Can't sit down
« on: March 17, 2010, 07:28:32 PM »
I have just purchased the self help programme for my boyfriend. For around 8 months he has had a high level of pain around the sacrum while sitting. It comes on after about 10 minutes and hangs about once he has stood up. He also has some tingling in his left foot (but not leg). It all started a few days after he carried a heavy suitcase. He has had all sorts of xrays, scans, MRI and has had several injections into his spine. He has no pain lying and not really any standing either. If this is the result of a muscle imbalance, where do you suspect the imbalance might be? ???

Hi Kathryn,
Normally sacrum pain comes from a rotated pelvis so the muscles in one leg are usually the cause. he should pick this up doing the yoga floor exercises and if he does a lot of the ball compression work on the hips/ glutes combined with the SLM Yoga he should help this problem.

As the legs are hard to self treat getting some SLM treatments would probably provide the fastest relief with the self treatment. If noone is close enough just get deep tissue massage to the legs.
