Review #3 ⚡️Ahh thank you so much. The best part about my job is teaching people cool things about the body that not only empowers them but also helps the healing process. (Consent gained from client to share this review).
Anterior shoulder pain & desk workers 🦴 It’s no secret that desk work can cause your back to resemble the letter C. This sustained thoracic flexion (rounded back) can cause some issues with the shoulder girdle.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The muscles around the anterior shoulder (pectorals, biceps, upper trapezius, sternocliedomastoid) begin to shorten and become tight. The muscles around the back of the shoulder (across the shoulder blade and upper back) may become lengthened and weak. This can cause an imbalance in the shoulder muscles and therefore shoulder function. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although, rounded posture isn’t necessarily bad, it’s when this or any posture is sustained for a long period of time, it becomes an issue. My usual rule of thumb for desk workers is to try and change your posture as often as you can. Also, when exercising, for every one set of chest exercises that you do (push ups, chest press, etc), try to balance it with two sets of back exercises (bent over row, reverse flies, etc). This will help to bring you back out of that rounded posture 👩🏼💻 #osteo #osteopathy #osteopath #osteopathbelfast #belfast #physicaltherapy #physiobelfast #review #recommendation #yogabelfast
Who needs a bit of this right now? 👐🏽 Back pain doesn’t discriminate, it affects people of all ages, occupations and fitness levels. As Osteopaths, we can observe and assess your movement patterns and conduct clinical examinations to find the root cause of the pain. Treating the source rather than only the presenting symptoms will result in longer term relief and prevention of recurrence. #osteo #osteopathy #osteopath #osteopathbelfast #belfast #physicaltherapy #physiobelfast #review #recommendation #yogabelfast
Review #2 ⚡️ You will never leave a session of mine without some homework to do. The magic happens in the work you do between appointments #osteo #osteopathy #osteopath #osteopathbelfast #belfast #physicaltherapy #physiobelfast #review #recommendation #yogabelfast
Running form 🏃🏼♀️ did you know that you can have your running form assessed as part of your appointment? I was lucky enough to attend the @running.physio CPD course in London last year, where we were taught how to assess gait and give cues to help correct common issues.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ask someone to film you running on your phone in slow motion both from behind and from the side. This can be on a treadmill or outside. Running form can cause and predict various running injuries and making minor adjustments to form can make a huge difference. #osteopathy #osteopath #physicaltherapist #osteopathbelfast #belfast #belfastphysio #healthcare #backpain #kneepain #runnersknee #run #runners #foot #footpain #plantarfasciitis #achilliestendinitis #halluxrigidus
Feet 🦶🏼 a part of our body that is so undervalued, yet so critical to the way we move. When I was at university, I did my Masters dissertation on how foot over-pronation links to lower back pain. This was 5-6 years ago and at the time the evidence was sparse and I was nearly talked out of doing the study by a few tutors. However, over the last year I’ve been doing more research on the feet and how they impact the rest of the body. It’s such an obvious link but it’s taken a while for practitioners and patients to place value their feet. Do you consider your feet when training? Do you think your feet are affecting your knee pain or hip pain? Do you work on your foot stability, mobility and strength? If not, don’t worry most people don’t (yet), but if you’d like to find out more, send me a message or book in for an appointment 👐🏽

Yoga for Runners tonight @ 7pm. Tonight's focus: Hips & Lower Back
Switch up your calf raises for distance running 💥 Gastrocnemius (the most outer calf muscle) is made up of fast twitch fibres and is therefore great for sprinting. The soleus muscle, which sits underneath, is made up of slow twitch fibres and is recruited for distance running. Find out how to strengthen both of these muscles and prevent injury in my latest blog post - full post below!
becthomaswellness.com If you’re a runner and burdened by tight calves, you may need to strengthen them! Our calf muscles tighten up in response to loading and when we run we absorb 3-4 times our body weight during single leg stance. If our calf muscles are weak and unable to cope with the load, they tighten up and in s...

SWITCH IT UP ✔️
The last two weeks I’ve been testing my body in ways that it’s not used to. My training is primarily running and yoga. Don’t get me wrong, yoga IS good for strength training when done effectively (engaging, not locking out joints, opting for specific asanas). However, there are some things it just doesn’t cover and one of them is pulling (rows, pull ups etc). This week I’ve went to a TRX class and an abs & glutes class as prehab against imbalances and it FEELS GREAT 🙌🏽
Assess your training regime and see if there is anything you need to send a little love to. Have you strengthened your hamstrings recently? Do you neglect ab exercises?
Honest self-reflection is a great tool to see where we can grow 🌿
For it to be consistent, it has to be enjoyable 💙
If you love it, do it. There is no point trying to force yourself to do something you don’t enjoy, because eventually you’ll resent it or you’ll quit. If you enjoy it you’re more likely to keep it up. Pick something you love and do more of it 💙
