If you are following my good friend @physiojack_ you would have seen the progression ladder for the deadlift the other day.
Well here is mine for #squats. Obviously there are many more options and with each one of these there are further variations such as squatting to a box or with a specific tempo.
But when someone comes to me with an injury I am always looking for a way to keep them moving 🏋🏻♂️🏋️♀️ So with the use of progressions we can make sure you recovery quickly while still getting the work done.
If you are having issues shoot me a message 📬 and let’s see if we can’t get it figured out.
Like to see me do another one of these for other movements, let me know which ones below 👇🏻👇🏻
If your spine didn’t have curves, it wouldn’t be as strong as it is! 💪
Don’t believe me? Just google castles! It was harder for attackers to make curved castle towers collapse 🏰🤓
Your spine is STRONG, STABLE and RESILIENT!!!!
Don’t Look For Problems
Pain is more complex than something we can point at and say, ‘hey, your shoulder blade isn’t moving correctly so that’s why you’re getting pain.’
We’re better than that and we owe our patients better. If you don’t know what’s happening, be upfront about it.
Clear red flags 🚩 and work your way through the key areas as to why this person is in pain. The biopsychosocial nature of the pain experience means there’s more to it than just some ‘dysfunction’.
The language we use is so important that whatever you say will most likely stick in the minds of those you speak to and BS spreads. Be cautious of using fear mongering and non self-efficacious language and narratives. We don’t have to have it all figured out in one session and sometimes we never do.
To the patients: if you’re in pain, don’t go to a health practitioner for them to LOOK FOR and SOLVE your ‘problems’. A diagnosis isn’t what you should look for. You should be looking for a guided plan from someone who you can trust is on your side and who will teach you self efficacy, independence and not fear you into having to come back every week for a ‘tune up’ because your upper traps are ‘tight’ making your shoulder blade move ‘incorrectly’.
Take time to build a patient:practitioner relationship in order to piece each part of the puzzle TOGETHER.
Clinicians: stop blurting out problems just because you need a hard sell or because you don’t know what’s going on.
Patients: stop looking for a quick fix and a diagnosis that doesn’t mean much anyway.

9 FACTS EVERY PERSON NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT PAIN!
The entire series here all in one place! If you want more in depth explanations scroll down on my page to each of the individual posts and read the captions!
Wrist/Elbow: Chronic wrist pain 💥 has often been called the lower back pain of hand 🤚🏻 conditions. The wrist joint it probably the most complicated joint in the body because of its unique ❄️ arrangement and articulation of the radiocarpal and intercarpal joints. Injuries to the wrist can lead to significant and possibly permanent disability. A stable and pain-free wrist is a prerequisite for normal hand function 🤛🏼. In contrast, a painful, unstable or deformed wrist impairs function ❌. A significant condition related to the wrist or wrist carpal system is carpal tunnel syndrome. Defined as median nerve compression caused by excessive pressure on the nerve. This is the nerve in the wrist that allows feeling and movement 🤲🏼 to parts of the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to numbness, tingling ✨, weakness, or muscle damage in the hand and fingers ☝🏽. This condition is the most common repetitive motion injury in the work place 📚and ergonomic stressors ⌨️ are a major contributing factor. Incidences of this condition are on the rise as global computer 🖥 usage increases. Symptoms include intermittent pins and needles in fingers, possible numbness or stiffness.
Ankle Sprain: Pain 💥in the ankle and foot 🦶🏼 can arise from the bones 🦴and joints, soft tissues, nerve roots and peripheral nerves or vascular structures. Pain in the foot can also be referred from the lumbar spine or knee joint 🦵🏼. The greatest majority of painful foot conditions result from inappropriate footwear 👠, weak muscles 💪🏽, foot deformities or static disorders. The leg the ankle and the foot are subject to static injures more than any other skeletal unit in the body 🚶🏻♀️. The weight transmitting and propulsive functions of these structures are restricted daily by nonyielding foot coverings 👟. The human foot is uniquely specialized the metatarsals and toes enable toe body to stand erect 🕺🏻. The versatility of the forefoot allows us to retain an upright stance and allows for grace during walking 🚶🏻♂️, dancing 💃🏼 and athletics 🏂. Chronic ankle instability is a subjectively reported phenomenon that has been defined as a tendency to give way during normal activity and this instability can lead to sprains and strains 💥. Ankle sprains/strains can be caused by improper landing on the foot due to poor distribution of body weight on the foot 🦶🏼, uneven surfaces 🗻, improper shoes 👡, poor orthotics, muscle imbalances or pre-existing injuries. The patient may describe rolling onto outside of the foot with possible popping 🎈or tearing sensation, they may have a limp, inability to weight bear, swelling, bruising and limited range of motion of the joint ⭐️.

