Looking forward to seeing and helping athletes at the Box Hill Triathlon races this coming Sunday. Come over to the gazebo and wish me a happy birthday when you see me. 😉 @eventsatw #improvementhroughmovement #postracerecovery #grinningandwinning...
Just to let everyone know that I can’t wait to be back working at another ATW!! I’ll be providing post race massage and injury advice at Stanborough Lakes tomorrow. I can’t wait to hear some race stories again. It’s been too long. Just look for my flags and gazebo....
A big thank you to everyone who has started to follow our St Albans page. 106 already. If you haven’t yet please do. We intend to post content relevant to and in response to our patients injuries and issues that come to see us at the St Albans clinic....
I love it when you see the light bulb moment on a patients face.
It often comes after they learn and discover a part of their anatomy then the realisation kicks in of how a muscle works a joint but how that muscle plays a role on the entire system of a persons body.
Take the psoas (Hip flexor) muscle, it is essentially a spring. Especially when you walk and definitely when you run. But, when it doesn`t work, think of it as a spring but a spring continually being pushed together. It can no longer function as a spring.
The spring would have the potential of being a spring again if it wasn`t being continually compressed.
So!!! Anytime you have been sitting for a while, at a desk, or driving etc put the function back into the psoas and give it a little stretch. Let go of the spring....
Stop Exerciseing!!!! When you perform any rehab movements like stretching, try to think that the stretches and movements are restoring your body’s function. You are hitting the reset button, returning the body back to your norm. When you think of exercise it implies you are trying to train the body beyond the norm. This is exactly what you want to do if you are exercising. I hope you do not think of sleep as exercise. That would be ludicrous. Sleep is the best thing for rehab as lots of great things happen when you sleep well, including optimal healing and repair....
