A New Meaning to Muscle Memory
If I asked you to define exercise what would you say? Is it something we do in the gym? Are we only exercising when we are exerting ourselves? If we continue to break this word down to a simpler form we find that exercise is nothing more than moving our body against gravity. Sure, we manipulate our body positioning and add hundreds of different devices to increase complexity and exertion, but exercise is nothing more than moving our body against gravity.
Overtime, muscles form "sticking points" due to stress placed upon them from exercise and daily postural positions. This creates inefficiencies leading to the muscle having a limited range of motion or contracting/ stabilizing improperly. A muscle in this state can lead to an insidious onset of chronic pain and/or an acute injury. During the inhibition phase we will educate on self-myofascial release techniques to help relieve sticking points and allow a muscle to lengthen and contract properly and efficiently.
