Quadricep and hip flexor to shorting, which increases the stress on patellar tendon and over time may restrict kneecap mobility. Sitting cross-legged or kneeling or knees tucked in underneath for prolonged time places a lot of compressive stress on soft   tissues such as menisci, collateral ligaments.. etc.

Quads vs. Hamstrings

When it comes to changing movement, it’s vital that we address the soft tissue. We know that hotspots, trigger points and excessive muscular tension can limit range of motion and compromise movement patterns. Foam rolling and self-massage has been proven to improve both short-term flexibility and long-term flexibility when performed on a regular basis. The key is to find the areas that will have the greatest positive impact on whatever movement pattern you’re trying to improve upon. If your goal is to improve the active straight leg raise, we need to address the soft tissue in the posterior chain. To be more specific, we should be focusing on the calves, hamstrings, and glutes.

So what is the POINT of Dry Needling?

When I do a musculoskeletal examination and find soft tissue problems—a muscle that’s doing too much or not enough—in the past as a Chiropractor, I could use a laser, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, Active Release Technique, different tools, manipulation or mobilization.

There are many techniques to try to get muscles to reset so I could then take the patient into exercise, maybe tape a little bit and provide some re-training.

Are You a Jogger with Ankle Pain? Achille's Strain Symptoms and Treatment

Are You a Jogger with Ankle Pain? Achille's Strain Symptoms and Treatment

Running or jogging is a great way to stay in shape, improve functioning of all physiological systems and could help reduce your risk for Alzheimer's, dementia or other age-related cognitive problems. Unfortunately, runners may occasionally overdo it by running too much, running too hard or wearing improperly-fitted shoes.

An Achilles strain is a common condition treated by chiropractors at Geaux Chiro and can even affect people who do not regularly jog. You could strain your Achilles tendon by wearing high heels, having flat feet or taking medications like glucocorticoids or certain antibiotics that break down and weaken tendon tissue. A strained Achilles tendon can occur when running or walking uphill, exercising vigorously on a hard surface, rapidly climbing the stairs or trying to carry heavy objects from one area to another. Abruptly increasing your speed while running or not properly warming up muscles before engaging in physical activity may also strain your [...]

5 Causes of Shoulder Numbness and Tingling

5 Causes of Shoulder Numbness and Tingling

The shoulder is an intricately formed joint composed of a ball and socket, muscles, ligaments and tendons that is particularly prone to suffering diseases caused by aging and injury. If you overexert or overuse a shoulder joint by lifting improperly, carrying heavy objects or engaging in repetitive activities involving shoulder movement, you could experience the pain and stiffness produced by strained, sprained and/or torn soft tissues.

Numbness and tingling of the shoulder may indicate another type of injury involving irritated or compressed nerves. For example, misalignment of the spinal vertebrae (vertebral subluxation) can cause bony vertebrae to move out of their normal positions and compress nerves that extend out of the spine and into the shoulders. When shoulder numbness and tingling (which is often accompanied by radiating pain) does not respond to over-the-counter pain relievers, cold/hot compresses and rest, consider making an appointment at Geaux Chiropractic for a complete evaluation of your symptoms.
