Beware of bra straps, girdles and tight knickers.
In the day to day running of my clinic, some conditions keep cropping up. I’ve no doubt many of you would have become aware of the above hazards. For those who haven’t, the following signs often indicate one of them is the culprit. With ladies who have tennis or golfers elbow, look for pains anywhere down the arms and most particularly the thumbs. Check the bra strap is not too tight. It will act like a tourniquet, restricting power to the arm. Do the Shoulder Procedure and the Elbow Wrist Procedure and suggest wearing a shoulder pad under the bra strap. This distributes the pressure over the shoulder. Wearing a sports bra will often see an end to the painful condition.
Another common set of symptoms revolves around the groin, quads, shins or anywhere on the foot. Look for tight girdles or knickers with elastic or a band around the legs. This is particularly important if the lady has recently put on weight. If she is a keen golfer, or bowler, or avid gardener, tight underwear will not help their performances, or their comfort.
One lady recently described a rather tense four days as a juror, leaning forward in concentration, she ended with the plantar surface of her foot being in agony. Doing the Pelvic moves, paying particular attention to the inguinal ligament, the knee moves and convincing them to throw away their girdles will go a long way to resolving the ache in their groin, shin or foot. The same can be said for the men who wear tight jocks or jeans and either lean forward to work or play, or spend long hours sitting at a desk or driving long distances.
Constant pressure of any garment [g-strings on the coccyx] will eventually restrict the free flow of energy to the body. So keep a sharp eye out for” underwear offenders” and with the addition of the appropriate Bowen procedures, normal muscle function will be restored as if by magic.
