10 Oct: A Guide on “Knocked Knees” or Inwardly Collpasing Knees

Knocked knees are a result of the body trying to find joint actions it is naturally missing in order to complete the gait cycle, or allow for full human movement. This comes at a cost of stressing tissues and joints around the pelvis and knee. To fix it, we should start with the root of the problem – the pelvis in Anteiror Tilt.

05 Oct: What To Do about Winged Scapula & Outwardly-Pointing Shoulder Blades

Winged scapula are often a result of the shoulder blade not being able to glide freely on the ribcage due to compression within it (poor breathing mechanics). This causes the scapula to deviate outward in an attempt to find more movement.

04 Oct: Pronated & Flat Foot Arches – The Fix

If your feet are flat, you are not going to get your arch to “re-rise” without a lot of help, especially from something like an orthodic. Pay attention to your pelvis because it’s a primary factor.

04 Oct: Hip Hike & Lateral Pelvic Tilt – The Fix

Lateral pelvic tilt is often a result of a compensatory strategy the body has adapted to because of an imbalance of musculature within the pelvis. We want to address that by giving more "pushing" muscles on the higher side and more "weight-bearing" muscles on the lower side.

04 Oct: The Massively Underrated Role of Breathing in Posture

Breathing involves many joint actions at both the ribcage and pelvis. If you cannot breathe well, your skeleton is likely biased in a state of inhalation or exhalation. Being stuck in a given orientation of joint actions can restrict other ones, resulting in certain tissues and structures repetitively being stressed over time.

04 Oct: How High Foot Arches Can Limit Your Movement

High arches prevent the arch from dropping and lowering into the ground in walking/running. This causes a lack of “yielding” into the ground which can result in many compensations. In order to address this, we should re-teach the missing link: Pronation and also likely internal rotation.

04 Apr: How I Fix Elbow Pain in Baseball Players

Baseball and elbow pain go together like bacon & eggs. Fixing elbow tendonitis and pain in baseball players requires thinking globally, as opposed to just the elbow.

27 Mar: Should you try to alter your gait and running mechanics?

Our brain is seeking stability. But we need to be able to go through the “typical” gait cycle as normally as we can if we are to conserve the most energy. If we lack a range of motion we do not possess, compensations can occur up and down the chain to “find” that range of motion that might be lacking where we need it.
