Are we rehabbing the right system?

I have recently run across some research that has changed the way we look at some of the rehab I do, especially proprioceptive rehab. Perhaps it will do the same for you. We already know that needling can effect balance and proprioception, from some of the articles I have written here, here and here

The latissimus

 

The latissimus dorsi is THE functional link between the upper and lower extremity, particularly though its connections with the thoracolumbar fascia (1, 2). Affording itself a large attachment centrally from the T7 to L5 spinouses, laterally to the iliac crest and thoracolumbar fascia, rostrally to the lower 3 or 4 ribs and . . .

How's your Iliacus?

Have you thought about the importance of the iliacus? During gait? How about at initial contact and again at pre swing? (1) You realize it will be “turned off” if you have labral pathology, right? (2) Needling can be one way of “turning it back on”.(3)

Check out this brief video of one way to accomplish this.  . . .

Needling and Instability

 

As people who needle, we often emphasize needling the paraspinal muscles associated with the segemental innervation of the peripheral muscle you are needling. For example, you may needle the L2-L4 paraspinals (ie: femoral nerve distribution) along with the quads, or perhaps the C2 PPD’s along with the suboccipitals. We do . . .
