"We were on a break!"
.
But seriously, we are taking a few weeks off from our weekend classes, but no worries - if you go to our page, their is a section of previous "Live videos" which has a collection of our previous mobility classes. So check them out at your leisure, and we'll let you know in a few weeks when we bring the classes back live. #takefive #macptgroup

So now that we have screened the neck, let's look at some options to maintain the soft tissue and overall mobility of the neck. There are a lot of motions to consider so this is not an exhaustive list and demonstration, but a short list of regularly used options.
- Levator Scap Stretch
- Scalene Stretch
- LS Self release with ball
- Neck CARs
To care for your body and your muscles and your joints, it is important to maintain the quality of all of the connective pieces with intention. These examples work for us, but may not be perfect for you so if you have questions specifically for you and your neck - then reach out and we can help! #mobility #neck #physicaltherapy #prevention #macptfamily #macphysicaltherapy #performance #performancetraining

08/27/2020

Time to look at #screening options for our necks. #movementbreakdown
.
We're demonstrating a full range of movements that should be pain free. Checking these ranges may find muscle tightness and pain on the stretch side – or you may find pain on the side that you move towards. Ideally, you wouldn't have discomfort on either side, but pain on either side can mean different things. So, if you find discomfort more than a stretch (especially if you start feeling shooting pain/numbness away from the neck) - you may want to seek a medical assessment.
.
Pain here can be indicative of many things due to the complexity of the neck and spine. Just know that there are a lot of muscles, joints and nerves that interplay around the neck and it is very important to take good care of the whole system. So follow along as we go over mobility and strength and dynamic stability exercises this week – and if you have specific questions for you and your neck, reach out! We are here to help. #macptgroup #macphysicaltherapy #perfrmancetherapy #neck

08/25/2020

This last week of August – let's take a look at the neck. All parts.
.
Many folks might be interested since so many are dealing with neck and shoulder stiffness (or even pain) recently due to time at home and on computers/laptops. When we look at the neck, we have to consider the mobility and strength around the shoulders, spine and neck all together as they work so intricately together. Maintaining your mobility through the shoulders and spine as well as the strength in the surrounding muscles is crucial in maintaining a healthy neck.
.
So, follow along this week as we break down neck screening, mobility, and strength exercises coming later this week. If you have specific questions for you and your health, please private message us or call in to schedule an appointment so we can help get you on the right track! #macptgroup #macphysicaltherapy #perfrmancetherapy #performancetraining #physicaltherapy #neck

- Hamstring Curl
- Eccentric Hamstring Slides
- Ball Hamstring Pulls
- Bridge single leg pulls
One more time - we like to attack weakness and dysfunction early to prevent injuries with all clients. Address limitations and maintain healthy joints/muscles so that you can continue to do the things you love! As always, these are a few example exercises, but if you're dealing with weakness/dysfunction, then you need specific instruction; So reach out! See you all next week. #prevention #physicaltherapy #knees #macphysicaltherapy #injuryprevention #performance

08/20/2020

Beyond screening, let's talk training. #mobility #strength
.
So starting from the basics – here are a few passive range exercises, soft tissue exercises, active range mobility exercises, and an initial strength exercise:
- Prone knee flexion
- Quad self MFR
- Hamstring self MFR
- Patellar Mobilization
- Knee CAR
- Knee Flexion
To care for your body and your muscles and your joints, it is important to maintain the quality of all of the connective pieces with intention. These examples work for us, but may not be perfect for you so if you have questions specifically for you and your knees/legs - then reach out and we can help! #physicaltherapy #prevention #macptfamily #macphysicaltherapy #performance #performancetraining

08/20/2020

Happy Hump Day #MacPTFamily Let's shift our focus from Knee Extension to Knee Flexion this week.
.
Knee flexion is important for squats and lunges, walking and running, and much more. For today – we're going to look at 2 quick ways to screen the knee looking at passive and active range. Check out the video for the demo. #screening
.
We do all of these screenings in order to identify dysfunction. Why? Because sports and exercise tend to break you down over time, and disuse from things like, say, a quarantine can also lead to pain and other problems. So, Maintain your health and be able to self-assess for changes – that way you can attack problems early! #maintenance #prevention
.
Keep up as we break down screening and training mobility, strength, and dynamic stability of the knee. And as always: For any specific questions for you and your health, please private message us or call in to schedule an appointment so we can help get you on the right track! #macptgroup #macphysicaltherapy #perfrmancetherapy #performancetraining #physicaltherapy #knees

08/18/2020

So things have been a little crazy recently, but let's wrap up knee extension breakdown – here are the example exercises to build and improve the strength and dynamic stability of the knee:
- Short Arc Quad
- Terminal Knee Extension
- Plank with TKE
- Single Leg Squat (With Kickstand)
As always – these are meant as examples only. Hopefully to demonstrate and spark some ideas. If you have specific questions for you and your knees – see a professional, or reach out to us to set up an assessment! Tomorrow – we're continuing on with knee flexion. #prevention #physicaltherapy #knees #macphysicaltherapy #injuryprevention #performance

08/15/2020

To keep moving along with our movement breakdown this week –lets go over the first round of mobility examples:
-Hamstring Self Mobilization
-Quad Self Mobilization
-Knee Cap Self Mobilization
-Knee CAR
In order to maintain mobility and flexibility, it is important to maintain the quality of the muscles and fascia as demonstrated here and with active mobility and strength – so follow along tomorrow as we demonstrate and review strengthening exercises. And if you have questions specifically for you and your knees/legs - then reach out and we can help! #physicaltherapy #prevention #macptfamily #macphysicaltherapy #performance #performancetraining

FRC Mobility Training - Legs!

