I have a neuroma in one foot along with hammer toes which I am consulting a surgeon about next month. Also L5 which is out and slightly tilted – McKenzie technique has really helped me with that. I’ve also had patellar femoris . Try to balance my workouts and listen to my body but after 25 years in the biz things over use injuries seem to occur. Would like to know if others are in the same situation.
I work with a number of clients that have repetitive stress injuries, habitual movement pattern and postural pattern pain, etc. I utilize a variety of assessment methods and corrective exericise programming in attempting to remedy these issues. A great deal depends on the amount of time over which the client has been using improper movements/compensations and/or postures. And of course, the dedication of the client to altering their lifestyle/habitual patterns. I have been working with injuries, imbalances, and improper movement patterns for a long time with athletes and fitness clients. It required a lot of research, feedback from other health professionals, and continuing education to become comfortable with and skilled at this type of programming. And there have been several instances where the issue required medical intervention. As I always require medical clearance for any type of pain issues a client may have, any necessary medical treatment preceeds my working with such clients.
