May 2017 Newsletter
Happy May! Check out our spring season tidbits in this month's Newsletter:
- Foam Rolling for flexibility? Current research shows evidence that foam rolling can improve flexibility short-term for up to 10 minutes post AND long-term when it is performed on a regular basis of 3-5 times per week for 20-60 second intervals. Interestingly, foam rolling has also shown to enhance knee joint range of motion toward the performance of exercise--specifically, lunges.
- Mindfulness in medicine? When seeking medical care to treat a new or already existing condition, the associated anxiety can make communication and the participation in one's care challenging. To maximize on the experience and outcomes as a patient/client, start by being mindful. Likewise, as health care practitioners, we must also exercise mindfulness to continue providing the highest quality of care and empathy!
- Different muscle activation patterns in squats? Much scientific nerd love to Chris Beardsley of Strength & Conditioning Research on comparing muscular activation patterns with front vs. back bar squats via EMG study.
