Getting Sideways

Technology!

Morning Folks! We’re back on the YouTube today offering some more help for those of you with neck and shoulder pain. This time we’re talking Mobility 101, how you can tackle the most common problem we see in people struggling with shoulder and neck pain. Enjoy and have an awesome day!

YouTube Tuesday: For Dad(s)

Morning Folks! We’re back at it on the Restore/Thrive YouTube Channel today. We received another user request, this one from my Dad. Today we’re taking on shoulder pain. Specifically, if you’re an overhead athlete, a desk-bound worker trying to stay active, a busy mom carrying your kids around, or just a dude who wants to lift heavy stuff but can’t get rid of that nagging ache in your shoulder, this one’s for you. Enjoy!

YouTube Update 5/23/17

Helping the whole world run faster and hurt less.

Morning, Folks! The beat goes on and we’ve got a great foot and ankle exercise up on our YouTube Channel for those of you looking to improve your running, be it for distance, or a field/court sport. This will be especially useful for you if you’ve been told you have flat feet or need an orthotic insert in your shoes to run, train, play without pain. Remember, your arches are not weight bearing surfaces. If they’re flat, they’re weak. And just like flabby arms, it is within your reach to shape them up.  Get after it and have a great day!

More YouTube Goodness

Optimizing your conditioning work on the bike.

Morning Folks! We’ve got another video up on the Restore/Thrive YouTube Channel. This time we’re going after all you head-chasers and back-rounders on your bikes. The example we used today is on an Airdyne bike, but scales across the board-whether you’re Soul Cycling by candlelight, road biking, or conquering the trails, get your body and your mind right with our primer before you head out.

YouTube Update & An Item

Morning folks! It’s Tuesday and that means more YouTube goodness. Click on over to the Restore/Thrive YouTube Channel to check out a quick primer on performance enhancement through a better warm-up.

The extra item for today could be called a “Programming Update”, for lack of a better term. We’re going to be chasing down some big goals over the next 10 weeks. Primarily, opening our first neighborhood gym space. Simultaneously, we’ll be pushing out our first piece of downloadable content for folks not in the area who need some guidance fixing common physical limitations that are impeding their performance in whatever pursuits of a physical nature they’re engaged in.

If that sounds like a lot to tackle in just over two months, that’s because it is.

Which brings us to our programming update. With a few exceptions, you will experience Restore/Thrive on YouTube for the better part of the next 10 weeks. As much as we love to drop knowledge via the blog, we’re not big on putting out less than our best when it comes to content.

Our only ask is that you bear with us (and subscribe to the YouTube Channel!) while we work out these growing pains.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

YouTube Update-How We Fixed Me

We’re all about self-help here.

Morning folks! Hope everyone in the KC-area is getting out and getting after it in the sun and warm weather.

This week’s drop on the Restore/Thrive channel is a quick run down of what my PT friends call “treatment for cervicogenic headache pain”, or what normal folks would call “how to fix a stiff neck and that pounding headache that won’t quit”. Either way you put it, I was in that spot a week ago. But with some time, thought, and the help of a very special friend, I was able to kick a day-long headache and the accompanying neck stiffness it brought in less than 20 minutes.

It’s that approach we’re sharing with you all this week. Enjoy!
