I work the range a lot then play and go back to the range. The gluteus are fine as I work them every other day at the gym per your neat instructions.
But I end up each day with sore upper back and as I turn over during the night I get a spasm in the upper back as it gets tight when I sleep. In the morning it hurts when I stand up and walk! It takes about one hour to relax and stops hurting and does not hurt on the range or course until the end of the day when it starts again. Seems to be chronic and recovery time is extending?
Any suggestions would be welcome.

Hi Jay Jay,
Sorry to hear about your back pain. I would suggest light stretches, i.e. “cats and dogs”, cervical side bending, thoracic side bending, side lying rotation (I’m covering a large area because I’m not exactly sure where your pain is)… follow that up with 15 minutes of ice for anti-inflammatory purposes. This may keep the muscle calm through the night. Before you get out of bed I would attempt similar stretches. At the gym, concentrate on postural exercises. Poor posture involving the neck, shoulders and mid-back can lead to abnormal stress and strain similar to the type you describe.

Will add your suggestions to my every other day gym workout. I do 20 cats & dogs, 10 cervical side bending both sides 12 each of your lying rotation drills so will continue them and Add the ice and stretching before I get up and will check my posture as we tend to bend over as we get older might be the exact thing to check out.
Good work keep it up.
Best regards, Jay Jay

Thank you for all your Tips. I just had my right big toe 1st MJTP total silastic implant on 6/27/14. Now it is healed and the swelling is almost gone maybe I can do a better turn at impact. What exercises specific to my situation do you recommend?
I have no restrictions by my Doctor. My balance should improve with more exercises and by strengthening what parts of my legs and lower leg areas?
Thank already for your clear instructions.
By the way, Could I suggest a new window cover? It at times lets too much light in the room.
Have a good day, Tim Kelly
Glad everything was successful. Barefoot balance would be my recommendation. Some kind of foam mat to stand on works very well. Once your single leg stance improves then you can do some more dynamic activities on it. Eventually jumping (like jump rope) or lateral leaps, with your MD’s approval, would help with the plyometric strength.
