I'm really grateful for the opportunity to work with search accomplished athletes who are also such AMAZING people
Working in the medical tent not only do you get to contribute to the well-being of these athletes so they can perform their BEST, but you also have the opportunity to get to know them a bit
To me it's really interesting because during competition when these athletes are on their playing field they're MONSTERS, they're GLADIATORS...
But behind-the-scenes they're some of the most friendly, most humble people you'll ever meet. They're so appreciative, so personable! They're here to have fun and to play the game they love
Let's talk Glutes🍑
📝Here are four exercises that are sure to help you feel your glutes!
📒The poor glutes get blamed for so many things. Bad knees? Glutes. Bad back? Glutes won't fire. Unstable ankles? Look up the chain. Glutes.
📚Some of this might be overstated, however, there are definitely some people who have trouble not over tensing their back when they want to use their Glutes and extend their hips. Everyone has different movement strategies.
🖊For these people it can be extremely helpfu to emphasize spinal flexion along with glute and hip extension movement. This is why @bretcontreras1 teaches the forward gaze and posterior pelvic tilt with the hip thrust.
✅The movements above all have small tweaks designed to emphasize some spinal flexion along with the hip extension. This is why I'm lying down over top of a bench, leaning forward, and flexing my opposite hip in these exercises. Try these tricks if you can't feel your glutes.

Kinesiology tape is another sports and injury device that has appeared on the market in great force over the last few years, but what is it and what is it supposed to do? 🤔🤔The answer is actually quite different from what most people would expect!😳The theory behind kinesiology taping is that the tape (when applied correctly) gently lifts the layer of skin and tissue beneath that covers an underlying muscle so that blood and other body fluids can have an increased free motion in and around that muscle. 💪🏾As research has shown greater blood flow to an area can decrease pain, keep a joint or muscle mobile (warm), and improve recovery time. ✅📚This is quite the opposite to the traditional method of taping designed to brace, restrict motion to an area, and provide support to a joint and/or muscle. 🙌🏾Kinesiology tape takes the opposite approach, it is applied on top of an injured/strained area to provide stabilization, but the muscle or tendon is never encircled with a ring of tape. 🚫As movement of the affected area occurs, the tape, skin and fascia overlying the muscle/tendon move, pulling it in an opposite direction to the muscle, thus, making space for lymphatic fluid to move around and clean up the inflamed tissue.👊🏾 The main functions of kinesiology tape are to
1️⃣Support the muscle
2️⃣Remove congestion of bodily fluid flow
3️⃣Activate the endogenous analgesic system (pain relief)
4️⃣Joint problem correction
Kinesiology tape is very thin and breathable to the skin. 👍🏾The sticky side uses a water repellant medical grade adhesive.✅ 💦The tape can actually stay on for 3-4 days through sweating and showering. 💪🏾Waterproof tapes have also been created for use on hands and feet.🏋🏾💪🏾
You can accomplish more in 30 seconds of deliberate mobility with full relaxation than 2 minutes of mobility all tensed up. Work smarter, not harder. Thanks to @themovementmaestro for the gem below!⠀
"DM #423 : Stop working against yourself and start listening to your body.⠀
When you hold your breath like that, you tell your nervous system “this isn’t safe.” You increase sympathetic drive (flight or fight), and your nervous system just wants to get you the hell out of there. So, if you’re trying to gain more mobility or lock in a new movement, telling your nervous system you’re not safe isn’t the best way to go about things.⠀
If ya wanna get nerdy, holding your breath and increasing sympathetic drive will not only cause those tissues to tense up because of that flight or fight reflex, you’ll get an increase in the fascial tone secondary to an increase in the production of TGF Beta-1. This cytokine causes contraction of myofibroblasts (smooth muscle like cells embedded within the fascia), which means your aggressive attempts at relaxing your tissues are actually causing them to get tighter. Remember, that nervous system of yours just wants to feel safe.⠀
Folks will say, “but when i stop I feel better.” Yeah, because you didn’t die. Your nervous system is letting out a sigh of relief and relaxing those tissues because the threat is gone. Perhaps you should consider skipping all that punishment and just jump to the good stuff. Convince the nervous system. Don’t force it.⠀
Paying attention to breathing is an excellent way to see how well someone owns a movement pattern, and how safe they feel while performing it. Choosing to hold the breath as part of a breathing PNF protocol as popularized by @iamunscared and @preparetoperform is a different beast, and something I can totally get down with. But that's not what I'm talking about here. In general low threshold activities like mobilizing should utilize low threshold breathing strategies. It’s as simple as that. If you’re holding your breath like you’re deadlifting 500 lbs, you’re going too hard. Plain and simple. Back off. Respect the tissue. Respect the nervous system. Your body will thank you.
