  • How lucky are we to have such good cafes within walking distance of our clinic?
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​Our morning physiolates classes are a great way to start the day, and being able to follow them up with a delicious breakfast? What could possibly be better! 🙌

  • When the Metatarsophalangeal Joints extend, the plantar aponeurosis becomes taut. This brings the Metatarsal and Tarsal bones closer together which makes the foot a more rigud structure.
.
This is useful during gait as it helps to absorb and transfer ground reaction forces. It also makes the foot a more rigid lever which is useful in the push-off pbase of gait.
.
This mechanism is what enables the foot to have the mobility to move through all positions of the gait cycle while also having the stability to absorb and transmit forces.
.
Any feedback/questions are more than welcome.

Cheers guys!

  • Foot prep part 2 ✌️ 🦶 -

1️⃣ - Band resistance toe scrunches: Aim for slow, controlled contractions to be able to strengthen concentrically, isometrically and eccentrically with an overall goal of high volume. Useful throughout early stage rehab and later stage as a resilience builder -

2️⃣ - Wall resisted March: Later stage rehab and a favourite of mine with rugby forwards, replicated a scrum position and trains grip strength and load transfer of the toes as you press into the wall, also useful for developing trunk and upper limb bracing

"[5 MASTERS RUNNERS FACTS ] 👟⠀
_⠀
☝🏻There is a growing number of masters (> 40yrs) runners world-wide 🌎 taking to the sport + also continuing to run for longer. Here are 5 Masters Runners facts as published by Willy & Paquette*👀⠀
_⠀
1️⃣ The increase in below the knee injuries in masters runners may be in part due to the known reduction in leg and achilles tendon stiffness that occurs with ageing. A less stiff achilles tendon will be subjected to elevated achilles tendon strain when generating push off force at toe off, which in turn elevates the risk of achilles tendon disruption and injury 👣⠀
.⠀
2️⃣ Researchers have found that running on sand increased the risk of achilles tendinopathy by a magnitude of 10x in masters runners. This was compared with running on hard/firm surfaces, such as asphalt,  which lowered the risk of achilles tendinopathy in masters runners by 53%🏖🛣⠀
.⠀
3️⃣ Researchers have found that despite popular opinion, recreational running may have a protective effect against developing hip and knee osteoarthritis compared with non runners 🦵👍🏻⠀
.⠀
4️⃣ There is an inevitable and unavoidable progressive decline physiologically associated with reduced cardiovascular function including a reduction in maximal aerobic capacity (V02max) of approx 7% per decade between 30 and 70yrs ⬇️⠀
.⠀
5️⃣ Statins may increase the risk of tendinopathy, while fluoroquinolone use may slow down achilles tendon rehabilitation due to a reduced rate of collagen synthesis ⏳💊⠀
_⠀
🖥*Ref: R. Willy, Paquette, M. (2019). The physiology and biomechanics of the masters runner. J Sports Med Arthrosc Rev 2019, 27: 15-21⠀

👉🏻For some great further tips on masters running jump over to Expert Edition Ep 1️⃣3️⃣2️⃣ of physicalperformanceshow to learn from montannarunninglab 💡⠀
_⠀
📌TAKE HOME: their are a myriad of health benefits to be had for those who run beyond 40yrs of age. These tips may be of interest and also utility in helping the master runner enjoy injury free running ✅⠀

  • “What’s in a muscle?” Okay I can’t believe some people don’t know this, but muscle is mostly made out of water. What baffles me is people drink no where close to the amount of water your body needs!

If you’re serious about building muscle you need to drink half to one gallon a day!

Thanks @roballenfitness for the idea!

