Slipped A Disc While Weightlifting? Listen to Seth Myers

66 Minutes - Dec 20, 2017


I recently contacted the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) region director asking for an interview referral for the best person on this topic… her answer was Dr. Seth Myers.

I thought it was funny he was the top suggestion because he is also a chiropractor. I thought I was going to be given the contact of someone who only does coaching.

Dr. Myers didn’t disappoint. Trained under the ideals of Dr. Stuart McGill PhD, he gave some great pointers on how we can address and prevent lower back pain while squatting, deadlifting, snatching and more.

Here’s some topics we hit:

- Assessment

- Direction of tolerance or increase symptoms and what it means

- Disc and type of injuries

- Outcome Measures other than pain

- Butt Winking (Spinal Flexion)

- Intra-abdominal pressure

- Core work and why

- How to return to lifting

- Fear avoidance

Dr. Seth Myer’s Bio:

“My name is Seth Myers and I am a Sports Chiropractor practicing at JointFit Chiropractic and Sports Medicine Center in Manhattan,  KS. I practice with an emphasis in evidence-based medicine and focus on active care. The treatment I provide is focused on empowering the patient and helping them navigate through musculoskeletal issues that are slowing them down in life. I have a masters degree in sports medicine and a handful of other certifications in strength and conditioning (CSCS and USAW to name a few).

I have a love for sports, played football for 4 years in college and currently spend most of my spare time doing CrossFit and Olympic style weightlifting. I try to bring the knowledge and experience I have from years of lifting and working out with me in the clinic when treating patients and finding the best path for them on their road to a better lifestyle.”
