One test to see how healthy the ankle and foot are is being able to sit back on your heels with the ankle flush against the floor and have no symptoms.
...
The picture is an example of an abnormal test. The main cause of this restriction is adhesion in the ankle and lower leg.
...
If you can't do this test and are having ankle and foot issues you need further testing, diagnosis and treatment of adhesion.

Limited quadriceps muscle flexibility is often caused by adhesion.

The best sleep position during pregnancy is “SOS” (sleep on side). Even better is to sleep on your left side.

I just got settled into my hotel up in Boston and was taking time to do my #grateful reflection for the day. I am up here for some training and more importantly some much needed treatment for myself by the founder and creator of the #integrativediagnosis system Dr. Brady. I am so grateful for all his given me and taught me over the years.

In today’s episode of the #dailyknowledgeproject we are going to shed some light on a very important concept.... Why you can’t fix adhesion with a lacrosse ball!

It blows my mind sometimes to see the lengths people will go to try to “fix” their own injury by jamming a lacrosse ball in any area of the body that hurts.

This whole concept is a really bad idea and actually will do more harm than good.

This doesn’t stop people from trying to smash or bash the adhesion with the lacrosse ball with agonizing pain and then some more pain on top of that just for good measure.

So most people say to me that I blow things out of proportion and doing some self treatment really can't hurt.
The issue here is using the word treatment, that doesn't apply when you use a lacrosse ball.

Yes it can go under the category of maintenance, but once you are injured the idea of self treatment actually goes away.

But that doesn't stop people from smashing and bashing away.

The big problem is that when you do use the lacrosse ball you do get a temporary window where the muscles feel looser and you can do more activity, the problem is it just exposed the dysfunction even further.

In many cases I see in my office people usually delayed the window of opportunity for conservative care to work because they mitigated the symptoms with the lacrosse ball, but didn't actually improve any function.

Any treatment that improves only pain and not function is always dangerous.

Function is king!

Don't wait to get your problem fixed. The only thing worse than where you are now is where you are headed. We have a window of opportunity to help before it's too late. The next step is surgery.

In today’s #muscleoftheday we have the subboccipital muscles, which are known as the rectus capitis posterior major and minor.

These muscles are a really big deal in overall neck function and really get beat up with our bad postures and never-ending checking of our phones.

They get loaded up with adhesion big time!

Adhesion in these muscles can cause some major problems:

Neck pain.

Tension.

Headaches.

Migraines.
Just overall stiffness.

Why do these muscles get so much adhesion?

Because we spend the majority or our lives sitting and looking down!

This really beats these muscles up and cause so much neck dysfunction.

When these muscles have adhesion it causes the lower part of the neck and muscles down there to have to over work to make up the lack of stability.

This leads to that never-ending tight spot or know in your upper trap that you jam on with a lacrosse ball or have your massage therapist try to destroy.

Only to have it come back a few days later!

What gives?

The problem is the muscles up top, when they don't work it causes a trickle down effect into the neck and everything else just gets beat up.

In really bad situations adhesion in these muscles can also trigger migraines and trust me if you suffer from them they are no joke.

So if you have headaches, neck tension or never-ending stiffness in the neck it might be time to get these muscles checked and fixed by an expert!

Adhesion is a big deal and luckily is reversible with expert diagnosis and treatment with doctors trained in the Integrative Diagnosis System.

In today’s #dailyknowledgeproject are continuing our series all week on the importance of adhesion and all the problems it can cause if left untreated.

Today I wanted to cover a really honest truth about why doctors don’t actually diagnose or treat adhesion.... It’s pretty simple... Because its actually pretty hard to do and take a tremendous amount of skills to do the job right. There are a lot of practitioners out there claiming they are treating adhesion, but the fact of the matter is they aren't even coming close.

People usually are way too compressive when trying to treat adhesion, often doing more harm than good.

We have gotten into this mindset that if a treatment hurts like hell that it must in fact be rather effective.

Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

That horrible and tremendous pain you feel when someone goes really “deep” on the muscle is actually your bodies way of saying please stop that right now.

When treatment is done right and effectively it should be a “hurts, but good” kind of feel. Never excruciating, if it hurts too much the doctor isn't very good at what they are doing.

Treating and removing adhesion is a fine skill that takes a long time to get good at and unfortunately most people aren't willing to put the time and effort into training that is required to be an expert at this.

The people that suffer the most are the injured ones out there because without effective treatment their problem will just get worse over time.

So if you are currently working with a doctor to solve your problem and they think they are effectively treating adhesion and you keep going back, it might be time to realize they aren't the one to fix your problem.

Not everyone is going to like what you do or what you have to offer; however, if you can't see yourself doing anything else, and you have the drive and ambition, get the training and go for it #PhysicalTherapy #Acupuncture #Massage

Limited quadriceps muscle flexibility is often caused by adhesion.

