5 Year Anniversary with Dr. Friedrich Boettner
« on: December 04, 2017, 09:08:00 AM »
Fifth year still had some nice improvement (believe it or not).
This also marks my fifth season back playing soccer. Every season I've had little nags here and there (Achilles, hamstrings, calfs, etc) but the hip has been injury free. When my conditioning wanes a bit in off season I can get that "achy" feeling after an hour or so playing. But if I use the foam roller a couple of times a week it really helps with that.
My local physio got me using a kettlebell but for only one of the exercises -the basic kettlebell swing. He coached my technique and this really helped my hip function with both strength and range of motion.
Well, that's about it. Five great years so far.

Good on you Chuck.

I don't play soccer anymore but I can relate to some of the little nags you mention and the achy feeling now and then.

All the best.
