This is mostly aimed at the amazing minds of Eric Cressey and Mike Robertson and Dr. Ryan but any input is greatly appreciated.
Here is the deal- I have had an injury for damn near a year and I wont heal. I have been over to myalgistat.com and recieved some absolutely amazing advice from TT concerning food allergies and body chemistry and perhaps having fibromyalgia. That side of the coin is in the works concerning healing and I am going to make a post about those issues seperately and beg Dr. Ryan for some help there. Now I am hoping for some help with this side of the coin from the ultimate brains here.
I will start with the fact that I was/am the neanderthal. I exhibit at least some of the tell tale signs of each of the problems addressed in the neanderthal articles. The worst of the conditions was the overactive and tight QL contributing to the overpronounced arch in the lower back. I have tight and inhibited hip flexors and INTERNALLY(i had externally, im an idiot) rotated femurs (the right side is much worse than the left).
Next the injury. The first time it happened i was 19 and replacing windows under the table. My genius boss managed to drop a bay window on my head and my back was injured- it hurt like bloody hell on the lower left side. I was young and healed pretty quickly and thought nothing of it. I had a couple minor episodes from sports or lifting through the years, but nothing major- back in the game within a week or two. The latest injury has sat me down for damn near a year. I was squatting and felt a nice sizzle at the lower left side of the small of my back.
It steadily hurt more and more and more until I went to and ortho. I recieved the diagnosis of a disc problem and got some antis and relaxers. Did some good until the scripts ran out. I went to a chiro and PT and the diagnosis was injury to my QL and piriformis. From reading I have done that diagnosis was dead on. As of late it has been more my piriformis than my QL, but for some reason today my QL is back at it and hurting like a mother. I cant sit for more than ten minutes, I cant do even light upper body work, I cant stand for more than 20 minutes. It makes working on my thesis a royal pain in the rump.
I guess my point is - HELP PLEASE. If there is anything I left out or didnt explain enough or clearly please let me know. I greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.
