    Great back shot in your avatar, holy mother of pete! Looking ripped!

    Definitely keep us posted on what modifications you do! This sort of thing is so important to know because NONE of us are immune to injury. The more we can train around the injurires, IMO, the more positive we stay and the faster we heal on a variety of levels!

    Thanks about the back. That's my "offseason" look, haha! The pic was taken a little while ago, not long after I hit the BodPod at 9.1% BF, ha! Now we (cough) start the cut and try to get the leg detail to match. LOL.

    Only (and obvious) caveat is to make sure that you are still training around the injury in a "functionally correct" manner. I've been training around some imbalances for a lifetime and with success, but over time, the end result is having some really off-kilter things happening - like how I walk and really fundamental balance things. That is the priceless aspect that my current trainer brings to my training.

    Wishing you fast healing!

    Dang I wish I had that off-season "problem" .. I'll happily donate a couple % bodyfat if you want it

    So this morning is 10 days after my accident. Just a little pitting edema on the left w/ bruising but definite improvement...

    Enjoying this beautiful morning on screen porch with my little munchkin cat. She's been having some puke issues the past few days so I've almost slipped in puke several times as I opened the bedroom door and found a present yesterday morning, ready for an accident. But... my eagle eyes caught it in time and it was avoided

    I've had that same issue because I'm almost always taking them and immediately posting them from my phone. Instant fix for me was rotate my phone when taking the pic. LOL. The way "normal" people do it is load the pic in "paint" on a computer, then upload the pic here. I found that if I just let the pic load into iCloud and then upload them on my iPad instead of my phone I don't have the sideways pics at all.

    I had a traumatic injury when I was 5 which rotated my left hip internally. I walked on it all this time. And I was a hardcore runner. My OA wasn't diagnosed until just a year ago because every doc I saw prescribed pain meds and muscle relaxers. Got to a sports chiro a year ago and have bedn diligently working on walking pattern and reteaching muscles to fire after being shut off for many years. Last thing I want is to stay in the same movement pattern and end up with a hip replacement and/or spine fusion. Yuk. .

    I saw an active release therapist yesterday. (Sort of like Thai massage but hard manipulation). I totally recommend it for you gals. It's pricey though.
    My bf took me and paid for it ( swoon) because my hip and back have been painful since I broke my foot, no doubt because boot and crutches makes hips alignment awful. BF sees this guy for it every other week to help w/ pec strains, etc and swears it's how he got his double bodyweight bench press

    ART is da BOMB!!

    My sports chiro does ART on my neck, upper traps, piriformis, and psoas. The rest of my body is so tight he does Graston technique to loosen things (think butter knife scraping across muscle). ART is actually pleasant (for me). Graston is anything but pleasant. Graston on the quads and it takes everything in me to keep from screaming. :-(

    My ART guy has been a god-send and truly the thing that made any of what I'm doing possible. HYUGE fan! Something else I want to check out is inversion tables. My chiro doesn't have one, but I got the name of a chiro who does. The reason is that I feel like whatever I'm doing - seems a combination of how I sleep and the stress of training on my already sorta compromised thoracic spine up into the base of my skull (on the spine) is compressed. I think I'm gonna go talk to this chiro & try his inversion bed and see if it might be worth it to get my own.

    RE: ART & pain ... holy eff... sublime "scream silently into the donut hole" pain... Yup. I haven't experienced the "scraping" thing yet, but as they say .. never say never ... ICK!

    Inversion table FTW! I have one made by Hang Ups and LOVE IT! Thing is indestructible, yet very adjustable. And it can be folded easily up to store. Plunk down the $ and buy one, you won't regret it.

    When I was researching them, I came across one youtube that said don't do it if you're alone in case you pass out or something - would u expect this to be an issue??

    Which model do u have? I found this one on Amazon:

    I wouldn't be worried about passing out in the least. My husband bought it after his parachuting accident, took CAT NAPS (not passing out) upside down for years while single! LOL! He even made himself a utility belt to hold his phone, etc somhe didn't have to get right-sided to answer it. Haha. I'd say definitely don't try it on a full stomach, wait a couple hours. This is the one we have:

    There is no rule that says you have to go completely inverted the first few times. Actually it's best to ease into it. Not in case you pass out but because you'll puke. There is a safety strap you can see just below the table in the pic. The strap is adjustable like a luggage strap so you can adjust how far back you go. Also your hand/arm position controls your center of gravity so really you don't just flip upside down as ppl might think. If I haven't been using it regularly then I ease back into it by spending most of my time at a slight angle and then just a couple minutes at max, then over time gradually increase the time at max inversion.

    My dad has one very similar to this by Healthy Back.
