Life In The Lateral Lane–Lateral Lunges

Life In The Lateral Lane Better Motor Control With Medicine Ball Lateral Lunges Most gym activities are front to back movement patterns.  We call this sagittal plane training.  Running, elliptical training, and biking, all are predominantly sagittal plane activities.  In athletics and daily activities, a great deal of movement is side to side or frontal plane movement.  Most of the motor control issues we find in physical therapy and fitness clients involve poor control of side to side (frontal plane) movement patterns.  The lateral lunge with a medicine ball is a simple exercise that will resolve many of these problems.  Read the rest of this article and watch the video.

Curbing Binge Eating

Curbing Binge Eating Jenny was a new client a few years back. She started training four to five times per week consistently. She ate a healthy diet, most of the time.

What changes needed to be made in order for her to see results? I asked her to log her food intake and activity as accurately as…

While these activities have kept me active, they haven’t specifically addressed my growing interest and needs for proper nutrition and for strength, balance, and mobility.

The Home of Golf

The Home of Golf Walking the Golf Courses of Scotland My wife and I took an eight-day trip through Scotland.  The countryside is beautiful and driving on the left side of very slender roads is an adrenaline-charged experience.  Scotland is the birthplace of golf and the Scots are proud participants in this ancient sport.  I was surprised to find that the Scots walk when they golf.  In Inverness, Glasgow, Edinburgh, up and down the stunning hillsides of Skye--no golf carts.  People of all ages easily travel through eighteen holes of fairly hilly golf course terrain.  Most of the over forty golfers used push carts, and I saw several sixty plus golfers who used a battery-powered cart.  All of the younger…

Get The Most From Your Physical Therapy Treatment

Get The Most From Your Physical Therapy Treatment Top Tips See the Same Physical Therapist at Every Session. First and foremost, you need to see the physical therapist--not the physical therapy assistant, not the athletic trainer, and not a massage person. Shrinking physical therapy insurance payments have created innovative methods of providing “physical therapy” with less expensive employees. A consistent set of well-trained eyes and talented hands is one of the best ways to assure that every session of your physical therapy treatment is beneficial. Communication between co-treating physical therapists is often poor. I know it should be recorded in the clinic notes, but today’s documentation is written to optimize billing and not patient care. You will get the best…
