The Rotator Cuff Strengthening

injuryrehabcentre Feb 11, 2019
 

I still see it at commercial gyms where people are doing shoulder external rotations at neutral (elbow tucked in at waist) in standing!!

The rotator cuff muscles, collectively abduct, externally and internally rotate the humerus. Now if you have a force that is directly trying to depress the humeral head and has the biceps work overtime to keep the elbow bent, it's not going to be doing much at the level of the rotator cuff muscle. More of isometric bicep hammer curl going through the transverse plane.

I am not saying your shoulder complex is not having to stabilise and zero contraction is happening but you need to know what you are trying to achieve!

Take gravity into consideration!
Perform the exercise in a side-lying position or use a cable/pulley machine to change the primary muscles involved with the movement.
Progress to shoulder abduction at 90deg and externally rotate the shoulder from there (progress from stable to least stability).

Disc bulges heal on their own!

injuryrehabcentre Feb 09, 2019
 

Do you have persistent back pain?
Have you had a scan and found that you have a disc bulge?
Have you been told that this is a permanent injury?
Well, there is good news!


Recent research has shown that up to 2/3 of disc bulges will spontaneously heal on their own and often within a few months! Our discs are strong, robust, they never slip and now we know they self heal!

This highlights further that conservative management of disc bulges through exercise is the most effective way of getting rid of your low back pain rather than resorting to surgery!

Pain Vs Gain!

injuryrehabcentre Feb 08, 2019
 
When it comes to starting out exercise for the first time or after suffering an injury, there can be a few barriers stopping you from getting back into it!
 
Some of the more common barriers is a lack of time. Unfortunately, this is the most common one we see. Making time to take care of our health and well-being needs to be held as a higher priority.
 
Fear of pain or pulling up sore from exercise can be another barrier. Unfortunately, pulling up sore from exercise to some degree is inevitable, even when taking things slow and steady. This is just a normal biological response from the body and very rarely would have any correlation with tissue damage.
 
Here at the injury rehab centre, we love utilising our super session to go through elite testing to get to the true cause of your pain, which provides you with a specifically tailored program to get the best results. We also love providing guidance through our group rehabilitation classes!
