bealaw2 daysThis isn't the first time.I guess sometimes I have a bad posture when I am sitting or standing. There maybe linkage between my calf strain and plantar ficistis and lower back pain. I didn't do much, simply getting some rest by not having any training. details

bee8 daysCame on just after the USOC2015 meet in Kentucky. No obvious event associated with the spasm, but it followed an earlier wrestle with a wet kayak, a return flight to Japan, and the flight to Kentucky from Vancouver, all within a couple of weeks. Probably an aggregate response, intensified by some hard running on the Carter Caves map. Treated with TLC and Vit I. Resolved after about a week.details

Tooms12 daysCause - butterfly. ie. flexion/extension of pelvis. Ditto one week later, but not butterfly. Big cause - too much sitting, not enough postural work, big imbalance in right musculature vs left in my low back. Resolution - lying on my back with pillow in low back to reverse flexion position that I spasm into. Lots of trigger pointing of erector spinae, glutes and possibly QL (need to look it up!). Nurofen. With hint of a twinge need to lie on my back flat on the floor and relax and it ha...details

fpb31 daysAside from lax warmups, cooldowns and cross-training, I think the main cause was an evening in early April when I went for a run at night and my headlamp gave out. I kept up my pace and made at least one bad step - I expected to hit ground and kept going a few more inches. I may have done this multiple times. I think this would have healed on its own but I think the chiropractor moved up the clock by a few weeks.details

Nadim365 daysIt eventually took surgery to remove a piece of disc that herniated in November 2014. Initially, after a few months after the herniation, I was able to get back to some regular routines as soon as February 2015. However the piece that broke-off probably shifted and caused me as much and more pain in May 2015. The surgery was in July 2015. Though I was able to hike, run and bicycle right after surgery, I continued to have weakness and numbness. I picked 9/21/2015 to say that I recovered b...details
