Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
A friend managed to ‘pinch’ a nerve in their back? a few months ago whilst doing yoga. Since then they’ve been suffering from low back pain and a numb foot. They’ve tried physios and chiropractors and are getting very frustrated, depressed and upset about the complete lack of improvement. Pain is so bad they’re struggling sleeping etc.
However I think the yoga may have just been the straw that broke the camel’s back. Friend runs a lot.. struggles with flexibility and to get into a deep squat, does no strength work. They’ve been doing founder exercises, core exercises, nerve flosses etc as per their physios advice but no relief… I’m thinking it’s a sciatic nerve issue, general hip tightness, possible lack of glute strength/activation/core stability when running…
Has anyone had anything similar and found anything that worked, or areas you would recommend addressing? (links to exercises/mobs would be appreciated)
I’m thinking an MRI would be a good idea, however getting one of those ordered in NZ is a real drawn out pain in the ass process, you frustratingly have to go through all the other options first.
