EXERCISE OF THE WEEK
Ever been told you need to strengthen your hips or glute med?
This week's Exercise of the Week is called a sprinter.
It's a great exercise for anyone with hip instability, glute med weakness or athletes/weekend warriors who spend a lot of time running and therefore a lot of time in single leg stance.
How it perform it:
Place a small exercise ball on the inside of the knee closest to the wall and put your hand on the wall for stability
Ensure your hip, knee, and ankle are forming a straight line on the outside leg
Once in position, lift the inside foot off the ground
Hold this position and imagine pressing the ball into the wall and avoiding the outside knee creeping in.
There are also plenty of variations of this exercise that can specifically bias glute med or vastus medialis (the teardrop muscle above your knee).
The set-up of the exercise can be quite tricky to do so make sure you consult your Exercise Physiologist or Sport Scientist before trying a new exercise! ... See MoreSee Less

ARTICLE OF THE WEEK!
This week's article is titled
STICKS AND STONES: THE IMPACT OF LANGUAGE IN MUSCULOSKELETAL REHABILITATION.
This article is more of a wake-up call to us as clinicians about some of the words we may utilize in our day-to-day practice and how damaging they may be. I highly recommend all clinicians read this, as well as clientele so that you know the difference between a good and a GREAT clinician and their service.
Here at Vision Health, we strive to be GREAT clinicians and have become much more aware of the language we use to ensure we are helping our clients to the best of our ability.
Below is the link to the article.
