I wanted to share with you a quick story about my recent ache that I have been dealing with and how I needed to be reminded of the lesson that I preach to patients.
For the past month, my groin has felt tight, like it needed to be stretched. So what did I do? I stretched it…You can probably guess that it was not getting better.
Finally last week, Jeremy (who is interning with us) and who has quickly shown us to be an expert in lower back and hip diagnosis did an exam on me.
He came to the conclusion that I had a hip impingement issue going on and that stretching was actually making it WORSE. So for a month, I was essentially hurting myself.
Yes, the irony is REAL.
This is the exact conversation I have with the people I treat.
#1 is to STOP doing the things that are making you worse.
Then, once we can do that…the world is our oyster.
But you need to have the awareness to do this.
Even me, the professional, wasn’t able to do this.
