    Hi, plantar fasciitis may be a reason for developing poor postures and so hip pain. It is a variable but it is probable that there may have been others. Analisys of posture, biomechanics and other plausible factors for developing hip pain (eg. leg length discrepancies) have a crucial role for your case. Spinal disorder may also be a reason of your symptoms. The fact that your hip is not as flexible as the other and has limited ROM should be further ivestigated with an accurate...

    I have a question about my big toe. I broke it over a year ago right in the middle of the nail bed. The bone healed properly, but my big toe has a larger range of motion in the last joint compared to my other one. I went to pt for 5 months and they wanted me to strengthen it and it's gotten much stronger, but the range of motion is still there. This is bad because my big toe has to cover more distance to produce the same force as my other big toe. This extra distance means my 2nd toe is...

    Hi All, Have got to the point where the troubles with my hip are starting to worry me so iv'e decided to seek some advice, hope you all can help me, here we go.

    Your problem may not be the triceps but either there teres group of muscles or infraspinatus insertion. It should be assessed properly since these are muscles that help to stabilize the shoulder so that it will move properly. You say your resting it but you are not. The thrust of boxing may doing as much harm as pull ups. Get it assessed by a physio not your coach.

    From your description of symptoms - who told you had sciatica? You have had many varied treatments - what kind of home program i.e. exercises have been given? This seems to present as a soft tissue or mechanical dysfunction. If so manipulation or meds would not be very effective. Discovering a muscle imbalance causing a mechanical problem might be the answer. You already stated how active you are without symptoms so that would be where to start. What does not hurt is as important as what does...

    The process is way more painful due to the poorly run credentialing organization. My advice is to stand up for yourself, don't let them mess with you. They are lazy and incompetent. The testing, specially the practical is a dumb down version of what physiotherapy should be.. so brace yourselves!

    Pelvic floor muscles (not labelled) at the base of the body and the rectus abdominis muscles either side of the linea alba are our "Base-Line" muscles - the body's "core pillar of strength" when fully activated and elongated. Think of all movement of the rest of the body originating from Base-Line. Work on breathing with your Base-Line. Build the connection between muscles and mind. The rectus femoris muscles - like strong poles down the front of each thigh from hip bone to shin, aligning...
