Using Self Myofascial Release for Muscle Reprogramming

2

Filed Under (Health, Trigger Point Courses) by Rick Kaselj on 25-11-2012

I’ve got another video from you from Conor Collins. In this video, Conor talks about using Self Myofascial Release for Muscle Reprogramming.

One of the things that we talk about in Trigger Point Solution is the concept of the new normal.

A lot of times we use soft tissue work as a manual therapist or our Self Myofascial Release as an individual doing strength training or strength coaching with our clients.

We are attempting to open up a new normal. So for individuals going through the rehabilitative stage we need to do adequate soft tissue work to get the nervous system to that new normal to allow it to reprogram, either strength mobility, flexibility or movement patterns.

What is Dysfunction?

If we looked at typically where we sit in dysfunction — let’s call it dysfunction — and this is what we do in our daily routines. This may also be during sitting or maybe inadequate movement patterns, strength, flexibility, or mobility.

When we get to doing our trigger point therapy or Self Myofascial Release, we get the body into a new normal or new state where we are able to reprogram it more effectively because we don’t have dysfunction holding us back.

How to correct it?

We use trigger point therapy, Self Myofascial release, in a correct manner progressively with steps and strategies to get ourselves to this new normal where we can now program our rehab properly and effectively. It will take significantly less time if we are trying to rehab down into this dysfunctional state.

If you have any questions, certainly email me conor(at)conorpcollins.com.

Traveling Tool for Trigger Points

Lets talk about trigger points today.

I want to share with you a tool that I use for my trigger points and for self myofascial release (SMR) while I am traveling.

Quick Traveling Tool for Trigger Points

 

 

In the video, I am coming to you from Orlando, Florida.

I share with you in the video:

  1. A tool that I travel with.
  2. Why I am a huge fan of foam rollers.
  3. Why a 1 foot foam roller is useless to travel with.
  4. Something a foam roller can’t do, but helps.

Sitting on the plane for hours does not help the body out.  So it is nice to land and take a few minutes in the hotel room to relax. I find if I roll out for a minute are two, it makes the stretching more effective.

Muscle Imbalances Revealed Review

Muscle Imbalances Revealed 2.0 has been out for 4 months and the kind words about the program keep coming in.

I just got another great review for MIR2.

“Product Muscle Imbalances Revealed by Rick Kaselj is complete and is an important tool in my repertoire of works in practice. It is easy to use and understand. The various presentations allow us to touch a wide variety of muscle imbalances that may apply to both a general sports population. Its content will be definitely very helpful to me to optimize the training of my clients.”

Xavier did a detailed review of the MIR2 resource.  To read the full review from Xavier, click here.

The cool thing was Xavier’s review was all in French.  I am from Western Canada and did learn French in grade school but it has been some time since I have had to use it.  I used an online translator to help me translate things.

Thank you for the kind words, Xavier!

Helping People with Shoulder Pain

As you know, I am very passionate about helping people with their shoulder injuries and pain.  It is great to hear when those with shoulder pain follow my Scapular Stabilization Exercise Program and get the results they are looking for.

“I used Scapular Stabilization Exercise Program on myself and it was very helpful. My right serratus anterior is a lot bigger than my left, probably because I kept training while I had problems with my supraspinatus.  My right scapula used to move really bad, I would feel a tingle around the medial border when I would abduct my arm. I used the program and no more tingling anymore. My right shoulder complex still isnt 100%, but it’s a lot better.”

Thanks again,
Nick Mudaliar
