SMART Man

The design of a man's narrow hips, broad shoulders and hormones gives him a unique set of injuries based on the demands they place on their bodies. There is general disbelief of the injury, how could it happen and what's the prognosis. 

 

I find these questions very valuable and pertinent because it brings us to a conversation of invincibility and healing.

Understanding the musculoskeletal system and its aging process, the emphasis and myths of training, acceptance of work life demands all play an integral part to risk of injury and outcome.

 

So be SMART!

Sports

Strength training: which groups and outcomes

Stretching: the long haul

Stability: foundation in core strength is important.

Exploring these facets and education on current needs.

This is the key to success mastering the balancing act.

Movement

Assess movement using screening tools to identify inefficient links in kinetic chain.

Agility

Analysis of breathing patterns and identifying dysfunctions that hinder optimal aerobic performance. 

Alignment of posture

Running

Discuss injury history and provide maintenance program for corrective exercises

Training

Liaison with health coach and other fitness experts in providing holistic approach to nutrition and wellness
