  • Dear Doctor Jo, I’ve been doing those stretches, activation and today I was in a kind discomfort from my hip to my knee, cramps?! over stretching?! I can’t squat! �� any suggestion?! Thank you for your videos!

  • Wow, Ive been working form home for the last two weeks and it-s really starting to affect my back. I cant believe this 5 minutes rutine really helped me a LOT with the pain. Im doing this every morning from now on!! Thanks a lot:D

  • Hi Jo, thanks for this video! I have very tight hips and this has helped. On your third stretch, I get sharp inguinal pain on the left with the left stretch. Do you recommend anything to give that region a deeper stretch or just keep doing these and eventually the tightness and the pain will go away?

  • Wow great video ��.
    I wonder if there are there other conditions that could give u this pain similar to sciatica or dvt like bakers cyst or something. Anyone got any ideas?��

  • Degenerate you were doing your sitting exercises can you sit on the couch to do it too and do you have any exercicises for the hip joints?

  • Hi DoctorJo..i was wondering if this is related to meetings since my mom has this similar type of leg pain..she said that after her meeting(sitting in chairs) when she walked out she felt pain…i was wobdering if im in the right video

    Sorry if my channel isnt that related to these types but I wanna help my mom to not have leg pains like these again..

  • Hey Doc, perhaps you can help me. I sit in my chair a lot, I animate all day, I work in my racing chair. Its padded. but when I am sitting, right under my knee cap near the ham string hurts a lot like being stretched. I feel it being pulled. Then if I slightly bend forward while sitting I feel the same feeling only on the right leg. Any idea what that is? Thanks!

  • I want to thank you. I’ve been going to the chiropractor for several months now. Every time I go in there they’ve had to adjust my neck due to the tightness in my muscles. After I found your video I started to do the stretches and I’m happy to report that only a small adjustment was needed on my last visit. Your video is saved to my playlist. �� thank you again.

  • Thank you so much, my booty has been hurting the whole day I took a shower some painkillers and tried this and now it’s much better, I believe I’ve been putting my weight more on one side than the other, my posture is really bad, anyways thank you Jo.

  • Thank u so much dr Jo. U are amazing. Ive been watching u last time. And i found u again bec i have pain and neck tension. This will def help me. And i will include this on my faily routine.. now i have subscribe. I wont lose u ever again!!❤️❤️❤️

  • Hello Doc, I would really like a video for Arthiritis elbow, I’m 22 years old and have been suffering from RA for the past 10 years, the elbows are so stiff and painful. It would be nice if you could put up a video for Elbow arthiritis stretching and exercise. Or is the already uploaded tennis elbow video suitable for it as well? By the way I find your hand and shoulder arthiritis videos so helpful. Thanks ����

  • Mam,I feel pain in my knees when a sit for a long time by folding my legs…is it any dangerous,how can I prevent it,I’m just 18..and I suffer it from 4years…pls guide me I’m scared

  • Thank you very much for this. I sit a lot doing school work and my right leg has been giving me issues for a while now! Much appreciated!

  • Dear Dr. Jo,

    The first exercise you recommend for your listeners who sit for most of the day is seated hip flexion, which strengthens the illiopsoas muscle. Can you kindly explain why you would encourage hip flexion strengthening? It would appear that, in fact, those who sit for long periods of time develop hip flexion tightness, and the remedy should be stretching of this muscle group, not strengthening.

    Thank you,

    Isaac Silberstein, SPT

  • Doctor Jo… I am seeing physiotherapist for tendonitis found during ultrasound…

    Can you make one general video on it that which kind of precautions to take??? Which types of usual lifestyle, exercises could help in general n not specific to my case… I am already seeing physiotherapist for it n its slowly very slowly improving

  • Hey, Dr Jo, I have lose hips & lose hip muscles that sometimes go really tight; what’s the best stretches to help the pain?? I also have a nerve in my back that gets pinched due to Levoscoliosis; is there a stretch that I can do to help with that pain to??

  • Jo, thanks for posting these video, especially in these recent weeks. It takes our mind away from this present health situation and allows us to think about ourselves and keeping our bodies in good shape. Also, I think it’s great for our mental health x

  • You are a life saver. I have been taking very long car rides lately and I’m always having to deal with those cramps. Thank you so much.

  • Hi Jo thank you from New Zealand. My right hip sits slightly forward from pregnancy 12 years ago which I never addressed. Would I use these exercises on my right side or left side? Thank you

  • Dr Jo My name is Dom, I have neck, upper/lower back, and once in awhile hip pain. I try to crack everything area to help but doesn’t work all the time. I just found your channel and I was wondering what I can do at home to help with the pain. Background: was in the military for 5 years. Rucking and being that I was airborne took its toll on my back. I also had a dirt bike crash was off my left leg for awhile and I noticed once in awhile I’ll favor my right leg as if my left leg is shorter

  • Thank you so much! I had a nasty pain in my hip due to a walk lasting 2.5 hours the day before, which was made worse by sleeping in an uncomfortable position, but it cleared up almost completely about an hour after doing these stretches, I can’t thank you enough!

  • Hello doctor my hand pain radiates from lowermiddle cornorof scapula to upto wrist and worsens with time

  • Hey! Doctor jo.
    I m the badminton player nd I have upper shoulder pain in arm to pick up my rakect to shams the shuttles down. Its very hurt full to m while playing badminton?

