Stretch 2006 October 3 16:28Posted by diamond in : Health , 1 comment so far
Today i had my appointment with the physio in maynooth. He tells me that i have a compressed disc from too much office-time. He’s given me a range of stretches to do, and put me in traction for 15 minutes, which was an interesting experience. I’m going back to him on next monday, i expect this to be a fairly regular occurance. He also demonstrated to me that my cronic lack of flexibility isn’t actually being caused by my hamstrings, but by the nerves controlling them (i’ve been given stretches to improve that too ,-). He says the damage to the disc(s) isn’t fully reversible, but that the symtoms should be mitigatable, which is all i could have asked for anyway.
