I first experienced low back pain when I was a Freshman in high school. I remember after a day of doing cleans with the football team, I couldn’t bend over to tie my shoe without excruciating pain. What I thought was a concern only for people with gray hair, was now a true priority in my life as an adolescent. The healing process was slow, physical therapist visits didn’t really seem to be doing anything, and the frustration just mounted. I couldn’t play football for a full month! I knew there must be a quicker and more efficient way to fix this. After all, it’s not like I knew any personal trainers in West Los Angeles to help me out 🙂
13 years later, it hit me. Don’t get injured in the first place.
