RE: Boyle is for non-hypochondriacs

Your pain is going to bounce around. That is just the nature of surgery. I remember I was getting tightness on the other side and worried that I maybe had a tear there too. Also had the hip pain also. Both have gone. I still get tender in the RA surgery side but less and less. I am doing planks and not as strong as you so I feel it. I think it is a necessary evil of inflammation. I too have days of pain free on my surgery side. Alot of them. I especially have not had any tightness in the adductors in a long time.

When my scar tissue popped it was in the pool and felt like a crunch. I remember it twice and was nervous but next day felt looser. Mine did not bruise but others do.

I do not think i had that in my ab area.

I just started lifting weights and very light. Not because of the surgery, but because I was a heaby lifter prior and want to get away from that. According to my FMS guy I hip hike on my opposite side (a compensatory issue) so I have a tendency to tighten on that side. I am following his protocol to a T.

I really think you will be pleased with the FMS assess,ent. I guarantee you will score well but will be surprised in other areas. The beauty of it is that the assessment does not assess weak muscles, but weak movement patterns. The way to fix a weak muscle is force it to adapt to the pattern.

Peter Egoscue also believes in functional movement patterns. It is not enough to just move...but to move functionally. I think by doing this you are putting your body in the best position possible moving forward to not reinjuure. At some point we all must had a dysfunction that simply was perpetuated by an incident or series of incidents.

Mine was I was I had freakish strength. Where I could lift alot of weight and lift heavy heavy objects. However, my core was very weak and when i used a rotary motion all hell cut loose.


I have no idea what you posted other than quoting some novelists and talking about hypochondria.

I think you should take Tiff at her word since she put things a little more (well alot more) eloquently than I. It is not FAIR for you to post these scare tactics. She is an educated and atheltic woman who I am sure is very confident in her body/movements. Yet, when i saw her she was scared. That is not right. Her husband assured her that most success stories are living their lives and although my injury was old and my rehab slower I think she was encouraged after she saw me and we talked.

I think Tiff had a very similar injury as me since we both have larger incisions and mine travels upward. Only dfffernce is mine was 4.5 years and i do not know how long hers was injured. What i do know is her back was starting to bother her when i saw her. Now, it is probably fine, whereas mine was over-worked for years now is hypersensitive and weak. After i walk 4 miles it tightens as well as my glutes. That is what FMS is addressing.

Dialog is great. I do not think anyone thinks they have the market cornered on knowledge since the injury has so many components. I know Surf directed that comment to me. We all can dig up articles. I also know Mike Boyle and he uses the FMS as a starting point for his athletes. However, he is not a surgeon who specializes in this.

Surf....I just feel bad for you dude.
