Can I deadlift if I'm recovering from a paraspinal muscle sprain?

Hi @briantoh, yes you still physically can deadlift, but perhaps the real question is whether you should. If you are hoping for a recovery, and to be able to continue this hobby long term, then you most definitely should not. #doyouevenlift

I was hoping to strengthen my back to prevent injuries in the future and have been resting it for 2 months. I do still feel slight pain when I arch my back tho. Is it still not advisable to use some light weights to strengthen it?

Hi @briantoh, it would be best to see your GP to have an examination to make sure you are fit to return to activity before doing so. He may instead recommend a longer period of rest or physiotherapy to avoid aggravating the injury, depending on his findings.
