Single Leg Lower
.
The single leg lower is one of the more effective exercises for maximum gluteus maximus muscle firing. .
Proper firing of the gluteal muscle group is necessary to ensure good biomechanics of the lower back and entire lower body during walking, exercising or everyday tasks such as bending and lifting. .
The single leg lower is great to include in the later stages of rehabilitation from low back or lower body injury. It is also great to include in any workout or training routine to help with alignment of the pelvis, hips, knees and ankles.

Proprioception.
.
Is the sense of the relative position of one's own parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement. (Wikipedia)
.
Lateral ankle sprains are very common athletic injuries and the recurrence rates still remain fairly high.
.
A study reviewing the proprioceptive training in reducing ankle re-injury in male soccer players (Am J Sports Med. 2007 Jun;35(6):922-6. Epub 2007 Mar 22). The results indicate that the proprioceptive training group had significantly less ankle re-injuries in comparison to the control group.

You cannot buy happiness.
But you can get a massage.
Which is pretty much the same thing.

Fascia.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fascia is a dense connective tissue, mainly made up of collagen fibers, that attach, stabilize, enclose and separate structures within your body.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fascia is flexible and can withstand a great deal of force. When in a health state it has the ability to be resilient and contribute to injury prevention.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is important to keep this tissue healthy so it can function optimally. Myofascial Release is a technique that can be performed by a manual practitioner and/or yourself, to help keep these tissues in a healthy state.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Spinal Stabilization with movement progressions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many do not think about this, but when we are on the move, there is a constant shift or migration of muscle activity being carried out. Some areas are creating the movement, while others are providing stability. This requires a responsive motor control, proper force transmission through our connective tissue, muscle capacity and resiliency. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are recovering from an injury, it is best that you have a good healthcare practitioner that can assess what it is YOU need for body, the injury, and where you are along the spectrum of exercise progressions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A progression from isometric exercises to moving limbs helps challenge the system, aiding in return to sport or activity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

. They are finally here and available @kineticphysio! . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
RAD rounds are a great tool for self myofascial release. Although these techniques have been around for a long time, research on the importance of working on fascia is increasing. It could be the missing link for stability, mobility, pain and healing. .
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fascia is connective tissue, mainly made up of collagen, that surrounds and encapsulates every muscle fiber and group, internal organs, and interconnects everything. .
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Wellness Advisory Services states, “As soon as there is dysfunction or pain in one area, the body adapts and compensates to keep the body upright and work without causing pain. As it does this the fascia will shorten or tighten in areas because the muscles cannot hold the extra tension alone. Posture changes to accommodate this.” . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The RAD collection are designed to get in there and get the job done, releasing and mobilizing restricted fascia in every direction. @radrollerteam ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Self Myofascial Release for your Piriformis.
.
This one is a good one 👌🏻
.
Hold the ball on a tender area for a minimum of 1min. Deep breaths to allow the ball to sink to deeper layers. Stay there and/or you can roll from side to side along the direction of the tissue fibers.
.
If you feel sharp or referring pain move the ball over slightly to either side.
.
I like following this release with supine cow face (piriformis stretch).

🙌 Clients are almost here and we are excited to help them achieve their goals!

Laughter is Medicine!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Laughing helps decrease stress by releasing "feel good" hormones. When endorphins are released, its promotes an overall sense of wellbeing and can temporarily rid the body of pain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Try these techniques to hydrate and decrease carpal tunnel symptoms.

1. Prayer Stretch:
Sitting up tall, shoulders back. Place your plans together in a prayer position. Elbows wide. Hold for 1-2 mins.

2. Wrist Flexor Stretch:
Place one arm straight in front of you. Palm facing up. Extend your wrist back, and grasp that hand with your other hand to allow your wrist to gently go further into this stretch. Hold 1-2 mins.

3. Myofascial Release:
Place an acuball (or tennis ball) under your forearm, slowly roll out your wrist flexors from elbow to wrist. Place the ball under your palm and gently roll the Palmer fascia.

THE BENEFITS OF WATER 💧
.
If you’ve been treated by myself, and many other RMT‘s you’ll hear me say at the end of treatment “make sure to drink plenty of water”.
.
Why is this? I like to keep the answer simple. Your muscles work and feel the best when they are hydrated!💪
.
*Water is essential for the body to sweat and release toxins.
.
*It cleanses toxic waste and carries it to the liver and kidneys for filtration and removal.
.
*Water lubricates joints and lessens discomfort from arthritis, back pain, etc.
.
*Water hydrates the skin (especially after this dry winter 🙄).
.
*Water allows for efficient cell function and repair, which is essential for recovery!
.
*Water allows red blood cells to carry oxygen more efficiently, allowing for better muscle function overall.
