Helping Keith getting up that grading ladder and another step, closer to the Olympics

Helping Keith getting up that grading ladder and another step, closer to the Olympics

Keith  with “Quicks” MD, Les MacPherson, at the “Crookhorn” shoot, hosted by Portsmouth’s “Forest of Bere Bowman”.

Seeing him win yet another important  competition is a great reward for all the work we have done with him 

Keith is a Dedicated  Competition  Archer,  we are proud of him and to be looking  after him  here at Getfitstayfit Norfolk

Keith is currently rated 17th in the UK in Archery

The whole of Keith’s  body requires weekly physical maintenance, he pushes it pretty hard.

Keith is currently rated 17th in the UK in Archery, he has to be on top form.

He needs to be able to run 10k clime hills and have perfect balance  so he can always hit that target.

We have to place a great deal of  emphasis on his Rhomboids ,Latissimus Dorsi, the whole of neck and shoulder region,  as this is the  area that has to  hold the  great degree of tension, that is needed to be finely  tuned in order to produce a positive physical ,physiological and psychological performance  in any competition on route to the next Olympics

This is further strong evidence that working with Bioneuro Sigma Q sending  electrical frequency deep into  Keith’s muscular skeletal system is enabling this man to execute his technique well .

What Did I Do This Summer ? The BioTensegrity Dissection Course 2017 of Course.!

The BioTensegrity Dissection Course 2017 of Course

Summer is officially over, but for me Late June and  July were  interesting month’s.

    ” I managed to do something I  really wanted to do.”

Anyone who has been treated by me, will know for me it is all about the injury, that does not mean I do not respect and understand my patients,  but what I see is the damage done and how soon it can be restored and the best way to proceed.

One of the best ways for that, is getting in there and seeing what is going on and how it is all put together , how it is all connected, but that is not likely to happen and I don’t have X Ray eyes to see what is happening.

Since Jacqui had damage to her knee and had to have a knee replacement, back in 2010, I have had a great deal of interest in knee pathologies and how to help with knee pain

Then an opportunity to go to the University of Dundee at their Department of Anatomy to find out a whole lot more, on a Body Dissection Course, the main focus of the course being on being BioTensegrity,  Genetics,Kinetics and Synergetics , with one of the best Human Anatomist, John Sharkey of the NTC in Dublin was to good an opportunity to miss.

Not only did we have John Sharkey, but with guest Lectures like Dr Jean-Claude Guimberteau, Jaap van der WalJoanne Avison and Graham Scarr.

I was in my element. needless to say it has opened up a lot more understanding for me ,

Opening up a knee and seeing for myself, all the intricate connections, the layers in the human body, the depth  is truly is amazing, seeing how poor posture damages the body,  As I always say you never stop learning and there is so much more to learn, though what I have learnt from the course will come in extremely useful when treating my clients.

I can now cough and sneeze without having to hold my side because of the pain, I can laugh and it doesn’t hurt.

I can laugh and it doesn’t hurt

“Sara came to us, initially as a mum with her son , having seen how we helped him, she asked if we could help her , the answer was “we will do our best”. And we did the results were great  as Sara explains below .”

Having had Steve work on my son Will’s knee after a rugby injury and fixing it so well that he did not need surgery,

I asked Steve if he could sort out my problems that I had suffered for over 14 years!

Having had Steve work on my son Will’s knee after a rugby injury and fixing it so well that he did not need surgery, I asked Steve if he could sort out my problems that I had suffered for over 14 years!

The main problem for Sara was deep rooted problems with her  Fascia, This is The band of connective tissue primarily made up of collagen that is  beneath the skin that attaches, stabilises, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs , but after injury it will tighten in Sara’s case causing constant pain in upper and lower back ,” when this is happens the fascia needs to be stretched it needs to be pliable again exercise will not achieve this, massage helps , but we have found that massage along with the Bioneuro has been of great beneficial help in a shorter length of time.

“I NEVER KNEW WHAT NORMAL WAS”

My first problem was with my lung, which gave me constant pain when I sneezed, coughed and even laughed! It had been left damaged from having pneumonia and Pleural empyema, I had had an operation that had left some nerve damage to my right arm, which meant lack of strength and pain and s I said my lung was damaged, the best description was it would feel like sandpaper rubbing against the skin. I presumed that nothing could be done for both these issues. Steve had other ideas.

Using the Bionuero Therapy System, Steve said that he would try to get things working again and he wasn’t wrongAfter just one session my pain had gone! I can now cough and sneeze without having to hold my side because of the pain, I can laugh and it doesn’t hurt.

To say I can now breathe may sound strange but for so long I had not been able to completely fill my lungs, I didn’t know what normal was;

I DO NOW. !!!! 4 weeks on and it is still the same, to think all I had to do was lay down get hooked up to the machine and have an hour or so of treatment. It wasn’t painful either, strange feelings of pressure on your body, or little kicks of electric shocks but never painful.