Reposted from @gaithappens - I have an affinity for this foot type. Especially when I see the 1% . It is often overlooked, it is complex, and when managed appropriately is a game changer. And I am so excited to work with this guy
We talk about this extensively in our Top Down Bottom Up course because if treated incorrectly can cause problems as we unfortunately are seeing here
First, there is a difference between forefoot SUPINATUS (more common soft tissue problem that results from overpronation) and forefoot VARUS (more rare osseous problem that causes overpronation)
This is a bilateral forefoot varus. Rare foot type when the forefoot is inverted relative to rearfoot due to an osseous problem involving the talus. Now the only way that to get that big toe down is to crank that foot into pronation
I do believe we have some soft tissue work to do here, but there are no exercises, not enough glut bridges out there to over come the forces driving that foot into pronation
Have a good orthotic lab handy. There is a time and a place. And this is one of the few times my lab will be getting a phone call
We’re going to bring the ground up to his foot starting at the rearfoot and get him into the appropriate footwear. ****you put an ortho under a supinatus foot . Yes we will be strengthening the foot, but the exercises will have to be modified to accommodate for the structure
Mon district was my main destination in Nagaland so I was excited to get there if my energy and body could survive the bad roads. I started the day in a tiny village and found and ancient marung or meeting place and hung with locals.
I continued driving up, up, up into the mountains and stopped at each and every village, curious to see their life up there. I had many great encounters and most of all the views were spectacular!
It was mid afternoon and I had not made many kilometres due to bad road conditions and only being able to go 15-20 kms per hour. I stopped at one of the only chai stands on the road for a break.
I was about to ride again when I saw some long haul Bikers. It turned out they lived in Mon, but we're from in the village next to the chai shop. We sat and talked about the condition of the roads, and they were so genuine, kind and helpful in their offering to organize a room for the night in Mon and for someone to meet me there and feed me.
I had my work cut out for me as I had 80 kms to go and only 3 hours of daylight. I went at it hard, fast, and focused, yet it was totally brutal, and in the end a bit scary, as the last hour of driving was in the pitch black night on shitty roads. Not fun at all folks.
So when I arrived to a crowd of people waiting for me I was a bit suprised. They were all staring at this muddy tired woman in black. Thy usherd me into the kitchen to a delicious hot meal of fish curry and then onwards to the guesthouse. His friend talked with me at length about their history and culture and took his leave.
I was never so glad to pour myself a double shot of whiskey and put my tired feet up on my balcony and bask in the light of the full moon. I had made it safely, thank God, and lived to tell the story.
Speaking as the Queen of Epilepsy; this comment is directed to all the Military who are starting to follow.
As the Queen of Epilepsy I have been a Canadian for twenty-seven years & I am one who looks up to our Canadian Military/Veterans. I have been a Royal Canadian Legion Member for many years & I see what is really happening behind closed doors. Many of both Canadian & American Troops come back with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which causes Non-Epileptic Seizures.
Dusty was one of my Leaders and his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder became so bad he started having Non-Epileptic Seizures & he could not look anyone in the eyes anymore. The fear inside him grew to be so strong that he pushed everyone away from him. I lost him, and the Queen of Epilepsy lost him to soon. There was nothing I could do, it was to late.
In Canada our Canadian Military/Veterans get treated very badly & I do not approve of that. They risk their lives to keep us safe and they come back with high Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that many commit suicide or end up living on the streets. ·
Coming from the Queen of Epilepsy; our Military go risk their lives to keep us safe & they do not get the respect they deserve. I do not approve.
I miss you Grandpa 💔 I will never forget that day you were rushed to Winnipeg Emergency and I was rushed to Brandon Emergency on the same exact day. You had to go in for emergency surgery & I was locked in a Tonic-Clonic Seizure. Yet we both made it Grandpa, we both made it. Love You. ·
Rest In Peace Johny 💔

