I was wondering if anyone is aware of scientific literature/medical professionals/physical therapists/rehab professionals/academics/strength coaches supporting or showing benefits of doing the lying/horizontal decompression unilaterally:
I’m not sure if I dreamt it, or the divine spirit impressed it upon my mind, or I saw a clickbait advertisement browsing the web late at night while highly self-medicated/buzzed up, or if it was just a Manchurian Candidate/Inception type implanted idea/memory suggesting to do a unilateral version of the horizontal decompression demonstrated in the aforementioned tnation article I linked. I’ve been doing the unilateral version before bed 2-3 hours after my workout on lower body days or if my low back is feeling a bit spicy and liking the results.
I know MWOD/TRS suggests similar modalities to what the tnation article I linked is demonstrating, the difference is one is laying on the floor with with butt close to wall legs stretched out vertically or another variation is a similar setup with the back on the floor then your feet are on the wall and legs in as deep of a squat position as you can get into.
Just wondering if there is any reliable/credible information on unilateral variations of these lying horizontal spinal decompressions.
