Everyone sits more then they stand and walk.  Everyone sits more then they stretch.  Everyone sits more then they run or exercise.  Even the best of us are guilty.  As a result, the hip flexor muscles are consistently tighter then they should be due to the shortening of the muscles in a seated position.  In this video we show you how you can do a simple screen for tight anterior hip region mobility loss.

Here’s a quick tip on how you can help yourself overcome one of the most common shoulder complaints.  Weather you have anterior or posterior shoulder pain – chances are you have a loss of mobility in the posterior capsule of your shoulder.  Some deep tissue mobilization can easily restore that internal rotation at the shoulder joint so your shoulder blade/scapula does not have to “cash that extra check” and rotate as compensation.

Congratulations to strong safety James Ihedigbo  for being part of the Super Bowl Championship Baltimore Ravens Football Club.  James came to us when he was part of the New York Jets two years ago and was eventually traded to the New England Patriots where he played for two seasons and went on to be part of last year’s Super Bowl squad.  He was traded to the Baltimore Ravens this off-season and this time he was part of a magical season in which they where able to compete at the highest level and win the Championship.

Here’s a quick test that you guys can do to check if you are @ risk for ACL problems now and in the future.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

I am a relatively fit “50 something” who works out regularly, but suffers from a herniated disc…..L4/L5………off and on for 15 years.  When I first visited Dimitry, I couldn’t stand up straight, was in significant pain, and most importantly, couldn’t even think about playing golf.  Four weeks later I won my flight in my club’s most important tournament.

It was an eye opening experience how Dimitry diagnosed my problem, developed a very clear plan, laid out the frequency of visits and work in between visits, and critically encouraged me to get me back to full health.  I didn’t know I had a “core” until I met Dimitry.  Now I work on it every day.  And, because of the strengthening of that core, am hitting the ball better than ever before.

But, it goes well beyond golf.  He’s taught me the simple things, like how to stand properly………how to walk properly……..how to sit at my desk properly, how to stretch.  It all adds up to a healthier back and a stronger body, which makes me a more upbeat and happier person.  I can’t thank him enough for his diagnosis, persistence, support, encouragement and friendship.  It’s literally changing my life.
