Default Re: Arian Foster's Week 1 availability in doubt?

Before that, he had no problems with his back. He was then rehabbing for 2 months, which included running. His calf rehab was still not successful. It wasn't until after that his back started giving him problems. It is not uncommon for Grade II or III calf tears to require 2 - 3 months or more, because of ease of re-injury even during rehab. If he was having so much trouble coming back from the tear, you can bet that his core was compensating, especially with attempts to run. When your core is twisted, back muscles and vertebral bones maintain asymmetric positions with compression of the discs and of the spinal nerve roots that pass between the vertebrae and discs. This would easily explain his back problem now.
This makes sense. The twisted, asymmetrical vertebral positioning you describe is pretty much the permanent condition of my spine. Its ability to absorb shock is minimized, and it tends to stay compressed if I don't manage it with stretching, chiro therapy, and massage. I refuse to allow it to restrict me from sports or weight training, but when I really tweak a nerve or have a bad spasm, I'm done. Think Tracy McGrady.
