Start problems
« on: April 07, 2016, 01:55:53 AM »
Day 1 - only did 3 mins arm swings, static pelvis, followed by errector contractions as indicated x 3 times a day.

later pain between shoulder blades (know I have upper back probblems.)
Relieved with heat.

Day 2. between shoulder blades much better, but on waking stiff down left back rib area to waist as well as usual right hip pain/stiffness.

Later did the arm swing, followed by erector contractions x 3 times during day.

Day3. On waking very stiff on the RIGHT rib side (back) and a lot of stiffness and pain in right hip muscles (outer buttock) like could hardly move for a time.  Tried walking, then heat.     After a time rib stiffness disappeared, buttock area improved, but still more painful than it usually is (have this every day.) 

SO HOW TO PROCEED?  Do I do more arm swings?   I'm in UK - the nearest myotherapist is 1 1/2 drive away.   I'm on my own and am wondering whether the driving would only exacerbate things more.    Ann

Hi Ann, when you work on the tight areas you will irritate them slightly as you are starting to move stuck areas. This is ok and treating with heat is a good thing. Keep moving these areas for them to slowly improve but just don't overdo it and keep the exercises general rather than specific to any focused areas except when it is the hips or spine..

Good luck,
Steve

Now completed week 3. Lower back pain improved, but the problem is rotational Scoliosis.  The excersises (wall sits) are agravating greatly the concave side and making pain not only worse in the buttock, but now going down into the quads.  The other hip and leg are weak, so I need some additional sort of exercies to make things more in balance.  I have gone in for myafascial release to see if this helps.

Hi Ann, leave out the wall sits if they aggravate. The best exercise for you would be the water workout as I said previously as gravity is your enemy at the moment. Keep persevering slowly anyway and just do everything else without the wall sits if that is your only option.

Steve
