Why the Transverse Abdominus Muscle is an Important Part of Your Core!

WHAT DOES THE TRANSVERSUS ABDOMINIS MUSCLE DO?
Along with other core muscles, the main roles of the transverse abdominus are to protect internal organs by holding them in place and to support the torso by maintaining abdominal wall tension which stabilizes the spine and pelvis before any movement of the limbs can occur.

FUNCTIONS OF THE TRANSVERSE ABDOMINAL MUSCLE
Since the transverse abdominus is a part of the core, it has a lot of functions especially when it comes to functional movement. When it comes to body movement, the major functions of this abdominal muscle can be broken into two:

STATIC CORE FUNCTIONALITY
This is the ability of the transversus abdominis and other core muscles, in general, to align your skeleton to resist a force that doesn’t change.

A good example of this is how this abdominal muscle helps to align your body when you’re doing plank exercises.

DYNAMIC CORE FUNCTIONALITY
Unlike static core functionality, the dynamic core functionality of the transverse abdominis comes into play when your body is in movement and engages several parts such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles to absorb resistance and adjust itself with relevance to your plane of motion.

Physical Therapists Help People Move Through Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia causes widespread pain, fatigue, and cognitive issues. It can be difficult to manage and can severely impact the quality of life. Nearly 5 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with this chronic condition. It usually shows up between the ages of 30 and 50, and 80% to 90% of the people affected are women. There is no cure, but a combination of exercise, modalities, and education can help manage symptoms. Physical therapists are well-known as experts in exercise, so they're an obvious choice when it comes to helping people with fibromyalgia. The right exercise routine can help these patients with pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, depression, and more. A combination of strengthening, stretching, and aerobic exercise is the most effective. Patients and therapists work together to find the right type and intensity of exercise to best manage symptoms. Therapists also have a large choice of other treatments to help people with fibromyalgia. Gentle manual therapy and massage have been shown to help reduce pain and muscle stiffness caused by fibromyalgia. Physical therapists also use modalities to reduce symptoms. Examples
include electrical stimulation, laser, biofeedback, and dry needling in states where it is allowed In addition to land-based exercise, some clinics also have the option of aquatic therapy. This combines the benefits of exercise with the warmth of a therapeutic pool. Because physical therapists spend so much time with their patients, they can handle the education component too. They help people with fibromyalgia understand what's going on, and what they can do about it. Research shows that people with more knowledge about their condition have better outcomes, more confidence, and cope better. Physical therapists help people with pain management, strength, mobility, fatigue, and function to relieve their symptoms and improve the quality of their lives. While we still don't have a cure for fibromyalgia, people can move through it with the right help.

Who do we need to talk to about bone health?
🏃‍♀️ Young female athletes who aren’t ovulating/menstruating regularly, maybe because of RED-S
🧍‍♀️Young women who aren’t active enough to reach their peak bone mass by their mid 20’s
💃 Peri menopausal women with normal bone mass/ mild bone changes (osteopenia)
🤷‍♀️ People with a clinical diagnosis of osteoporosis without any history of fractures
🤦‍♀️ People with more advanced bone changes, usually having sustained fractures, often at the wrist, hip or spine 
🦴 🦴 🦴 
Did you know we can lose up to 20% of our bone mass in the first five years post menopause?
That HT works optimally for bone health in this window of opportunity?
That HT isn’t enough by itself - we need to focus on #bone healthy nutrition (prunes, sesame seeds, yoghurt), exercise (strength, balance, flexibility), stress management (cortisol is bad for bone health!) and good sleep hygiene (women who sleep less than 5 hours a night have an increased risk of fracture) And of course bladder (urgency = rushing, fear of leaking lowers exercise participation) & bowel function (good gut health is essential to absorb nutrients) impact bone health too.
🦴🦴🦴
Plenty for us to work with, right?! But the first step is to start the conversation - bone health isn’t always a s*xy topic to discuss...but neither is the fact that 20% of women over 60 who fracture their hip are dead within 12 months...
🦴🦴🦴
So that’s the ‘why’...and if you’d like to learn more about the ‘how’ then check out my online Female Hormonal Health course - module 1 is all about the menstruating female and how we can optimise menstrual (and bone!) health..module 3 is a deep dive on menopausal health, esp musculoskeletal, covering muscle, joint & bone health

Absolutely love Danny’s art work! Check out the femoral triangle! 💕

Some highlights and fun facts:

🦵Inguinal lymph nodes: 

“The inguinal lymph node can be subdivided into the superficial and deep lymph nodes and collectively drains the a**l ca**l (below the pectinate line), the skin below the umbilicus, lower extremity, sc***um, v***a, g***s p***s, and cl****is. The lymph node's primary function is to filter for harmful substances as lymphatic fluids travel through its cortex, paracortex, and medulla” (Bui, 2021)

🦵Femoral neurovascular bundle:
The femoral artery, vein, nerve run together. There can injury to this bundle during total hip replacement surgery or prolonged positions during childbirth (typically on back with legs help up and compressed). 

🦵Femoral nerve: 
When the femoral nerve gets compressed or injured during childbirth, symptoms (of the birthing person- not baby) often present as: quadriceps weakness (particularly with walking backwards), reduced sensation in the front of the leg, and sometimes pain.

The good news is that recovery can be up to 70% (or more in other studies) and can take a few months or up to a year (Hollis, 2019).

* All of the patients I’ve seen with femoral neuropathy from childbirth recovered fully within months.

🚨 Brand new release Infographic 🔥 Pain or injury? Why differentiation matters in exercise and sports medicine ⁉️

▪️‘Pain’ and ‘Injury’ are not, and should not, be considered synonymous 

🔸Successful management of tissue injury cannot rely solely on pain responses because tissue healing is not directly related to pain. 

