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. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What can you do or who can you spend time with this week that is guaranteed to make you smile? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hint if you cannot think of something/someone, we love to laugh at Kinetic Physiotherapy ;)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

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.

Myofascial Release and Hydration of the Plantar Fascia:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2. Place the small RAD ball on the medial (inside) part of your arch, repeat above movements
3. Place the small RAD ball on the lateral (outer) part of your arch, repeat above movements.
4. Place the medium RAD ball on the anterior (front) part of your heel, ball of your foot on the floor, keep equal weight and roll it side to side. Then move the ball back a little and do the same. Then move a little more quickly. Hold.
5. Now moving the ball in one direction from toes to heel along outer foot, middle foot and inside foot.
6. Now move the ball all around.
7. Plant both feet, close your eyes, and notice the difference.

Be patient. When in pain or discomfort it can be easy to become frustrated and upset. Some people have a longer road to recovery than others and that’s just the way it is. So take it one step at a time, make time for you. Thank your body for all it’s done for you today and everyday, and maybe find time for a little TLC.

At Kinetic Physiotherapy we believe in creating a holistic approach to our assessments and treatments. Too often the body is not regarded as a whole, but more as separate parts, therefore only the areas of pain or concern are addressed. Fusing Eastern and Western medicine, our patients will heal on a multi-faceted level.

My favourite little guy/diffuser from @sajewellness 😊 it’s a nice addition in the home or treatment room!
.
.
I know several RMTs that are really into the effects and benefits of essential oils and how they can help with pain, better sleep, infection, digestion, stress, and so much more!
.
.
And they smell nice 👍
.
.
Here are some basics I have read from the @doterra website:
•Cardamom: can assist with gastrointestinal and respiratory health
.
•Peppermint: can help you to feel refreshed and awake, and deter insects
.
•Frankincense: can soothe skin and provide a calming effect on emotion
.
•Lavender: can help with relaxation and promote better sleep
.
•Eucalyptus: can promote clear breathing and relaxation
.

UPPER CROSSED SYNDROME:
These days many people -especially those working at desks- may face a potential Upper Crossed Syndrome.
.
.
What is it? What happens is, due to our poor hunched over posture over time we develop tight chest muscles (pectoralis major/minor), short and tight muscles at the base of the skull, neck, and shoulders (suboccipitals, levator scapula, upper trapezius). And we develop weak and lengthened muscles between our shoulder blades (rhomboids) and weak neck flexors.
.
.
Something like this causes a forward head posture due to muscle imbalance and creates pain in the neck and back, headaches, rounded shoulders, etc.
.
.
Patients can find relief with massage therapy to combat this in combination with great chest stretches and back strengthening!
.
.
If anyone is interested @kineticphysio will be hosting a FREE postural workshop on Tuesday!

Cold and compression are important post-surgery and injury. This will help to reduce pain and swelling, reduce muscle spasms, enhance lymphatic function, encourage cellular oxygen supply, and stimulate tissue repair. This fancy unit combines both; however, an ice bag and tensor bandage can easily be used at home ❄️❄️❄️
_____________________
🔹15 to 20 minutes of ice in order to get a deep cooling while avoiding cold sensitivity

Acute management: Use the P.R.I.C.E protocol for the first 24-72 hours 🔹Protection: prevent further injury by using crutches, splints, braces, and avoiding infection 🔹Rest: ‘relative rest’ is important for healing. You should avoid activities that stress the injured area to the point of pain. Some movement is beneficial. Gentle pain-free range of motion and basic isometric contractions may be indicated 🔹Ice: cold treatments will minimize swelling and reduce pain 🔹Compression: use a compression wrap or tensor to minimize swelling and provide mild support 🔹Elevation: keep injured area above heart level to prevent pooling of fluid, decrease swelling and pain #physiotherapy #acutecare #surgery #recovery #kineticphysio

💯 A massive thank you to the Kinetic team, our clients and our community who have supported this girls dream of owning a clinic whos soul purpose is to help as many people as possible recover from injuries optimally and prevent them from reoccurance or happening in the first place.

I wanted a space that felt like home for all those who entered. A fun environment where clients look forward to coming for treatment.
We take pride in being the best manual practitioners we can be, using evidence to support our clinical decisions. Our team continues to attend courses to provide the best and most effective care we can. We provide a unique and customized approach to our rehabilitation.

Thank you, all of you!

Meditation:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This week can you commit to 5 mins a day of meditation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Meditation helps clear your mind from the constant chatter, increase focus and clarity, change our minds from negative to positive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Find a comfortable position, you may need to prop yourself up on a folded blanket or block. Sit up tall, close your eyes. Take deep inhales and exhales and just focus on the sound of your breath.
