🚨 DOES RUNNING GIVE YOU NECK PAIN?! 🚨

🏃🏽‍♀️ A common complaint from runners is that they finish a run and their neck or shoulders hurt.

📝 While this can be for a variety of reasons I’ve listed 3 common ones below:

1. Forward head and neck position while running: rounded shoulders and forward head for an extended period of time can become irritating, and will also make for a difficult time breathing properly.

2. Shrugged Shoulders: Running with your shoulders up to your ears for an extensive period of time can become irritating.

3. Neck breathing: Breathing from your upper chest using accessory muscles, vs the diaphragm.

🗣 Instead use these tips while running:

⭐️ Relax the shoulders

⭐️ Focus your eyes forwards vs looking downward

⭐️ Strength training for the scapular muscles

⭐️ Practice belly breathing - diaphragm vs the upper chest

Clam Shell Tip Tuesday

First Tip Tuesday of the year brought to you by none other than Dr. Williams!

❓ Have you ever been prescribed the clam shell exercise by your physical therapist? Or have you seen it on social media and then tried it on your own?

💪 Although it’s a great exercise to isolate your glutes (focusing on external rotation and abduction), it’s all about the form!

👀 Things we most often see:

❌ Excessive trunk rotation
❌ Poor positioning of the neck/head
❌ Minimal to no focus on the actual glute activation (patient feels the exercise working somewhere else)

⭐️ So…Here’s a few tips!

✅ Roll the pelvis forward. Think belly button to floor
✅ Place your hand at your hips to block excessive rotation
✅ Engage Abdominals
✅ Rest your head into your opposite arm
✅ Squeeze glutes prior to raising knee
✅ Focus on feeling the activation of your glutes during the exercise.

Over this past weekend Trish took on the outdoors in the Altra Lone Peak 7. As an avid Trail runner she gave us a quick breakdown of her experience!

"I’ve been wearing ALTRA for many years now and the Lone Peak 6 has been a staple in my rotation. So I was curious to see how the updates would be. So far on my initial impression, this shoe feels different.

When I slipped my bare foot into them, I felt the lateral column of the shoe (almost seemed to push you in), more cushion under foot, and considerably more volume in the forefoot. I have a very low volume foot just fyi. I was wondering if this would bother me on the trail.

It didn’t! I didn’t even notice that lateral aspect of the shoe, it didn’t feel like it changed the way my foot landed. I need to do more testing in them, but they’re very flexible and the cushion doesn’t feel overwhelming. I still had ground feel which is important to me.

For me they ran true to size. I was slightly in between sizes on the lone peak 6. If you have a low volume foot, you will have some excess fabric in the toe box, but it’s not enough, I don’t think, to be a bother. We’ll see how I feel after putting lots of miles on them.

As far as different terrain, I expect them to perform as well as the 6 which was great on technical terrain and in inclement weather. I will update as I’m able to take them out more and more.

So yes, if your looking for a good foot shaped trail shoe with a moderate amount of cushion, I would give the new model a try! "

🚨 Fix Your Clicking Hip 🚨

Do you ever notice a pop or click or snap when you raise your leg up and down? Maybe you notice it on runs or when your raising your leg up out of bed.

This is known as Snapping Hip Syndrome- which truly isn’t a huge deal especially if it’s not giving you painful symptoms.

If painful, we often try to temporarily modify the activities creating those symptoms while strengthening at these hip flexor muscles.

⭐️ Below are some great exercises to try:

1. Supine Hip Flexion
2. Seated Leg Raise
3. Standing Hip Flexion

Back Pain While Working

Back and neck pain are common complaints from sitting at a desk all day.

🏆 Our bodies crave movement. Our joints require it to stay lubricated and it’s needed in order to adequately circulate blood and oxygen throughout the body.

It’s no wonder that sitting in one position all day can become irritating and painful.

⭐️ So here are a few helpful tips for your work days:

1. Try these stretches every day, or even every hour!
2. Set alarms as reminders!
3. Drink a glass of water with each stretch break
4. Double check your actual desk set up (see previous reel)
