Subject: RE: loss of coordination in leg
I had an appointment with a physical therapist today. The first thing that he noticed was that my left (bad) leg was bigger. He measured the circumference of both thighs above the knee and my left leg was about 1/8" bigger than the right. Then he measured my strength and determined that my quads were way too strong compared to my hamstrings. He said that a person running a lot of mileage should have a 1:1 quad/hamstring strength ratio and I was closer to 2:1. My left quad is also more strong and defined than the right.
He said my left internal hip rotator was tight and stretched me out by laying flat on my back with my left foot over my right knee and bringing my knee across my chest towards my right elbow.
He also said my neck was too tight and this could be putting pressure on the nerves in my leg so we did various neck stretches.
He gave me a 5 minute daily routine for my hip rotator, iliopsoas and neck before I run each day and told me to do hamstring curls twice a week until I get to a 1:1 ratio.
I know there's been a lot of different information on this thread, but I just wanted to throw all of this out there in case anyone else may have noticed something similar.