♻WE ARE WHAT WE EAT.
When building muscle, it is necessary to eat a wide variety of nutrient-dense foods with the right blend of proteins, carbohydrates, and healthy fats.
📈Growing evidence supports the conclusion that consumption of high-quality protein (fish, eggs, meat, beans) promotes muscular hypertrophy. If you are trying to grow muscle, you should your intake between 1.2 and 1.7 grams per kilogram.
💡Evidence suggests that certain types of proteins, particular those high in leucine content (i.e.🥩, 🍗 and 🍳), appear to be more efficient at stimulating muscle protein synthesis.
🏋♂ Under a correct mechanical stimulus (i.e. weight training), the consumption of diverse sources of noble proteins associated with vegetables and carbohydrates with low Glycemic-Index should lead to healthy muscle grow.

If strength, power, and mitigating the risk of injury is your goal, finding and correcting weak links is crucial.
If you find yourself extending through the low back when pressing overhead or using your legs to gain momentum, your core might be the weak link.
This dumbbell overhead press from the floor removes all possible forms of compensation for a weak core or overall lack of overhead strength.
No legs removes the ability to push press when you’re supposed to strict press.
It also removes the ability to make up for a lack of overhead strength or a weak core be preventing excessive extension through the low back. If you do, you might tip over.
@birthfit H A N G O V E R is real... The BIRTHFIT SUMMIT is a yearly gathering of BIRTHFIT Leaders to reflect + set intentions as individuals and as a brand. We celebrate success. We also dig deep into our responsibilities moving forward + how we can better advocate and support our communities. Three words popped up for me in TX + keep replaying in my mind; community • compassion • connection • I still need some sit down quiet processing/reflection time from the incredible weekend, but I’ll be starting with those three words. ✨ BIG HUGE thank you and all the love to @lindsey_k_mathews for being a rockstar at what she does. You have changed my life LKM. You lead from the front with all the love and your vision to change the birthing world as we know it is in motion.

Amsterdam Wrist Rules
A Clinical Decision Rule for Wrist X-Ray
Wrist trauma accounts for ~20% of all injuries seen in Emergency Departments.
However, only ~39 % have a fracture.
A clinical decision rule that selects patients for radiography could be beneficial.
Walenkamp et al. (2015) derived a valid clinical decision rule that selects patients with acute wrist trauma in the Emergency Department for radiography. .
882 patients were analyzed; .
Distal Radial Fractures:
Sensitivity of 98%:
Increased Age (increased per 10 years) Swelling wrist Visible deformation Distal radius tender to palpation Pain on palmar flexion
Pain on supination Pain on ulnar deviation Pain on radioulnar ballottement test .
Any Wrist Fracture:
Sensitivity of 98%
Negative predictive value of 90%
Sweling of the wrist
Swelling of the anatomical snuffbox
Distal radius tender to palpation
Pain on radial deviation
Painful axial compression of the thumb was found to decrease the likelihood of any wrist fracture.
The Amsterdam Wrist Rules is a clinical prediction rule with a high sensitivity and negative predictive value for fractures of the wrist.
