      Hello!
      I have been faithfully following prescriptions from the Supple Leopard & TRS Virtual Mobility Coach – and can truthfully tell you my pain/range of motion has improved drastically. I am just wondering about the general feeling of pain – I wake up sore in my lower back and glutes every morning. Does anyone have experience with this? Will it eventually go away? Should I be taking a supplement to better ‘grease’ my joints? Any feedback is appreciated.

      Hi Shelley,
      Great to hear you are seeing drastically improved pain/range of motion while utilizing Supple Leopard & the Virtual Mobility Coach!
      Has anything changed in your daily activities/routine?
      Is the pain in your lower back and glutes something new?
      What position do you sleep in?

      Thanks Kaitlin – I will check out the episode above…pain in Glutes/Lower Back are not new – I should mention that I sit at a desk for a living – so I know that is an issue. My sport history is I played Rugby and Hockey for many years – so lots of physical contact which resulted in injuries.
      Now I spend most of my down time Mountain Biking.
      Many people my age (50) believe morning aches/pains are just part of aging…I refuse to subscribe to that narrative … so the journey continues.

      Shelley,
      I agree morning aches/pains are not just part of aging.
      Great to hear you have a history of being active and are continuing to be active.

      Addressing the impact of long periods of sitting will definitely help.
      At night undoing the impact of the day and/or proactively addressing something in the morning: Quads, psoas, hips, t-spine or wherever needs attention.
      Taking a look at your sitting position can help too.

      May or may not be possible to make changes to your set up, however, things to keep in mind.
      There are several episodes in the archive which address sitting position.
      One to get started

      From the Blog Kelly’s Morning Routine may be helpful.

      Another option for down regulation is Kelly’s Down Regulation Class or there are down regulation from the archive.
