What’s up everybody justin hays here from superhumanpursuits.Today, wanted to talk a bit about ankle braces and why you probably should think twice before using them.This weekend, last weekend, i blew out my ankle in a softball tournament.Running around in the outfield, stepped in a hole.Happens to the best of us.Getting better day by day.But, as it happened, right after it happened, a friend came up to me and said, hey, i have some ankle braces.Do you want them maybe use during rehab, post rehab.I politely.
Declined, and i didn’t explain myself at the time.But i’d like to take an opportunity to now, because it is important, and i think a lot of people might have this question.It breaks down to this in the simplest form.The ankle is built for mobility.Right there’s a stability component to it.It needs to be stable to a point.But its real function, its primary function is to mobilize in all the different directions that it goes in.You can see, forward, back, side to side.Okay.
The joint above it, the knee, think about it.It’s really just flexed, in and out.Caving in or caving out of the knee, you don’t want the knee to mobilize in that range.Now, i take an ankle brace and i slap it on my ankle.That immediately creates extra stability, but at the sake of mobility.Meaning it’ll stabilize my ankle by not letting it go in a certain direction.Okay but what happens when i’m doing an activity now if i’m doing sprinting, jumping, and i need that mobility from my ankle, where does the body default.
To it defaults to the joint above it.So if it can’t get mobility from the ankle, because you’ve braced it up so tight, it’s going to try to get it from the knee.Well, the knee doesn’t mobilize.When the knee goes in and out or tries to mobilize in different directions, that’s when you get tears and things that are brutal, because the knee is something you don’t want to mess with.Ankle sprain, couple of weeks.You mess the knee up, you know, six months.Am i saying that ankle braces are terrible all the time no.There are certain instances,.
And it’s unique to every individual.If you’re a football player and you’re getting taped before the games, that makes sense.It could make sense.It depends on what’s going on with you.The idea is this, on your daytoday basis, when you’re training, when you’re just practicing whatever athletic event you’re involved in, you shouldn’t be training with an ankle brace.You want to create mobility.You want your ankle to be strong through a broad range of motions, because it’s very instrumental to keeping this knee healthy.So training, doing stuff like this, ankle brace, not a good idea.Competition, in oneoff.
Water Exercise Basic Walking Aquatic Therapy Ask Jo
Cannon ball! hey everybody, it’s jo! it’s a beautiful day to do some aquatic therapy.A big thank you to my uncle for letting us borrow his pool for the day.Today, i am going to show you some aquatic therapy gait exercises.This is just to get you warmed up, get everything stretched, get everything moving, and then i’ll show you some other tutorials for the exercises, and everything.In the pool, it’s very easy to not have proper technique.It ‘s very easy to just swing your body, be all over the place, but it’s really important to work on your.
Technique because you don’t have to worry about falling.So it’s all about exaggerating your techniques and getting the stretches you need.So starting off it’s going to be simple walking forwards and backwards, and sideways, and some marching.But it’s really important to do the proper technique.When we are walking, naturally we hit our heel first, and then roll off onto our toes.If we have an injury, then we don’t necessarily do that all the time.So just exaggerated the movement.Try and keep your body upright while you are walking.Hitting your heel first, and rolling off onto your toes.Heel first.
Rolling onto your toe, keeping your body upright.Again, heel first, push off on your toes.See, i’m still keeping my upper body nice and straight.I’m not leaning forward, i’m not leaning back.I’m keeping my body upright.Do that about 3 or 4 laps.Then you are going to go backwards.Now your toes are going to hit first.So toe, roll back on your heel.Toe, roll back on your heel.It’s really easy to start leaning back.Try not to lean back.If you leaning back, you’re going too fast.Toe, heel.Toe, heel.After you do that about.
3 or 4 times, the next one is going sideways.Sidestepping.With sidestepping, it really for people to end up turning their foot out.You want to keep your toes pointed straight the whole time.Because if you turn your foot out, you are using different muscles.We want to work the outside of our muscles right now.So keep those toes pointing forward, not out, but stepping with those toes forward the whole time.Sidestepping, keeping that upright posture.Tuck those tummy muscles in, and then come back.Then the next one is going to be marching.
Bringing the knee up, alternating sides.So pulling that knee up as close to the surface as you can get.Again, not leaning back, not leaning forward, keeping that body upright.Really driving that knee up.So those were the basic gait exercises in the pool.Those were your aquatic therapy exercises.If you have any questions, leave them in the comments section, and if you would like to check out some other tutorials, go to askjo.Don’t forget to follow me on facebook and twitter.Remember, be safe, have fun, and.
