Posturenomic Slant Board Instructional Video

Posturenomic Slant Board Instructional Video

With the Posturenomic board will give you a non-slip foundation in 3 progressive angles that will help to increase rotational mobility.

The body is a kinetic chain that works synergistically to maintain balance, functionality, and mobility. Even though your knee pain hasn’t caused you to stop walking, it doesn’t mean it should be left unattended it. Starting from the foundation and moving up to each joint we should be able to join movements in a fluid manner.

Ankle- The ankle after hours of inactivity causes the calf to relax and atrophy/weaken. The Achilles Teondon that attaches to the heel is rope like but gets tight and brittle due to inactivity. Spontaneous explosive movements like, sprinting to a bus that’s leaving or jumping to block a shot in basketball can cause a tear, or inflammation to this tendon if it is not maintained in a healthy manner. Stretching the Calfs will help increase the ankle’s ability to dorsiflex. The gastrocnemius also crosses the knee and stretching it will reduce compression.

Knee: Stretching the calfs and then stretching the hamstrings by straightening the leg will increase decompression of the knee. This reduces imbalanced force dispersion. In order to reduce Patellar tendonitis, healthy muscles above and below the joint must be stretched. Stretching the hamstring will also help reduce tight hips.

Hips: At this point the leg is straight in front of you, to reduce hip tightness make sure to use your hip flexors to increases the hip Extensors stretch. The Medial Glute as Piriformis will also be stretched if you internally rotate your femur and shimmy.

These are the basic movements that should be done each and every day. To be mobile and functional you must functionally activate the intrinsic muscles to help generate stability in all movements and incorporate the rotational spring we naturally have.

Usually the first warning sign of an inflamed Achilles tendon is pain found underneath the calf near to the back of the heel. This is a very common injury that is caused by a swelled or torn the tendon. This happens from overworking the calf muscles, climbing the stairs, speedy running or virtually any activity that causes stress on the calf. It’s important to realize that this pain is chronic due to constant use of the calf during normal daily activates.

There are many ways to reduce the pain and eventually stopping it. Like reaching any goal it’s a combination of consistency, dedication and doing the best possible actions. In alliance with anti-inflammatory foods (blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes, fatty fish, olive oil etc.) the tendon must be stretched.

The slant board does just that. Follow these stretch techniques while using the slant board and you can help treat

Remember Health is not REACTION it’s about ACTION, so take control.
