  • Benefits of cervical traction. ... Cervical traction can help different types and causes of neck pain, tension, and tightness. ... Cervical traction helps to relax the muscles, which can significantly relieve pain and stiffness while increasing flexibility. ... It can alleviate pain from joints, sprains, and spasms. It’s also used to treat neck injuries, pinched nerves, and cervical spondylosis. ... Cervical traction works by stretching the spinal vertebrae and muscles to relieve pressure and pain. Force or tension is used to stretch or pull the head away from the neck. Creating space between the vertebrae relieves compression and allows the muscles to relax. This lengthens or stretches the muscles and joints around the neck. ... These improvements may lead to improved mobility, range of motion, and alignment. This will allow you to go about your daily activities with greater ease. .. Lack of mobility in the neck can affect many movement patterns we use during the day. For example in the functional movement screen, rolling is used to assess in the inner core stability, without adequate neck mobility this basic pattern is severely compromised. ...

Hi...
  • Do you skin roll? ... Skin rolling can be used as an affective treatment and assessment. ... Due to a neurological law know as: Hiltons law. ... Hilton’s law, espoused by John Hilton in a series of medical lectures given in 1860–1862, is the observation that in the study of anatomy, the nerve supplying the muscles extending directly across and acting at a given joint not only supplies the muscle, but also innervates the joint and the skin overlying the muscle. ... I was first exposed to this technique by the late great Leon Chaitow at positional release seminar in London back in 2007. ... I recall Leon talking about the importance of checking in assessing skin for tone, tenderness and hidrosis. ... Hidrosis and clammy skin is a tell tell sign up underling dysfunction and sympathetic activity. ... Upcoming 16 hour NCBTMB accredited classes. ... Full details: painpostureperformance.com .. ...

  • #Repost @dr.surdykapt Diagnosis – Plantar Fasciitis is a clinical diagnosis described by pain or localized tenderness at the undersurface of the foot where it connects to the calcaneus (heel bone). It is generally worse first thing in the morning, following periods of inactivity, and/or after prolonged walking. Prognosis/Risk Factors –evidence suggests that pain associated with the plantar fascia can require a lengthy rehabilitation process so it is important to set appropriate expectations and goals. Pain is not always the best indicator of recovery, so it is useful to set criteria-based goals rather than solely focusing on symptoms. There is little research to demonstrate that heel spurs, certain foot postures, and several kinematic and kinetic variables lead to worse outcomes or serve as significant risk factors. Increased body mass index (BMI) can be a risk factor, and weight loss may serve as a way to manage overall load on the system. Stretching – The plantar fascia is primarily comprised of dense, fibrous connective tissue which means it is extremely strong. Although we are not creating length through stretching, it may serve to desensitize the area. If you look at any anatomy textbooks, the medial and lateral plantar nerves are intimately related with the plantar fascia. Local Strengthening – PF pain is generally treated like a tendinopathy. We want to create positive adaptations at the local tissues so they can withstand more load over time. The action of the gastroc-soleus complex and extension of the big toe help to create more stress at the plantar fascia. Utilize @fasciitisfighter as seen in the video, the goal is to provide the maximal tolerable load over several months. Global Movements –treating the local tissues is important but it’s also vital to prepare the individual for whatever tasks they intend to perform. Strengthen the rest of the lower extremity, monitor overall workloads, and gradually do more difficult movements that mimic an individual’s sport or activity. #plantarfasciitis #rehab #podiatry #podiatrist #physicaltherapy #fascialstretchtherapy #sportsmassagetherapy #stretchtherapy #myofascialrelease #pnf #muscletherapy #foothealth

  • Downward facing dog is an all- in-one asana (pose), it challenges the wrists, forearms and shoulders, lengthens the spine, waist and back side of legs including glutes all the way to the achilles heel. It’s always a part of my yoga practice and mobility warm-ups. Feels good after long drive and travel. . ⭐️What’s even better? . ⭐️Moving through the pose dynamically, starting with single leg raises and then bent knee variation (swipe to see explanations) video is sped up 4x ⭐️Pulse hips back to crouching tiger and look forward. This bounce prep helps the big hop forward with feet aiming to land besides your pinkies. . ⭐️Pause in the low squat and take a breath with your hands folded in front of your sternum. . ⭐️Inchworm out to downward facing dog. ⭐️ Repeat. Travel 20m . ⭐️Let me know how you feel after a couple more rounds. I love this warm-up and use it frequently in my own workouts, for athletes I train and in the yoga classes I teach. . ⭐️If you read to the bottom of this post 👏🏼👏🏼. Thank you! . ⭐️🙏🏻❤️ New classes starting on 1/22 if interested in practicing with me, send me a DM and I’ll send the details!

