The Diaphragm and Stability

The diaphragm plays a major role in establishing core (lower back, abdominal and pelvic) stabilization by contributing to an increase in intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). Weakness or dysfunction of the diaphragm means REDUCED IAP which leads to poor core stability during movement. This forces your body to develop compensatory movement patterns in order to find stability elsewhere. Unfortunately, this will eventually result in injury to the lumbar spine, hips, or pelvis. Potential for foot, ankle, and knee injury too? You bet! So if you only breathe from your chest, and not your abdomen, you are an injury waiting to happen!

Rocktape® for Inflammation

When it comes to acute injuries that present with moderate to severe swelling, Rocktape® is my "go to" weapon of choice. By lifting the surface of the skin away from the sub-cutaneous tissue, Rocktape® allows for increased blood flow to and from the area of injury. This results in the removal of inflammatory debris and reduced swelling.

Do You Use A Foam Roller?

Health Tip: Do you use a FOAM ROLLER? Do you know why you're using it? Do you roll over every spot that feels "sore" and "tight?" If so, you may be causing more harm than good, by releasing tissue that is "tight" because it is trying to keep your joints stable.
