🌟This phenomenon is still being studied and researchers still cannot pinpoint exactly how it works.
🌟Some hypotheses range from endorphin release to simply the fact that exercise can distract us from pain.
🌟The duration of pain reduction ranges in individuals depending on the type of exercise, exercise intensity, and other unknown factors.
🌟Fun fact: faster ultra-marathoners report less overall pain during an ultra-marathon than slower ultra-marathoners, likely due to them experiencing an amplified effect of this phenomenon.
🌟Obviously if you are experiencing pain or injury related to that specific exercise, it is recommended that you see a physical therapist before returning to that activity.

Speaking of handstands, this little flow is a nice way to build strength and stability through the shoulder girdle.
5 rounds of inchworm to 5 Push Ups to 5 scapular Push Ups (protraction/retraction) to a 10 second extended plank. As I demonstrated in full realness, the 10 second extended plank is something to work up to 😂 but challenges abdominal strength like you haven’t experienced! Another note: try to maintain a neutral spine throughout in order to ensure you are maintaining activation of the abdominals. Although I am engaging my abs, my excessive lumbar lordosis present at rest makes my “neutral spine” look less flat than someone who may be able to engage in a posterior pelvic tilt/reduced lordosis. ————————————————

Today’s videos are made for @mattshlink and anyone that has Tennis Elbow 🎾 or lateral epicondylitis. @mattshlink was explaining to me that his case is very minor and feels just a little popping and grinding feeling when bench pressing 🏋🏽‍♂️. So I came up with a few videos to help @mattshlink with this issue and have him feeling great again.
(Video 1)
- You will start with a wrist active range of motion exercise which is to warm up those muscles to be ready to stretch. Since this is a warm up exercise just do 10 reps up and 10 reps down for a total of 20 reps 🎾.
(Video 2)
- You will be doing a wrist extensor stretch. Fully extend your arm then you want to have your fingers pointed downward to the ground. Then push them in toward your body and rotate your wrist making your pinky pointing up toward the sky. Doing so will definitively give you a good stretch. Do this stretch for 30 seconds then release give yourself 20 seconds to have the muscles reset then hold for another 30 seconds do this 3 times.
(Video 3)
- You will be doing wrist extensions with a weight. This will require a two pound dumbbell 💪🏽. This exercise is not rushed it’s controlled you want to do 8-12 reps of and a total of 3 sets.
(Video 4)
- Here you can use a dumbbell if not I prefer a hammer I feel it works better and you want to do the same thing 3 sets 8-12 reps each.
(Video 5)
- You will be doing a soft tissue rollout with a bouncy ball to get rid of the scar tissue. When rolling make sure to get in there and hit all areas not just where it hurts.
- Make sure that you follow the R.I.C.E Method because this will speed up the healing process if you are not sure what that is I have a post that I can tag you in.
- Also I recommended to stay away from bench pressing for 2 weeks because you may cause more inflammation which won’t allow the body to heal the way it’s suppose to.

🔊VOLUME UP 🔊 You can hear my ankle crack/pop. Honestly I was scared and thought I broke something. There was a hole in the ground that I did not see which caused my ankle to buckle. Thank the lord I am doing ok I am just feeling sore and will be having some more videos soon.

@emuregns this is your second post but note these don’t attempt just yet I would give yourself two weeks of you doing the exercises from the first post. This will allow you to gain the strength you need.

These are 5lbs dumbbells and when doing them don’t do more than 12 reps. Doing so will result in negative results.

A few days ago I had another Instagram follower dm to see if I can help with their problem. @emuregns was telling me that he feels cracking sensation in his shoulders mainly when doing over head press or anything about the head. This problem comes from the scapula and many people have this issue. The way to cure this is to strengthen the scapula. So I will be making two post for @emuregns the first post is a group of exercises that will help strengthen the scapula with bands something that can be bought on amazon or any sporting store. I hope this was helpful let me know what you think I will be checking on you in a few weeks.
When doing these do two sets of each exercise and 8-12 reps on each.

