MOST RECENT

Hip weakness has been shown in research to have association with lower extremity running-related overuse injuries, particularly weakness of the hip abductors. The hip abductors are the muscles on the side of your hip which are responsible for moving your leg straight out to the side when your leg is not on the ground. More related to running, these muscles are responsible for controlling your pelvis position when your foot is on the ground.

Weak hip abductors have been linked to increased incidence of IT band syndrome and patellofemoral pain (pain around/under the knee cap), while stronger than normal hip abductors have been shown to reduce the risk of lower extremity overuse injuries.

2 exercises which have the greatest strengthening effect on the abductors are the single leg squat and the side plank.

The keys to the single leg squat include maintaining a level pelvis throughout the movement, and to keep the knee in line with the hip and ankle (DO NOT let the knee fall inward towards the other leg). The side plank should be performed with the body in a straight line, without rotation of the hips, and keeping the hips from dropping towards the floor. The hip abductors of the leg on the bottom are the ones being worked. For a progression, try lifting the top leg.

Continue to check back on Mondays as I address all things running including overuse injury risk reduction, strengthening, mechanics, and more!

🇦🇺 I recently got asked how to prepare an athlete for situations where they are exposed to contact from another player. While we can’t necessarily prevent ACL injuries from a dodgy slide-tackle, for example, we can help prepare athletes to demonstrate proper biomechanics in risky situations. Check out this awesome post from the land down under! 🇦🇺

Did you know that one of the most common ways to injure the ACL is to get a bump from an opponent in the air prior to landing, or getting a bump prior to changing direction?
.
It's referred to the "Indirect Contact" mechanism of injury, and accounts for up to 50% of all "Non-Contact" ACL injuries (Stuelcken et al, 2016). One way to prepare for "Indirect Contact" injuries, and the unpredictable nature of sport, is via perturbation drills. These type of drills as shown in the video would be appropriate for primary injury prevention programs and late stage ACL reconstruction rehab.

Located in the turbulent Pacific “ Ring of Fire,” Papua New Guinea is the 11th most disaster-prone country in the world.

The country faces risks of recurring floods, earthquakes, drought, volcanic eruptions and, increasingly, rising sea levels.

For International Day for Disaster Reduction, we want to remember everyone that has already been through a natural disaster and recognize how we can reduce the risk again in the future. As we have been rebuliding schools in Nepal that were destroyed during the earthquake of 2015, we ensure that they are built back stronger and that people know how to respond in such situations. ⠀

Having a warm, safe place to be out of the elements is critical to a family's ability to begin recovering from disaster. On this International Day for Disaster Reduction, we join the humanitarian community in striving to reduce risks people affected by disasters face by giving them the tools to start rebuilding their lives.

ACL Rehab
——-
This is definitely a topic I feel is under addressed in rehab. This can be a scary topic when I tell my athletes what we’re doing but they gradually overcome their fears with graded exposure. This should 100% be done with a medical professional and when they are physically ready.
——-
We know the majority of tears are non-contact. This means the mechanism of injury can likely be reduced with proper exercises. I always make sure to ask what they were doing when they suffered the initial injury. Many people suffer a tear when making a cut in a game or in practice. I firmly believe it’s necessary to gradually put the athlete in that exact situation numerous times so they are 100% confident when they return to sports. If this goes unaddressed, it will cause them to freeze up when that same scenario comes up. Athletes need to be confident in their movements and exposing them to a movement will get them to overcome their fears.
——-
For example, a soccer player may tear their ACL while running after an opponent and coming to a sudden stop to change direction. I would have them do this over and over again with me, until they show they are confident in this task.

Researchers have developed a new way to model seismic risk they have called 'ensemble modelling' which they hope will better inform natural disaster risk reduction planning in earthquake-prone areas ➡️https://buff.ly/2Pa1AOm ⠀

While it's impossible to completely eliminate the potential for workplace accidents, a professional safety assessment is the starting point for your best defense against risk.

🏋🏻‍♂️ Far too often when athletes get injured the recommendation they are given is to rest. But simple modifications can be made to keep the athlete moving AND encourage faster healing. That is what we will be looking at all week!
.
This image is from @rethinkingphysiotherapy and comes from research in the tendinopathy world but translates well to muscle strains as well.
.
👍🏻 Pain between 0-2/10 is a green light...keep going.
💥 4-5/10 is acceptable. 🛑 for pain greater than a 5/10.
.
Using this stoplight analogy is great for monitoring response during but be sure to pay attention to what happens after training as well!
.
If pain is elevated the next day, that is usually a sign tissues were loaded a bit beyond what they were ready for and we would lighten the load next time.
.
This obviously isn’t a black and white issue and will take some self-investigation and discussions with your medical provider but I hope will begin to get your 🧠 working on principles to use to stay active while rehabbing and injury!