We live in a world of instant gratification and quick solutions. However, this doesn't apply to your body. By the time you feel enough pain or symptoms to seek outside help, you have a big problem. In order to fix your problem, you need an expert, and you need to be patient.

There is nothing wrong with CrossFit, Running, Biking, Yoga, Sitting, Swimming, Pilates, or any other activity.
...
It becomes a problem when your load of those activities exceeds your bodies capacity to adapt to the stresses and you choose to ignore the problem.
...
This requires you to not ignore your injuries.
...
This requires you to invest in a provider that respects pathology, mobility, and load management.
...
This requires you to check your ego at the door and only train according to your current level of fitness and athletic ability.
...
This requires you to find ways to not sit all day.
...
This requires admitting that maybe your activity is the cause of your problem and you need to slow your roll.

The future of conservative healthcare is happening right now. It happens in our office everyday. Out with the old, and in with the new. And it all means better results for you.

Everyone has a position to play, make sure your team has your future self in mind. When your team stays in their lane you benefit the most.

Do you Have trouble turning to look while driving because the pain in your neck is too sharp?
...
Are you always waking up with a stiff neck or back for the first few hours in the morning or longer?
...
Does your back hurt when you bend over?
Do you notice pain after getting up from sitting?
...
Do you have pain down your arm or leg?
...
Do you always have muscle spasms in your back after a hard workout or waking up in the morning?
...
Do you constantly have your back "go out" for a few days?
...
The above scenarios are all signs of a current or impending disc injury.
...
The most common type of disc injury are disc tears and often won't involve nerve symptoms. Poor posture, repetitive work movements, and overuse are all equal partners in damaging discs. They put increased pressure on discs causing them to wear down and eventually tear. This is like an egg yolk.
...
The outer layers of discs in our spine are made of dense cartilage that provides structure and support. The inner layer is the egg yolk and has similar characteristics to Jell-O. This inner layer becomes worn down and will eventually begin to leak through and tear the outer layers--causing pain.
...
Steps to prevent and slow the progression of a disc injury:

1. Avoid poor posture, excessive sitting, bending or twisting. So yes, that means sit-ups are bad for your discs.

2. Getting muscle adhesion treated by someone specifically trained like Dr. Nottoli. The most common reason discs become damaged is from muscle adhesion, which is a glue-like substance that sticks muscles, ligaments, and nerves together. Adhesion decreases muscle flexibility which puts increased pressure on the discs they surround--much like a nutcracker or vice grip.

3. Once adhesion has been removed and treated and mobility has been restored you must have adequate strength in the areas that you stress the most that caused the disc to be damaged in the first place.
...
Most disc injuries do not require surgery but if you don't get the right treatment or diagnosis they will progress quickly and cause problems (Tiger Woods, Steve Kerr, recent people in the news).
...
Let Dr. Nottoli give you an accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Would you want your surgeon to use a scalpel or a butter knife? The difference is in the results. Our doctors use IAR vs. other soft-tissue instruments to give patients the best results. Our doctors are the ONLY providers in Lake County certified to use IAR...and it's the only soft-tissue instrument on the market made to reduce #adhesion (scar tissue). Adhesion is the most common reason for restricted mobility, pain, and speeds up degeneration. Call the experts at 224-206-7050. Website in the bio has more info.

It takes a little little longer to warm up while exercising... It takes a little longer to "get going" in the morning... the pain that you only felt for a few minutes every other day is now there most of the day.... Your body is trying to tell you something, do yourself a favor and listen.

Does your doctor/physio/massage therapist/body worker measure your mobility every time you see them? If not, how do they know your problem is really getting better? Your health is not guesswork, or trial and error. You deserve better.
Get your diagnosis.
Get treatment.
Get fixed.

In today’s episode we want to go more into depth about a really important and completely misunderstood concept when it comes to having a musculoskeletal injury.

What we are talking about is called adhesion. Some people refer to it as scar tissue, but I prefer to use the word adhesion because you can actually get it without a direct injury at all, so using scar tissue can be counterproductive.

So what is adhesion?

Adhesion is like glue that gets into your muscles and keeps them from being able to stretch and contract like they are supposed to.

This can lead to pain and a lot of weakness as well.
Recently adhesion has gotten some good attention out there, unfortunately its from people who are pretenders that really have no true understanding of how to find or fix adhesion.

The problem with having adhesion for too long is that it can speed up degeneration to the discs, cartilage and joints, leading to bigger problems down the road.

So if you have ever wondered any of the following:

Why are my muscles so tight?

Why do I have pain when I exercise?

Why does my neck hurt all the time?

Why do I tight hips?

Why does my low back ache all the time?

Why can’t I ever seem to loosen up with stretching?

You can 95 percent blame adhesion for all of this!
The issue with adhesion is that it usually doesn't show up on standard XRAY or MRI, so a lot of doctors don’t even look for it.

So if you have been injured for a long time, failed physical therapy or chiropractic, had surgery that didn't work or just tired of being in pain it might be time to find a doctor who specializes in finding and fixing adhesion.
