This is lengthy, and I apologize, but wanted to share 'my story' if it helps anyone: I started having intermittent low back pain...left hip area about 3 yrs. ago. Most of the time, I could ignore it, but I'd be a bit stiff in the mornings. Then, in May, I tried an inner thigh exercise that I had done sitting down, but for something different I did the same move only while standing up. BIG mistake for me! My back felt like it was on-fire for 3 days straight until I could see my chiropractor. Since then I've been having regular adjustments that have helped. I don't have any issues with bulging disks, etc. but I was born with my neck bones aligned 180 degrees the opposite of how they are supposed to be. I had a thoracic scoliosis, and my left hip bone was twisting inward. Now, my entire spine is properly aligned, but I've had to rehab the too-tight muscles in my l. hip area. Walking was about the only thing that actually felt good. I did my chiro stretches daily as prescribed---->interestingly, and will come as no surprise, several of them are incorporated into certain T-Tapp exercises. As of today, I have awareness of my hip being "sore" but I consider it as practically pain free. I do BB+ and alternate with the LB standing. I'm, not yet, allowed to do any exercise that incorporates external hip rotation, (HD, Thread the Needle, for a couple of examples.) I didn't have weight to lose, but wanted to increase tone when I started. In spite of the limitations, I have dropped a few pounds, lost a few inches and more muscle definition can be seen. I anticipate being back to doing whatever I want very soon. I LOVE T-Tapp and am so glad I found out about it.
