✨Stability Through Stance Phase of Gait ✨
The stance phase of the gait cycle occurs when you start to bear weight on your leading leg and ends when that leg has transitioned to being the trailing leg and is about to begin swing phase. During the stance phase there is also a period of single limb support. During the single limb support phase the body is required to stabilize over its center of gravity and remain balanced and upright. What we find when people have poor single limb balance and stability they shorten this single limb support phase of gait whether by shortening step length or increasing cadence. While these both are safe ways to limit your time in single limb support in order to have a more normalized gait pattern we really want to be able to have that prolonged stability in single limb support. .
This exercise adds some instability with the foam pad (easily available on Amazon 😊 ) to increase the demands of your hip and ankle stabilizers. So that when transitioning back to level ground your body is prepared and more ready to maintain single limb support phase of gait. . . 👣do you notice a difference when going from the foam pad to level ground? Is your body able to maintain single limb support for longer having practiced on an unstable surface? 👣

@slowmotioncapture While many overhead throwing athletes typically use a 6 phase model for throwing, the tennis serve can be analyzed using an 8 phase model as detailed by Kovacs and Ellenbecker in 2011.
1. Preparation- relaxed and aligning the body for serve motion
2. Release-R erector spinae activation and ball toss to facilitate contact ~100 deg abduction
3. Loading- lower extremity activation and R trunk rotation to store potential energy
4. Cocking- R shoulder external rotation and horizontal abduction to increase racquet travel to contact
5. Acceleration- R concentric shoulder internal rotation and horizontal adduction
6. Contact- velocity of serve dependent on shoulder internal rotation and wrist flexion
7. Deceleration- R eccentric shoulder external rotators (posterior rotator cuff) and horizontal abductor activation
8. Finish- Eccentric lower extremity activation for shock absorption and to decrease the athlete’s forward velocity
There are a few differences between server 1 and 2, but the largest may be in the loading phases of the athletes. During the loading phase, the athlete stores potential energy via lower extremity activation and trunk rotation. This “trophy position” leads to effective upward and forward force (primarily posterior leg) and a stable axis to rotate about (primarily anterior leg) throughout the rest of the service motion, yielding increased serve velocity. Serve efficiency, however, is more related to internal rotation of the serving arm.
All of these 8 phases must come together synchronously to perform an effective and efficient serve.

