    He draws the sticks for patients.... you leave with a set of "stick" exercises - copied into your notes for posterity...

    Yeah - I could photo but I was interrupting a visit from his grandson so we were trying to be quick about it... He tells me he will retire next year... I'll be he is really a very good physio - with good skills and no ego so happy to hand you on to someone who may specialise in the area you are having issues. (eg his daughter in a podiatrist - but he sent her to another physio that specialised in hips when she had a hip problem a couple of times - she has since had 2 kids and still no problems with those hips.)

    Thanks for the illustration, I knew exactly what you were talking about by the explanation. We'll give it a shot.

    yep - it is a 'variation' I guess on the old piriformis stretch in which you place the ankle on the other knee(but need to bend the straight leg for that) and then lift the whole lot towards you... but this one allows you more range of motion in different directions... I can usually do the priiformis one easily with little 'stretch' feeling much... but this one ALWAYS gets me - although I sometimes have to play with ankle angle to 'get' the annoying bit.... I try to do it after every run - probably should do it every day really... which works if I run everyday(which I prefer to do)... I have found this stuff worked for my SIJ which has not really played up in ages - then again a pair of custom orthotics made a massive difference to my gait etc also... so although it did take YEARS to settle properly it has now with a bit of work(took time to change gait pattern I guess)...

    Great descriptions and pretty snazzy illustration too! Thank you so much!

    I got myself back to the gym today and did the core workout that my last boot-camp/trainer did for me. It felt great! I'll add these stretches to my routine and see how that helps. I also signed up for a new "core" boot camp with the same trainer--it starts on July 9th so looking forward to that too. I hate hurting and will do just about anything to relieve the pain (well, almost anything!)

    LT, that is a great stretch, I varied the angles and pressures and accomplished different things. You can stretch the hammies,quads, hip flexors and the SI joint with just a little variation,pretty cool. I'm sure it will take me a while to loosen up the damage I have inflicted on myself, it didn't happen over night and will not be fixed over night either. Thanks, Dave

    Yeah - as soon as Ken showed me I realised it was the one I do after running.... I'd forgotten he gave it to me... then I remembered it as he did it... The funny thing is whenever I do it the gym people freak as they think I am killing my knee!

    I'd really look into that Lisa Westlake book - you can do those pretty conveniently and pick what fits in with the rest of your routine. Eg if you go to gym then do the back routine. If you do nothing else pick a work out... etc etc

    I do feel that if you do it wrong and bend the knee too much to the side you could do something to your ligaments.However, that is when you get the deepest stretch in the glutes.
