Things often work better in pairs...

The glutes and your....feet?

You may have heard me talk about how the lower kinetic chain is connected, how ankle rocker effects hip extension and how important hallux (great toe) extension is. 

 

What can we conclude from this study?

  • toe spreading exercises are important for reducing navicular drop (and thus mid foot pronation, at least . . .

What attaches to that hip capsule, anyway?

I was trying to figure to which muscles attached to the labrum of the hip, as I see many folks where theres has gone south. I had always wondered if the iliopsoas attached, since many people with labral pathology have hip flexor dysfunction, where they use their psoas and iliacus as hip flexion initiators (or sometimes the rectus femoris, TFL . . .

Reciprocal Inhibition?

Gaining Anterior Length, Through Posterior Strength and vice versa….A Lesson in Reciprocal Inhibition

 

 

Silvrback blog imageI found a really cool article, quite by accident. I was leafing through an older copy of one of my favorite journals “Lower Extremity Review” and there it was. An article entitled “Athletes with hip flexor tightness have reduced gluteus maximus activation”. Wow, I thought! Now there is a great . . .

How's your Iliacus?

Have you thought about the importance of the iliacus? During gait? How about at initial contact and again at pre swing? (1) You realize it will be “turned off” if you have labral pathology, right? (2) Needling can be one way of “turning it back on”.(3)

Check out this brief video of one way to accomplish this.  . . .