I had @Anil_b_adiguzel dm last week and he had explained to me that he has tight hips and that they would snap as well. First I would like to start by explain his issue. So to correctly label this he has snapping syndrome or also known as dancers hip. So basically your tendon is rubbing against your greater trochanter. So here I have came up with a few things he can do to help him.
-🔥So here I have 3 videos one being a simple band workout to strengthen the hip flexors. The other video being some nice foam roller exercises. The last video being stretches to loser up the hip flexors.🔥
-🏋🏽‍♂️When foam rolling this is more of a feel thing. You want to target all the areas of the leg.🏋🏽‍♂️
-💪🏽When doing the band exercises do anywhere from 6-12 reps and no more than 3 sets of each.💪🏽
-🧘🏽‍♂️When stretching hold every stretch for 20-30 seconds make sure to not over stretch.🧘🏽‍♂️

Here I had @Greggibson92 dm me a few days ago about an issue he had. He was explaining to me how he has quadriceps tendonitis and has not squatted or done any training for his legs due to this. He was then wondering if I had any stretches or exercises for him to do. Below is what will be best for him in his case.
-(🔥1 Video🔥) Here in video one I have a lacrosse ball. What you will be doing is self massage, self acupressure, and self mobilization to break down those adhesions and promote circulation. So you want to place the lacrosse ball right above your knee cap. From there you want to feel out which areas are tight/painful and roll it out. You can also place the ball at a point on the muscle and do a leg curl which will cause the muscle to work itself. Be sure to also roll out the entire part of the quadricep all the to the hip. When doing this spend 3-5 minutes on each leg be sure you don’t over work it then you can cause stress. You may feel sore the next morning that’s fine like the soreness go away give your self about two days then do it again.
-(🔥Video 2 & 3🔥)
💪🏽Wall sits
💪🏽Single leg walk sits
💪🏽Lunge ups
💪🏽Seated squat ups from chair
💪🏽Single leg ups from chair
-(🔥Video 4 are stretches🔥)
🧘🏽‍♂️Laying down leg pull one knee leg pull
🧘🏽‍♂️Standing leg pull
🧘🏽‍♂️Lunge press downward

Honestly don’t recall where I got this video but this is such a great representation of what happens when you lift something the wrong way. I have probably watched this video 30 times that’s how good it is.

🔥Ending the week with posts of the people who make physical therapy great, the patients.🔥
🏋🏻‍♀️: @amymortensen have a wonderful season at @rollinswsoccer! You have come a long way to your recovery, but it doesn't stop now. Continue to improve, work hard and give it your all and you will do amazing things. It was a pleasure to work with you as your therapist and glad that I was able to gain a friend in the process. Remember we still be yo race! 🙏👐

First Clinical in the books! Altamonte AC is where it's at! If I ever find myself with AMS, acute angina, and a sacral ulcer bigger than my face I'll be admitting myself here... Greater as a whole... Riiight? 😏

I tried speaking during this video - was it helpful, or do you guys prefer just reading the description?
Over the past few days I’ve covered strategies for improving passive motion of your hips through the 90-90 stretch and a few foam roller techniques.
Today I want to talk about how to actually access and control all your available motion. You may have passive motion in your hip that you aren’t using, which is just a waste.
We’ll start by controlling rotation in a seated position. You goal with this drill is to keep your body locked and motionless while you painstakingly rotate your hips back and forth.
If you notice you keep getting stuck at a particular point, you may need to go back to the passive strategies like rolling or the 90-90 stretch.
Tips on form:
1️⃣ Put your fists out and imagine you’re holding 100 lbs; work really hard to keep your hands in place as you move.
2️⃣ Keep your heels firmly planted on the ground as you rotate.
3️⃣ Drive the rotation by leading with your knees.

Confidence. Pride. Courage. Swag. Sureness. Poise.
Depending on who you asked in my life and when you asked them, these are all words they may have used to describe me. Or at least the face I put out there. To be fair, I’ve always been the optimistic, encouraging, “you-can-do-it!” kinda person, so it makes sense that I became a personal trainer, strength coach, and PT. I was a decent athlete by many standards, an above average musician, and an above average student. I didn’t really “struggle” much for anything until the end of high school and college. Between school, church, and the gym my confidence was rarely challenged.
I’ll never forget walking on for the track team and going to the first workout with the throwing team. I was completely rocked by how much better and stronger everyone else was and the fact I wouldn’t be competitive for the school until my senior year.
Seeing my peers that seemed “smarter” or better than me throughout college and PT school also affected my ego because I never felt like I was “good enough” (whatever that means). It wasn’t until I had my worst evaluation on my last clinical rotation when my CI sat me down and said something to the effect of: “You know your stuff. So own it. Always be confident, but never sure. What you don’t know, go invest the time to learn not to be more right, but to be less wrong.”
My goal is to provide information to patients and clients based on the least amount of bias possible. There is a lot I don’t know but I am willing to learn and admit where I’m wrong. I’m still learning what that balance of confidence and sureness is but I do know this:
Confidence isn’t dependent on a number on a scale, your social media footprint, your age, your race, your orientation, weight on a barbell, or how many random scientific facts you can spout. It comes down to the intersection of all those factors and being secure and content in saying “This is me”.
My hope is that I can help others embrace who they are and where they wanna go. That’s the vision of The Human Movement. Be #antifragile. Be #betterhumans. (- @thehumanmovementrehab) #TheLevelUpInitiative #ChallengeYourselfCampaign

