Hi Guys

 

This is probably for the over 50's ..

 

I was wondering if you had an stiffness in the body before you play?

 

My shoulders, back seem to have over all annnoying stiff / tightness. Not hugely

 

painful and can still swing fine.

 

I used to enjoy practicing as a form of relaxation - like going to gym class.

 

Just keeping the body moving was a relaxing pastime - now I find it a chore.

 

It is not a huge pain but an annoying one even after I have warmed up it still hurts -

 

probably less so. When I am playing it is not so noticable - might have something

 

to  do with walking. Anyhow I do sometimes take panadol and by the time it wears

 

off  I am warmed up.

 

I did some research and found it maybe sciatic nerve, that effects the whole back

 

and shoulders aswell as lower leg. Connected nerves....

 

I did some excerices for sciatic and I thought it helped.

 

I was wondering if anyone had the same issue and perhaps found something that

 

worked. My issue is no matter who I ask...physio, chiro, etc they are all going to

 

have a cure ofcourse. I thought I would get a little heads up before I called anyone.

 

Maybe a good massage may help? Acupunture?

A regular visit to a remedial massage therapist is helpful.

I see one every 3-4 weeks

Sometimes we add dry needling to real problem areas.

dry needling ? Is the same as acupunture?

They're very similar.

 

To my knowledge dry needling is esentially using acupunture techniques, just in different places.

Acupunture hits spots that target what Chinese medicine refers to as meridian lines in order to get a better qi flow.

Dry needling can be placed in almost any area, in an effort to release muscular tension.

Same desired outcome, just a different way of going about it.

Stabbing the muscles with a sharp pointed thing is bound to be painless.

Actually, applying pressure with a finger tip or knuckle should get a bit of adrenalin into the area and relieve the pain.

 

I just do a few little stretches on the first tee and ignore any pain that tries to get my attention.

When I had a really bad achilles problem about 7 years ago, the physio suggested dry needling. I viewed it in the same light as fish slapping.

 

I hobbled into the room. And walked out. Bloody amazing stuff.

Why didn't you just shove a finger tip or knuckle in there?

Would have saved yourself a lot of hassle

Take two Advil twenty minutes before hitting the first ball and bite the bullet. No fee. :)

Hmmmm. I missed it.

Perhaps, if you were a little more selective in what you post, madam might not be so quick to critique your contributions.
