All this sitting and studying for finals got my hips and low back all stiff. ‼️Simple way to start opening up the hips and giving life to the hip joints again. Keep movement SLOW and engage and throughout the entire movement ‼️ @physiostrengthnyc @drjasonpark
Love these words by @alyssa.reidhead ♥️”A letter to miss livie about her brother” . . “Miss livie as you grow up you’re going to notice things about your brother that don’t quite fit with other kids his age. At first it will seem normal, the fun little chair that he uses with light up wheels, the little button on his belly that gives him food, or even the moments where his body tenses up and then he gets really tired. But soon you’ll notice those things that seemed normal are not. Kids like him don’t have these things and don’t do the things that he does. You’ll notice sometimes he doesn’t interact like other kids, or run around like other kids. He communicates in his own little way that our family will understand and maybe others will not. This can be overwhelming at times, and hard to understand. But I promise you, miss livie, that even though our family seems different, abnormal, or even hard to relate to, that you’ll feel incredible happiness for the smallest things. You’ll start to understand that there are other kids like your brother, and you’ll understand them better than anyone else. You’ll be more accepting of different people and lifestyles, you’ll be patient and loving. Our family is different from other families, but I promise you’ll love it. Being different has made us tough, grateful, and more understanding of different people. Welcome to our family, Livie, welcome to #lifewithspecialneeds.”
When i was first injured, i used to pray that God would heal me & allow me to make a full recovery or that i could have the core strength & balance to stand without my leg braces & throw a ball like I’m able to do now in this video, but now days i pray that he just continues to guide me to do whatever I’m supposed to do, what i CAN do. I used to pray for answers, but now i pray for continued strength. I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now i know that prayer changes us & we change things. Be grateful for where you are today. You are exactly where you are supposed to be right here, right now. ❤️
Deficit Scapular Press Ups . . After working on shoulder blade retraction mobility (see my post from yesterday), strengthen that new range of motion you’ve just opened up to help make it stick. Allowing your body weight to sink below the level of the benches really helps you apply load into that end range of your shoulder blade retraction. . . If you’ve had trouble feeling what it really means to squeeze your shoulder blades back the entire way, this’ll definitely get you there. Some added bonuses here is that you strengthen shoulder blade protraction too by pressing yourself up out of that bottom position, as well as some core strength by keeping your body in a plank the entire time.
Arbitrary rules need not apply ✔️ ⬇️ The cue ‘don’t let your knees pass your toes’ or thinking it’s bad to let your knees pass your toes still runs rampant. ✅ Instead, let’s reframe this: ‘MAKE SURE YOUR KNEES CAN PASS YOUR TOES’ ⬇️ Ankle dorsiflexion ROM is what allows for the knees to travel forward and inevitably pass your toes. This should happen naturally, it isn’t bad. ⬇️ • Loading the ankle into Dorsiflexion is required for many movements, like going down stairs, squatting etc. • It is a good idea to make sure your ankles move well into dorsiflexion, and to get used to loading them and using them at their end ranges of motion. ⬇️ • Having stiff ankles and limited DF will not allow for the knees to travel forwards as much. This can affect the way we move. But arbitrarily trying to not use your ankle ROM is not necessary and is misguided. ✅ Your body is adaptable. If your ankles are stiff, work on them. Spending time at end range and loading the ankles up will build resilience and strength, and will maintain the ROM that you do have. ————————————————— #flexibility#mobility#strength#strong#fitness#fit#fitfam#strengthtraining#training#trainer#movement#squat#squats#gym#health#healthy#rehab#lifestyle#tips#stretching#weightlifting#ottawa#physicaltherapy#physiotherapy#wellness#human#toronto
Working into unilateral movement is one of my favorite things about Pilates. Try this single arm flow to target the weaker muscles in the #shoulders and #arms as well as strengthening the #powerhouse and #core 💯!!! I used one light spring. Inspo from the talented @toms.pilates
It is so exciting to see him walking everywhere now. He will walk independently all over the house now instead of scooting - so now he's working on some more challenging things at physical therapy. His speech has also exploded the past month or two, which has been amazing. . . All in all, this kiddo is making sure mama is having the best Christmas she has ever had with all of this milestones he has been knocking out of the park ❤💚❤💚

Did you see our previous post? We discuss the injury this surgery is fixing. ⠀ ⠀ Extensor Tendon Repair: ⠀ ⠀ +Indications: ⠀ Surgery is an option in severe cases including the following: the deformity is caused by rheumatoid arthritis, a large portion of bone fragment is displaced, the condition is not improved with splints, or the tendon is completely severed. If the deformity results from laceration, surgical repair is commonly used. If it results from avulsion fracture, splinting is applied. Splints also used to reduce contracture prior to surgical repair. Fusion may be required if other treatment is unsuccessful.⠀ ⠀ +Overview:⠀ Extensor tendon repair is used to restore the tendon to a contiguous ligament and improve functionality. The surgeon will make a small incision to access the extensor tendon and use sutures to reattach the torn ends of the ligament to each other. When the sutures are pulled tight it will reinforce the ligament and allow it to heal together.⠀ ⠀ +Outcomes of Surgery: ⠀ Overall, most patients make a good recovery and experience positive outcomes. Pain and range of motion generally improve significantly following surgery. However, surgical treatment can relieve pain, symptoms and improve functionality, but it does not always completely treat the underlying condition.