“Training can be defined as the stimulation of biological adaptations that result in an improvement in performance in a given task” (MacDougall & Sale)...rehab is no different!
.
Principles such as Progressive Overload, S.A.I.D., Accommodation, Variability, and Individuality all matter, but we may just need a different starting point
.
For instance, we may begin rehab with tighter parameters due to the lower tolerance and higher sensitivity of the individual in order to not overtax their reduced envelope of function
.
We may need to cultivate a mindset of optimism/ facilitate some cognitive restructuring for previously held beliefs and expectations
.
Overall this may help our athletes feel less threatened or worrisome so that they can move more and have more movement options to tolerate the appropriate stress needed to induce the specific adaptations that we are looking for
.
Importantly, it will allow the individual to be more positive and secure in the entirety of the process
.
As we move from rehab along the continuum to training, we can gradually escalate the demand of the stressor where we worry less about the input of the localized tissue and more about the overall output
.
But this begins with establishing KPI’s (key performance indicators) based on their sport/activity, prior injury history, what they already have, and what they need to reach their goals. From there, we would then progress in complexity as we go on
.
This process is not black and white nor linear. There may be speed bumps, roadblocks, steps forward, steps back, and even steps sideways..but by setting expectations and guiding principles we are able to navigate the noise and trend in the right direction
.
So rather than dichotimize rehab and training, let’s think of it as a continuum, where we must “begin at the beginning…” ~Lewis Carroll
.
👉 Rehab= Training within the complexity of pain

Your quads are gonna love this.  Because these two moves are the ultimate quad stretches. .
Your knees are going to thank you for this.
.
What I’ve seen most people doing is, stand up and crank on their ankle dragging there foot up behind them forcing that pelvis into a vicious anterior tilt.
.
What you’re doing in that scenario is putting shear on the lumbar spine and doing precisely zero for those quads. 😂
.
By locking out the pelvis (raising one leg) you force the quad to take the stretch, think of it as some kind of self submission.
.
Here are the two moves to change your game.

1️⃣ Side Position Quad Stretch
2️⃣ Open Couch Stretch

Modern day societies make our sympathetic nervous systems (AKA FIGHT OR FLIGHT time) the stars of the show, whether we like it or not. We get all the stimulus, all the time. #nochill Increasingly so, we need to be deliberate about reconnecting with our parasympathetic nervous systems (REST & DIGEST time).

Strategy 2: take a minute and close your eyes. Clear your mind. Escape your distractions and be at peace with yourself. Feel your body melt in relaxation as your focus on your breath.

HOW MUCH OF WHAT MACRO? 
Tag a friend that could use this guide!👇⠀ - Carbohydrates, particularly glucose, are the body’s preferred fuel source. Explosive and strength-based sports use your anaerobic system, which relies on carbohydrates in the form of glycogen. As well as this, high glycogen levels are associated with higher levels of muscle protein synthesis and lower levels of cortisol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Protein’s main role in the is for growth and repair, but it also plays a major role in enzymatic activites and can be used for energy. In terms of training, recent research suggests that roughly 1.6g/kg is optimal for maximising hypertrophy. Of course, you can eat more than this and I’d suggest a range of between 1.6-2g/kg, as eating more protein may allow you to suppress your appetite, which can be a big help to those with massive appetites.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fat is often seen as the evil of the macronutrients, but it is vital for optimal endocrine function. The endocrine system is responsible for the production of testosterone, which is key for muscle growth & maintenance. It also acts to help absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as A,D,E &K.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SPINE.

#Let your spine rest well when you sleep: When you rest is when your spine relaxes and gets rejuvenated from all the stress of the day, lie flat on bed and pillow that allows you comfort.

#Exercise your core to strengthen your abs and back muscles: Your core muscles- the abs and back muscles, needs to be firm enough to support your spine to stay healthy and pain free.

#Your shoes need to support your spine: Good shoes play a great role in helping the body stay in good shape and alignment, so whether you are walking or exercising, wear good shoes that can support your spine health.

#Enjoy a good massage: Do you know that massage has  therapeutic benefits, and can increase endorphins (the body's natural painkiller) in your cells, thereby reducing the amount of painkillers consumed.

#Practice good ergonomics while sitting (and limit total sitting time): The discs in your spine are loaded 3 times more when sitting than when standing, which makes you very vulnerable to a lower back pain when you sit for a longer period of time. cultivate the habit of walking around for 2-3 minutes before you go back to sit.

For more healthy tips and advice or info on our glutathione enhancing products DM or call/ Whatsapp : (+234) 8180801015, 9030002302.

  • We aren’t reinventing rehab…we’re just redefining it🔥

The FAKTR Rehab System will help you understand and apply the fundamentals of assessing both common and complex MSK injuries and conditions, using an effective combination of diagnostic tests based upon the latest research; allowing you to have the certainty in creating your treatment plan.

