"My Doctor told me not to Squat" Once youve build a foundation in strength and range of motion... why cant you squat? In this case, we see that there is some deviation to the side of the screw fixated hip below parallel but apart from that, looks pretty smooth. You would do some right sided rehab into hip extension, abduction and external rotation prior to help improve his hip position. In the case his position worsens with reps, we would then deload and/or transition to someopen chain exercises focusing on stabilitt rather than pushing load through his range. Depending on what part of your body is affected, understanding that your quads and hamstrings work the hardest in the first half of the squat and your hips do most of the work from parallel and below, then you can load or deload an area depending on what your program is trying to achieve. So in this case, would he benefit from deeper squats? Absolutely, building his glute strength and power will be vital for his longevity. The risk is that you are putting compressive load through the hip joint which means you need to consider regularity of performing the exercise and where it fits into the program @crossfithunter #squat#squattherapy#workshop#personaltrainereducation#courses#exercise#booty#powerlifting#weightlifting#crossfit#physio#chiro#physiology#performance#symmetry#strength#power#barbel#powerathlete#athletic#coach#trainer

When changing your habits, don’t think that the only way to do so is cold turkey. Small changes can lead to big results. Let’s say you want to drink less soda this year. If you have two sodas every day, take it down to one soda a day. Then every other day. And then turn it into your once a week indulgence. Soon you won’t be craving that soda & will be done with it all together! But don’t make yourself feel guilty if you fall short. Changing habits is not an overnight thing. Keep up the great work, Mavericks!

DAY 11. We are getting more creative with our food. yes, still making a side of spinach soup daily because I feel it is that impactful to this cleansing process. Here is cauliflower rice we made w a food processor, some fresh parsley, cucumbers, tomatoes, lemon and sprouts drizzled with @heyashfoster surfrider sauce (oil and fat free, 100% raw) We also now do some cucumber noodles with a raw & fat free marinara sauce Megan makes. It’s been fun mixing it up after a very routine week one and makes us feel like reaching day 28 and beyond will be even easier. Daily, the mental clarity and focus gets better and better which is translating to some of the best structural releases i’ve given in my practice. cleaning up your insides will positively impact all areas of your life! i’m seeing it first hand day after day.
Cerebrospinal fluid is the liquid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord. It’s nourishes, removes waste and protects your brain. It turns over 4-5 times per day and adults have about 2/3 cup flowing at any one time. It doesn’t actually circulate, but moves in more of a pulsing wave. /// Before I adjust a spine, I have my patients lay face down while I palpate (examine with my hands) their skull and neck while simultaneously rocking their sacrum. This seems to calm the patient down (most of us are in a sympathetic or flight, fight, flee state) and slow down their breathing. This is especially important in my hyperactive kiddos and new moms. I had one patient say it felt like her blood pressure was decreasing. This also allows me to feel for any tightness, asymmetries or restrictions in both the neck and hips. While I’m here, I’ll also do some distraction along the spine to open up the joint spaces and allow the spine to “breathe.” /// Sound relaxing? That’s just the start...
What are those big circular bruises?? __ Cupping therapy treatments have been documented as far back as Egypt 1500 B.C. This alternative therapy combines pressure & distraction around the area of stiff muscle, creating a “flush” of inflammation and blood flow. There may be temporary circular bruising in the area of treatment, as new blood circulates the injured tissues. __ What is cupping used for?? __ This technique reduces soreness and speeds up healing of overloaded muscles. __ DOES IT HURT?? __ In some case, massage of a painful guarded area can be very uncomfortable. Cupping is an alternative, relatively pain-free method of reducing muscle tension. It feels like a little suction and a slight “pinch” sensation when the cup is placed. Then you relax as the cups do their work. __ Definitely a case of it looks scarier than it is! __ For more information on cupping head to HouseofPhysicalTherapy.com click ASK STEPHANIE or WarriorChiro.com CONTACT
#figure4 is an awesome stretch that can be done three different ways. Gain flexibility; alleviate pain in the external hip rotators, the larger, overlying gluteal complex and, in most instances, the low back, too. . . The same muscles are being stretched, but each position places different stresses on secondary muscles and joints. Also, all will target the butt muscles a bit differently. Work within your abilities and find what is best for you. . . 🔹SEATED: Your hips must be loose enough to cross your leg as shown. If you have difficulty sitting erect without back support, we do not recommend this position. (We’re looking at you, sciatica sufferers and folks with low back pain!) . . 🔸SUPINE: Your upper body must be strong enough (shoulders, elbows, wrists) to hold and pull your knee close to your chest for 2 min. If you have an injury or lack strength in the upper bod, avoid starting here. . . 🔹PRONE: You must have decent hip mobility. Limited mobility will prevent one from getting into the semi-split position and may result in the stretch being painful or ineffective. . . If during any of these postures you feel any pain beyond mild discomfort in non-target areas (not in the the hip), STOP and try a different position. If they are ALL too challenging, stick with the Knee-To-Chest, Hamstring and Lunge stretches. You will soon be flexible enough for #figure4stretch. . . #dynamicbalancesf#balance21#dynamicbalance#tpc#rebuildrepairovercome#alternativetherapy#therapeuticphysicalcare#therapeuticcare#setyourbase#hippain#lowbackpain#backpain#sciatica#stretch#strength#tension#relax#selfcare#flexibilty#chronicpain#pigeonpose
Tag someone who likes to put heavy stuff overhead and also arches their back. 🤪 The overhead press is a great functional exercise to strengthen the deltoid muscle in the shoulder and there are often a few mistakes that people make when doing this movement. If you have limited shoulder range of motion, you will generally arch your lower back and let your ribs flare in order to get the weight overhead. Work on maintaining a neutral pelvis, pulling your ribs into the abdomen, and scooping the shoulder blades while you press overhead. In order to create as much force as possible into the bar, it helps to keep the torso tight to transfer energy from the ground, through the hips and torso, and into the shoulders and arms. One of the best to improve your overhead motion is to use a light weight and practice the positions in this video. Over time, your body will strengthen into those positions. This stuff can’t be improved instantly overnight. It will take continuous work to be able to press overhead without arching the lower back and deactivating the core. We will be posting another video later this week demonstrating how to perform the overhead press when you have shoulder limitations. For now, focus on trying to maintain the pelvic, rib, and shoulder blade position that is listed above and in the video. Challenge yourself. Get off your butt and work! 🎨 by @AshleyKayArt 💻Written by Andrew Dettelbach @MoveUShirtlessDude ▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃ 🌐Want more help from us?