Understand the arteries of the Hand! Read below ⤵️ @rev.med 🗣 Tag your friends in the comments below & learn together! ✅ Index & Key Points Arteries of the hand come from the radial and ulnar arteries. * Superficial palmar arch: Arch is formed by the ulnar artery anastomosing with a SUPERFICIAL branch of the radial artery. In front of the flexor tendons and middle of the metacarpal bones. @rev.med * Deep palmar arch: Arch is formed by the radial artery and a DEEP branch of the ulnar artery. It runs along the bases of the metacarpals. * Common palmar digitals: From superficial palmar arch to the lumbricals. @rev.med * Proper palmar digitals: From the common palmar digitals and run along the sides of the fingers, but not the thumb. * Princeps pollicis: Starts at the radial artery at the palm and descends to past the first metacarpal to the proximal phalanx of the thumb. @rev.med * Radialis indicis: From the radial artery and runs along the lateral side of the index finger. @rev.med @rev.med #hand #revmed #revupyourbrain #revmedicine
Working on some power generation from a deep knee flexion position off of both inside edge (video 1) and outside edge (video 2) with @oliviervernon54 out in Cleveland ❄️⛄️🤣 . Here we are looking for good triple extension through the power leg and high power generation. Great way to restore or improve strength and power in the transverse plane. Like they say, “power lives in the transverse plane”. . Big shout out and thank you to @t3performance for the hospitality in a their kick ass facility! . @athletixrehab @nfl #browns
Diastasis Recti (abdominal hernia)💫 . Men folk- this is not just a post-partum lady issue🤰🏻; you should pay attention too 😉 . Great post from the homegirl @drelizabethcarlisle —- Diastasis recti is the partial or complete separation of the rectus abdominis, commonly known as the "six pack" muscles, which meet at the midline of your stomach. This is very common during/following pregnancy because the uterus stretches the muscles in the abdomen to accommodate your growing baby. . The most common symptoms of diastasis recti is a bulge in your stomach, especially when you strain or contract your abdominal muscles. Lower back pain and poor posture can be associated symptoms for this as well. . Here is how to self-check yourself for diastasis recti: 1. Lie on your back, legs bend, feet flat on the floor. 2. Raise your shoulders off the floor slightly and look down at your belly. 3.Move your other hand above and below your belly button along your midline ab muscles.See if you can fit any fingers in the gaps between your muscles. 4.If you feel a gap of 1-2 finger tip widths, you likely have a moderate case of diastasis recti, After a few weeks postpartum, the gap will start to narrow as your muscles regain strength. . Here are a few exercises to help you get started rehabbing your diastasis recti: 🚩With all exercises, make sure to keep core contracted (pulling the belly button to spine, pushing low back into the floor). 🎬 Knee to floor 🎬Marching 🎬Bridge with knees pushing together with a towel between them 🎬 Dead bug 🎬Same side dead bug with resistance (push hand into leg) 🎬Side Planks
🥩🍅𝗠𝗔𝗖𝗥𝗢𝗦 𝟭𝟬𝟭🍅🥩 👇𝗧𝗮𝗴 𝗮 𝗳𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗴𝘂𝗶𝗱𝗲👇 - Follow @TheTrainingManual for daily fitness/nutrition tips & education📚 - Great post here by Carsen, every macro is important in your overall diet. It is vital for balance in all areas of the body. If you've been following me for a while now, you know that I do not advocate in eliminating the any of the macros nor the foods you love to it. You can still get extremely fit, obtain an amazing physique, and still enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Read what Carsen has to say down below about each of our macro-nutrients and how they aid the body in our everyday functions! _ "CARBS🍚- are your body’s primary fuel source. When it comes to fueling your workouts, think of carbs like gas for your car. You can’t drive it far without gas in the car, right? Same goes with your workouts. If you are avoiding carbs because you think they’re “bad” or will “make you fat”, you are limiting your performance potential. _ PROTEIN🍗- is the building block for muscle recovery. In order to effectively build a substantial amount of muscle, you need to be consuming enough protein. Aim for 1-gram of protein per 1-pound of body weight. There is not necessarily a “best time” for protein consumption, but rather, you should be consuming it throughout the day in order to hit your daily protein goal. _ FATS🥑- fats get a bad rep because of their name, but healthy fats are crucial to a healthy diet and healthy body. Healthy fats help to absorb vitamins, fuel brain health, regulate hormones, and much more. When it comes to fat consumption, ❌avoid trans fat and limit saturated fats. These fats do more harm than good." Hope that helps! . . Great post by @trainwithcarsen . . #macros#protein#proteins#nutrition#nutritiontips#diet#dieting#healthysnack#healthyeating#digestion#yoga
A lot of people (especially health/medical professionals) will say that running is “hard” on your body, especially your knees 👣 .........what they forget to mention is HOW you run is what can cause it to be hard on your body. Efficient, optimal running isn’t hard on your body - but in 2019 you need to work hard to get there . The human body has adapted to be a tremendous endurance running machine - one of the best of any species on the planet . But how we use our body today is very different from how it has been optimally adapted to be used. We sit in chairs for long periods of time, wear strange pieces of clothing over our feet and start to lose fundamental movement patterns . When you move poorly you run poorly. When you run poorly it’s crazy hard on your joints and body as a whole. Solution? Understand optimal running technique, the mobility and stability required to express it and get to work 👣 #thefootcollective#prehab#run#kneepain#painfree#injuryprevention#physicaltherapy#rehab#runner#barefoot#movement#human#strongfeet#hipmobility#sitting#ottawa#footnerd#marathon#train
