Things are continually improving. Ill be squatting tomorrow for first time in 3 weeks about. I honnestly have almost no pain left he is really doing a great job so it feels good. Next from acute rehab to chronic rehab work hoping to get my posture back to a better shape and help re-hydrate that vertebrae.
OP, I've almost identical issues to yourself, and my chiro has gone with exactly the same diagnosis, treatment and recommendations. He had me back on the weights before too long, though it's taking a very long time to properly correct the situation. I was so tight he just couldn't get movement in my hip, so I did a lot of mobility work and it is finally at the stage where is able to make useful adjustments.
My squats are still very wobbly, typically my first rep in a set I'm not well balanced, then I adjust and it gets better. I've always got a tendency to roll forward on to the ball of my left foot unless I try very hard to hold the weight back there and keep it even. If I don't the bar is pretty uneven as I lift.
I trawled the boards for similar issues a few months back, ended up PMing a couple of guys who had had the issue over the past few years. The posts and PMs I got back confirmed that the heel lift, chiro, mobility work and focus on symmetry in lifting were the way to go. I will forward on the messages and threads links.
sspikey and Dragar,
Why did you choose a chiro as opposed to a physical therapist? It seems to me that the work that was done on you would be more
the physical therapists domain..