Always a constant source of inspiration, "Dynamic Stretching & Kicking" by Bill Wallace is hands down the book I have read for the longest time. Bill has given me new ideas in every one of the thousands of times I opened its pages. Bill has also been a fantastic advisor when it comes to dealing with my hip issues. I'll die happy if I can replicate just 1% of this man's talent and wonderful character! Thanks for everything, Bill.
#RotatorCuff injuries are most commonly sustained in #softball pitchers due to the excessive force used when throwing a softball. A tear or #strain to the rotator cuff can be extremely #painful and restrict certain movements if not #treated properly. In some cases, #surgery is necessary. In order to improve a rotator cuff injury, physical therapy is required since symptoms can last up to 6 weeks or longer! ⚾️
A sprained ankle is one of the most common sports injuries and is also the most frequently re-injured.
One of the most important parts of ankle injury rehabilitation and also in preventing re-injuries is proprioception. It is essential that proprioception exercises are performed to “fire” up the muscles around the ankle joint complex to prevent re-injuries from occurring.
During agility drills process, the idea is to put minimal stress on the injured ankle initially and then, over time, increase the stress to strengthen the area.
پيچ خوردگي مچ پا يكي از شايع ترين آسيب هاي ورزشي مي باشد. مهم ترين قسمت توانبخشي اين آسيب، ورزش درماني است. هدف از تمرينات ورزشي، تقويت عضلات ثبات دهنده پا و بازگشت حس عمقي مفصل به منظور جلوگيري از آسيب مجدد مي باشد.
با پيشرفت روند درمان و به دست آوردن دامنه حركتي طبيعي مفصل، تمرينات چابكي و مهارت از مراحل اوليه و قرار دادن كمترين فشار روي مچ پا، شروع مي شود، به صورت پيشرونده ادامه پيدا مي كند تا ورزشكار بتواند به ميادين ورزشي و مسابقه بازگردد.
Had a great time volunteering my services to the remarkable athletes of @avpbeach Hermosa Beach this weekend alongside this amazing medical team! Behind the scenes of every large sporting event are people like us! We had Chiropractors, Athletic trainers, Massage Therapists and Acupuncturists, EMTs and Physical Therapists.. needless to say athletes were well taken care of! Learning from each of you was certainly a treat. Special thank you to @drkarenliu & Dr. Karena Wu for having me!🙏🏾💜🏐☀️🌊

دردهاي ارجاعي به دردهايي گفته مي شود كه مركز آنها نقطه اي دورتر از محل درد قرار دارد.
یک نقطه ماشهای (#تریگرپوینت ) نقطه بسیار حساسی است که داخل باندهای سفت ماهیچه اسکلتی است که با فشار دادن یا انقباض عضلانی دردناک میشود و معمولا با الگوی درد ارجاعی واکنش نشان میدهد. نقاط ماشه ای میتوانند در جاهای مختلفی در ماهیچههای عضلانی باسن، انگشت، گردن، شانه و غیره باشند، در واقع تریگر پوینت یا نقاط ماشهای در جاهایی حضور دارند که عصبها به فیبرهای ماهیچهای متصل است.
ATHLETE CENTERED MODEL
Everyone brings something to the table that should be valued and respected. There is no one person that can do everything for the athlete, from the operating room, to skill work and technique work on the field, as well as everything in between. In the athlete-centered model, everyone is involved in the process- @suefalsone
If your state allows dryneedling get over to this website already. Change your PT game.
If you're the above type of team member. Then you're ahead of the game. If you're not you need to digest who comes first. The patient/client or yourself.
@athletesmobility we don't always have the answers. But you better believe we will point you in the direction of someone that does and that's what makes us unique in that we work closely with our clinical clients. To make sure we understand what they are doing and how that helps the general population. So stay tuned..... _____________________________________
SHOULDER INTERNAL STRENGTHENING. .
▪️Why should you strengthen the internal rotators of your shoulder?
👉🏽 Internal rotation helps to provide stability to the shoulder, more specifically the glenohumeral joint. There are 4 rotator cuff muscles which act as a force couple to the glenohumeral joint meaning that the contract together to stabilize the joint. The shoulder joint is naturally unstable and you need strong rotator cuff muscles to stabilize the joint. .
▪️What muscles internally rotate the shoulder?
👉🏽 The subscapularis, teres major, lattissimus dorsi, and pectoralis major internally rotate. Don't believe me? Look at the insertion points for those muscles and you will see that the attach on the inner part of the humerus so they will internally rotate the shoulder when contracted. .
👉🏽 Tag a friend who needs to stabilize their shoulder.
Our annual meeting for sports medicine was in Toronto this weekend. Every year we get the opportunity to listen to great surgeons in the field and view the new literature that is coming out. We are so excited for the future of sports medicine and proud that Elite is ahead in many areas including our ACL rehabilitation protocols and research. We can't wait to share our new knowledge with our colleagues and patients! #elitesportsmedicine#sportsmedicine#aossm2017#sportsresearch#orthopedicsurgery#ccmc
