Today, I seriously strained my back picking up my daughter. I’m only 22 and now I have a bad back a man in his 70s would be proud of. FML

I completely threw out my back at 22, the doctor had no idea how. It can happen at any age op, don't feel bad :) try picking your daughter up by bending your knees, not your back to support it and get well soon!

you realize you can throw your back out by just twisting right? no lifting is required.

I did this on Christmas Eve trying to Lift a massive dog kennel with my partner I fell to the ground in pain and couldn't get up, my partner had to call an ambulance It still hurts if I use it much like today when I was doing some gardening It will Often lock up and be quite stiff I over do it.

You are supposed to squat/bend your knees before picking her up.

I had to have back surgery at the ripe old age of 25 due to a severely herniated disk and sciatica. I’ve had herniated disks since 9th grade. It’s more common than you think.
