I was chatting to someone about their strained back the other day.
***Disclaimer! I’m not any kind of physiotherapist, so I am not any kind of expert in this.***
She had pulled her back picking up a bag from the floor, so she was asking me for some things to strengthen her back so it won’t happen again. But because I have way too much free time on my hands and am a bit of a nerd, I tried to investigate and understand the problem and come up with a good solution. So I started off with a very important lesson I have learned…
Often, a pulled muscle is not due to a weakness in that particular muscle, but because of a weakness in a totally different muscle.
