Went to visit my chiro this morning to see about my persistent pain in my back/lat. It hasn’t gotten all that much better. He brought tears to my eyes again and we reviewed the exercises. I’m sending him a link to the squat-morning video so he can have a look at what I’m doing to see if he can spot where the issue is occurring. If he can’t tell from that, he suggested and off-site squat session to see what’s going on.
That’s great that he is not telling you to stop. (Or maybe he has in the past but I haven’t caught up yet). A few weeks ago when I went for a massage, she basically told me to lay off the squats and I told her that wasn’t even an option. She said a huge amount of people that come to see her have injured themselves by doing them incorrectly. Good luck and I hope you feel better!
He treats all of us. Court saw him yesterday. He will also be at the meet on Saturday that Court is doing. He’s never told me to stop anything. He just gives exercises to help strengthen imbalances.
I saw him today too. And I’m seeing him again Thursday. And he wants to treat me before I bench at the meet on Saturday. FML.
The only time he told me to lay off (for 1 week only) was when I first saw him and had a very messy disc bulge at L4-L5. Then after that week he told me to lift as heavy as possible to push it and test it
As painful as he can be, I like his attitude. It hurts? Have a large cup of suck it up and move along.
I’m thinking I might make an appointment to see him about my right shoulder. (Advice I should have taken 13 months ago)[/quote]
I think that’s a good idea. You can check him out and if you don’t like him, don’t return. Just watch his hands and stuff. For some reason today, he kept pulling my shirt out at the back of the collar and staring down it. Odd.
Seriously though, it’s worth a try.
