The rest that's best
Treatment of chronic radiculopathy of the first sacral nerve root using neuromobilization techniques: A case study -Journal of Back & Musculoskeletal Rehab 9-10, Talebi et al.
A good book for every A.T.'s personal library should be Australian David Butler's "The Sensitive Nervous System". It's full of great, safe, easy to learn neuromobilization techniques.
This is the kind of stuff I think belongs in the recovery/restoration phase of training.
Where did that day after the high school football game lifting/running deal begin? All you see is a bunch of sore, tired kids using bad technique and slogging. After a collison sport like football or rugby, why not an extended dyamic flexibility routine; something that looks like yoga or thai chi? It's a great way to get some neural mobilization going before the fibrin and elastin from the inflammatory injury response bites down on the axons.
