Facilitation

While running intervals on a cool 19 degree morning, something dawned on me. My left knee was hurting from some patellar tracking issues, but only on initial contact and toe off. I generally run with a midfoot strike. I began concentrating on my feet, lifted and spread my toes and voila! my knee pain instantly improved. Very cool, and that is . . .

Needle that SCM!

This article goes along well with the last one I published.

Iliocapsularis update

you know about this guy?

I have written before about one of my favorite muscles for dysfunctional hips, the iliocapsularis. See here and here to catch up.

 

Silvrback blog imageAs you are probably (hopefully?) aware it has its proximal attachment at the anterior-inferior iliac spine and the anterior hip capsule (1), though it does not attach to the labrum (2). Its inserts . . .

The SCM and Gait

We remember that we have 3 systems that keep us upright in the gravitational plane: The visual system, The vestibular system and the proprioceptive system. As we age, we seem to become more dependent upon the visual system to maintain stability of the head (which is largely under the purview of the vestibular system).  Older folks seem . . .

The 1st MTP

Functional Anatomy, Trigger Points and More...

Good Morning

 

I just released a new video excerpted from a recent Level 2 TPDN course. It's about one of my favorite articulations, the 1st MTP. One of the most important and most distal joints involved with the gait cycle whose dysfunction leads to a constellation of problems north in the kinetic chain.

 

Enjoy . . .

The QL...in all it's glory

Today we are going to look at what I feel is one of the most important muscles to evaluate and treat with low back pain patients, as well as those with gait and lower extremity disorders. 

Let's look at some of the functional anatomy of the QL.

It is useful to think of the QL as having three divisions. Though they can’t . . .

The Quadratus Femoris

An often overlooked culprit

We often find clinically that the quadratus femoris as becoming the 1st dysfunctional muscle of the deep 6 external rotators (1) and its pain referral pattern can mimic the piriformis (2) and piriformis syndrome (3) as well as hamstring insertional tendinitis.  It has also been implicated in some cases of . . .
