During the last year and a half i’ve been doing alot more squat and i lost about 1 inch (went from 5’10 to 5’9). Is it common ?
I go to a chiro oftently and mostly everything is alright and my vertebrae are not compressed or anything.
I would like to hear from someone that experienced the same kind of problem.
My second year anatomy states that we start losing height and integrity in the vertebral disks as early as thirty years of age. This put at at higher risk for injury (Bulging/Herniated Disks) as age progesses. Form should be an issue for these excersizes.
Most people experience some form of herniation as they age as far as vertebral disks. However, to claim a loss of an inch in a healthy human being in a year’s time is beyond strange. Either this guy has a serious bone disease, and undiagnosed herniation, or he simply measured wrong. Considering he claims no other symptoms, my guess is he measured wrong which most guys do.