The following few sessions were a little bit more taxing. I had had lower back pain since I bore my first son which left me with damaged nerves and ligaments and a misaligned pelvis. Although this had gotten better after my second pregnancy I was left with a dull ache in my lower back and often tightness in my legs along with the annoying shooting pain in my left buttock and leg which would leave me unable to walk properly. Anyone who suffers this will know what I mean.

Just 4 sessions of the Bionuero system and I could not believe the results.

I could not do a simple leg raise without painan hour of this treatment and I could raise it with ease and with no pain.

I even loved the treatment, which I have to say I miss. 3 other sessions and all sorted.

It took a week I would say for it all to settle, I would still wake some mornings thinking uh oh pain is back but this slowly dissipated and for the past month I have had no pain at all. I have been able to have a whole day gardening and not feel stiff at all, even the next day. I can lift and carry things again without the pain. I can even sit or stand for long periods without feeling discomfort. No waking up in the morning and struggling to get out of bed!

I truly believe in this system, it is so simple yet so effective.

If you want to know what normal is, I highly recommend having this treatment, it is worth every penny.

Are You One Of The Walking Injured.

Are You One Of The Walking Injured

As a Sports and Neuromuscular Injury therapist , at my Injury Clinic  Getfitstayfit Norfolk, I deal with some quite traumatic muscular injuries,  sometimes injuries that people have lived with for years , ” The walking Injured” these people are the ones that feel that their only option was to just live with it, they are regularly  having to take pain killing medication, they  adjust their lives around the pain of the injury, until one day enough is enough or because of a further injury they have found themselves in a situation where they have to deal with the original injury also.

Finding themselves coming to see me , my job is to find the problem, by getting to the root cause of the injury , then Repairing it.

By Repairing the injured muscle, working into the superficial and deep Fascia , we can move on to Recovery,  by this I mean getting the muscles working for themselves again gently coxing them back in to functional ability,  getting the blood flowing back into them and releasing  the tension in the muscles .getting all the body systems to work in a cohesive order .

Then we move onto Rehabilitation,  do you know we have, Muscle memory we do and it has been used synonymously with motor learning, which is a form of procedural memory that involves consolidating a specific motor task into memory through repetition. When a movement is repeated over time, a long-term muscle memory is created for that task, eventually allowing it to be performed without conscious effort. This process decreases the need for attention and creates maximum efficiency within the motor and memory systems, this can be a great thing if you are fit and well as your muscles will work in a fluid motion within your body, but when you are injured, your muscles react differently, they want to tighten up to protect themselves so that they won’t get injured again, some muscles have to take over other muscles work , as the injured muscle wont stretch out , it becomes a habit and a default position.

My job is to break that cycle encourage the muscles to not go into default mode and  re-educate the muscles to once again work in a fluid movement .

This is when regular gentle exercise of the injured muscle starts to pay off, if we try to exercise injured muscle before it has been repaired or had time to recover,  then we will not move forward, in fact  it is  more than likely to impede recovery or in some cases,  further damage may occur.

There are three essential steps  to my clients being back to being as fit as they can be, to reach the final goal you have to have to take the first step , I will  be able to help you to reach the third step, Remember, you  can’t have Rehabilitation with out Recovery and you can’t have Recovery with out Repair .

Lets start with that Repair of your injury so you DO NOT REMAIN ONE OF THE WALKING INJURED.

Frozen Shoulder or Shoulder Injury, Help In Norwich Norfolk

Previous shoulder issues treated only with rest and medication will not properly rehabilitate and are prone to re-injury until properly conditioned by corrective exercise, therapy treatment, Sports Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy and manipulation . Exercises alone will not gain full pain free restoration and quality of life.

Any Muscular injury can be debilitating, but Frozen Shoulder or Rotator Cuff Injury,can last a long time and make life very difficult.

The human shoulder is made up of three bones the Clavicle,Scapular and the Humerus as well as associated muscles, ligaments and tendons which are all vital for its function.

Major Muscles in this area are the Rotator Cuff Group, The Deltoids. Other associated muscles are the Trapezius and Latissimus Dorsi.

The vital point also to remember with any shoulder  injury is that nerve damage always needs  consideration and assessment. Neck injuries can often be the source of shoulder pathologies as well .

Long Term Shoulder Injury

So why do major problems occur.

People lack coordination, in the joints of the shoulder, neck and upper back region as a result of poor posture and repetitive motions.

The enhancement  of the nerve supply to the area though aids good function of the shoulder for pain free movement.

The fascia in the region is often shortened when there is a injury ,This results in a continual friction and abrasion to the Rotator Cuff muscles and Tendons.

Previous shoulder issues treated only with rest and medication will not properly rehabilitate and are prone to re-injury until properly conditioned by corrective exercise, therapy treatment.

Sports Injury Therapy Massage and Neuromuscular Techniques and manipulation is necessary.

Exercises alone will not gain full pain free restoration and quality of life.
