DM #610: Trainers, stay in your lane. Clients, don’t settle for bandaids. Clinicians, do better.
Got a text from a close friend explaining that she had asked her boxing coach to modify her core exercises because they made her back pop. His response: “You need an adjustment. My chiro will be in this week.” ??♂️
First off, if this is you, it’s likely not your back that is popping, but rather your hip flexor. Check out #maestrofyyourhip for an explanation as to what is likely going on. Second, kindly ask your trainer to stay in their lane. Third, get in and see a provider who can help you move better.
That hip clunk/SI joint “shift”/back pop with core exercises is something that I see ALL the time, and something that can and should be addressed. Just because it doesn’t hurt doesn’t mean it isn’t dysfunctional. Get in. Get assessed. Get better. The end.
Daily Maestroisms dropping whenever the craziness of life allows ??♂️. Get yours.