Then, you’ll utilize the 5 Concepts of FAKTR as a framework for treatment throughout each phase of healing utilizing a variety of tools and innovative techniques to strategically address the underlying dysfunction throughout the entire kinetic chain instead of merely treating at the site of pain.

In this action-packed hands-on weekend, you’ll become proficient in utilizing IASTM applied during Functional  rehabilitative exercises and eccentric loading, joint compression flossing, dynamic myofascial decompression (cupping) and much more.

With FAKTR, we take it a step further and introduce you to the BioMechanical approach to taping, utilizing Dynamic Tape’s highly elastic tape with strong recoil to continue reinforcing load management and movement modifications long after your patient leaves your office.

We won’t teach you a “cookie-cutter” approach to rehab or a “one-size-fits-all” technique.  Instead, we provide you with a road-map and framework that you can use with every patient, every time with ANY tool or technique you already utilize in your office.

Visit 💻https://pxlme.me/dQU5J-HR or follow 🔗in Bio⬆️ to gain instant access to our 2019 course schedule and unlock our new bundle offers! .

    We won’t teach you a “cookie-cutter” approach to rehab or a “one-size-fits-all” technique. Instead, we provide you with a road-map and framework that you can use with every patient, every time with ANY tool or technique you already utilize in your office.

  • Can You Touch Your Toes? Tag someone who can’t!
-
#FLASHBACKFRIDAY 2017
-
☕️ Never been able to touch the toes?! Give this toe touch progression a try.  When performing this, just make sure you're pushing the hips back as you touch the toes.  Credit to the guys over at FMS for putting this toe touch progression together years ago!
-
🌯Here's how to do the toe touch progression!
-
👉Start by testing yourself
Keep the knees straight and try and touch the toes.
1️⃣ Start by placing a rolled up towel or anything you can squeeze between the knees.
2️⃣ Place your toes on a rolled up towel or anything that is raised.
3️⃣ Squeeze the towel and attempt to touch the toes.
4️⃣ Perform five reps.
-
👉 Step over the towel and place the heels on the towel, so the heels are raised.
🆗 Now repeat steps 3️⃣ and 4️⃣
-
👉Stand on a flat surface.
🆗 Now repeat steps 3️⃣ and 4️⃣
-
Now time to retest.
👉Remove the towel between the knees and touch the toes.

  • Do your first pull up. Here is a selection of exercises and some tips to get your first pull up. All of the movements focus on the vertical type pulling motion that is needed to complete a full pull up.
.
.
1️⃣ - First movement is a scapular pull up. Start in a dead hang position. Then, think of depressing and retraction your shoulder blades. Hold for a few seconds, then relax
.
.
2️⃣ - Eccentric pull up - use a box or step to start in a higher position. Perform a slight jump to start at the top of the rep, then slowly lower down under control.
.
.
3️⃣ - End range hold. Again, using a step or box - start at the top of the rep and hold. Make sure to maintain a good down and back position of your shoulder blades and keep chin tucked.
.
.
4️⃣ - Band assisted pull up. Use a resistance band and wrap around the pull up handles. Be sure to use enough resistance to complete full motion, but be sure that the “help” of the band isn’t too much where you aren’t getting the appropriate stimulus
.
.
5️⃣ - Last exercise is a basic machine pull down movement. This is simulating the vertical pulling motion and can be a great exercise to progressively overload over time and build up strength as accessory work for the pull up.
.
.
🐥 - Tag or share this video with someone who could use a little help getting their first pull up!

  • Improve Your Cutting POWER❗️⠀
.⠀
⛹️‍The crossover step is a must-learn technique for any athlete when it comes to frontal plane movement drills. Essentially you have 2 options for lateral movements. Either a pure lateral shuffle (feet never cross each other) or the crossover step (feet cross over each other). You need BOTH to maximize your performance on the field.⠀
.⠀
🏋️‍While it's extremely important to practice the actual techniques themselves, you can also work on drills to improve that first step power.⠀
.⠀
To simply things:⠀
To work on the lateral shuffle ➡️ any lateral lunge based drill⠀
To work on the crossover step ➡️ any curtsey lunge based rill⠀
.⠀
This clip is a weighted curtsey lunge working on explosive power.⠀
.⠀
Curtsey lunges are my favorite!!! #curtsey #curtseylunge #cuttingtechnique #athlete
