Injuries

Probably a bit of scar tissue still there. I had a right calf tear last year as well. Seems ok now. I got dry needling and was hooked up to machine which sent electric impulses into the calf. Also deep tissue massage. I generally avoid physios and go to physical therapists instead. More hands on and has worked for me over the years.

Cheers man. I’ll give that a go.

Make an appointment to see paddy leahy in lasercentre. Sounds like a build up of scare tissue. Deep tissue only goes so far, laser will have it as good as new.


#1465

Have you tried sticking your thumb up your hole?


#1466

@KinvarasPassion is your man if you have calf trouble


#1467

So long as it doesn’t need feeding


#1468

Stay on top of it with foam rolling after treatment.


#1469

@Bandage, how’s your calf holding up?


#1470

Good suggestion that cheers man

#1472

I wouldn’t suggest foam rolling on that for a while.


#1473

Get well soon, mate.


#1474

What happened?


#1475

@fenwaypark sorted him. Sorted him good and proper

I called to @backinatracksuit s door. Thought I could convince him to vote No In the 8th . He invited me in for tea, and then the wife and kids jumped me.

Is the foam roller any good for lower back pain? I’ve had an issue with it for a few years now, flares up on average once a year leaving me stopped for a couple of days, since I took up running it’s given me a little bit of trouble, the pain is more of a minor nuisance but I’d like to help it, physio didn’t do much, I do very occasional yoga for people with back issues


#1478

Might help.

Wouldn’t touch the lower back with a foam roller. Try rolling the glutes and hamstring and they can free things up a bit. Google pelvic tilt also. Common enough and can give lower back issues.

Unless you’re trail running or on grass I’d keep the distances low. Not sure running is a great exercise for lads to take up in their 40s

Do a few sprints on the pitches in Mary I rather than jogging at walking pace prying on travellers.