  • CHEST ASSISTED ROWS 🛶 - - If you’re someone who struggles with lower back pain, then bent over rows may not be your favorite exercise. If you’re not positioned exactly right, the pressure on your lumbar spine can become pretty uncomfortable 😬. Instead of forcing these painful reps and enforcing poor positioning... MODIFY THE MOVE! - - Chest assisted rows are a great way to force proper spinal alignment. Position yourself with your legs extended and chest at the top of an inclined bench. SQUEEZE your shoulder blades together as your drive your elbows past your hips then control the weight back down SLOWLY! (Tip: if you have tight shoulders, relax them on the last rep & let that weight just hanggg 💆🏻‍♂️)

  • Some great, easy stretches you can do literally anywhere there’s a wall. They’ll help open and stretch out the legs and hips. *pulling the toes to the shin will help stretch into the calves. Pointing the toes, will help stretch out those muscles in your shin. 10 reps both ways! *straddle position I just let gravity take over and I stay in that position for about 2 minutes. *figure 4 , pulling the hips away from the wall will take some tension off if your hips are super tight. Cross the leg over the other and pull the hips to the floor. You’ll get instant feed back. *couch stretch , try to get by he knew as close to the wall as possible. For some, keeping the hands planted on the ground will be plenty of a stretch. Pulling your hands and chest up will get deep in the quads and hip flexors. #rechargeyou #stretching #stretchtherapy #hipworkout #tuesdaymotivation #hiphealth #fitfam #fitness

  • . Pain is a symptom, not a source. — One of the common issues we encounter is a lack of understanding of pain. This is complicated by lack of body awareness, and language to describe how we truly ‘feel.’ — The cool 😎 thing about our practice, we listen first. You may find yourself talking a lot, and you may think we ask a lot of questions. We do. And there is a really good reason. We believe in the importance of determining the source of discomfort, not simply treating a symptom. — If you could be moving like you want to be moving —pain free — what would you do to achieve that? #movebetterlivebetter

  • Forearm Extensor Stretch This is one of those areas that people usually don’t complain about when they come in (mostly because their neck or back issues are stealing the spotlight) but this area is almost always too tight! Think about all your forearm muscles are responsible for. If you use a computer, text on your phone, use a video game controller...this is probably holding some tension. Stretching out muscles that are tight can create some discomfort, but that just means they need it. If you feel a sharp stabbing pain, back out of the stretch slowly and revisit another time. Feeling a dull ache/soreness is normal and is a sign you are lengthening that muscle back out. Hold the stretch for 20 seconds, rest for a minute and repeat a few times. Did this stretch help you? Did you feel it loosen up afterwards? #massage #templetx #stretchtherapy

  • #TippyToesday • Thank you @centerforbarefootmassage for this #blogpost • Nobody wants to work on sick clients... Especially this time of year, when we are in close proximity with multiple clients in often small, heated rooms, it’s important to understand who you can work on in regards to common illnesses. Today, I’m going to talk about the difference between viruses and when antibiotics are used. • Part 1 focuses on 4 common viruses, how long they’re contagious, and the symptoms. At the end of the post, I’ve got a list of what to do if a sick person has come into the office. Part 2, coming next Friday, concentrates on antibiotics, their use, and contraindications. • Will antibiotics help? • Antibiotics will not improve viral infections–we just need to “ride them out”. Antibiotics are prescribed for the treatment of a bacterial infection, but they are NOT effective against viral infections. • Viral Infections, And How Long To Keep People Off Your Massage Table. • ✓ cold • People are contagious only 1 day before symptoms develop but the person remains contagious for 5-7 days. In other words, if your client feels like they have “something coming on”, have them reschedule! • How it spreads: colds are transmitted by virus-infected airborne droplets or by direct contact with infected secretions. (Ick, right?) No, you don’t catch a cold by going outside in cold weather! (But being outside in cold weather often encourages close contact, which is how it’s spread.) • Cold symptoms: • sore throat sneezing fatique cough ✋🏽Germs can easily spread throughout your small, cozy massage room. Avoid working on clients who feel like they are getting sick or within 1 week of symptoms if you’d like to prevent your own cold and protect your other clients. • Plus, they’ll probably experience full-blown symptoms fast and hard. Ain’t nobody got time for that. • ✓ flu • Usually most infectious from the day your symptoms start and 3 to 7 days after that! Children can be infectious even longer, sometimes up to several weeks. That means that you can give someone the flu before you know you’re sick as well as after you are feeling better.”
