I have total disk degeneration of my spine, a herniated disk in the L4-L5 area, and fragmented cartiledge in both knees (left knee worse than right). I am under chiropractic care for the herniated disk. With this information - here is my situation and question:
I have tried numerous times to do T-Tapp but end up with a very sore lower back. I read these boards, follow the advice, have taken classes, use a mirror, etc. But after Tapping for a while, my back hurts.
I showed my chiropractor the Tapp stance and he believes with the problems I have in my back that the facets are being strained with this stance. He feels my facets are inflammed and this stance aggravates the inflammation. The pain happens when I really squeeze my buttock.
So now for the question, can I get the benefits of Tapp by concentrating on the form without squeezing my butt?
Thanks for your feedback.
