Instructed to slump!
« on: April 01, 2011, 04:24:46 pm »
2nd session with Physio today. She's trying help sort out why I'm getting hip pain - which could be a symptom of arthritis, or something else.

She's convinced it is from my back. Says I'm hyper mobile when bending backwards, but "I have the stiffest lower back she's ever seen" when trying to bend forwards. I'm not inflexible by normal measurements - can put hands on floor, but apparently I'm bending purely from the hip, not my back.

So I have stretching exercises and instruction to try letting my back slump a bit. Quite the reverse of all the Alexander technique etc I've been doing for years.
