Client Name: You

Diagnosis: Chronic foot and http://ow.ly/p7A430jD7sd arch pain, calf/hamstring tightness



Precautions: Big toe pain can mean big problems. In fact any foot stiffness and pain, acute or chronic, can change the way you jump, land squat, kick, etc. And you may not just feel pain at the foot. Compensatory motions may lead to joint pain above at the knee, hip or lower back.



Rx: FIX YOUR FEET before engaging in any jumping, bounding, spinning or dynamic loading of the foot.
☐ Self-Mobilization: Toe Differentiation


Comments/ Parameters/ Protocols:
Toe Differentiation is not just a great exercise to mobilize and "spread" tight tissue, but also a great screening tool to see where you might be stuck or limited in toe movement.


Frequency: Daily, before and after training.

What’s really going on with your knee? What’s causing your knee pain? If you can't get specific diagnosis, see a PT that loves knees and get to the root of your issue.

The Stork Test --- a wonderful test to screen for hip weakness, knee dysfunction and ankle stability. Knee pain? Always get an “above and below” assessment.

“Knee strain” is not a diagnosis. When getting your knee evaluated, ask for a specific diagnosis and a cause to your knee pain or dysfunction.

The Footwear Physical: Break Down Your Shoes Before They Break You Down

Climbers inspect their harnesses. Cyclist inspect their detailers. If you run, jump and are putting any mileage thru them, you need to inspect your shoes and sneakers.

What happens at the feet effects the entire body and your performance. Make sure your footwear is working for you and not against you. They may look good, but your shoes may be deteriorating and losing their ability to provide the necessary support and injury protection.

Twist them. Bend them. Pull them. Take them apart and check for holes, tears or giving away. Know your basic footwear anatomy and compare right to left for asymmetries.

Check out this pic of the inside of my shoe. I was switching out the insole and found the longitudinal support had snapped. What was ---- or better put, "wasn't --- I walking on.

Depending upon mileage, training surface/terrain, climate, you should schedule periodic footwear physicals to limit pain and injury.
