RIP LouieAnyone ever try a reverse hyperextension? Louie SImmons (super gnarly powerlifter, westside barbell) and some others swear by it for back pain.
I'd like to get one but I don't have the space. I do have traditional hyperextension in my garage and it seems to help somewhat.
Close, but not quite
The good news is he paid for his placebo device and you get to use it for free.A few days ago, I got that unfortunate feeling that my low back became unhinged again and that familiar feeling of an ice pick being jammed in my hip. Everything locked up. My torso was leaning at a 45 degree angle even though it felt like I was standing straight up. Could barely stand up or walk.
A friend of mine does all kinds of things to keep his body in shape. He let me use this laser therapy machine he has: https://www.thorlaser.com/. Boom two sessions and I'm almost back to normal. Usually when this happens its weeks of agonizing pain. The only kicker is these things run $15-40k.
I'm going to assume there is exactly zero scientific literature pointing to the efficacy of some silly faux laser device but I'm willing to read it if it exists.Seems to be scientific study literature that would say its more than hocus pocus.
It wasn't a study. It was a third party observation of another parties written material about their observation.Nah, more like the first study I linked to, discogenic lumbar radiculopathy
i had mine about 15 years ago - best thing i ever did. fwiw, it took about 2 years for all the leg sciatic nerve tinglies to go away.
