661. Wednesday Q&A: Neck & Shoulder Tightness, Foam Rolling, Carbon Fiber Running Shoes, & Self-Love

May 24, 2023


Welcome to Wednesday Q&A, where you ask questions and we answer them!


In this Wednesday Q&A, we answer your questions about neck and shoulder tightness in waitresses, foam rolling, carbon fiber running shoes, and cultivating self-love. 


Your questions:

  • My client was a waitress for years. Her left side was always tight and stuck from it in the neck and shoulder. She used to get headaches but is no longer waitressing. I could guess and come up with some things for her to do, but rather go straight to you since neck issues scare me. Any advice on this is greatly appreciated. 
  • Curious of your thoughts on foam rolling or such devices. Effective? Worth the money? 
  • Could you discuss the modern type of running shoes that have carbon fiber in the soles? I have heard they are a “game changer” for performance. But if they are stiff, I was wondering about the impact on leg mechanics. A friend’s son, who’s 25 years old, runs in them about twice a week and has just severely sprained his Achilles, and it made me wonder. I should add the friend’s son is training for an ultramarathon, so doing lots of miles, even if only twice a week.
  • How do you cultivate self-love?
