Answer to your Health Question


After determining that I have a bulging disk in lower back my DR did a test on my muscles/nerves in my legs, said I have a lot of "muscle static" in one leg.

What does this mean? He has me on pain meds but they don’t help..



Dear Kim,

A static (passive) condition is characterized by a lack of movement or change.

The muscular system is formed by static and dynamic muscles.

If we have hypertonia, an abnormally increased tonicity or strength of the muscles our static muscles become shorter in an important way and giving as result the deviations and compressions of joins.

Therefore first of all, to stretch the static muscular system is advisable.

A daily hamstring stretching program is key to help relieve pain from bulging disk
