#repost @dr.nick.dpt with @get_repost ・・・ 💥PEOPLE SQUAT DIFFERENTLY💥 --- Looking an normal anatomic variance, how can we possibly think that every human will squat exactly the same - I think it's good to know and understand some general guidelines when assessing the squat. Things I like to look at include weight distribution, hip hinge, bar path (if loaded squat), and general symmetry with the movement. However, the golden question is: is this variation normal (i.e anatomic), is it learned (motor control/strength/etc) can I improve it, and do I need to? That's a loaded question(s). One that I can't fully address in just an instagram post because as the saying goes "it depends." But it's a line of thinking that I would recommend we ask ourselves as movement professionals instead of dogmatically saying things like "knees can't go past toes/feet have to be shoulder width/butt wink will kill you" etc. I think we (and I for that matter) can do better. - 🌐 That said, in the picture you'll see a few different things. (Shout out to the man Ryan @themovementfix for the inspiration) The femur (thigh bone) has an articulation point with the acetabulum (hip socket). The head of the femur can vary widely anatomically, both in size and in angulation (such as femoral anteversion and retroversion) If someone has excessive anteversion of the femur, what squat stance would they likely be most comfortable with? -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The depth of the socket is also important, as is the direction the socket is facing. Observe the depth difference in the left vs right. Which one do you think is better for a narrow stance squat? The femoral neck angle may also change throughout life, and varies widely with gender and ethnicity. -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔑Take home message: Humans move differently. Not only do people vary anatomically from person to person, but there can also be variation in individual laterality. Also note, this is not a comprehensive list of all the reasons why people squat differently. - #themovementguys #jointhemovement #movementismedicine #physicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #physio #physiotherapist #sportsmedicine #athleticmedicine #athletictrainer #athletictrainingroom

Not the Star Wars kinda force but rather how our bodies absorb, stabilize, transform and produce force. You always hear or read the statement "the body doesn't know muscles it only knows movements". Well, I'm gonna one up that and say that the body only knows force; the ability to absorb it, stabilize it, transform it, and then produce it. In the sports realm, we're interested in the body's ability to do all 4: absorb, stabilize, transform, and then produce force. In traditional weight lifting or resistance training, we primarily deal with our body's ability to produce force. Of course there is the need to go through an eccentric phase of any lift, but ask any trainer and their primary focus is usually the production of force. Early on in the injury rehab/prevention setting we are primarily dealing with the body's ability to absorb and stabilize force. Later in their rehab continuum we obviously have to create their ability to produce force safely. I see so many IG posts regarding movement and mobility (and that's great), but if we really get down to the nitty gritty it's how our bodies deal with force that is paramount. I'm going to do my best to post a few more explanations of how identifying how our bodies absorb, stabilize and transform force will help you with your program design and exercise selection for yourself and/or your clients.

Athletic hip injuries can be devastating for collegiate athletes and sometimes career ending. Proper diagnosis and management of these injuries is key 🔑. Kelsey came to our office after dealing with nagging hip pain that was interfering with her ability to play lacrosse. Eventually she was diagnosed with FAI and a labral tear and ended up having surgery. After a few months of rehab and a solid #returntoplay protocol she was back on the field this season. Is your hip injury being properly treated? Call our office to find out. #labralteardontcare #hiparthroscopy #lacrosse #sportsmedicine #orthopedicsurgery #physicaltherapy

Does winter stress you out? Let’s talk about it. Below is an introduction to cortisol, but first, why we should stop giving winter the cold shoulder. —•——•——•——•——•——•— Winter is an invitation for play! Speed takes a backseat as trails are blanketed with piles of soft and slippery snow. Feet slide over packed trails or trudge through deep powder, all in prevention of serious training. These miles are best lived full of laughter and shared with friends with an expectation for slow progress. The bane of winter is simply a reminder to take it all a little less seriously. Don’t stress, this is a season of fun! - #nostresswinter #snowfunatall ——————————————— Cortisol is a glucocorticoid produced naturally in the body. It is synthesized in the cortex of the adrenal gland, has a role in glucose metabolism and has a steroid structure (GLUCOse-CORTex-sterOID). Glucocorticoids also have a role in inhibiting the immune system, notably inflammation and immune response. Have you ever had the common cold? The diurnal variance of cold symptoms is evidence of cortisol affecting your immune cells. Overnight, cortisol levels decrease which allows the body to ramp up a response to bacterial or viral infections. The elevated inflammation causes your nose to “run,” your fever to rise and your cough to worsen – these processes are the result of immune cells battling pathogens! In contrast, as cortisol levels rise with waking, the immune system is inhibited and the body’s disease-fighting processes slow down. Thus, your symptoms seem to get worse every night and improve during the day – your body purposefully suppresses your immune system to allow you to function. What else does cortisol do? What stimulates cortisol production? Follow along to learn more about cortisol than you probably ever wanted to!

