Mobilizing Your Ankle, 2 Variations: Video Update

Hey Readers! Here is a quick video that I made a week or so ago on how to do a Mulligan Mobilization With Movement technique to increase ankle dorsiflexion. Ankle dorsiflexion seems to be a common theme on my blog but it is a common restriction but a very important motion to have! In this video I show you a way to do it this alone or with a partner/patient. This won't be a new concept for some but I hope those who have never heard of it find it useful! Enjoy!

Putting The "soft" Back Into Soft Tissue: Video Post

Hey all! New video for you all today that follows the same theme as my last blog post regarding foam rolling. I hope you all learn something and sorry for my amateur videography. I forgot to comment on it in the video but it is important to note that these gains in mobility are only temporary.

However, this treatment can and should (in this case, she as she is still restricted in terms of mobility) be combined with other treatments like joint mobs, Mulligan MWM's and repeated end-range plantar flexion. This will produce a synergistic effect and reapplication can help lock in the temporary gains.

Two Quick New Videos

Hey Everybody,

Here are two new videos that I made this weekend. I am going to start making videos with stuff related to blog content, rehab exercises, running form, random reviews and et cetera. You may notice near the top that I now have a direct link to my YouTube page as well. The first video is an easy test to check your ankle mobility, specifically ankle dorsiflexion.

The second video is for a common exercise for runners. This is intended to be a hip extension and glute activation exercise but ends up being something else entirely! It makes me cringe to watch people do it improperly!

Hope you all have a great father's day and hope you had a great weekend! Here comes Monday...

Well, I've never formally written a review before let alone published one for people to read on a blog. The only reviewing I have done is given my opinion to others that would listen (or pretend to). However, I decided that this book was a great place to start. The quality of information and the way it was delivered has given me the motivation to make an attempt at writing this review. So...where do I begin?
