โœ… This clear, simple guide includes step-by-step sensory integration exercises and guidelines for how to perform them, as well as guidance on how to choose the right sensory integration tool for each technique.

โฌ‡๏ธBack Pain + Tightness Rehab

๐Ÿ“š Here are FOUR AWESOME EXERCISES!! Save this for later.

๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ The thoracic spine consists of 12 vertebrae โ€“ the largest area when compared to the neck and lower back. It is able to move in all planes of motion. It also helps to facilitate the movement of the arms with its relationship to the shoulder blade, provides a stable base for the neck, and is paired with the ribs to influence breathing. It is such an important area that is often forgotten!

โ›น๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธGood movement in the thoracic spine is essential to remain pain-free for sports and modern-day lifestyles. Posture, or the ability to keep a relatively normal thoracic curve, can be easily compromised due to long hours spent at desk jobs, on the internet, studying and certain sports like cycling, leading to negative changes in thoracic posture - decreased mobility and increased tension.

๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธThis foam roller four exercise routine is a great way to increase the mobility of the back and work towards the goal of better/easier movements!

๐Ÿ“šMedial Tibial Stress Syndrome (MTSS) or โ€˜shin splintsโ€™ describes a repetitive stress injury of the anteromedial shin region. This issue typically causes pain along the middle-distal tibia that is provoked with exertion.

๐Ÿ”ŽThis condition typically involves situations where the body is not able to heal due to excessive loading. Following this logic, the vast majority of MTSS cases can be controlled by managing the stress that is being applied to the system. This could include manipulating these five major variables:

1๏ธโƒฃTraining frequency, volume or intensity
2๏ธโƒฃTechnique/form
3๏ธโƒฃEquipment (training surface, shoes)
4๏ธโƒฃNutrition
5๏ธโƒฃResistance training

โœ…Exercises like those shown in this post from Rehab Science will help reduce pain and improve the musculoskeletal systemโ€™s ability to tolerate load.

๐ŸŒ€ By positioning your arm away from your body, it also allows greater blood flow to the rotator cuff muscles, which helps speed recovery.

๐Ÿช‘ Sitting all day?

๐Ÿง Are the hips and lower back tight?

๐Ÿ‘‰ This *might* be why. When we sit and melt into our chairs, the front side of the body can become shortened. Upon standing up, this shortness often results in anterior pelvic tilt.

๐Ÿ”ต In order for the body to stand up straight with an anterior tilted pelvis, the low back becomes compressed.

โœ… If youโ€™re a sittter, see if rolling out your quads helps to bring balance back to your posture. ๐Ÿ‘

๐ŸŒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธPosture is about more than standing up straight, it is an important party of your long-term health. We all should make sure that we are holding the body the right way, whether moving or still, to help prevent injuries and/or other health problems. The key to good posture is the position of the spine. The spine has three natural curves - at your neck, midback and low back. Correct posture should maintain these curves, but not increase them.

โ›น๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธIn this video is using some exercises to address shoulder and mid back mobility. Mobility issues that develop can result from several types of activity and/or inactivity. Some of the most common types of issues are impingement, rotator cuff tear, frozen shoulders, and more! It is important to know your limited ROMs and use exercises to help, if you experience pain in these positions - these might not be the exercises for you!

๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธExercises to help improve your strength!
1. Prayer stretch with lift offs
2 Thoracic rotations
3 Thoracic rotations 2nd variation
4 Scapular push ups
5 Shoulder mobility drill
6 Banded external rotation

๐Ÿ˜Use these as a warm-up or for those recovery days. If youโ€™re someone who suffers from shoulder instability or shoulder pain, give them a try! These will really help open up the mid back! The Thoracic spine needs some love โค๏ธ

Hip Mobility Tools

๐Ÿ‘‰ Ideas for tight hips ๐Ÿ‘‡

๐Ÿค•When it comes to mobility training, the hips should be a primary area of focus. Thereโ€™s good reason for that: itโ€™s one of our ball-and-socket joints in the body, and thus is primed for mobility by design. For most of us, the ability to adequately use our hips leaves a lot left to be desired, and unfortunately, a lack of adequate movement in the hip joint can be a precursor to lower back pain, knee pain, and increased susceptibility to injury, particularly during athletic endeavours.

โ›น๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธHip mobility is essential to the proper full functioning of the hip joint. While the hip joint is meant to be more stable and less mobile than the shoulder joint, it can still be extremely limiting and even harmful if the hip joint lacks its full mobility. There are many structures (15 muscles, 3 major ligaments, etc) that cross the hip joint And move it or stabilize it. Therefore, it is a complex joint that needs to be operating at its fullest in order to create peak athletic performance and prevent injury.

๐ŸŒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธSo if you are suffering from tight hips from sitting at work or driving back home, these targeted exercises can help. They can help with tight hips, hip pain, hip flexor tightness, glute tightness, back pain and back tightness! Work towards unlocking your hip flexors and low back pain!

๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธEXERCISES:
1. Standing hip CARs 2. 90/90 hip stretch
3. 90/90 hip thrusts 4. Banded Hip flexor march
