‘Current research indicates that resistance training can be a safe, effective and worthwhile activity for children and adolescents provided that qualified professionals supervise all training sessions and provide age-appropriate instruction on proper lifting procedures and safe training guidelines. Regular participation in a multifaceted resistance training program that begins during the preseason and includes instruction on movement biomechanics may reduce the risk of sports-related injuries in young athletes.” Faigenbaum and Myer
I have been to Guy for two different issues. I had frozen shoulder which was very debilitating, I was told by an orthopaedic surgeon that there was nothing that could be done and that it would last for 2 years. Guy was able to increase my mobility by 30% after the first visit and each visit thereafter improved my mobility until I regained normal use of my arm. I have also had cranial osteopathy and although I don’t have a comprehensive understanding of this technique, it has given me incredible relief from an emotional trauma.
‘As the twig is bent, so grows the tree’ ~ William Garner Sutherland (1873 – 1954), A muscle strain is typically a muscle tear or “pull”, and is a common injury among young athletes. A muscle strain/tear is graded according to its severity. A grade I strain is a small tear and heals quickly; a grade II strain is a partial tear (part of the muscle stays normal, part of it tears); a grade III strain is a complete tear of the muscle.
“Science is about defining truths about nature through experiment or experience.” – Richard Feynman, nuclear physicist Many people suffer from shoulder pain at some point in their lives. There are many contributing factors that can lead to the cause of shoulder pain such as arthritis, bursitis, rotator cuff injuries, and even torn tendons or ligaments. Understanding the anatomy of the shoulder is critical if you want to restore and maintain shoulder health.
“Research suggests that static stretching can negatively influence muscle strength and power and may result in decreased functional performance.” Journal of Strength and Conditioning, 2012 A dynamic warm-up is a sequence of movements done dynamically to restore suppleness and prepare your muscles, connective tissues, joints and the nervous system for physical activity with the purpose to promote muscular force. The idea is to start with some light jogging and low –impact compound multiple joint movements (push, pull, squat) to allow the body to adjust to movement and then progressing to more explosive movements.
“Osteopathy is based on the perfection of nature’s work. When all parts of the human body are in line we have health. When they are not the effect is disease. When the parts are readjusted disease gives place to health. The work of the Osteopath is to adjust the body from the abnormal to the normal; then the abnormal condition gives place to the normal and health is the result of the normal condition.
“The mechanical principles on which Osteopathy is based are as old as the universe” - Philosophy of Osteopathy Teeth grinding (Bruxism) is in an involuntary habit of clenching or grinding in a back-and-forth or sideways movement of the top and bottom teeth against each other. The biting force of an adult human can equal up to 200 pounds per square inch. Clench your teeth on a regular basis, and that prolonged pressure takes its toll not only on teeth and their supporting structures, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints of the jaw, skull, neck and shoulders.
“Osteopathy is based on the perfection of Nature’s work. When all parts of the human body are in line we have health. When they are not the effect is disease.” Dr.A.T. Still - Osteopathy Research and Practice Whether due to allergies or chronic issues, such as asthma, bronchitis, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), breathing issues can reduce patients’ quality of life. There are different causes and reasons for breathing problems.
After 10 years of chronic pain and having exhausted all types of medical practitioners and chronic pain meds, it has taken just 2 months of visits to Guy to get me to a very place. A few more and I’ll be ready to take on the world again! Thank you Guy for giving me chance to see the light at the end of a dark tunnel. Fyrne Goveia
“The problem of antimicrobial resistance is here to stay because the natural adaptive response of microorganisms is to develop resistance. New approaches must be developed to enhance antimicrobial stewardship. The evidence indicates that adjunctive OMT can enhance the human immune system, shorten the duration of antibiotic therapy, and improve outcomes” Noll (2016) The Potential of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment in Antimicrobial Stewardship: A Narrative Review Donald R.
