Fighting dad bod. Becoming a father has been the best thing to ever happen to me, but it has also been one of the biggest impacts to my fitness and diet. Having a new born means having a lot less time, energy, and most importantly SLEEP. I find it really challenging to be able to make time to train like I used to, and my body is telling me. I notice more aches and pains, a significant decrease in strength and work capacity, and a drop in body weight. This all happens in a short 3-4 week time span. A big change in a short period. That's why it is so important to remain consistent in your health and wellness. Organize and prioritize, being busy does NOT equate to being productive. Now I must get back on track, and strive to continue with my own fitness and be a good example for my family. #health#healthtips#priorities#healthfirst#elmwear#teamELM#chiro#chiropractor#yycchiro#healthcare#chiropractic

Improved sleep and reduced colic? That's probably the best gift you can give a new parent!
Soaking these muscles! When training hard don’t neglect some self care, getting massages even just from your significant other😜, chiropractor, foam rolling, trigger point balls, stretching and epsom salt soaks... .
Yup look at all the bath products🤣😂🤣🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️do you get shampoo even when you already have some? #ShampooHo
People have been asking me if the shin scrapings are working. After 4 sessions, I’ve managed to get up on one of these and run. Yes, I said it....Run! Other than not knowing how to balance myself yet, I was able to get in a few sprints without my shins getting tight. I felt some tenderness but my shins are still bruised from the scraping. I go through hell and sooo much pain when the scarred tissue is being broken down but I can say it is all worth it. I’ll do another updated post a few weeks from today once I’m done with my sessions. #builtinsideout#shin#shinsplints#chiropractor#athletictraining

A crucial piece to injury and pain prevention is stability. When I say stability, I mean the ability to resist motion and to have control in potentially vulnerable positions.
———————————————————————- Two examples are knee valgus or spinal flexion. I can push my knee to collapse inward (valgus) and flex my spine anytime I want without doing damage. The problem comes when you get into those positions WITHOUT the ability to control it. ———————————————————————-
Use this screen to test your own hip and knee stability!

Welcome Dr Marco! .
Dr. Marco obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic from Bloomington, MN, USA. Before becoming a chiropractor, he had earned a degree in chemical engineering. .
"It wasn’t until I started chiropractic school that I realized that chiropractic wasn’t just about headaches and back pains.” While in school, Dr. Marco felt fortunate that he had an excellent professor who was very chiropractic based as the institution was highly medically focused.
Dr. Marco has had extensive training in the realm of pediatrics and loves to see the life altering results that occur to all children under his care. .
He welcomes all conditions said to be “incurable” medically because he knows that everyone functions better when their spine and nervous system are functioning at 100%. .
Dr. Marco is extremely passionate about delivering chiropractic care to the world, helping families become healthier and happier!
Neurofunctional Assessments and acupuncture are also available at Inside Health, just another tool Dr. Marco uses to help the many physical complaints you may suffer from.
Stability is not immobility! Stability is all about your control over a joint through movement. Lack of stability will cause injuries. #trx clock press great exercise to work on stabilizing your shoulder #movementismedicine@trxblackranks
Fish, nuts and seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids which fight inflammation, boost the immune system and ease the symptoms of arthritis. The Dieticians of Canada recommend a minimum of 2 servings of fish per week along with other foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. .
Here is an easy and potent omega-3 recipe that is easy, quick and delicious.

Know where your supplements, protein powders and nutritional support comes from. Not only is it important to be health conscious about getting the right food and supplement support, but also understanding where it comes from and how it's made. Big corporations making supplements is purely for profit not health. Choose products that are sustainable, ethically made, and overall more beneficial for your health. Now that Nestle owns @pureencapsulations and @gardenoflife I will not be using these products and urge you all to stick to smaller supplement companies..ideally those who work with people in the health care field.

Meet @dr.danielyinh, the magician who makes sure my body follows my mind's pace.
I met him thanks to French #golf legend #ThomasLevet when I was looking for a decent #chiropractor in #PalmBeachGardens. Thomas told me Daniel was excellent and he was right.
As we say, your body is your temple. #entrepreneur's life is pretty intense so taking care of your health is the best way to run that race with no final line.
It was great meeting you today Daniel, and thank you again for fixing my neck 😉🤙🏻

SHOULDER INTERNAL ROTATION
Like Hansel from Zoolander, shoulder internal rotation is so hot right now. That’s why @basicmvmtpt and I put together NINE exercises that could potentially be used to improve passive and active shoulder internal rotation (SWIPE LEFT).
The exercise that best suits you is going to depend on several factors including your goals, your current mobility and strength, and pain. The very best one for you might differ from your best friend and you may even benefit from more than one.
Although we demonstrate 4 different passive stretches, keep in mind that no one ever got flexible from doing 3 sets of 30 second holds. There’s also 5 active variations that utilize body weight, bands, or weight. Each and every one of these exercises can and should be modified to match the needs of the individual.
Which ones have you done? Which ones do you like? Let us know below!

