Albert,

Your reports on your status continue to help the whole community. Many thanks.

Your pelvic tilt

On pelvic tilt, please consider this fact. For myself, I found by fairly clear experimentation a couple of months ago, that exercises to correct pelvic tilt are clearly very harmful to sports hernia. I won't belabor you on this point again. I'm only saying this as a friend.

It's my growing belief that many sufferers of sports hernia (but not all) actually got sports hernia from consciously trying to alter their pelvic tilt during sports. I think it was a factor with me in my original injury. I've also encountered another sports hernia sufferer, a sprinter, who says that he remembers distinctly that he, too, had been consciously altering his pelvic tilt during sprinting exercises in the time leading up to his coming down with sports hernia.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
