Many thanks for your kind and thoughtful post..
"I wanted to send you some info on lateral femoral cutaneous neuropathy! (pertaining to your thigh pain) How does your L2-L3 segment look??"
It doesn't show anything other than slight bulging. However, during two of my last meetings with my PT he did adjust my L2-L3 because it was "twisted".
"The only thing that kept me going was my weekly or twice weekly to a guy I called my "rearranger." "
When I hired the personal trainer she sent me to her "body mechanic". This guy worked at eastern washington university with athletes for several years for muscle issues. She gave me his business card and it had this huge hairy hand on it. It was truth in advertising!!! That guy was one big dude.
Funny thing was he showed my PT muscle energy techniques when he was in college. Then my PT took that knowledge and got his DPT and started his own business. Anyway, when I first showed up at the "body mechanic" he did the standard check of the pelvis ( slowly bend foreward while standing, sitting, and then checked for any ilium rotation ) I said that is what my PT does. That is when I found out about their college days. Then the fun started! He stuck those big hairy hand deep into my stomach and said my psoas was in spasm - and then he dug deeper and said "10 second hold." That hurt! I'd hate to see that guy upset. Perhaps another visit? I just hate paying for long lasting deep purple bruising.
I just turned on the private message feature.
Was it your SI joint causing all your issues? My inner thigh problem starts in my groin area ( under the belt line by your hip bone ) and moves down where your leg connects to your groin area and then down towards your knee. If i sit down the inner thigh starts cramping like i just ran twenty miles.
