Preventing injuries is a difficult feat because there are so many different factors involved. Increasing the tissues capacity to tolerate load can help reduce the risk of injury. This blog post will define what tissue capacity is and the role it plays in rehabilitation and preventing injuries.
If you’ve suffered an injury in the previous two years, chances are someone has told you to do some sort of mobility work (foam rolling, lacrosse ball, stretching, etc…). Low back pain? Roll on it. Knee pain? Roll on it. Headaches? Uh, I guess roll on it. It seems like mobility work is the answer for every sports injury. This blog post will discuss why mobility work doesn’t fix everything and what you should be doing to prevent sports injuries.
Exercise therapy seems to be a panacea for just about all human aliments (depression, anxiety, low back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, etc…). Sometimes it isn’t clear how exercise can help with tissue healing such as tendinopathies and cartilage issues. This post will discuss how exercise can help with musculoskeletal tissue healing.
