What WILL occur if normal ankle dorsiflexion cannot be attained??

》Limited dorsiflexion range of motion (DFROM) may contribute to ankle,foot, and knee injuries.
Including :
• plantar fasciitis
•ankle sprains
•achillies tendinitis
•forefoot pain
•navicular stress fractures
•calf muscle tightness
•anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)

Why is this a problem?

》Limited dorsiflexion impacts many of our functional movement patterns such as :
• squat
•single-leg squat
•lateral step down
•landing from a jump

REMEMBER .... there is one muscle that is responsible for dorsiflexion :

- the tibialis anterior muscle found in the anterior compartment of the leg this is the primary muscle that facilitates dorisflexion of the ankle joint.

SO.. how can DFROM be improved?
Using #activesiolatedstretching one can regain full range of motion in the ankle which can improve the knee function and hip flexor function too. One will be able to stretch and lengthen all ligaments & muscles from the ankle into the hips allowing for free movement without discrepancies.

If this sounds familiar and something feels stuck - contact 079 346 3985 for a consultation! Fix the problem now before it's a major problem later.

An unbalanced rider - affects to the rider & the horse!

A rider has a tremendous effect on the horse's biomechanics. Humans tend to have discrepancies from one side of the body to the other,which in return affects the way a horse moves whilst riding.

Examples of an unbalanced rider & the effects to the horse :
- uneven weight distribution on the saddle
- anterior/posterior Pelvic tilt
- a rider who is stronger on one rein vs the other
- a rider that has more mobility through one hip then the other

> These imbalances,without a doubt,transfer into the horse's movement. Additionally - stretching (AIS mainly) & strengthening the riders body sets both the rider and the horse up for success. Most riders aren't aware of the inconsistencies in their physical posture,strength,flexibility & mobility until they target these areas.

How will AIS assist?
- Active Isolated Stretching is designed to reduce pain in the human body caused by incorrect posture,post-surgical procedures,inactivity and injuries.
AIS will identify the imbalances in one's physique and by performing our set protocol - would be able to regain balance and equilibrium in the body as well as improve flexibility & mobility necessary for the best performance!

If this sounds like something that can help - contact 079 346 3985 or email [email protected] #Activeisolatedstretchingisthewayforward

THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME (TOS)


TOS is a term used to describe more then one disorder that occurs when their is compression, injury, or irritation of the nerves and blood vessels of the lower neck and upper chest area.


WHO IS AFFECTED?
> TOS affects people of all ages and gender
> TOS is common among athletes who participate in sports that require repetitive motions of the arm and shoulder ( swimming,tennis,squash,golf,volleyball)
> studies have shown TOS is more common in women than in men,particularly those with poor muscular development,poor posture or both 👆


SYMPTOMS?
> Neck,shoulder and arm pain
> Numbness or impaired circulation to the affected areas


CAUSES?
》it is known that when the blood vessels and/or nerves in the tight passageway of the thoracic outlet are abnormally compressed, they become irritated and can cause TOS.
》 TOS can be a result of :
> an extra first rib (cervical rib) or an old fracture of the clavicle (collarbone) that reduces the space for the vessels and nerves.
》 the following may INCREASE the risk of developing TOS :
> sleep disorders
>stress
> repetitive arm and shoulder
movements
> repetitive shoulder injuries
> weightlifting
> poor posture
> injury to the neck/back ( whiplash)
