Love this post!

Posted @withregram • @squat_university Joking aside, the moment you start focusing on foot stability when lifting is the day you’ll make a major breakthrough in your technique performance.🏋🏼‍♀️
.
Practical methods to do this:
1️⃣Warm Up With Shoes off
2️⃣Concentrate on creating & maintaining the tripod foot (base of the heal, 1st and 5th toes all in contact with the ground and bodyweight spread evenly across them).
3️⃣Go barefoot more often during your day outside of training to build a more resilient & strong foot.
.
Want to learn more about how the type of shoes you wear affect your foot stability & therefore your performance? Check out the Squat University podcast episode 88 with Dr. Ray McClanahan of @correcttoes (linked in my IG bio today).📲

How do you choose what running shoes to buy? 🤔
⠀
🔶🔷🔶🔷🔶
⠀
In today’s world, there is an abundance of footwear on the market. This is good and bad, as it gives us multiple options to choose from, however sometimes the quality is not always the greatest.
⠀
There is no “formula” to the perfect shoe. In truth, the perfect footwear is the one that works for you the best, both structurally and by preference.
⠀
🔶
⠀
A few tips when looking for running shoes:
⠀
✅ Ensure that any footwear matches your foot SHAPE (I.e curved, semi-curved, straight)
⠀
✅ More Rigid feet usually benefit from a more cushioned, flexible feel. Flexible feet and ankles typically benefit from a more structured and supportive shoe.
⠀
✅ The price tag is not the most important part of a shoe. Quality, fit and feel are extremely important. This does not mean you must spend $200 on a new pair of shoes, but trying a few similar pairs will give you an idea of what will work best for you.
⠀
🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷
⠀
At Kinemedics, our Canadian Certified Pedorthists are footwear specialists with extensive training on all types of footwear. If you are looking for new footwear and are not sure what you should be looking at, give us a call. We can either schedule an in person, or phone consultation with you to provide all of the details you need.

Foot FAQ/Fact Friday
Q: How do I find a comfortable sandal that fits my foot properly?
A: Here is a quick reference list to outline sandal features that will improve your sandal fit.

Adjustable Straps: Adjustability in a sandal allows for tightening and releasing pressure on the foot. The ability to move a strap for swelling changes, wider feet, and high arches encourages the foot to sit comfortably in the sandal. Another way adjustable straps prove valuable is how they help to maintain alignment of the arch of the foot with the arch (shank) of the shoe.

Multiple Widths: Wider widths in a sandal could pose to be challenge, but they are quite common within most Pedorthic clinics. Wider widths help to accommodate unique foot shapes such as Charcot foot, club foot, dropped arches and swelling. If the sandal is too narrow, it may cause you to turn/sprain an ankle.

The Posterior Strap: The unpopular back strap is a great feature. Having a back strap aids the achilles tendon to lift the heel and propel the foot forward so that your steps are completed naturally and effortlessly. The back strap also holds the heel in position for proper heel stability and shock absorption. It is best to avoid flip flop/thong version and slide-on styles, as the absence of a back strap may lead to toe gripping and other changes to prevent the sandal from sliding off.

Removable Insole: A sandal that has a removable insole allows you to replace the generic foot bed with a customized orthotic for additional support. Some sandals have an arch built directly within the sandal. It is important to keep in mind that we all have different arch heights and foot types and what feels good on one individual does not necessarily work well with another.

Visiting your local Pedorthic clinic will provide you with sandals that work best with your foot type and current activity level. We hope these features help your find the sandal that becomes your next season’s favourite! Happy summer! To find a pedorthist near you visit www.pedorthic.ca/

Monday Product Spotlight! Recovery Pump
⠀
🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷
⠀
Are you an avid fitness enthusiast, or even someone that has gotten back in to fitness recently? 💪
⠀
The recovery phase after a strenuous exercise session is something not to be taken lightly. Allowing muscles to rest and rehabilitate properly reduces the risk of injury.
⠀
🔷
⠀
The recovery pump is a rehabilitative device that utilizes sequential pneumatic compression to actively rid tissue of metabolic waste, and increase venous return.
⠀
Recovery Pump is used all over the world, and in many professional sport associations including the NHL and NBA.
⠀
🔷
At Kinemedics, we are a proud Canadian Distributor of Recovery Pump, supplying professional athletes and associations across the country.
⠀
If you are an athlete, coach, or know of anyone who could potentially benefit from using Recovery Punp to improve their performance, give us a call and we can discuss options with you!

With the record hot temperatures in Ottawa yesterday (and today), we have reached a new milestone in the office. 🔥 🔥 🔥

07/08/2020

This week is gearing up to be the hottest one yet. If you plan on being outside for a prolonged period of time, be prepared.

🔥 🔥

DO:
- Wear sunscreen
- take breaks from the heat (whenever possible)
- ensure you are staying hydrated throughout the day

DO NOT:
- Pass off symptoms of heat stroke/exhaustion as being “tired” or ignore those symptoms
- Perform excessive exercise without adequate hydration and nutrition. 💧 🍎🌭🍦

Be safe out there, maintain social distancing when possible. With all of this in mind, you can still enjoy the beautiful weather safely! ☀️

ELBOW PAIN? 🚫🚫🚫
⠀
🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷
⠀
There are many reasons and causes of elbow pain, from sport injuries, overuse, repetitive movement and more. One of the most common injuries seen is lateral epicondylitis, or “tennis elbow”.
⠀
🔶
⠀
Common symptoms of tennis elbow include:
⠀
✅ Pain on the outside of the elbow, sometimes radiating down the arm towards the wrist
✅ Pain when turning doorknobs or holding heavy objects
✅ Tenderness at the site of inflammation
⠀
If symptoms continue for a long duration, it can lead to further injury (I.e carpal tunnel, nerve related issues)
⠀
🔶
⠀
There are multiple treatment modalities that can help with both symptom improvement and muscle strengthening around the elbow. 💪
⠀
🔷
⠀
Tennis elbow braces, such as the BandIT Tennis elbow splint, can decrease strain on the extensor muscles of the forearm and decrease inflammation on the tendons attaching those muscles to the elbow.
⠀
This is a non-invasive and cost effective method you or a patient can use to improve symptoms.
⠀
🔶
⠀
At Kinemedics, we also carry a variety of rehabilitation and strengthening tools to aid in muscle strengthening, including the Thera Band Flex Bar (among others).
⠀
If you, or someone you know suffers from elbow pain, let us help guide you in the right direction to get you back to doing the things you love.
