Periodisation for cricketers!

Uncategorized Jan 28, 2019
 
One of the biggest injury woes for the Australian cricket team over the last decade has been back injuries in our fast bowlers, in particular, stress fractures. The main scapegoat for this was too much bowling! However, following the strength and conditioning principle of periodisation, it appears that it is not quite the case! 

The main issue was the fast bowlers were doing too little in the lead up to a test series and then when it came to game time the load on the body was significantly greater than their usual training load! Another key factor was that the players were not having an adequate rest after the spike in activity and load, leading to a lot of overload injuries.

This principle applies to everyone no matter what your fitness level and training goals! Having a steady training volume and avoiding big spikes in training load are highly valuable! Also, don't underestimate the value of rest! At TIRC we use the latest technology and equipment to guide you through your...

Shoulder surgery: Is it a waste of time?

injuryrehabcentre Jan 28, 2019
 

Shoulder pain is a huge issue across the general population with 4.5 million visits to the doctor each year and costing US $3 billion treating them!

Multiple studies have shown there to be no difference between a sham surgery and the subacromial decompression surgery. After 40 years it has been shown that you can argue it has been nothing more than a placebo. This is not the first trial to show these results, with up to 5 studies showing the same results!

This highlights the benefits of managing shoulder pain conservatively with exercise to get the best results that empower you, improves your general health and saves a lot of wasted time recovering from surgery.

Top 3 reason why heels spurs are okay

injuryrehabcentre Jan 28, 2019
 

Have you been told that you have a heel spur? and it is the reason for your heel pain? The image of a real cowboy spur like the team logo of the San Antonio Spurs often comes to mind when we hear this diagnosis.Thankfully this is far from the case! Here are three reasons why:

1/ A 'heel spur' is simply a bony adaptation to strengthen the local tissue and make it more robust! What a clever system we have! 

2/ The bony adaptation is not a sharp nasty looking bone, like what you see on a cowboy's heel spur.

3/ In fact, there are plenty of people out there who have 'heel spurs' with no heel pain at all!

Back surgery based on MRI results

injuryrehabcentre Jan 27, 2019
 

Do you suffer from back pain? Have you had a scan for it?
Studies have shown that more than 50% of patients would undergo spinal surgery purely based on the results of their MRI scan, even if they had no pain!!

We know that "abnormalities" on your back scans are considered normal age-related changes and have little or nothing to do with your pain when such a high population will have the same findings on their scan yet have no pain. 

Don't fall victim to an outdated medical treatment. Find out the true cause of your pain, not just by taking a really high tech photograph of your back which only makes up a small piece of the puzzle.

Knee joint loading exercises

injuryrehabcentre Jan 27, 2019
 

Are you a runner or a High-intensity interval trainer/ group fitness enthusiast? Do you suffer from knee pain? You do a lot of running and jumping, so they should be enough right? Unfortunately, that is far from the case! 

Without adequate strength training, our muscle is not exposed to anywhere near enough load to make adaptations to ensure they have the capacity to tolerate these high loads! So if you have any issues with these activities and you're not doing strong training, you are setting yourself up for failure! You can't go wrong with getting strong!

Top 3 reasons why it's okay to bend your spine

injuryrehabcentre Jan 26, 2019
 

Have you been told that you shouldn't bend your back and that it is dangerous? We can assure you that is simply not the case! Here are three reasons why:

1. Our spines are designed to move in all directions, including bending forward! 
2. We have 24 joints in the spine, all of which are designed to bend.
3. Research shows that bending has the ability to increase the hydration of our vertebral discs and can reduce the risk of disc injuries.

The circle of activity tolerance

injuryrehabcentre Jan 26, 2019
 

So many of our aches and pains are a result of our muscles simply not having enough activity tolerance! Whether its neck or back from your office job, knee pain from running or shoulder pain from lifting. 

If our current tissues capacity is not adequate enough to tolerate the stressors and strains of everyday life tasks, then it is highly likely you will run into some issues.

This is why developing a bigger tissue capacity or tolerance through exercise can have a profound impact on reducing daily aches and pains, as the boundaries of your tissue capacity is no longer being stretched to its limit on a daily basis.
