⁣⁣Standing Posture, Hip Joint Loads & The Management of Hip Pain ✍🏻⠀ ⠀ In recent years, particularly in the social media sphere, there has been a lot of negative publicity directed towards management approaches for musculoskeletal pain that incorporate postural and/or movement training.⠀ ⠀ The criticisms usually hang on two main assertions:⠀ ⠀ ✔️Postural and/or movement training will induce hypervigilance and fear avoidant behaviour &⠀ ✔️That the body is robust and will simply adapt to overcome any loading scenario⠀ ⠀ I would certainly agree that there are potential adverse effects associated with health and exercise professionals leading people to believe there is only one ‘correct’ posture, or teaching people to consciously maintain some inefficient form of active muscle holding – most commonly an abdominal or gluteal contraction in the context of hip pain presentations. However, we cannot completely ignore the influence of loads encountered during sustained postures or repetitive movements. We are all affected by gravity and how we position our body segments relative to gravitational forces, strongly influences the distribution of loads across our bones, joints and soft tissues. Sustained or repetitive end-range hip postures or movements will result in disproportionately high edge-loading (loading around the outer edge of the joint), and increased loads on the adjacent soft tissues. It’s simple physics really. Whether this disproportionate or excessive load ever results in tissue damage, pain or dysfunction is another matter. In the development of pathology, multiple factors are usually implicated, and different combinations of factors are at play for different individuals. There is also a well-accepted disconnect between pain and pathology.⠀ ⠀ Read the whole blog by Alison Grimaldi. Link in bio 🔗

AVOID TOO MUCH TOO SOON⁣ ⁣ Great post from @dr.jacob.harden 👏🏻 As we step into a new year, it is likely that many of us have set goals that we want to achieve.⁣ ⁣ So I felt that this was a timely and important message.⁣ ⁣ A lot of people want to know how to prevent injuries or, better put, reduce the risk of injury (since we never 100% "prevent").⁣ ⁣ And the truth is, there isn't a magical exercise, routine, or stretch that is going to reduce risk of injuries. Risk comes from exposure and how prepared you are to handle that exposure.⁣ ⁣ Your current level of preparation is the product of genetics and what you have exposed your body to prior, which will influence your current levels of fitness and fatigue.⁣ ⁣ You may hear this referred to as your Acute and Chronic Workloads, which I'll dive deeper into in another post.⁣ ⁣ And while preparation certainly can be complex, and social media loves to make it look complicated, for 99% of us, it really doesn't have to be.⁣ ⁣ Choose a goal, start slow, push adequately, rest periodically, and show up consistently.⁣ ⁣ We all have goals and those goals are important.⁣ ⁣ But it's going to be a lot easier to reach those goals if you stay consistent. And it's going to be much easier to stay consistent if you stay healthy.⁣ ⁣ So whatever goal you are chasing, ease into the process.⁣ ⁣ You'll gain momentum. Not only in terms of motivation and success but also physically. Your body will adapt and become better prepared.⁣ ⁣ You don't need to run your body into the dirt to achieve success. Believe me, things can always be made more difficult. But let yourself grow into it.⁣ ⁣ You don't need speed. You need momentum.⁣ ⁣ I hope everyone is having a very happy new year and I look forward to seeing you achieve everything you're after.⁣ ⁣ Tag a friend starting a new fitness journey and share the wealth!⁣ ⁣ #Prehab101
