Eric has an excellent reply as usual. I need to start saving some of those answers, as it would save me some typing .
Definitely stretch ITB/TFL frequently. The therapy should help to work out any trigger points or adhesions in the tissue. Obviously make sure they show you a good home stretching program. Check out Eric’s Feel Better for 10 bucks article, on how to use a foam roll to do some myofascial work at home.
Stop being such a tight ass
Thanks for the reference - I’ll definetly check that out.
As for the tightness of my ass, it will NEVER change! I pinch pennies for a reason.
Everybody has been giving some great advice and I’m sure the PT will give you some great stretching programs. I just recently did a short paper on ITB/TFL in my sports med. class and here are two websites that I had found for some resources.
Hope it helps. Best of luck.[/quote]
Thanks for the links. Funny thing, the second link’s second exercise - that is one of the aggraviting motions in my lifting. Hellofathing.
Oh, doing this therapy won’t make me poverty-stricken-skinny like that guy in article #2, will it? I busted my ass (which makes me wonder why it’s so tight) to get from 105 to 205.
I should probably sleep now. First PT session at 8 in the morning.
Again, thanks to all, and please keep it coming - this thread might prove useful to more than just my tight ass.
