🆘️Spinal injuries arent fun. They incapacitate your entire mechanism and shut down your nervous system leaving you weak and dysfunctional for weeks if not months depending on the severity it could even be years.🆘️🏥 After attaining the worst injury Ive ever had (even left me hospitalized for a few hrs) I realize that I have to take extra care of my spinal health to ensure this never happens again.🏥
⛅After 19 days of taking it easy. I.e resting and gentle stretching, the official rehab begins.⛅
🌞Here is my routine for today. Just a few simple moves to get the spine moving, hips stretched, and core active.
✔1.Downward Dog to Plank (for spinal mobility, core activation and posterior stretch)
✔2.Hip Flexor Stretch with PNF (for anterior, lateral and posterior hip stretch)
✔3.Birddog (for unilateral core activation)
✔4.Isometric Lateral Hip Activation to Hip Hinge (to strengthen hip stabilizers and re program hip mechanics)
✔5.Standing TFL and Hip Stretch (for a lateral hip, quad and glute stretch) ⛅Repeat twice and if you feel tired rest... dont go too hard in your first week of rehab. Low and slow baby. Low and slow...⛅ 💙💙💙PM me if you need some guidance for a rehab program for your spine, hips and everything appendicularly in between.💙💙💙 #injuryrehab#rehab#athletescare#stretches#mobility#strengthtraining#strength#workout#exercise#movement#athleticrehab#toronto#torontopersonaltrainer

Weirdo recommendation of the day: 🦶CorrectToes! 🦶They’re not actually so weird..
Our feet are designed to splay and for our toes to have space to articulate. Wearing shoes all our lives hinders our feet’s ability to perform optimally.
. @correcttoes help restore circulation and function to our feet, and can be worn in shoes that will fit them, or while you’re sleeping/lounging at home. See their profile for recommendations of shoes that can fit them, and more ideas for how to gradually add CorrectToes or a more natural fitting shoe into your life.
It’s important to make changes gradually. Try wearing these for 30 minutes/day at home, and each week add another 30 minutes.
These were an important part of my recovery from 4 years of plantar fasciitis/fasciosis.
If you’re in Portland you can visit NW Foot and Ankle (natural podiatrist and shoe store) and meet the pros themselves who make these!

What is Athletic Therapy?!?! I hear this a lot, followed by ‘but I’m not an athlete..’ Athletic Therapy works with any muscle, bone or joint injury, athlete or not! We help with old or new injuries. What if I didn’t ‘hurt’ myself, my back/shoulder/wrist/hip is just sore?!? We help that too!
Where we differ from physio is when you book an hour you get an hour of one on one time. Forget getting hooked up to machines and left for 30 minutes. Each session is a little different based on your needs that day. We ask you come in comfortable clothing and be ready to move. Each session may include Graston, ultrasound, muscle stim, massage techniques, stretching, cupping and exercise. You will be given homework and a plan for your rehabilitation. We are here to create the optimal environment for you to get back to what you love but you need to work too!

Shout out to @michaelarmbruster97 who leveled up to red level @ssperformancetraining & fitness program.. We are proud of you Michael, who just “tried” out a class with his brothers in hope to do some exercise to be healthy, but in turn he fell in love with fitness, got super fit, and soared in confidence. We have enjoyed being a part of your journey to health and fitness🔥💪🔥. • The #spt levels are black, grey, red, and gold... We see a gold shirt🏅👕 in your future 🔮. Strong work!
Kettlebell swings work your glutes, abs, hamstrings, quads, back, and shoulders to help improve your posture! Increased power and strength in these muscles can also lead to improved athletic performance. Remember to be as explosive as possible, and keep your hips tucked under, your head position neutral, and your abs tight!
