I'm wondering if someone can help me out with this, I'm probably just not grasping the concept here. I've always been chronically "tight" especially low body. Sports medicine doctors have told me I have the worse hamstring range of motion they have ever seen. I now suspect that this was TMS and that I've been suffering for 20ish years. It wasanageable over the years though so I didn't pay it much attention. 18 months ago though the back pain became unbearable and drastically affected my life. I was lucky enough to find Healing Back Pain and treating things as TMS has been the only "needle mover" for me in 18 months. I buy in completely! I've returned to walking , some running and weightlifting, all of which were out of the question while I was suffering. After workouts though, I'm still getting pretty intense DOMS and I feel a need to stretch things out. I feel like I need to stretch and here is my rationale.... My muscles have been held so tight and oxygen deprived for so long that they need to regain the ROM that is missing. I just don't want to be subconsciously reinforcing that this is a physical problem- I know it's not! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
