Botched my RFA procedure

Patient : I had radiofrequencY ablasion 3 months ago due to a bulging disc and possible athrities causing pain. Actually I was performing a deadlift and heard a pop and that was when the pain began. During this past 3 months I have been pain free. Then I did a high intrnse workout and my back hurts again in the exact same spot. Is it possible that I botched the good results somehow or is it simply a coincidence and the pain would have come back this soon anyway.
Symptoms:  lower left back pain
