I think you solved my issue, and I am sure it is the desk chair I am sitting in and how I sit in it! I am sitting on the edge of the chair, and so the hard edge is digging into my hamstring. Not only does it hurt, but it causes water to retain in my leg because I am cutting off the circulation! Come to think of it, I never had a problem until I started using this chair. An this also is a tight hamstring on my right side. I am getting a different chair right away! sitting on the edge of it, and then pressing down on the ball of my foot with my heal raised up, and this also feels like it is contracting my right calf. What a mess! Thanks for posting about the chair!
I also wanted to say that the past couple of days, I've noticed that I constantly have my shoulders moved forward.. even when walking I noticed today. I have to make a conscious note of moving them back. I'm wondering if this is contributing.
Hi, wow! The pain has been gone since Thursday night. Last night it started to creep back slightly and I just did the excercise again and it relieved it again right away. In the mornings, the area feels sore, which I imagine is normal. I'm so grateful to have something to do about it. I am, for some reason, concerned with something else being wrong , so I'll go to a Dr. to make sure it's not my heart or something else. Can you tell me, because i do not have the book you mention and I cannot find it online to read for free, are you to use motion once you have the ball under you, or just let the pressure of your body do the work. I've been doing both. Also, is it okay to place your hands across your chest and then elbows pointing up? thank you again. so much for being so kind to post.
