Re: Reoccurring Lower Back Injury - Need help

Check out this site: http://www.fixyourownback.com/

You have clear discogenic issues. McKenzie, as already mentioned, would be extremely helpful, too.

Re: What could make my upper and lower legs become misaligned?

Have you had any good muscle work performed on your quads? Trigger points can be notorious for mimicking other problems. Sounds simplistic, perhaps, but I have seen people finally get out of pain...

Re: What could make my upper and lower legs become misaligned?

And what exactly is your issue as it relates to the femoral position?

EDA: I did a search. Sounds frustrating.

Re: Chiropractic/Nervous System Dysfunction

Not to get off the topic, but I have to ask you Josh, what holds bone together? And if not for the muscles that the nervous system innervates and the dysfunction they create across joints, we would...

Re: Chiropractic/Nervous System Dysfunction

I don't have the time to say what I really want to. But I will say this. Go see someone else. What that chiro did was a "load of hooey"

Oh, and that hump on your back is most likely due to poor...

Re: ongoing back issues - exercise ideas

It's great to hear that you are lifting that way. But how are you spending the rest of your day? Sitting? And when you pick up things such as socks, do you hip hinge? How about when you brush your...

Re: ongoing back issues - exercise ideas

Hinging at the waist is your problem. Any half way intelligent chiro or PT should have told you that and then taught you how to hip hinge. I'd fire both of those people and go to someone who knows a...

Re: Patella femoral syndrome

What he said. Definitely skip the MD and x-ray. You will most likely get no useful information.

Re: Patella femoral syndrome

PFPS is rarely a knee problem, but rather where you experience symptoms due to issues either up and or down stream. Meaning hips and ankles.

Re: Sciatia

Where exactly do you consider your "sciatic region"? What kind of pain is it?

Re: patello femoral pain/ chondromalatia patellae

Probably, but not on an internet forum. Go see your doctor.

Re: Heel pain - need advice

Heel spurs are not typically a source of pain. My first thought is a stress fracture. PF tends to get better with activity. If it's a muscular problem (attachment point of abductor hallicus,...

Re: Sciatica

Figuring out why you are having the sciatica is more important than figuring out ways to exercise around it.

What are your symptoms? What makes you certain that it is sciatica?

Re: Blisters from sit-ups

Watch a baby/toddler get up off the ground if placed on their back and you have your answer. And no, they do not do a sit-up. Adults are lazy and use mechanically poor and potentially injurious ways...

Re: Dequervain Tendonitis aftermath....

I fully agree with Brian. Additionally, it sounds as though the cortisone did not do anything for you other than allow you to continue to aggravate the situation while you were, temporarily, no...

Re: Blisters from sit-ups

Don't do sit-ups. They are a pretty functionally useless exercise and they are hell on your low back. Problem solved! :)

Re: Lower back pain

Don't do that then. Seriously. Repetitive flexion is the number one way to injure your back. Flexion with rotation is even more injurious.

Re: Achillies

It sounds like you may be over doing it. Tight muscles are often tired muscles. Or tight muscles can be over facilitated muscles, or both. That said, I'd reduce the work load and get on the foam...

Re: Joint pain and left knee now swollen

Multiple areas of bi-lateral joint pain with swelling definitely needs to get checked out. How easy is it to get an outside referral?
