If you have been following me for a while you would know that like all Judoka, I have suffered my fair share of injuries. My biggest injuries include 5 knee operations, broken ribs and torn ligaments in my elbow, wrist and my finger as well as 2 cauliflower ears (my left ear is worse than my right) :).
Back in 2009 while I was warming up for the Rio Grand Slam I was performing left and right Seoi nages and on my fifth or sixth rep I felt my back go “snap, crackle, pop!” It was horrible and it completely stuffed up my competition preparation for the day. I fought terribly because I could barely stand up straight and I got beaten pretty easily.
At that time I really needed something that could have assisted in strengthening my lower back as well as helped me to mange the injury as soon as it happened.
Since then I have had constant trouble with my lower back (more specifically the sacral iliac joint). I have been managing it with yoga and stretching but this week Rick from Exercises for injuries has released a new product called Fix my Back Pain. The product is full of eBooks and videos to help fix your back pain whether it it general soreness, a strain or a a ruptured disc.
It turns out to be information I wish I had a few years ago in Brazil when I couldn’t stand up straight.
Rick has created 3 ways of dealing with your lower back issues and getting back on track.
Part 1) Internal reshaping:
Part 2) External reshaping
Part 3) Injury specific exercise
To do this Rick has written and filmed over 2 hours of injury specific back rehab regimes for pains and sprains, herniated and bulging discs, general stiffness, soreness and more.
If you have constant back pain then I encourage you to grab a copy of Fix My Back Pain and get on track to having a stronger, stable and more mobile back. I wish I had this sort of information back when I was competing as it has some really great info on how to build real core strength, lower back mobility and ways to make sure you don’t injure your lower back.
The product also comes with a Bonus eBook called The 48 Hour Back Pain Rescue guide. This eBook shows you how to treat a fresh back injury with step by step instructions. This is definitely the sort of info I needed in Brazil when I heard my back go “snap, crackle, pop.’