🔹Pain without identifiable pathology is common in athletes,and as a result medical labelling remains an ongoing challenge. 

🔸Therefore, the authors argue that, for the benefit of athletes, there is an urgent need for a clear distinction between pain and injury (see Infographic).

🔹Synonymous use of pain and injury in research and clinical practice may negatively impact clinical management. 

1️⃣First, benign and normal fluctuations in pain may be seen as signs of sports-related injury, which could impact performance negatively. 

2️⃣Second, viewing all pain as a direct sign of tissue injury may lead to underprioritising of psychological and social aspects of return-to-sport. 

3️⃣Third, athletes being told they are ‘injured’ can lead to unnecessary assessment and interventions, particularly when a clear clinical diagnosis is lacking yet the reports of pain remain severe. 

4️⃣Last, when pain is linked to unconfirmed injury, fear and anxiety may be heightened. 

🔸Indeed, current evidence shows fear avoidance, fear of reinjury and pain catastrophising are common in response to an injury in athletes.

Thus, a clearer distinction between pain and injury, paired with a person-centred and educational approach, seems necessary…

What is the pelvic floor and how pandemic life could be harming yours 08/20/2021

🔥 brand new #blogpost: The medicinal properties of eccentric muscle contractions 💊 🏋️ 

🔴Eccentric exercises (EEx) are well known in resistance training (RT) , injury prevention and rehabilitation and (chronic) disease management. 

🟠Eccentric training in rehabilitation has long been a subject of controversy as EEx are prone to elicit strong muscle damage, subsequent soreness (DOMS) and impaired muscle functioning. 

🟡Exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) and the hypothesis that EIMD is necessary for muscle growth would render EEx unfeasible for rehabilitation purposes: damage caused by EEx in the presence of musculoskeletal injuries would be downright harmful. 

🟢Muscle damage as a necessary precursor for muscle growth has been challenged by research demonstrating muscle restructuring, e.g. hypertrophy, happening without discernable damage. 

🔵Furthermore, eccentric training can occur without muscle damage if appropriately dosed…

🔗Link in bio to read further!

✅Key takeaways:

•EEx are part of the first line treatment for improving pain and function in most common tendinopathies

•A diseased tendon can be loaded with EEx, but also heavy slow resistance training and isometric exercises can improve pain and function

•Loading of diseased tendons with EEx should (re-)produce tendon pain, but pain should not be progressive or disabling. As always: systematic clinical reasoning and incorporation of patient values to optimize outcomes are key

•Treatment recommendations for Achilles and patellar tendinopathies are basically the same.

Understanding the different phases of the menstrual cycle 
🗓 📆 🗓 📆
Day 1 of your cycle is your first day of proper bleeding (not spotting)
Menstrual phase: this is when you’re bleeding, usually lasts 3-7 days, initially low oestrogen and progesterone, oestrogen starts to rise as we progress through follicular phase
Follicular phase: up to day 14 (ish)
Oestrogen and testosterone rise and peak just before ovulation, occurring at about day 14
After ovulation, the corpus luteum releases progesterone during the luteal phase. Oestrogen also rises again during the luteal phase.
Towards the end of the luteal phase, both oestrogen and progesterone drop, and menstruation is triggered again, if you’re not pregnant.
So, what does this mean?
🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️
During the menstrual/ early follicular phase, focus on anti inflammatory strategies. Carb and fat usage differ during the follicular and luteal phase.
🗓📆🗓📆
Tracking your cycle, mood, energy availability, sleep, libido and exercise performance - we’ll discuss the research around different exercise strategies at different points in the cycle but...n always = 1 and by tracking your cycle over the months, you can figure out YOUR patterns and plan appropriately!
👸🏼👸🏼👸🏼👸🏼
The next couple of posts will explore the specific effects of each hormone and how to decide when to focus on strengthening vs speed training!
🏋️‍♀️ 🏃‍♀️ 🧘‍♀️ 🛏 
Stay tuned!
And just a reminder, the Female Health Masterclass Series, looking at #menstrual #maternal and #menopausal health is on a pre-launch sale with special pricing until the course is released on August 1st - full details are in the link in bio if you’d like to learn more about female hormonal health and strategies to keep those hormones happy and healthy!

Why is it better to use a Personal Trainer who is a Physical Therapist? Some trainers have a certification that was attained in a weekend whereas with a Physical Therapist you have some who have a doctorate level education.

Trainers are to help people get to a whole new level of fitness and health. Physical Therapists are able to do the same exact thing as well as provide therapeutic elements to a workout routine as well as provide techniques to help prevent injuries.

Physical Therapists are also able to modify workout routines due to injuries to help get a person back to elite fitness sooner.

💥Hip Flexor Tightness💥

Our hip flexor muscles, the iliacus, psoas, re**us femorus, TFL, & sartorius, help us raise the knee up to the chest & aid in standing, walking, & running control. I hear a lot of complaints with "hip flexor" tightness that won't go away with stretching from many patients, especially if they tend to sit for work or do a lot of running.

🔺Often times when people complain of “tight” hip flexors, they are actually weak in these muscles: maybe from poor static strength or dynamic control, decreased hip & spine mobility, or a limitation between the nerve-muscle communication. You can do all the stretching in the world but adding in an exercise better targeted at the root cause of your tightness will be more effective in the long run💯

🔺The options shown here target hip mobility, central nervous system function, & isometric/concentric/eccentric strengthening. ⚠️Without assessing you individually, I wouldn’t know what exercise is most appropriate for you so if you need more guidance, schedule a visit with an orthopedic PT & get their professional opinion.
 
🔺When trying the strength options, make sure you really stabilize with your deep core muscles (not sucking in or bearing down!) so that you maintain neutral spine before moving your leg. When doing the breathing, focus on truly relaxing.
