I don’t think I would be the first heath professional who doesn’t always stick to their own advice. The reasons why vary; ego, laziness, time, the usual. Same reasons why my clients don’t always follow my advice I suspect.
But in this occasion I am. I think I tore a disc 2 months ago; agonising back pain, no referred, no neural. No position comfortable. So I was motivated to do the right thing. I’m adding 500m a week to a short, (almost) pain free run. It’s working, I’m getting better.
I’m also adding some gym and a little bit of climbing. For core strength.
This week – no pain at all.