#repost @stefanduell ・・・ THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME - COSTOCLAVICULAR SYNDROME - OSTEOPATHIC DISTRACTION MANIPULATION OF THE CERVICO-THORACIC-JUNCTION HVLA First of all, I’d like to mention that I do not use these kind of techniques very often, as I have found out over the years that functional myofascial release treatment combined with medical training therapy works much better, especially in a long term! Nevertheless, in a very few situations I still use manipulation techniques. Also, I want to point out, referring to several studies and research, that the popping sound you hear when having your spine manipulated/adjusted is nothing more than a pressure change in the facet joints, just like popping the joints of your hands. It has nothing to do with correcting the alignment of the spine! The C7-T1 spinal segment, also referred to as the Cervico-Thoracic-Junction (CT-Junction), is located at the very bottom of the neck. More specifically, this is where the neck (cervical spine) connects with the upper back (thoracic spine). Before you perform this kind of technique, you should make sure to have released all myofascial structures which can cause a CT-Junction problem as I explained in my previous post about the intrinsic back muscles. Usually, if you do a proper myofascial release treatment, the CT-Junction won’t cause a problem any more, but sometimes it still can. If so, it requires a high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust technique, otherwise it can even force lumbar, cervical or shoulder problems. The patient is seated, almost the same hight then the therapist. The patient places his hands behind the neck and then the therapist wheels through the space in front of the shoulders and applies a distraction force!

Excelente post 💪✔️ . Compartamos el conocimiento y hagamos de la Fisioterapia la más grande 👦🏻👧🧑🏻👨🏽 . Aquel que aprende, aplica y comparte está aprendiendo muchas veces 👦🏻👧🧑🏻👨🏽 @kinesfours . @Regran_ed from @chicagosportsdoc - Traducción: La banda iliotibial es la banda resistente de fibras que se extiende a lo largo del exterior del muslo. Cuando la rodilla se flexiona a unos 30 grados, la banda iliotibial cambia de un brazo de momento extensor a un brazo de momento flexor (esto produce el cambio de pivote cuando hay un desgarro de ACL) 👩‍🏫 The iliotibial band is the tough band of fibers that run along the outside of the thigh. As the knee is flexed to about 30 degrees, the Iliotibial Band changes from an extensor moment arm to a flexor moment arm (this produces the pivot shift when there is an ACL tear) #knee #anatomia #medicine #sportsmedicine #orthopedicsurgery #itb .

#repost @squat_university (@get_repost) ・・・ Can you foam roll the IT Band when it hurts? Let’s find out.🤔 - The IT Band is a thick piece of tissue that runs down your lateral leg and attaches to the outside part of your knee. Increased stiffness leads to compression of the tissue directly underneath which leads to pain.✅ - For this reason, foam rolling over the site of pain is a bad idea because doing so will only put more compression on the already irritated tissues underneath and continue the pain cycle.✅ - However, it is okay to foam roll the lateral quad and lateral hamstring because they both have connections to the IT Band and therefore stiffness in either of these muscles can contribute to the lateral knee pain.✅ - On top of this though, the longer term fix will come from exercises like the banded kick out to the side and lateral band walk which both to address why the issue started in the first place weak hips. Those who develop IT Band pain often do so because of underactive lateral glute muscles like the glute medius. This weakness creates an over-reliance compensation on the nearby TFL muscle, which attaches to the IT Band creating excessive tension and the pain you feel at the knee. By strengthening the glute medius you break the cycle and fix the pain at the lateral knee.✅ - If you’d like to learn more about fixing IT Band pain, check out the blog article linked in my bio📲 - Shout out to @3d4medical with the Complete Anatomy app for the visual of the body today🙏🏼 _____________________________________ This is the 34th #squatuclub eligible post.

Squat well, friends. #versalifts

With the holidays upon us, our regular routines of eating and activity tend to change along with an increase in stress levels.Try a few tips to help keep your cool during the holiday hustle - - Be conscious about what and when you are eating and how you feel while doing it, dont just eat to eat. Drink plenty of water as well! - If you dont have time for your normal workout routine, go for a walk. Being outdoors will help boost your mood and can decrease stress while helping you try to maintain some activity level, shoot for the recommended 10,000 each day - Be grateful for things and take deep breaths. Speaking gratitude during stressful times can help to improve mood and allows your body to calm #nutrition #healthandwellness #strengthtraining #strength #walk #sportsmedicine #functionaltraining #strong #gratitude #stress #stayactive #drinkwater #consciousness #healthylifestyle #