  • im 36 year old male 6’2 when i was growing during puberty my left leg grew 2 inches longer then my right by the time i was 18 years old and i have gradually developed more and more lower back pain (among most my spine all the way to my neck,shoulders ect.) and sometimes if im lifting heavy things at work my hip will pop almost like what a rotator cuff injury feels like (like that half popped out feeling) and every step ill take for days afterwards it will pop an pop and ill get excruciating pain waves down my entire leg straight down to my foot, i have been told by doctors i can do 3 things,have my themur in left leg chopped an have 2 inches removed then have it plated back together, have my lower right leg bone (forgot name) stretched with a series of rings and wires that i crank bolts on every other day to stretch it out looking like something straight out of a hellraiser movie:/ or simply get a shoe lift but a 2 inch shoe lift is alllooooot of lift and its not a permanent solution, But anyways for now until i decide to just get my themur chopped putting me in a wheelchair for 6 months then another 6 months rehab for the muscles becoming a loose rubber band im looking into any kind of stretches that will be safe and relieve some of this pain im enduring, this is actually the first time ive searched youtube for something about lower back pain stretches so im going to try out some of these stretches you are showing and hopefully ill get some results,because as of now im in so much pain at age 36 with this i can barely do anything,i cant do the things i love like hiking, fishing, mountain biking and just generally anything that requires me to pretty much stand up anymore because of the pain i have no ambition for it and it depresses the heck out of me. I fear if i dont do something soon im going to permanently damage my hip or spine for rest of my life so i must find something or have the first operation i mentioned done at this point in my life. Ive subbed and thanks for these videos. also i forgot to mention my spine is very crooked from it and just tweaking my back one way or the other makes it pop and crack in several areas so loudly it actually freaks people out near me when i do it.I try not to do this cause i know its not good for me but its almost like a addiction now cause its so relieving once i do it pain wise.

  • I know this isn’t a related video, but it would help a lot if you could tell me a stretch I could do to get rid of the pain in the tendons behind my knee. I over extended my knee and it’s been hurting for a few weeks and the stretches I’ve been doing have not helped. Also I am new to your channel, so if you already have a video relating to this that would be great to know.

  • Hello Doc. In my case I don’t feel any pain, what I feel is burning sensation in my lower back, just above my butts. I really sit for long hours. It seems to be spreading to my chest and now my right hand elbow. Any particular video you can refer me to?

  • I get lower mid back pain and muscle tensing a lot after moving boxes or equipment (not necessarily heavy) for a short period of time. An hour organizing the basement can cripple me for 2 weeks. The worst is during and after going backpacking camping. Can’t stand up straight, walk like an old man and can’t run if a bear comes out. Any quick pain relieving stretches or tips? I seem to do things properly like lifting and fitting and adjusting backpack.

  • Wow, Dr. Jo, I feel like you could read my mind, we are so in sync. I aggravated my back this weekend because of my ongoing torn meniscus. Today marks a one year mark; March 16, 2019 when it happened last year. Do you think if I continue to do all my physical therapy exercises from you I have a good chance of healing in another 6 months?

  • I am enjoying these stretches. They don’t take long and they help with stiffness. I’ve done them about 20 times and listen to you every time, lol. Thanks, Kelly.

  • Great video this really helps!!! But I was wondering if I could get a doctor’s opinion on this; ive been having really painfull shoulder pains for about a year and it started to become more and more visible that my right shoulder was simply not in the same place as the left one. A bit lower and forward (like a less severe version of joaquin phoenix’s). It’s not really visible at first glance but noticable upon closer inspection. Also my head, is tilted slightly more to the right and it feels really uncomfortable to apply pressure from left to right, e.g when laying on my left side.
    Just wanted to know if this sounded like something serious or not.

  • You have multiple videos on the same topic and other stretches. Some are longer and your new ones are short. So which one should I watch and practise

  • Hey Dr. Jo, I am curious about your seat to knee position. It appears your hips are ever so slightly above your knee height. Is the idea that this position is better than knees above hip post labral repair surgery?

  • Hello!
    It was 1 year back when I was learning boxing in the gym. In one of the punches, I felt a jerk/current in my right arm. Since then, I am having pain in the right bicep tricep forearm chest neck. Sometimes it happens on the left side. I have taken treatment but nothing is working. I really want to heal this and start gym again. I don’t know what exactly is the cause of this pain though I am very sure it is some nerve issue. Will getting an mri scan help me out with this?

  • Hey Doctor Jo, new subscriber here and will be donating to your Patreon! Back in January, I had a week straight of severe stomach pain/bloating + low back pain, that slowly subsided but then followed by bi lateral sciatica and also alternating shoulder pain from time to time since then. I remember the day before it all started, I had done some heavy bent over rows in the gym for the first time in a while. Would I likely have a pinched nerve doing this or a disc issue? Thank you!

  • Dr. Jo thank you so much for your videos! It is so empowering that I can learn how to help myself. I have seen spine surgeons, chiropractors, acupuncturists and physical therapists and they certainly tried (and often did) address the issue at hand. But other issues continue to come up. You have given your viewers the opportunity to address their own ailments… and you do it in a kind, simple-to-follow way. You have really helped me and I am so grateful.
