It is the Victims that Cry out, not the Criminals – a Look at Injuries.

Ida Rolf, one of the most well known manual therapists wrote the following about tracking the cause of pain, ‘Where you think it is, it ain’t’.

Physiotherapist Diane Lee puts it this way, “It is the victims that cry out, not the criminals”. Both these thoughts express perfectly how injuries work. Therapists need to go to the site of the pain because it hurts. However, you need to look up and down from there, and at times across, to find the real cause. If you can’t find the cause you can’t effectively treat an injury.

Recovery – the New Big Thing.

It’s a simple formula.

The quicker you can recover from a hard training session, the harder you can train the next day, and hence perform better.

recovery

The principle works in all aspects of life. The student who rests well at night and gets his/her nutrition right will be able to study hard again the next day. The office worker who can switch off at night, sleep well and work on their posture while behind a desk will be fresher than their colleagues who are unable to get those simple things right.  Continue reading

Four Steps to a New Habit.

So: You want to change an aspect of your life. I fully believe that the change that you want is only possible through changing your habits. Here are four steps to a new habit.

Rich Roll, one of my favorite athletes posted the following on Instagram the other day. This is what he wrote, “PATIENCE. PERSISTENCE. PERSEVERANCE. Our on demand culture is fueling entitlement. From drone delivery to overnight six-pack abs, we want what we want and we want it now. Lost is an appreciation for craft. For hard work. For the long haul. But that journey — and all the obstacles, struggle and setbacks that come with it — shouldn’t be avoided. And it shouldn’t just be tolerated. It should be welcomed with all the enthusiasm you can muster. Because love of process is everything. Without it, you simply will not reach your potential. Period.”

Give Rich a follow on Instagram or find him on Facebook.

Hyperbaric Therapy and Stroke Recovery.

A stroke is caused by an interruption of blood supply to a section of the brain.
