Our user asked: "I am a bodybuilder. I was told that I have lower cross syndrome, I never wnt to a PT for my problem, but recently I discovered this website. I have done some of the stretches and exercises for the lower back issues, but I wanted to know a few more things, like: 1 What is the best time of day to the exercises and stretches and how often per week. How important is it to get e-stimulation and massages? How long will it take to fully recover, so I can get back to bodybuilding?"
 
Ask a PT Reponse: "It may be a good ideal to consult with a PT to determine which areas are affecting you. With lower-crossed syndrome you could have issues at various regions: lumbopelvic hip complex, knee, and ankle. It would be very difficult for you to determine on your own which areas you should work on. If you click on/copy paste the following link, it will take you to a very informative article on lower-crossed syndrome and the types of assessment a PT will conduct: http://www.lifewest.edu/courses/syllabi/lower-crossedsyndrome.pdf
 
For this condition- I would recommend to the patient to perform their stretches daily for at least two times a day (in AM and PM and before/after working out). I especially recommend stretching after working out as this time period will allow for the most gains in flexibility. E-stim and massage/soft tissue mobilization are often utilized by physical therapists to help a patient achieve increase tissue pliability and decrease tissue irritability. Depending on the patient and the extent of the problem E-stim and massage/soft tissue mobilization may or may not be required. As far as recovery time, this will vary greatly from patient to patient depending on the extent of the condition and each patient's individualized ability to improve. I hope this helps and good luck with your recovery."
