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.

VIII paio di nervi cranici o Vestibolo-Cocleare.
La sua funzione è quella di gestire la parte vestibolare (equilibrio) e la parte acustica. Esso è composto da due parti distinte:
* Nervo vestibolare→ responsabile degli stimoli connessi alla gravità e alle accelerazioni lineari ed angolari della testa, quindi connessa all’equilibrio. Esso riceve informazioni dal ganglio vestibolare (di Scarpa) che si trova situato nella porzione profonda e laterale del meato acustico interno;
* Nervo cocleare→trasporta stimoli acustici provenienti dal ganglio spirale (di Corti) situato a livello di midiolo della coclea.
La parte vestibolare e cocleare hanno un’origine comune, tra il bulbo ed il ponte, ovvero nella fossetta retrolivare.
Il nervo vestibolo cocleare ha un decorso comune con il nervo facciale ed intermedio. Mentre percorre il meato acustico interno il nervo si divide nella porzione vestibolare e cocleare, penetra nell’orecchio interno andando a confluire nei suoi gangli (ganglio vestibolare dello Scarpa e ganglio spirale del Corti). La lesione del nervo vestibolo cocleare provoca:
* Sordità omolaterale o bilaterale se vengono colpiti i nuclei;
* Perdita dell’equilibrio.
Osteopaticamente si può: * Trattare il temporale in tutte le sue suture;
* Valutare e trattare il seno petroso inferiore. #anatomia#anatomy#postural#training#ilike#osteo#osteopathy#osteopath#osteopatia#kinesiology#studygram#massofisioterapia#fisioterapia#fisiologia#physiology#benessere#wellness#disfunction#disfunzioni#learning#acustico#vestibolo#coclea#cocleare#bulbo@medicinaol#repost

What happening - The Success Mindset Masterclass
2 days of getting your head right for the success you want to have. You can't be successful until you've worked out what it means, and what needs to change. Let me help you with that!
There will be 20 places available.
AND there will be a special price for those who stay on to join us for the Therapy Reimagined conference.
For all the Physiotherapist, Osteopaths, Chiropractors , or any health practitioner. I have a question to ask?
Are you mastering your craft? I ask this because it is so important that we always up skill our skills so that we can make more of a difference to the world. There are so many techniques, methods and instruments out there for us to utilise the treatment to be effective.
Yet in modern day healthcare, it seems to me that all about the numbers game on how many patient we can see in a week. Instead of being a clinic, it becomes a business which nothing wrong with that.
In my opinion, it is important for me to master my craft as a chiropractor, so that I can help as many people as I can. If I can master my craft or upskill myself to become the best chiropractic I can be, then money and exposure will follow @thekaropractors .#chirolife#chiropractor#chiropractic#thekaropractors#health#wellness#wellbeing#upskill#physiotherapist#physio#physiotherapy#osteopathy#osteopath#healthpractitioner#personaltrainer
Exercise is so important, not just including those from @drmarkhyman but also helps with eating and sleeping habit, improves your performance and aids concentration, making us overall happier people!
#repost@drmarkhyman with @get_repost
Exercise is important, but not necessarily for the reasons you might suspect.⠀
One of many reasons, is the impact it has on your brain health.⠀
Exercising to the point of breaking a sweat is a great brain optimizer because it releases BDNF or brain-derived neurotrophic factor, a Miracle-Gro for the brain that stimulates the growth of new brain cells and new brain cell connections. ⠀
When you exercise, your brain becomes more elastic. ⠀
It also helps to improve your mood, boost your energy, and reduce overall stress in your body and mind.⠀
Exercise can have an extraordinary effect on the rest of your day, jump-starting your metabolic engine and balancing your brain chemistry, blood sugar, and hormones so you make better choices.⠀
Even with the most hectic schedule, you can fit in exercise with these three strategies:⠀
1. MAKE IT A PRIORITY: Get your sneakers out of the closet, choose whatever clothing you’ll be most comfortable in for walking, and make sure it’s clean and accessible. ⠀
2. DO IT FIRST THING IN THE MORNING: Do your daily exercise first thing in the morning to jump-start your metabolism and set your day on the right course.⠀
3. MAKE IT FUN: While I hate to exercise, I love to play. I find different things that keep me fit like hiking, biking with a friend, or just turning on some music and dancing with abandon in my home.⠀
I gave this exercise to a musician (guitarist) yesterday complaining of right upper trap and neck pain: he sits with his trunk rotated and flexed and his right shoulder rolled forward over his guitar for a million hours a day. Normal sitting posture is the typical upper crossed syndrome: hyper-kyphotic, scaps protracted and anteriorly tipped, anterior head carriage. .
Purpose of this exercise:
▪️retrain scap positioning.
▪️strengthen the external rotators.
▪️exercise with the trunk in relative neutral (easier for first time exerciser). .
Other exercises given were wall angels, foam roller slides, & Txsp extension + GH mobility.
🚨SCAPULAR MOBILITY EXERCISES🚨
When working with someone recovering in shoulder rehab, part of warm-up drills, or overhead athletes🙋🏻♂️, we need to look at scapular motion and how it’s functioning⚙️. During 180 degrees of shoulder elevation, the motion comes from the shoulder joint (120 degrees) and scapular motion (60 degrees) (2:1 ratio). If the ratio of 2:1 is not❌ achieved, strain may be placed on the shoulder or adjacent structures.
👉🏻 The following exercises (SWIPE LEFT) allow scapular mobility while reducing shoulder activity. Each performed in frontal, scapular, and sagittal planes of motion:
🔹Scapular Clocks - High Pulley
🔹Scapular Clocks - Low Pulley
Use these in high rep schemes or for time!