FAI is a condition of younger more athletic populations. It is the compression of the soft tissue or bony structures of the hip joint that is associated with clinical signs (i.e. hip flexion and or hip internal rotation impairments) and symptoms (i.e. groin pain) accompanied by changes seen on imaging studies (i.e. x-ray [Dunn view]). FAI could be a problem with bony overcoverage of the acetabulum (pincer), loss of femoral head spherical shape called a CAM lesion or both.
Surgical rates have risen 450% over the last decade! This has occurred in the absence of high quality randomized superiority or non-inferiority trials comparing surgery to Physical Therapy interventions.
Mansell and colleagues examined 80 patients from the military with FAI over a 2 year period. Patients were provided a self-management (activity modification, pain and exercises) and given 6-weeks to work through their condition. If after 6-weeks patient were not satisfied, they were randomized to receive either arthroscopic hip surgery with post operative PT or PT alone (2 sessions per week for 6 weeks).
Manual Therapy: hip traction and a variety of MWMs
Progressive Exercise: Strengthening, stretching, and self-mobilizations
As per usual, there was significant cross-over from PT to surgical group, but both groups demonstrated improvements in pain and function, with no significant differences found between groups at 6-months, 1 year and 2 years.
66 of the patients (38 randomized to surgery and 28 originally randomized to physical therapy) ended up undergoing surgery.
20 patients from the PT group eventually elected to have surgery but further analysis found this cross over did not alter the results.
Healthcare costs were greater in the surgical group ($13,8916 +/- $7040) compared to PT ($4247 +/- $7817).
Next workshop is officially scheduled! Feb 27th at the U. Come listen to @ezell.dakota break down current concepts in pain science and stick around for demonstrations and Q&A on how to apply these ideas to you, your patients, and your clients. What is pain science?? Why do so many people have “positive findings” on MRI like labral tears, disc bulges and meniscus tears but no symptoms? Why does something hurt that should have “healed” months or years ago? Or do you have pain that no one seems to be able to explain? We’ll cover all of this and more. Just comment or DM to RSVP. We have 9 spots left so act now. Did we mention it’s free?? #painscience#physicaltherapy#nevpt
Friday was a rest day from the gym but was for sure not a rest day for my brain.
I had one of most incredible bodywork sessions with @ronniewarde of Optimum Body.
The treatment was a real brain training session. I learned what it was to move correctly and how much I have compensated movements with cheats.
We started with basic movement and went through a journey of discovering why I move the way I do and began the reprogramming of my Neuro pathways to generate the most effecient powerful movement. There was an intense dry needling session which I swear could have conducted electricity with the twitch responses and this was followed by actually moving the body and retesting to see how far I came in the 90minutes.
If you are an athlete and movement is part of your process and your looking to improve or fix a movement pattern you have Ronnie is a must to see.
Im a real questionning patient and need to understand what's happpeneing, why and how I cam fix it and I got all this from him.
Ive a lot of homework to do and I cannot wait for the next session!
Do you suffer with excessive swelling in your extremities? Sarah Houle, PT of our Manchester office is available to assist you!
Manual Lymphatic Drainage [MLD] is a gentle type of skin massage technique that promotes lymph to drain out of a limb into an area that drains normally. It is most commonly incorporated in management of lymphoedema. In addition to improving lymphatic circulation, MLD also increases blood flow in deep and superficial veins.
If your medical provider has recommended manual lymphatic drainage, give our Manchester office a call at 603-625-1864. Sarah has available openings this week, and can help you get back to feeling great and moving well! #manuallymphaticdrainage#lymphoma#physicaltherapy#physicaltherapycanhelp#edema#postsurgicalswelling#getpt1st
Quality vs. Quantity
This is an upper body lifting day I wrote for one of my clients. Take a gander at what a high quality program looks like and feel free to try it out if you have the grit.
All the exercises are hyperlinked to the Kempf Fitness Professional YouTube channel, explanations in the white text, reps and sets listed, spaces to fill in your weights, etc.
There are plenty of cheap / free workout and nutrition programs tossed around all over the Internet, but clearly their success rate is lacking to put it lightly. Preventable injuries and chronic diseases are getting worse.
How do you know if the program will help you achieve your specific goals? How will the program address injuries or dysfuntional movement patterns? How will the program help you stay motivated? Can you adjust the program as needed in case life happens? Do you have guidance from someone who has a formal education or professional experience in the field?
Tell you what, if my car broke down, I'd take it to a professional mechanic. Not some guy who takes pics of his car on Instagram and claims to be the next Vin Diesel. I'd invest the extra time/money into my car because it has long term value to me and I want it to run like a dream as long as it is able.
This is why the majority of my advertising is referral based / word of mouth. This is why my results speak for themselves with me and my clients. This is why the people I work with improve their lives for the long term. The emphasis is quality.
The sooner and more you invest, the greater your return. Why wait? What's holding you back? #kfitpro
Los tendones son tejido conectivo no especializado colágeno denso tendinoso que une los músculos a los huesos. Pueden unir también los músculos a otras estructuras.
Tienen la función de insertar el músculo esquelético en el hueso, conectándolos y permitiendo que el músculo transmita la fuerza de la contracción muscular al hueso para producir un movimiento. Esta conexión permite que los tendones modulen pasivamente las fuerzas durante la locomoción, proporcionando estabilidad adicional sin trabajo activo. Sin embargo, en las últimas dos décadas, hay mucha investigación que se centra en las propiedades elásticas de algunos tendones y su capacidad para funcionar como resortes.
No todos los tendones deben cumplir el mismo papel funcional. Algunos tendones realizan una función posicional como los que hay alrededor de los dedos al escribir y otros que actúan como resortes para hacer que la locomoción sea más eficiente, almacenando energía elástica que se liberará posteriormente.
Los tendones de almacenamiento de energía pueden almacenar y recuperar energía con una alta eficiencia.

➡️If you want the treatment to work, it's important to follow your physical therapist's home exercise program. In fact, the work at home is just as – if not more – important than the time patients spend in the clinic, says Jessica B. Schwartz, a physical therapist in New York and spokeswoman for the American Physical Therapy Association. "My work can only take them so far," she says. But when patients are completely committed to their treatment plan, they're "going to hit this thing out of the park," she says. Here are five tips on how to do that: www.facebook.com/SOARmedicine