🚨 Movement Challenge 🚨 - This one was started by @dr.natashasmith and it's much harder than it looks 😬 - Squat with one arm overhead. The bar is pretty difficult, so you could try using a weight instead - - #movementchallenge#getmoving
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lily pad equation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❓There is a patch of lily pads on a lake. Each day the patch doubles in size. It takes forty-eight days for the lily pads to cover the lake completely, so how long does it take for the lily pads to cover half the lake? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚠️Spoiler Alert: the answer is below: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔑It is is forty-seven because the patch doubles in size every day. So, if it covers the entire lake on the forty-eighth day, then it must be covering half of the lake the day before. Most people, though, simply divide 48 by 2 because they read the word “doubles.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I you got this wrong, it is perfectly okay. Our experience with patterns tells us that the opposite of doubling is dividing in half. More on this in the next picture post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📢Stay tuned.

Alerte étude ✍🏻🧠👀 Sommeil et alimentation : 2 facteurs primordiaux pour votre santé ! 🥬🥦🍋🌱🥕🍎🍍 🌃💆🏻♀️🌙⏰ #sommeil#alimentation#santé#chiropraxie#chiro Le manque de sommeil favorise les envies de junk food ! C’est ce que révèle cette étude* de chercheurs de l’Université de Cologne en Allemagne, conduite auprès de 32 hommes en bonne santé, âgés de 19 à 32 ans. Dans le cadre de ce projet, les participants se sont rendus au laboratoire le soir pour un dîner normal composé de pâtes et de veau sauce champignons, suivis d’une pomme et d’un yaourt, deux nuits distinctes. À l’issue de chaque repas, ils étaient invités soit à rejoindre leur domicile pour dormir normalement, soit à rester au laboratoire où ils étaient maintenus éveillés. Leur activité cérébrale et leur niveau d’hormone étaient mesurés le lendemain matin. Àl’IRM, il a été constaté que la fatigue augmente l’activité dans les zones du cerveau associées au contrôle de l’appétit pour l’une et au circuit de la récompense pour l’autre. Une prise de sang attestait, chez les participants privés de sommeil, d’un taux plus élevé de ghreline, l’hormone qui stimule notre appétit.

