    Firstly I apologise in advance for asking this question as I am aware that it is something I should be seeing a clinician with. Due to current circumstances, having a face to face appointment is not possible so any guidance from you guys would be most useful.
    when doing prone leg curls my left hamstring on the lowering phase mainly, as the heel passes the knee heading towards the floor has a popping feeling like something is passing over something else. The contractions are pretty weak. I dislocated my right shoulder some time ago and unfortunately the shoulder was out for a long time before I could get it relocated. The whole oblique sling is kind of out of whack, and this has caused left lower back pain, very weak glute and hamstring. I have done a considerable amount of rehab over the years and seen numerous people and not come up with much as yet. I did have an x-ray of my spine which showed my L5 transverse process on the right side touches my pelvis, which has reduced its movement causing damage to L3/4. Hinging is not great for me. I feel like I may be stuck in the world of bird dogs for the rest of my life.
    Any suggestions for getting the posterior chain healthy and strong? Or online therapists that might be able to help. I’m based in the UK.
    really sorry for the question and I understand completely if you don’t want to get involved with this.

    The actual feeling you’re having MAY not be an issue (no way to know for sure), but sometimes fascia holding things in place breaks, and the muscle can just slide over other tissue causing this feeling. If it’s pain free, I wouldn’t worry about it too much. As for everything else…maybe just spend some more time working on hips/and spine. (Look through some of my activations/prep and the Broga). Specifically working on spine flexion/extension and hip internal/external rotation. Try and work on end range control of these 4-5 times a day. It’s a bit of a “blanket” suggestion, but they certainly can’t hurt. Hope that helps!

    Thank you Joe. It’s not painful so that’s good information to know. I’ll up my Broga and other activations in this time we have. I’ve also just scored a couple of scrap car tyres so I can make a sled for dragging. I’ve been walking on the spot against a couple of heavy bands which is quite effective too.
    Thanks for the speedy reply!!!
