  1. Arched is GOOD for your spine. It hurts because you are in malcompression. ARCHED IS GOOD, ARCH IS THE CURE. FLexion feels better, but ultimatley INJURES you. This is the paradox that is causing patients and therapists to not find the CURE for back pain; they are terrified of pain because they do NOT understand the mechanics of the spine!
  2. Mild now, but docs don't understand that the injury is just a SYMPTOM. THe pelvic alignment is the cause. If you keep going without heeding my advice, the next MRI in a year or so will reveal a much larger injury. Don't listen to docs when it comes to back pain. They're clueless. They won't know what to do unless acute surgery is mandated, e.g when nerves are utterly compressed and there is danger for permanent damage to these. Faulty alignment causes malcompression of the discs and cause them to deteriorate, disc protrusions etc. This is only cured by altering pelvic alignment (disc alignment, removing anterior compression of the discs - i.e flexion). You can fix it like this, if you stop tweaking and just get it done. Pelvis back and up, feel lumbosacral erectors working in posture. Stay there permanently.
  3. Depends on what the problem is, but if it's nerve related, the structures entrapping these must be rehabbed. Often the clavicle ipsilaterally must be elevated in posture, scalenes strengthened, cuff strengthened, scapular movement optimized etc. Depends on which nerves are irritated. Nerve entrapment isn't seen on x-ray nor MRI usually. Massage won't help you. Stop wasting time on this. If someone can't explain the mechanism of your pain, they're leeching your money
  4. You can only get clown work for 40 quid per visit. Sorry - but don't think to save money when visiting a therapist, you only fool yourself and waste your time. I kn WIth regards to your back pain, you have a major disc herniation at L4/5, compressing the nerve roots bilaterally. This is relatively serious and you need to fix your pelvic alignment asap. Read my lower back article, then tag me here with any questions that you have. I don't have time to re-explain all the fundamentals every time someone tags me where, but I'll happily answer your follow up questions. You basically need to pull your pelvis back and up, engaging your lumbosacral spinal erectors IN POSTURE. And stay there, permanently. Up for the challenge? It works, but it'll take you some time to nail it. https://treningogrehab.no/true-solution-lower-back-pain/
  5. We see significant scapular instability in this picture, as well as a too depressed resting position. Very very typical for nerve pain.
  6. On the olecranon? It's probably bursitis. Strengthen the medial triceps after it calms down (elbow extension while in humeral ext. rotation). You may need some NSAIDS in the meantime.
  7. If the pain is within the knee, it's probably patellafemoral pain (tibia needs to come forward, strengthen rectus femoris). If the pain is below the knee cap, it's probably jumper's knee (tibia too far forward, need to go back - strengthen hamstrings). See how to correct it in my article below. https://treningogrehab.no/resolve-knee-pain-alignment/
  8. Gotta get the pelvis into proper position. WHen it's not, constant improper compressive shear forces are imposed on the disc. Butt should up slightly upward and the spinal erectors must be palpably active in posture https://treningogrehab.no/true-solution-lower-back-pain/
  9. Sounds like typical impingement. Could be coracoid, could be sub-AC impingement. Sadly I don't have time to write long comments here on these basic issues but read my shoulder article. I've explained why these issues occur timeless times on this forum before with regards to shoulder pain. Read the article or use the search funciton https://treningogrehab.no/shoulder-pain-scapular-stability/
  10. Right levator scapulae is inhibited. Needs strengthening. Read my shoulder article
  11. I don't do free PMs Keep working on proper pelvic alignment. Post your pic here.
  12. Need more info on the type of pain. Usually rear delt issues are nerve related, but I gotta know: EXACT location of pain Does it spread? very local? Type of pain: burning, radiating, lightning, stinging, achey, etc EXACTLY what movements provocate the pain?
  13. Did you change your pelvic alignment? Post up a postural pic from the side, where pelvic alignment is clearly visible.
  14. https://treningogrehab.no/opptrening-piriformis-hofterotatorer/ Could be disc, could be muscles (such as the piriformis). Generally the pain will be more severe and easier to trigger if it's nerve compression related to disc injury, than muscular compression such as the piriformis. 1: optimize pelvic alignment 2: strengthen deep six (piriformis & colleagues) If the piriformis strengthening makes it worse, then you're on the right track. Just keep training it until it's strong enough to be used without causing pain. This might take some weeks but it's not dangerous, just a little painful.
  15. Stretching will make it better short turn, worse long term. DO THIS: Strengthen piriformis. It'll hurt at first, get better long term. And, of course, optimize pelvic alignment (read my lower back article).
