low back overuse injury

I have had low back issues for about ten years. One day went down for a squat and "twinge" and couldn't get up. Went away after a few days and for the next 8 and half years would come and go every 3- 6 months leaving me very limited in daily moving for a couple of days. Since I started Crossfit, this has happened only twice in the past 14 months. I know the reason is overuse usually following high volume weeks or two weeks of little rest and occasional double workout days. I thought until last May Crossfit solved the problem. It has improved the problem by strengthing and increasing flexibility in my core area. However, today during the 2nd round of 15-12-9-6 of DL, HPC, FS, and PJ's the "twinge" came back and left me unable to move for the first few minutes.

Any suggestions on eliminating this problem completely? Like I said, I create it when to a greater extent overtraining but do others have the same issue to the same extent? what do you guys and gals do?

Re: low back overuse injury

If it is disabling - see a doctor. Their job is to diagnose and help remedy medical issues. I personally don't seek medical advice from those not qualified to give it.