Apart from dressing properly for the weather and making sure you have a sturdy, lightweight shovel, here are a few practices you can follow to help make snow-shovelling safer: . Stand with stability: Stand with your feet at hip-width apart to maintain your balance. It's also best to wear boots that are non-slip when you shovel. This will help protect you from sliding when shovelling. . Keep the weight close to your body: Hold the shovel close to your body to guard against straining or pulling a muscle. When the snow is deep, try to shovel smaller amounts (3-5 centimetres/1-2 inches) of snow at a time. . Grip strategically: Space your hands apart on the handle to increase your leverage when lifting the snow. . Lift with your legs: Bend from your knees, not your back, when lifting. Not only does it protect your back, but you can strengthen your legs as well! . Engage your core: Tighten your stomach muscles when lifting snow. This helps to protect your back as you lift. . Don't twist: Avoid twisting your body when you lift. Move your feet instead to turn your body. . Don't fling the snow: Make sure to walk to place the snow on the side of the path rather than throwing it. Turn your feet in the direction you're dumping the snow - this better positions you to maintain good form. Your whole body will thank you. . . . . . #bcchiro#backcare#winter#tips#chiropracticcare#chiropractor#chiro#chiropractic#chiropracticworks#chiropractictreatment#healthcare#health#wecare#feelbetter
Try this on your next core workout! 💪 Transition from one position to the next while keeping you core tight and breathing regularly. Hold each position for 15 seconds - they get tough towards the end! Tips: 1. Pull your chin backwards (make a double chin) 2. Imagine cinching your rib cage down to your hips 3. SMILE 😁 cause moving your body is FUN
Sleep tip #2 for starting to sleep like a 👶 again. Swap out your blue light night lights with red lights. I bought a pack of 4 on amazon (link in bio) for a very reasonable price. Blue light, from 📺, cell phones, etc. suppresses melatonin. This hormone, when functioning properly, should tell our brain it’s time to shut it down for the day. Melatonin and cortisol should have an inverse relationship and most of us have a REVERSE relationship with the two. Science shows the bright artificial blue light from a tablet delays our sleep by 96 mins! What about a cell phone? Glad you asked, 67 mins.💡? 55 mins. 🕯? 0 mins! A candle emits red light and does not disrupt our sleep. Maybe we should pretend the power goes out every night and use our 🕯’s. Now if you adopt this habit, which I think you should, you’ll prob pass out on page 2. Please make sure to blow out the candle before you zonk out. (National Geographic August, 2018 Edition) Amazing 😴 article, check it out. We’ve noticed a difference in our 16 month olds sleep since switching out her night lights. I also put them in our bathrooms for when Mother Nature calls. There’s nothing worse than turning on a light when your brain is 80% asleep and Shazam instant headache. Yes it takes a little adjusting but don’t worry guys you’re not going to miss the toilet 🤦🏻♂️ or bash your leg walking into the bathroom. I put the amazon link in my bio of the lights I purchased a few months back. What sleep tips do you have? 👇🏻
Have you been stretching? . . This is a great way to stretch your hamstrings. Keep your leg nice and straight. Raise that leg up until you feel a nice stretch in your on the back of your leg between your butt and your knee. A tight hamstring is the inability to get your leg raised at 90 degrees with a straight leg. If your not able to bend that leg up to 90 degrees then stretch you hamstring out. . . If you don't have a stretch out strap then use a dog leash or a towel. #chiro#chiropractic#stretch#hamstring#stretchoutstrap#health#lowbackpain
