I love helping clients achieve their goals!
Here is a nice tip to help with self management of shoulder pain! Movement imbalances contribute to limited tissue healing and nagging shoulder problems that don't seem to heal! If you have ongoing pain, reach out for a consult.
Thoracic spine mobility is a common problem! It is the primary culprit in a large number of shoulder, neck and low back issues. Here's a quick series of mobility drills that can help treat and prevent these issues!
Here are some helpful tips for performing kettlebell swings! If you feel sore in your back and shoulders after performing swings, take some time to practice these movements. Swings should be primarily targeting your glutes and hamstrings!
Shout out to Matt Butler and Mobilize Fitness for turning me on to the kelevator! This is a great upper body pulling drill to incorporate with the tall kneeling posture. Collegiate swimmer approved by my client Clare.
Don has had chronic back pain for nearly 20 years that has prevented him from lifting weights and working out effectively. I am so happy to help him regain his lost function and get back to the lifestyle that he enjoys!
so proud of my client Rachel! Her core is coming back after pregnancies and two C-sections!
this client has not been able to lift weights using his lower extremity for several years due to fear of his chronic back issues. With performance-based sport physical therapy, we develop personalized movement prep, coach the pattern, load the pattern. Rise Stronger!
Finally able to begin sprinting without pain! Here at Fenix we get results!
Having FUN with FUNdamentals!
Here is a fun balance challenge for us aged gentlemen. Take off your shoes and your socks placing them in front of you. Next, perform a single leg dead lift to pick up and put on both the sock and shoe, all while not touching down. 😆
oh boy! Time to get started on some running form drills. After not being able to run comfortably for 2+ years, it's time to rise stronger!
Our mission here at Fenix is to help people Rise Stronger! That will mean different things to different people. For this client, it means making sure that her hands are able to operate the tools she needs to take care of her farm and her horses! let's get to work!
2 years post ACL and NOT better!
Movement screening has been a crucial part of my treatment methodology for over 10 years. Utilizing the FMS helps to identify pain and movement asymmetries before they become major problems.￼￼￼ If you are being bothered by nagging injuries, or if your rehabilitation seems to be progressing slowly, you would likely benefit from a screen and custom corrective exercises to improve your movement quality and training potential.￼ I see clients like this all the time who were not properly managed and never regained their full function after surgery or injury. Come to Fenix, it's never too late to Rise Stronger!￼