The importance of “Mentorship”
Mentoring is not just for new graduates and novice clinicians but for all clinicians
Whether you are studying for a certification exam, interested in teaching, publication, public speaking or trying to grow your practice, having a mentor can be crucial for continued success!
Mentors allow you to bounce ideas around together, collaborating and working as a team. Mentorship fosters an environment of excellence; both the mentor and the mentee wish to learn from each other. A mentor does not have to be older than you or have worked more years than you, but should have more expertise in the area that could help you
I have numerous mentors in my life. Some personal and many professional
Who are your mentors? What areas in your professional career can this benefit? Have you considered this before?

Let me be real. I never saw myself starting my own side business. I have a great degree, went to school forever 😆, and don’t ever plan on fully leaving PT. But let me tell you what I was wanting... Having a great degree also comes with a hefty out of state price tag, so I’ve been drowning in student loan debt before I even started my first big girl job. It is no joke. I always wanted SOME sort of way to make some extra money to put toward those, because I don’t want to be paying them off until I’m 50 🤷🏻‍♀️ But I always thought, I’m way too busy with working full time, trying to adult, and have somewhat of a social life, I never even considered looking into anything. ESPECIALLY online, as I found myself annoyed at those types of people 😆

The last year and a half of doing this, though, I’ve learned a significant amount of why I love this and how I’m able to fit it into MY busy life. ✌️Working HAS To Be On My Schedule
Look, I work 6-8 hours a day, 5 days a week as a PT. Used to commute 2 hours one way while doing all of this. I squeeze it in when I can, in small blocks of the day. I counted how much time I used to spend just “scrolling the feed” and replaced that with getting things done 🤷🏻‍♀️ ✌️My Time Needs To Be Effective
I never wanted to work an 8 hour day at my day job, let me just be honest 🙈 This has actually ALLOWED me to change positions and jobs, specifically to decrease my weekly PT hours. I can put in time online when it suits my schedule. ✌️ I Love Helping Others
I obviously do this during the day too, but with paperwork, documentation, pressure & productivity standards as a clinician, sometimes it’s not as fulfilling as I feel it could be. It wasn't until I found a place where I felt like I could truly be MYSELF, broken, hot mess Chelsea and all, did I see what I was lacking in my life. It’s made me work, not only physically, but mentally, and my hope is to give that back in return to others. It’s given me back the power that I am not a victim to my circumstances in life 😭

By far the most fulfilling thing I’ve ever been a part of 💜

Nice post by @rehabscience !
“Leg length inequality (LLI) is a measurement that is taken by many rehabilitation professionals when patients present with various lower quarter conditions. However, we must ask ourselves if these inequalities are truly associated with pain and/or impaired function and, if so, how much of an inequality must exist before we see problems.
According to the review study below, which examined studies on LLI from 1970-2005, LLI was found to exist in 90% of the population. In fact, on average most of us have a LLI of 5.2 mm (1/5”) and suffer no negative consequences.
Furthermore, seven studies in the review compared asymptomatic (no pain) individuals with people who had symptoms somewhere in the kinetic chain (knee, hip, and low back) and found that there was no statistically significant difference in leg length (5.1 mm versus 5.2 mm). These results suggest that average LLI is not correlated with painful lower quarter issues.
So, when might a LLI matter? Well, it appears that a LLI of >20 mm (3/4”) may be associated with the development of knee osteoarthritis and/or low back pain. A LLI <20 mm can usually be compensated for by passive structural changes, whereas, a LLI >20 mm may result in active muscular compensation and, potentially, pain.
So, don’t stress if you are told you have a LLI since almost everyone else also has one. If you have a larger inequality and lower quarter pain, consider seeking help from a rehabilitation practitioner.
