AAOMPT opposes use of 'degenerative disc disease' as diagnostic term for neck, back pain

"patients often react to the label 'degenerative disc disease' by losing hope and seeking more invasive and higher-risk treatments. They avoid beneficial physical activity for fear that exercise and movement will worsen their condition, possibly leading to chronic pain. The majority of spinal pain is self-limiting and can be managed appropriately without the need for medications or risky procedures such as injections or surgery"

Cortisone injections for hip and knee pain are more dangerous than was thought

"Physicians do not commonly tell patients about the possibility of joint collapse or subchondral insufficiency fractures that may lead to earlier total hip or knee replacement. This information should be part of the consent when you inject patients with intra-articular corticosteroids."

Researchers said patients with little sign of osteoarthritis on their X-rays should be particularly closely monitored, if the pain they were experiencing was disproportionate to evidence on the scan. Such patients are at greater risk of destructive arthritis after injections, they said.

Study Links Statins to 300+ Adverse Health Effects

“Overall, our goal in this review is to explain how the war on cholesterol has been fought by advocates that have used statistical deception to create the appearance that statins are wonder drugs, when the reality is that their trivial benefit is more than offset by their adverse effects.”

Why the 'Psychological Injury Model' Will Ultimately Triumph - Mad In America

Relevant to my post yesterday, this article is wonderfully written.

The research stats on the correlation between adverse childhood experience's and depression, su***de, cancer, and heart disease are staggering...

"If a woman was fortunate enough to grow up in an emotionally healthy home, she had an 18% chance of developing depression by middle age. But having just one adverse childhood experience (ACE) boosted her risk by 50%.5 Two ACEs boosted her risk by 84%. And the poor souls who had five or more ACEs had a 340% greater risk of developing depression than someone who grew up in an emotionally healthy environment."

Implications of reduced stride length in running | Lower Extremity Review Magazine

"Decreasing stride length during running has been shown to result in biomechanical changes that are associated with reduced loading of biological tissues and, by extension, also may reduce the risk of injuries such as stress fractures, iliotibial band syndrome, and patellofemoral pain."

Root Cause | Netflix

Anyone suffering from a chronic illness that hasn’t found the root cause should check out the “root cause” documentary on Netflix.
I will preface that the first ten minutes of this documentary is really cringe-worthy, and the last ten minutes are even worse. But the information in between is excellent and is presented by some of the top forward-thinking healthcare practitioners in their fields.

A man’s 10-year search for the underlying cause of his chronic illnesses becomes an exposé of the dental root canal procedure's harmful health risks.

Muscle memory discovery ends 'use it or lose it' dogma

"Use it or lose it - until you use it again"

Exercise physiologists agree: muscle memory is real. But how are these 'memories' stored? A review published in Frontiers in Physiology has a simple answer: nuclei gained during training persist even when muscle cells shrink due to disuse or start to break down. This means we can 'bank' nuclei in ou...

Faulty Movement Patterns Fixed in Minutes

SMR can quickly find and fix inhibited muscles caused by faulty compensation patterns, that are in turn caused by incorrect sensor signals from previous injuries.

I advertised on Kijiji for someone who was willing to be treated with SensoriMotor Repatterning (SMR) for demo purposes.

Tyler seemed like a great fit, he has a Masters in Sport & Exercise Psychology. I knew he would find the process fascinating. We had never met before this recording.

Everyone has faulty patterns, but our nervous system wants to be optimally functional. If we show the nervous system dysfunction, the reason for the dysfunction, and a better way to operate, it will immediately adapt.

Low Back Pain: The Potential Contribution of Supraspinal Motor Control and Proprioception. - PubMed - NCBI

This research review looks at how lower back pain can cause motor control dysfunction as a result of faulty sensory input, specifically proprioception, that in turn can cause “degeneration of intervertebral discs and other tissues, potentially maintaining recurrent or chronic LBP.”

Clinically I tend to find it more frequent that faulty sensory input is the initial cause of lower back pain, and the pain then causes further motor control dysfunction. It’s a case of which came first, the chicken or the egg. Ultimately, who cares, let's fix it, SMR does so in just a few sessions.

Holy Cramp! The Science Of Exercise-Associated Cramping – iRunFar.com

“What has developed in the scientific community over the past five to 10 years is a clear movement away from the original dehydration/electrolyte-imbalance theory and an increased focus on the altered neuromuscular control theory”

Great article, in short, you can remove cramps while exercising with Sensorimotor Repatterning Therapy, or you can eat pickles (while exercising).

The Problematic Cross-over Gait Motor Pattern: Part 1

The cross-over gait: The link attached is a good video from the Gait Guys explaining crossover gait. Dr Allen talks about the glute medius not functioning correctly causing movement in the frontal plane. Cross-over gait can also be caused by the opposing quadrates lumborum (QL) muscle not functioning correctly, causing the pelvis to drop at terminal swing (just before the foot contacts the ground).

The quadrates lumborum is one of the core muscles and is particularly prone to inhibition. It is one of the first muscles I test for correct function and one of the main goals of a first session is to have the QL functioning correctly at all times. The glut medius and QL are often both inhibited at the same time by a dysfunction at the Sacroiliac joint. With SMR this dysfunction can be fixed in minutes.

Our Story

Sensory Motor Repatterning Therapy is the result of years of dedicated experimentation within the fields of movement rehabilitation, manual therapy and neurology. I’ve applied SMR to professional athletes, chronic pain sufferers, and weekend warriors. It has proven time and time again to be incredibly powerful in its ability to fix chronic issues and optimize performance.

People who have been treated by Physiotherapists, Athletic Therapist and Chiropractors for years have finally found a solution to their chronic issues with SMR, most within three sessions. It is actually uncommon that I have to treat people beyond three sessions. I strive to get you fixed and out doing what you love as soon as possible.

Correcting faulty movement patterns does not have to take hundreds of repetitions of specific exercises with a resistance band, it can take seconds. How long does the correction last.. forever.. why? Because your nervous system wants to be efficient, show it a dysfunctional movement pattern and the root cause of the issue and the nervous system will correct the problem immediately and never revert back. It really can be that simple!