Great advice from our osteopath Melissa🙌🏼🎒 DOES IT FEEL LIKE YOU’RE CARRYING BRICKS IN YOUR RUCKSACK⁉️ 🎒🧱
We can all relate to the struggle of fitting our necessities into a clutch bag when we are going out 💄👛
However, when we’re struggling to fit all our ‘necessities’ into our big work rucksack , we may have to rethink what we are actually putting in there🤔
1️⃣ Ask yourself do you need to be bringing your laptop/tools etc home everyday unless you plan to use it overnight 💻🔨
2️⃣ If it is essential, try to use both straps and pull the straps as tight as possible to dissipate the load and reduce the risk of your lower back going into extension‼️ To make an appointment

I was very proud to be invited to the Medical School of the University of Ottawa today, to introduce osteopathy to undergraduate medical students and discuss different topics related to integrative medicine.
Different workshops took place all day long, giving the chance to students to rotate every 50 mins through various stations, meeting with different practitioners (...). That all made them discover and understand the range of services we offer.

Practicing gratitude helps me focus on what is good, and is an essential part of my morning routine. 🙏🏻 This is one of those things where we know we should do it, but the difficulty is setting aside time to actually put it to practice. Take a few moments each day to reflect on what you are grateful for! 🦋 Getting into the habit of practicing gratitude is important for our self care. 💕 By taking the time to be mindful of the things you’re thankful for, you will be able to shift your view and take control of how you experience your world. 🌍
I thrust fanno male non li fate 🤐

Es. Rinforzo concentrici-eccentrici-pliometrici con biofeedback.
Che cos’è il biofeedback elettromiografico?
Il biofeedback elettromiografico si occupa di misurare l’attività’ dei vari gruppi muscolari, per fornire al soggetto informazioni continue e in tempo reale sul proprio stato di tensione muscolare.
Dal punto di vista fisiologico, il biofeedback elettromiografico misura il livello di scarica delle fibre nervose motorie che innervano il muscolo, ossia le minuscole correnti generate dalle fibre nervose motorie che comandano il muscolo. #fisiotherapy#terapia#fisioterapista#fisioterapia#attivitafisica#osteopathy#osteopath#tendinedachille#riabilitazione
The planet (their revolution time)
Being patient shows that you have hidden knowledge. There are beings who come into the world with this knowledge : they have projects, an ideal, and everyday they go to work, whatever happens, they persevere, they are stubborn. They are born under a good influence of Saturne, and as it is the time, Saturn, who always has the last word, their harvest is not only beautifull but abundant. Depending on the size of its orbit, each planet has its own periodicity. The moon, the satellite of the earth, travels the zodiac in just 28 days. Then, in ascending order, come Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn. And beyond Saturn, there is Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, whose revolution time are even longer. The influence of fast planet is brief, superficial, that of slow planets is deeper, more decisive. Depending on their nature, this realization requires different durations. It only takes a few years to have a job, start a family, and so on. To succeed in spiritual enterprises, for exemple to learn wisdom, love, patience, self-control, it takes a lot of time, because here, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto must also support them. Spiritual works is placed under the influence of slow planets that travel in huge orbits around the sun. #kundalini#shamanism#osteopath#healingcrystal#stone#cystalquartz#violetflame#lemurian#astral#astrology#druid#soulfamily#starseed#lightworker#crystalchildren#chakras#goldenray#crystalgrid#orionbelt#metaphysics#suryayoga#yogi#moldalvite#atlantis#archangel#energyfield#hologram#taoiste#sacredgeometry#oldsoul
My goal is not to change people's life.
Usually kids really enjoy when I use a bit of cracking techniques. It's fun, it makes sounds. First time someone cracked my back I couldn't stop laughing. But sometimes, you can be surprised by people.
I saw a kid for a second session today. When they arrived with his parents, his dad told me that his son really loved the treatment especially the second phase.
The second phase of my sessions, for kids, is made of soft techniques. The kind of techniques that really doesn't try to change people. The kind of techniques that just points out to tensions and offers a support to the patient.
So for the second time, this kid, who is really tensed by the way and has a lot of pain in his legs, was able to surrender a bit, able to decrease the pressure and to let its body live, which is probably something he's rarely done since his birth.
And the dad to conclude "He has less pain now. I don't know what you're doing but it makes him feel very good and relaxed"
My goal is not to change people's life. By not trying to, I guess it happens.
At least when it has to.
