View Full Version : cervical pain from oly lifts
06-11-2009, 10:31 AM
has anyone else ever injured their cervical spine when oly lifting (neck hyperextension). It has been a nagging injury that began when I was learning the lifts and hyperextending my neck. It doesn't seem to be going away. I am going to get it checked out but wanted opinions from past experience.

Bony injury or just like muscular tightness/dysfunction?
yeah not supposed to hyperextend neck during any lifts
Should probably get it checked anyway...
