Did you know that there are sex hormone receptors (Oestrogen, Relaxin and Testosterone) in the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) of the knee? Therefore women are of a greater risk of ACL injury ESPECIALLY during the PRE-ovulatory phase compared to post-ovulatory phase. Interestingly, a quick #aclinjury search on Instagram did have more female posts. Are you more conscious of your training leading up to your monthly cycle? Maybe consider lowering your volume and intensity during this time.
I was given the opportunity to share how Osteopathy could help mental health issues. I give a brief overview of how the physical, emotional and chemical are all interlinked and what can be done to help your overall health. Thanks to @mentalmovementmagazine for the interview and the great write up by @gemmp You can read the interview here: https://www.mentalmovement.co.uk/osteopathy-heal-mind/ Link in the bio #mentalmovement #mentalmovementmagazine #mentalhealth #health #osteopathy #physical #emotional #chemical #nature #environment
"Emotional benefits of an embrace. Studies have shown that hugs cause the brain to release endorphins, and this leads to better healing throughout the entire body. In addition to that, an embrace is a form of therapy that generates feelings of well-being, and can reduce blood pressure"
Your eyes and ears are also considered as an organ. Just like any other organ, they can have associations to particular muscles. Your eyes and ears are associated to the upper trapezius. Primarily we sense the world we live in through the eyes and ears first. If you're suffering neck, shoulder or upper back pain, has the full function of your eyes and ears been check too?
Can your menstrual cycle cause shoulder pain? Apparently there has been a discovery of a link between the menstrual cycle and shoulder pain. In my clinical practice I have had a female client present with right shoulder pain ONLY when on their monthly cycle. The shoulder pain also caused difficultly to lay down and sleep. Maybe this is more common that thought as research has mentioned a link between menstruation and shoulder pain but are yet to discover the reason as to why this link exists. Although this is only one case that presented to me at clinic, and an interesting case, I found that there was an organ receptor dysfunction within the uterus. Every time the menstrual cycle initiated, this process would be stimulating the dysfunctional receptor. This dysfunctional receptor would be causing compensatory weakness within the right shoulder muscles. This was tested and challenged by testing the individual muscles of the shoulder and then applying deep pressure to the lower abdomen and re-testing the shoulder muscles. On applying pressure to the lower abdomen, the right shoulder muscles would weaken, comparative to the left shoulder muscle which would remain strong. Using the pdtr advanced protocol, we were able to reset the dysfunctional receptor, allowing the brain to have a better sensory input from the organ and therefore take away the need for compensatory weakness within the right shoulder. Previously to visiting my clinic, the client was simply told that the muscle were tight and treatment following that diagnosis did not help. It is important to discover the real WHY and CAUSE of people's pain and problems and look more in-depth when it comes to people's health. Its all in the assessment. 80% assessment 20% treatment The more you understand the better you can help.
Got the pleasure of being shortlisted for the very first Greenwich Business Awards 2018. Had a great day meeting other great local businesses with special guest Nick Hewer, right hand man to Lord Alan Sugar. With 125 entries to the different award categories, unfortinately being a sole trader wasn't enough to compete against the bigger local business but making the final 6 is still a great achievement. Thank you #royalgreenwich for putting on this event. Bring on 2019 #greenwichbizawards #greenwichbizawards2018 #greenwich #olympicosteopathy
