I was adjusted by a chiropractor 8 years ago. He adjusted my pelvis, the last time he did it, there was a loud pop and I was not able to walk for 4 months because a disc severely herniated. I have been having back pain since then. I went to a doctor a while ago only to find out I know have adult onset scoliosis, my pelvis is tilted, one hip higher than the other, left shoulder higher than the other, causing serious pain. I have been getting depressed and trying to figure out what kind of doctor or physical therapist can help fix the problem. It was the first time having my hips adjusted and I’m thinking that is all the cause of the problems that have started. Any info would be great. Thank you
We have tracked food intake and tried wheat and lactose exclusion, to no effect. MRI, CT, ultrasound, barium xray and bloodwork have shown nothing. We are waiting for a GI referral so we can ask for a colonoscopy. If that shows nothing, we don’t know where to turn next. 2 previous GI visits gave us nothing, the first said it’s muscular, the second said he had no idea. Also tried physio in case it’s muscular – we don’t even know if it’s muscular or intestinal. Tried lyrica in case it’s nerve damage, but it didn’t help. We are desperate for help and advice, any ideas for more things we can try?
If you are following my upper/lower split, there’s not a lot of direct arm work in this routine, so I’m guessing you are feeling the chest and back exercises in your arms more than in the target muscles. If this is the case, it may be that the weights you are using are too heavy. Or it could simply be that you are focusing too much on your arms when you are lifting, rather than consciously engaging the muscles you want to work. So make sure you focus your mind fully on the target muscles when you are performing the exercises. And then flex them hard after each set. Over time this will give you a better mind/muscle connection, and should greatly improve the results you are getting.
