Perspectives from a physical therapist.
Great stuff Cory. I love the progression from sitting to standing. Great ideas for Yoga and the elderly for foot awareness even if there is no pain.Bravo!
Thanks Byron. In the prevention talks I give at work sites I do a little demonstration where I have everyone curl their toes for 2 minutes or so. Then we stand up and feel the difference in balance between the foot we moved vs. the one we didn't.
i m a french physioi know the concept of edge of pain during neural mobilisationwhen dorsiflexion is performed you can have a pain s ege in compression front of the ankle or a edge in tension at the back of the ankle1 when you manage your treatment, what do you treat first the edgge in compression or the egge in tension ?what is your professionnal experience about this ?personnaly i treat first edge in compression until abolition of it and after i treat edge in tension secundly which is more traditionnal ?thanks a email@example.com
Hi Sebastian. I'm concerned with the first sign of the edge, whatever or wherever it may be. It could be a compression sensation on the front, it could be tension on the back, it could be as subtle as a change in breathing pattern. I'm less concerned with the location or quality of the sensation as much as I am with the patient's ability to identify it and engage it.Great question.
