The Daily Echo: Back tweak and what to do with Kelly Starrett: February 22, 2023

February 22, 2023

Cause aside, it’s important to slow down and take a second. Pain around the spine may get you thinking the worst – the brain has an evolutionary reason for this – but take a breath and don’t panic. You’re probably going to be okay. Pain does not necessarily mean tissue damage. Ask this: ✅ Do you have tingling or numbness in your legs or saddle area? ✅ Do you problems when you cough or swallow? ✅ Are there changes in your bowel or bladder? If you answer yes to any of that, yeah, go get checked out. For most of us, the answers are probably going to be no. Priority is getting input back into the body. We love walking for this. As little as a minute at a time. Calming down using breathing and constant pressure is essential, too. Access to a pressure gun can be very useful here. Your brain is in threat mode. We got to get it out. Short of it? Don’t panic, don’t ice, get some movement in. Usually in 2 or 3 days you’ll be right as rain. About The Ready State: The Ready State is the new home of MobilityWOD.