Join in and ask questions as we go or later at your own time for feedback and modifications!

08/14/2020

Okay, so how does one screen knee extension? Check out the video – with explanation below!
.
Well, the first step is to determine what you want to screen? Just the ability to reach full extension as it compares to the "norm" out there? Then easy – Kick your leg out and see if it goes straight.
.
BUT – if we try to be more specific then a basic screen, we could modify to include a test for hypermobility. So, stand and extend your knee. Does it go straight, less than straight OR beyond straight (Curved a little backwards)? Now we're getting some more information and a higher quality screen.
.
And There's MORE! Like we mentioned previously – The knee cap also needs to be looked at with knee screening. So for this the screen is simple: straighten the knee, then bend it. Watch as the knee cap moves to see whether it tracks straight up and down, or does it shift side to side during that movement? #Jsign
.
We could get into a lot of details here about passive knee cap motion in multiple directions – but these tests we're talking about today are meant to be easy and quick screens! AKA if it looks wrong, go get it looked at by a professional! Get seen early to identify dysfunction before it leads to pain and long term problems. If you have hypermobility – it may not be wrong, but it is good to know and understand how it can impact your daily life. As we have said before - Prevention is indeed the best medicine. #prevention

EXTRA EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
.
Today we wanted to do something special for our #Macptfamily– We wanted to share one our success stories!
.
Here's a snippet of his MAC PT Story: "My surgery was on Oct 25 2019 and I started working with MAC 7 days later. I am a low handicap golfer … and was told by my doctor not to swing a club for 5 months. I am a retired Marine and still have the same focus and work ethic I did when I was on active duty. I explained to Mac that my goal was to play without pain. Prior to surgery my swing speed with driver was 112 mph and long irons 93 mph. I did not expect to get back to these speeds within a year. Mac is very good with shoulder recovery, we started out slow with the shoulder, but worked on lower body so that I could maintain flexibility. … I am at month 9 and playing regularly, swing speed with driver is 107 mph and long irons at 92 mph. ... This team is awesome to work with. I highly recommend MACPT if you are active in sports and want to heal quickly, maintaining focus on your sport." #backinthefight
.
We had to paraphrase a bit, but as happy as we are to get the glowing praise – We are happier to see this guy drive a ball as long as the pros! It should be said this retired Marine put in a lot of hard effort and earned every bit of mobility, strength, and power that he has now and will continue to gain. If this sounds like the recovery plan and success you want – reach out! We can help! #macptgroup #macphysicaltherapy #rehab #physicaltherapy #golf #hardwork #dedication

Another New week - And that means Another Movement Break Down. Let's Go!
.
This week we're going to look at the knee and extension! An important function for standing, walking, jumping, and everything else knee related. This will be a pretty straight forward one, so we'll have some fun with our examples and discussion this week - so keep up as we break down screening and training mobility, strength, and dynamic stability of the knee.
.
And you can't talk knee extension without breaking down a little knee cap information as well - so this week will include some bonus content: stay tuned!

Let's wrap up the #movementbreakdown for #shoulderweekpart2 – focus all on strength and control today.
.
Having strength and control with Internal Rotation means having a healthy shoulder that can help the shoulder perform in all aspects of usual shoulder function, plus it will be better able to dynamically stabilize overhead positions needed for lifting, reaching, and throwing specifically! So here are a few example exercises:
- Isometric IR
- Band Resisted IR
- 90 Abduction IR
- Ball Overhead Stabilization IR
- Ball Throws
Like we've said before, addressing weakness and dysfunction early to prevent injuries is one of our priorities for all clients/patients. Address limitations and maintain healthy joints/muscles so that you can continue to do the things you love! And of course, these are just some example exercises, but if you're dealing with weakness/dysfunction, then you need specific guidance; So reach out! And check out our story for the other exercises not demonstrated here. See you all next week! #prevention #physicaltherapy #shoulders #macphysicaltherapy #injuryprevention #performance

#ShoulderWeekPart2 #Mobilitytraining
Moving on from screening, let's take a look at mobility and tease a little strength today. We've got 2 examples here and even more in our story. Starting with Passive mobility leading into Active mobility and straight into resisted Strengthening:
- Passive Internal Rotation / Sleeper Stretch
- Side Lying IR
-Side Lying End Range IR
- Resisted IR (Concentric and Eccentric)
And yes – The towel IS important for better training of the muscle and the eccentric phase IS important for IR. #specific

So how do we screen Shoulder Internal Rotation? Also – why bother? #movementbreakdown #screening
.
Well, we believe it is important to do simple screens to assess joints and muscles for normal function to maintain a healthy body and to decide if/when you need to seek help. Attacking problems early makes maintaining a healthy body much easier. That's why screening should be quick and easy like the one demonstrated here. #prevention
.
Other screening tools out there for shoulder rotation include Glenohumeral Internal Rotation Deficit or GIRD (as mentioned yesterday) as well as Total Arc of Motion. GIRD is commonly defined as a loss of internal rotation motion of >20 deg between shoulders, but a more accurate representation and screening of the shoulder can be to look at the difference in total arc of motion, which commonly is about 180 deg in both shoulders and screen for a difference greater than 5 deg. Both tests give insight into shoulder health and injury risk.
.
These are tests that we look at in office as they require tools and a little training – but are simple screens to assess dysfunction in a shoulder – ESPECIALLY in an athletic shoulder. If you're dealing with shoulder dysfunction – try the quick screen, and ask you're healthcare provider about GIRD and Total Arc of Motion. Stay on top of your health and act early. If you have questions or specific concerns about your shoulders/health - let us know! We would love to help. #macptgroup #anounceofpreventionisworthapoundofcure #shoulderIR #internalrotation
