677. Wednesday Q&A: Bursitis & Tendinitis in the Hip, Mouth Taping, & Seated Forward Folds

Jul 12, 2023


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


In this Wednesday Q&A, we answer your questions about bursitis and tendinitis in the hip, mouth taping, and why we don’t do seated forward folds in LYT. 


Your questions:

  • I have a yoga student that was diagnosed with bursitis and tendinitis in her left hip. She’s 33 years old. She had a scan three weeks ago, then had a cortisone shot just after that. The cortisone shot has not given her any relief at all. She has been in a lot of pain. Both sitting and standing. Has seen a physio on a few occasions and has been given exercises but unable to do them due to too painful. Her previous exercise included gym work with weights and some cardio. Lately, she has been doing quite a bit of lifting and moving heavy objects around as she has a little business with pots and ornaments. She was advised to ice it, but she has found that heat has given her a small amount of relief. She’s going back to her doctor next week for further advice. I would appreciate any suggestions you can give at this stage to help her.
  • What do you think about melt tape for sleeping? I sleep with my mouth open, suffer from dry mouth at night and was thinking of trying it thoughts. Good, bad?
  • Can you speak to why we don’t practice traditional seated forward folds in the lip method? And what are the more optimal ways to achieve similar benefits of seated folds?
