Why You Should Sit on the Floor — Stay Strong

All humans, all cultures, throughout the ages have spent all our resting and much of our working lives on the ground in variations of a squat, kneeling or cross-legged position.

Levine discovered 35 years ago that wild animals recover from trauma by tremoring spasms of their body core and flailing of limbs, to complete the fight-flight they were in before they froze. Levine shows a National Geographic video of a polar bear chased by biologists (just to tag him) and then shot with a tranquilizer dart. As the bear wakes from freeze, its body trembles intensely, its legs thrash, and it makes biting motions over its shoulder—replicating and completing all the fight-flight actions it was making during the chase. Finally it undergoes deep gasping. This discharges tons of stress chemicals which otherwise get frozen in the body. Taping the Diaphragm. The human body possesses the power of reacting to gravity, inertia and momentum, the primary forces of the physical world, by means of proprioception: "perceiving self.

Taping the Diaphragm

" This proprioceptive system helps guide total-body reaction to the outside world and gives us awareness of space and time. It is a critical player in organization, function, timing and sequencing when moving! Muscle sequencing and timing are fundamental in the movement game.

It is this type of study that can often lead to sweeping changes in how further research is conducted, often create paradigm shifts in their own right. After all, there was only one Patient H.M. One thing that I wish I saw more in case studies was the clinician’s thought process. Why did they elect to do this treatment over that, what were they thinking when they saw this? How do they tick? I was fortunate enough to have an online client of mine suggest to that I make her a case study, and it was a very rewarding experience on both fronts. My hope is that you can see how a clinician thinks first-hand, and see the challenges a clinician faces… When you can’t work with your hands.

Stuart Bliss, DVM, PhD, DACVS, CCRPCharles Evans, MPT, CCRPPort City Veterinary Referral Hospital, Portsmouth, NH Repetitive overuse of the psoas is a common yet under appreciated cause of mobility impairment in the dog.

Sustained contraction, fatigue and spasm of the psoas musculature frequently develop in dogs with a wide range of orthopedic or neurologic disorders as they alter their posture to compensate for painful or dysfunctional limbs. This form of repetitive strain injury (RSI) can be difficult to recognize, yet it is a significant cause of pain and decreased mobility, especially in geriatric dogs. Strain-counterstrain is a manual therapeutic technique adapted from the field of physical therapy that can be used to treat psoas muscle strain that develops secondary to injury or surgery.