Today was Chiropractic day. I routinely like to have my horses adjusted every 4-6 months and sometimes sooner depending on the last visit. This is especially important with the new horses that come in. Kool Cat 😺 had his first visit and he loved it, he was the best patient of the day. With the stress and high demand we expect of our horses, it is important that we give them the best possible care, and that involves having our horses looked at by a professional chiropractor. Weather you are jumping, working Dressage, barrel racing, reining, or even just pleasure riding with us being on their backs we are demanding a lot of them physically. If you want your horses have the best possible advantage in the work they are doing, these needs must be met. This will help in aiding your horse to perform at his best, relive pain, ease tight muscles, help resistance, as well as provide an over all happier horse.
My horses' generally require mid back, SI, neck, and pole adjustments as well as various fetlocks, sometimes hocks.
Kool Cat 😸, pictured here, the Dr would see just by the way he stands, walks, as well as his muscle development where he needed his adjustments. For Kool Cat 😸 it was mostly right side hind, mid back, and pole. The chiro will also tell you if he feels something is not chiropractic related and needs to be visited by the vet. Kool Cat 😺 will be seen again in a month for a follow up visit and has upcoming scheduled visits from the Dentist for a float and cap removal as well as the farrier to fix up those feet.
I hope to get back on this boy asap, as yesterday was rain day and today was Chiro day. All around very classy horse who is taking everything in stride. #ottb#600ottbs#thoroughbred#chiropractor#equineracers#exracehorse#retrainingottbs

ACTIVE VS PASSIVE HIP EXTERNAL ROTATION
Here is a series of exercises (swipe left) that @basicmvmtpt and I put together that could possibly address the difference between his passive and active hip external rotation range of motion in supine. Isometric contractions performed at varying angles between the discrepancy can be effective for improving and strengthening his active range.
If you’re looking for more ideas or information on the topic, @dr.nicolept and @thestrengththerapist did a great job of discussing this in a recent post.
Also, shout out to @joegambinodpt for inspiring the second exercise!

💢HIP (extension) MOBILITY FOR LESS BACK PAIN AND BETTER SQUATS
low back pain care and advice with a “hip opener” thrown in .
Our 3️⃣ part hip warmup last week was pure 🔥 and I had a lot of feedback from people looking for explanation of the first drill so here it is by popular request
Why this drill is vital for the #desklife, building #glute strength / #squats and long term health:
❗️most people lose the ability to fully extend their hip with age and the repetitive flexion required with sitting .
❇️ a loss of hip flexion puts more demands on the lumbar spine to compensate and do the extension / bending
✳️ repetitive strain of the low back can lead to injury, pain and sometimes misery
❎ poor extension of the hip also limits the ability of the gluteus maximus to be engaged, get stronger and protect the spine
✅ notice how a straight line could be drawn between my tight and the core and the hip extends even past this line - yours should to
If you notice it is difficult to fill extend the hip, I strongly recommend that you continue to work on your hip mobility before it causes a Core Problem with the spine that requires correcting .
🚹A good manual therapist could also help with this if you don’t have the time to do it yourself with our great hip openers from last week
If you get stiff hips with work or working out I would love to hear what you think the triggers are and how you are managing it ℹ️
Have a WONDERFUL WEEK

💢When your shoulder pain is not a shoulder problem 🤔 .
SHOULDER INJURY PREVENTION
💪 If you have ever had shoulder pain from lifting and the gym you know how frustrating it is! Even with rest it seems to come back!
🔴But I bet you didn’t know that for the majority of shoulder issues, one of the major causes isn’t the shoulder joint (glenohumeral joint) where it hurts but the movement and position of the shoulder blade ⚠️
✅Movement off the arm requires movement of the shoulder blade on top of the back / rib cage. We call this the scapulothoracic joint even though it isn’t a true joint like your knee - the scapula floats on your back and is moved by the dozen plus muscles that attach to it .
If the shoulder blade’s movement is limited because of muscle tightness or the spine’s structure, this is going to cause over compensation in the glenohumeral joint and repetitive strain to the tissues
💣To get your arm over head it takes AT LEAST 60 degrees of shoulder blade rotation and I hate to say it, but myself and a lot of other people are missing this! This can force the arm bone to move too much in the shoulder joint and repetitively jam the tissues!
To fix most shoulder problems you have to address three things
1️⃣ the structure of the spine the shoulder blade sits on
2️⃣ the nervous system that powers on the shoulder muscles and senses for pain
3️⃣ the injured shoulder tissues
To learn more about this approach please check out our latest blog [link in bio]
