      I am starting to feel like this flexibility endeavor is becoming a little tough.  Nothing being discussed feels above my head, its just things may need to be addressed with other doctors. I can’t achieve full ROM without the help of a doctor.

      It’s a grind. Depending on your past and how immobile you’ve become, you may need to address more area’s and for longer periods of time than someone else with a different background.

      Some people will have to grind out one area after another before they can achieve full ROM in any given body part. Help from “super friends” or doctors may be needed and will most likely increase the rate of improvement.

      Understanding the big picture and theory behind the engineering of the human body may be complex. But realizing you have a specific issue with x body part ROM and tackling that with mobility drills is not. Once you learn to hunt and “communicate” with your body, the process becomes quite natural and organic.

      Pain (the good kind) is involved. Time is involved. Drugs, such as wine, may be involved to help slow your mind down and allow for the patience to feel what’s happening. But if you put in the effort, improvement will also be involved.

      Yes, there are times when seeing a doctor is needed, and there is nothing wrong with that. The situation may require coming at it from a couple different perspectives.
      You may need to work through a couple layers of something before you get to the foundation of it and start seeing change that holds.

      When you have years of less-than-optimal tissue adaptations to clear through it takes real time to undo. Only with the application of real intent and a commitment to consistency will you see a change. That change might be almost negligible at first, but over time the effort you put in will yield better and better results as the tissue adapts bit by bit to the change you’re imposing, and as you get better and better at implementing your mobility work and zeroing in on what exactly is needed.
