how important is it to see a chiropractor?
I think that my spine my be uncurved at the bottom where its supposed to be curved in and that my hips might be tilted forwards too. I think it is from sitting on the computer for long, long times.
I just started track about 3 months ago and i saw a video of myself running and it looked like during my recovery my leg was getting triple extension, except it was too much downward and not enuf backward force. Also my leg swinging back up over my support knee in recovery cycle occured in front of my support leg as it drove up and my knee drive was huge and very high.
These observations are what led me to the conclusion that my spine is curved and my hips are tilted forward, i also theorized that this is causing me to land ahead of COM which is causing some braking.
And i also noticed sometimes when i run really fast and tall on hard surfaces that i make a lot of noise with my feet when running (feet slapping on ground), i think its cuz i am releasing my dorsiflexion a bit too early cuz my legs are too high from tilted forward hips, and since my feet havent quite hit the ground yet when i release dorsiflexion, my foot slaps ground before i spring off.
One more thing i noticed on my video was that my arms are too low and they seem kinda stiff in the 90 degree position, and they definitely do not drive back far enuf, how can i work to improve my arm mechanics so that they look more fluent and natural?
oh yeah, and i had very bad shin splints but they went away now, but i think i have slightly fallen arches, should i get orthopedics to fix this problem, does it help alot?
Btw i’ve been reading ur boards alot in the 3 months since i started tracj, even on the old forums, but i just never posted becuz i am no where near the level of sprinter that some of you are or coach, although i do have the genetics to become a great sprinter… anyway plz help me out, thx
ps i have alot of trouble with b-skip, any pointers?
