Thanks cmillercmt, I think most everything you state above rings true, at least with the issues I’ve been experiencing. I’ve only recently started belly breathing, definitely a work in progress. I’ve also started doing some more core work, stirring the pot seems like it works well, also incorporating some pelvic clocks while breathing correctly. Maybe I’m changing too many things up, but I’ve also been doing some isometric holds that Naudi Aguilar recommends in some of this videos, making sure I’m concentrating on a neutral pelvis while doing them. I’ve said this before, but I’m seeing some improvement. I’ve also been dry needling myself, mostly get a twitch response from the vastus lateralis and rectus femoris on the affected side.
