DM #410: Plain and simple. I don't care what's going on, you absolutely have the ability to heal, to recover, to change, to grow, to be ok.
Now, when I originally thought of posting this DM, the message was in reference to physical ailments, particularly those cases where medical imaging has unnecessarily and erroneously scared the 💩 out of people. But, clearly, this message can be interpreted however your want and applied to whatever you choose.
At the end of the day, suffice to say that we humans are absolutely incredible, and capable of so very much when it comes to healing. No, you may not be able to do what you used to do (right now), but you are NOT broken. You are not some lifeless, fragile thing. Stress, challenge, suffering, defeat, obstacles...we BENEFIT from them.
There are absolutely providers out there who get this, and think like this. We are not here to "fix" you, but rather to help facilitate the healing process. You are NOT broken. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Daily Maestroisms dropping every night at 7pm-ish PST. Get yours.

Free your feet 👣 from their coffins ⚰️⚰️ (aka - thick souled shoes with a heel, and narrow toe box) ----------------------------------------------
At Desk Rx, we will help you learn how to strengthen your feet so that you have a solid foundation. Good posture starts from a steady base (your feet) - if your feet are weak, you're going to have issues down the road. 💥(Knee, hip, back, neck pain)
1️⃣ Spend more time barefoot
2️⃣ Wear barefoot shoes (@vivobarefoot) has awesome options and great shoes for the office too!
3️⃣ Vary the terrain. If you walk on sidewalks all the time, that will cause problems too. Go hike, walk in the grass, walk cobble stones, walk on gravel.
4️⃣ Practice mindful walking. (More posts to come on this)
5️⃣ Follow @thefootcollective - they kick ass.

🕺🏻 #minutemobility #deskrx for Shoulder Mobility 🕺🏻
1️⃣ Sit back against chair + Tuck Chin back.
2️⃣ Move slowly, and make sure to pull arms away from torso to ⬆️ Tension.
3️⃣ Internal and External rotation of the Shoulder.
💡 One arm will most likely have more ROM than the other. That's ok. Make sure to spend more time ⏱ on the area that is hung up!
Did you know that lack of shoulder mobility and poor posture with rounded shoulders can cause lower back pain??? 💡Desk Rx aims to address postural imbalances, learn how to properly load the joints in the body, and get rid of pain from the source that causes it. #deskrx

Great post from @varidesk 💡
We've all heard: "Sitting 👨🏻‍💻 is the new smoking 🚬" --------------------------------------------
However - that doesn't mean that we should stand all day either. We are designed to move. We are dynamic creatures. Being static (in any position) for longer than an hour will not be good for your musculoskeletal system. ⏱ There will be times that we HAVE to sit for long periods of time (ie: car rides, meetings, flights, etc.) - but you can use @deskrx movements to help keep you engaging your body to keep you strong and pain free. --------------------------------------------
Ideally, you should spend half of the time 'sitting' and half of the time 'standing'. ➡️ @varidesk is an amazing company that offers many options to suit your specific workspace needs so you can sit and stand when you please. #deskrx

We were designed to MOVE. Make movement a priority with the ones you love. #deskrx

@mobilitywod speaking the truth! #deskrx

Hey YOU! On your phone 🤚🏼📲
Which photo do you 👀 look like??
📲TEXT NECK 💥 Ouch. We spend almost all day on a computer or our devices. We have the 🌎 world at our fingertips, but at the cost of horrible posture that is slowly breaking down your body. --------------------------------------------
Think of all the times you look at your phone? Literally thousands of times/day. All the while you are loading your cervical spine and causing localized pain (neck/upper back tension) - However, text neck can cause problems down the stream ⛵️🛶💥 If you have low back pain, try fixing your head posture while texting, and notice how that starts to go bye-bye. 💡Tip: wrap your hand under your armpit and use it for support. Tuck your chin ⬅️💡 If we spend approximately 95% of the day on our phones *(actual statistic), then you will be in BETTER POSTURE 95% of the time. Better joint stacking. Better biomechanics. Less pain. More confidence. #deskrx ---------------------------------------------

Quick!!!! Look down 👀⬇️👣
The way you sit with your feet and ankles can cause trouble up the chain! (Knees, hips, and back)💥 ---------------------------------------------
Now, I do want to mention: 💡There are no inherently "bad" or "illegal" positions to be in.💡 However ➡️ consistently staying in (any) position for longer than 20 mins. is NOT ideal. In this position is it fine for me to sit? Sure! (Maybe for a moment or 20 seconds)....but, if this is my 🏡 home base, and I always return to this position??....HELLLLOOOOO ankle and knee pain! What's up?!
There is almost always a causal relationship between pain and the antecedent to action (aka how we stand and move). We're pretty darn good at tracing big acute events (ie: sports injury) BOOM! - but, we're typically pretty horrible at identifying the more subtle postural things we do ON THE DAILY YO 🎤👋🏽 ---------------------------------------------

🌳🐒Our bodies were designed to move.
But we have adapted to our environment 👨🏻‍💻📲
Our body craves movement. It is vital sensory input for our muscles, joints, and bodies. When we are robbed of movement from sitting all day 🛋🚙🚗✈️👩🏼‍💻 - our bodies change, become stiffer, and results in pain 💥 We tend to refer to this as "getting older" 👴🏼👴🏾👵🏻👵🏽 - but it's not's lack of movement. You're only as old as your spine is. And if your spine never OLD! Go out and move your body. @deskrx #deskrx

Forward-Head Posture + Text Neck = 💥NECK PAIN!
👉🏼👉🏼Fix it with @deskrx #minutemobility ⏱ - This movement involves mobilizing the scapula. Rounded shoulders come from hours of 💻📱usage. Everything is all in front of us. Our posterior chain becomes neglected 😩 and weak 🙅🏻💪🏼 - quick fix for this involves engaging the Rhomboids and Trapezius. (They attach to the suboccipital portion of the skull and through c7-t12 of the spine).
Follow these steps:
1️⃣Tall spine, imagine string pulling up at the top of the skull (like a puppet).
2️⃣Tuck the chin back (give yourself a double-chin).
3️⃣Grab both arm rests, and pull up ⬆️
4️⃣Focus on deep Thoracic breathing. (Expand the lung in 360 degrees as in a balloon 🎈filling).
5️⃣Keep isometrically pulling up the arms rests and tucking the chin to activate the deep neck flexors.
Part two steps:
1️⃣Press arms up on arm rests.
2️⃣Chin tucked. Arms straight.
3️⃣Sink down and up. (Scapular elevation and depression).
💡for more challenge/load...lift one foot off the ground.
