

User avatar Hello -

While you may have injured something, with no symptoms other than the one-time popping, it could have been innocent. If you develop symptoms in addition to the noises, by all means consult with an orthopedist promptly.

In the meantime, please watch your form very carefully, as there is always the potential for self-injury, especially with scoliosis in the background.

I hope this is helpful. Best of luck to you.
