Why does my left leg hurt along the sides kind of like that uncomfortable feeling when you are stretching?

by admin on January 5, 2010

It happens when I am standing totally straight, it’s almost like my body’s out of alignment! Kind of like when you pull the blind shutter string the wrong way and one side of the string is loose while the other side is super tight and the blind shutter is pointing diagonally.

If you feel your body is out of alignment then the best thing to do is release all the muscles in your back so that it can be resting at ease rather than with a pressure on it. Here is how you can make that happen:
Place your left hand on your left knee. Place your right hand over your left shoulder and with your fingertips find the muscle next to your spine. Press on it and hold. Relax, take a deep breath and exhale and don’t tense up any part of your body. After about 30 seconds there should be a release happening and when it does slowly lower yourself forward onto your right leg. If you can lean over the outside edge of your leg it will be better for your release. Continue holding for a total of one minute. Then release but rest your body there for one minute longer. Then reverse and do the right side.
