Whether you are an athlete, weekend warrior, or want to improve your function; Everyone is required to move.
The body is a group of systems that work together to provide movement and health. When one of these systems is compromised the entire structure can fail. This is what recovery science is all about. Dr. Sarah and her team work together to find what's holding you back from reaching your optimal performance. We want you to be the best, most functional person for your sport, family, and yourself.
What causes muscles to "Shut off"?
-Repetitive use of the same muscle (hockey, running, cycling, swimming, kickboxing) causes neurogenic inflammation and muscle breakdown.
-Physical trauma such as a fall or whip lash causes inflammation decrease neural output.
- Arthritis, causes chronic inflammation in the joints and muscles attaching to the joints. This again decreases neural input to the muscles.
Without proper stretching and repair, muscles put down scar tissue and calcium. This blocks the motor nerve innervating the muscle causing weakness and compensation. There is no pain during this process, the pain comes with the compensation and unequal distribution of forces.
How does injury happen?
Muscle compensation is what causes injury happens.
Proper technique and mechanics are vital when it comes to training. In order to maintain proper technique equal force must be produced from both sides of the body, therefore muscles need to be equally strong.
How do you Reactivate a Muscle?
Reactivation can be done through motor never stimulation from technique such as;
Isolated activation exercises
Nutrition to hep maintain and build proper fascial patterning
A functional assessment is designed to find the weak muscle, so it can be treated and proper exercises can be prescribed.
