What kind of bag do you carry? Do you recommend a cart to reduce stress on the back/shoulders?
My wife got me a yellow camouflage Innova HeroPack backpack for Father's Day last year or the year before, I can't remember when it came out. It was a nice, thoughtful gift to get a backpack as a present and I'm actually quite pleasantly surprised with how well it has held up. It's a solid bag for the price point. I only get out once or twice a week these days with kids and everything else so it doesn't have to endure too much wear and tear. Holds enough discs and has plenty of space for water/Gatorade/beverage of choice.

A lot of people tell me they love their carts and have more energy through the multi-day tournaments, so I'd say they can definitely be a back saver. I've never used one myself but the biggest draw for me is it doubles as a stool and you don't have to carry as much stuff around. Having a place to sit down and take breaks throughout the day can be a huge help. Just like with anything else though, balance is the key. Switch which hand your pushing or pulling with and balance out the stress on your body.
(Insert opportunity for cart manufacturer to pay me to endorse their product here)

Ice helps get rid of inflammation/swelling and heat helps get more bloodflow with new nutrients for healing and rebuilding muscle etc. You'll be back on the course in no time
Thank you very much for the information,and I look forward to those videos.

I dealt with an injury last summer that sidelined me for about 9 months. According to the sports med guy I went to it was tendonosis of the distal biceps resulting from repetitive stress. I've since played with a compression sleeve on my throwing arm, and generally am playing less (which is a bummer). Anything related to that area to prevent future injury and maybe allow me to pick up the pace again would definitely be of interest.
Follow up with your sports med guy at all? Keep doing any home exercises/care they gave you even after pain is gone. It's human nature to stop actively working at something once it's no longer causing pain.

Appreciate the post! We're pretty evidence based and lean more towards a combination of chiropractic care and physical therapy. Long term results are always going to be the result of diligence with home exercises and self-care. Similar to Dentistry, you see a Dentist twice a year for cleanings but 99% of the health of your teeth & gums is what you do at home to care for yourself.

It's always hard on the internet to find that balance of wanting to help people out without giving out specific advice. I should just copy & paste something that says "see a qualified medical professional if you have concerns." Maybe I'll just add that to my signature?

As for the sciatic nerve, I did read about that as well. A good friend of mine actually has that problem. He started feeling pain in his leg about a year and a half ago and it has progressively gotten worse. It has caused him to basically stop playing disc golf while he tries to do stretching/strengthening exercises. He has seen a specialist but there's not much they can do other than suggest physical therapy. So far he's not seeing much improvement. Some days he wakes up in pain. I hope this is something that he can work on since he is a good player and it sucks seeing him take so much time off from a game he loves.

I sense the risk of a malpractice suit.

As for many forms of alternative medicine, not quite, but pretty close.

Weightshift/balance issue coming through starting from x-step. Your head/shoulder is leading your stride instead of your hip/butt/weight. Note where your head is looking while on the rear foot - looking down and back. Look up and forward on this step which will help you balance on the rear foot moving forward and turn back later.

First pic is of Rob McLeod in MTA.

Thanks. I have had this problem for a long time and haven't spent too much time to correct it yet. I self-diagnosed it this past winter just breaking down my x-step one step at a time and I noticed I started my reach back (and therefore turned my head) as my rear foot planted forward, instead of as it's moving back while I plant. It's a hard habit to break and definitely affects other timing.

You cant say you do "physical therapy" without having a physical therapist on the staff.
