Calf Raises

Video Tutorial #204 Calf Raises

  A lot of us do a lot of leg work to develop our lower body muscles, but completely forget about the calves (or neglect them for fear they'll get bulky). Calf Raises develop flexibility and strength in the ankle joint and calf. Calf raises are a method of exercising the gastrocnemius, tibialis posterior and soleus muscles of the lower leg. The movement performed is plantar flexion, aka ankle extension. Calf raises will also help with blood circulation which is especially helpful during pregnancy. Restless legs syndrome, poor circulation and cramp in the calf muscles are all quite common in pregnancy, due to high levels of hormones running around your system.  These hormones affect blood flow, and it’s common for the blood to pool in your lower extremities eg your calves and feet. Calf raises can help ease these symptoms, if you are suffering, as what they’ll do is aid what’s called “venous return”, which simply means returning blood from your legs, back up to your … [Read More...]

Spring Suspension System Muscles

Video Tutorial #14 My 8 Secrets To Improving Walking and Running Efficiency through Maximizing Human Spring

My 8 Secrets To Improving Walking and Running Efficiency through Maximizing Human Spring Tips For Better Health Ask the doctor, Dr James Stoxen DC There are many causes of fatigue symptoms and reduced walking and running efficiency... During walking and running we burn most of our energy from muscle fatigue. So, if inefficiency in walking and running is an important cause of fatigue, then a logical first step to diagnosis fatigue would be to evaluate the reason why we could be burning too much energy so that we could arrive at a more precise fatigue diagnosis. When you go to the doctor complaining that you are always tired with muscle pain, fatigue and body aches, most doctors just do blood tests as the only fatigue test. When they come out negative, they wonder why they cannot find the cause of your fatigue and exhaustion. This article is important for you if you seem to be always tired but: want to increase your fatigue limit and have more natural … [Read More...]

Suspension System Muscles

Video Tutorial #28 Self-Tests & Exercises To Reduce Over Pronation and Over Supination From Impacts During Walking and Running

  Exercise has long shown to improve health but not all exercise is healthy. Some doctors think just exercise alone without regard to what the exercise does is good enough. Wrong! Exercise such as running and even simple walking with over pronation or over supination can actually do you more harm than good. Also, exercise of any kind with a locked spring puts you at risk for injury and theoretically causes stress, strain, wear, tear and inflammation of the area of locked spring and the floors above.  I feel it is the responsibility of the medical profession and the fitness profession to detail out when its safe for exercise and when it is not. To read more about how the exercise your doing can actually age you then click here Im going to teach you what muscles support the spring mechanism, how you can prevent or train yourself out of an over pronated or over supination gait so your foot and ankle can land in the safe range between supination to … [Read More...]

Stress Fracture Of the Second Metatarsal – Self Help Tips to Treatment and Prevention from The Barefoot Running Doctor

Stress Fracture (2nd Metatarsal) ICD-9 829.0 Stress Fracture Of the Second Metatarsal - Self Help Tips to Treatment and Prevention from The Barefoot Running Doctor Tips For Better Health Ask the doctor, Dr James Stoxen DC With an increase in public interest in physical fitness, clinical practitioners are diagnosing  stress fractures of the foot or metatarsal stress fractures with greater frequency. First described by Aristotle in 200 BC, stress fractures were initially recorded in the medical literature in 1855 by the Prussian military physician Breithaupt, who described what is now known as a march fracture, or stress fracture of the metatarsals. The most common position for a metatarsal fracture  is a second metatarsal fracture, especially in those whose second toe is longer than their big toe. It is also more common in those who overpronate with the first metatarsal in a dorsiflexed position as this places greater load on the 2nd metatarsal. What is a stress … [Read More...]

Shoe Safe and Unsafe Range

Video Tutorial #97 On Your Feet All Day? Fatigued? Achy? Over Pronation? I Recommend Footwear with Extended Medial Counters

    Today i'm going to talk about shoes, specifically counters. A counter will help you stabilize or maintain your heel in a safe range in the rolling from supination to pronation. When your foot lands on the ground it starts on the outside and it rolls to the inside and springs off. If it starts too far to the outside then it could cause twisting of the leg. If it rolls too far to the inside then it could also cause twisting of the leg. Neither one is good. Twisting of the leg is not good, especially when the average person takes 10,000 steps a day or 3.6 million steps per year. What combats this is a group of muscles that I call 'The Spring Suspension System Muscles." These muscles are located on the side of the foot going up. So when the foot lands on the ground these muscles gage the rolling and they don't allow your foot to roll over too far they hold the foot from over rolling. (the tibialis posterior and the tibialis anterior … [Read More...]

Dr. James Stoxen DC shares tips on how to lace a shoe properly

Video Tutorial # 99 What Is The Best Way To Lace Your Shoes?

    Today i'm going to talk about how to lace a shoe. That might sound kind of strange because most of them are already laced when you get them. You might think the company laces them correctly when you get them but that is not always true. I have a tricky way of lacing shoes that will make them fit perfectly, snug and make the shoe a better support mechanism when you need it.   What we have here is a Drew shoe and it has a lacing system that starts over the top. When you lace the shoe from over the top it doesn't allow the leather strapping mechanism to come together so easy when you go over the top on the first lacing. 1. What I do is change that and from the start lace the shoe from underneath. (pictured above) So the first lacing and all of the lacing come from underneath and over. 2. The second thing you might notice is an option or a loop on the top of the shoe. I recommend that you never, ever put that lace through that loop. The … [Read More...]

Video Tutorial #174 Barefoot Running? What If I Step On Something?

  Dr James Stoxen DC shares and demonstrates Video Tutorial #174 What If I Step On Something? part 1 Coco Cay, Bahamas November 9, 2011 As the barefoot running doctor one of the first things people ask me is: Aren't you worried about stepping on something? such as: a piece of glass? a rock? a syringe? (crazy as if there are syringes all over the place?) When you are running with shoes on you don't have to worry so much about stepping on those things but when you are running without shoes on it becomes an extra variable in the running equation. This can be better because it adds another dimension to your run which is called: Agility Coordination and Balance! When you are running with shoes on you become less aware of your running. Listening to nature or your ipod ect. Becoming less aware of your environment because you have the shoes to protect you. When you are running barefoot you might see that there are rocks on the street … [Read More...]

Video Tutorial # 143 What I Learned From Studying Javier Sotomeyer Technique About Improved Performance and Reducing Injury Risk

We can learn a great deal from studying what athletes do to have optimum performance to improve our performance and prevent injury in our lives.  I have learned that plyometric training is one way to develop maximum jumping capacity and to strengthen the Human Spring. It may sound like the latest action film, but controlled impact and maximum power are the aims of a training technique called plyometrics. Yuri Verkhoshansky is the founder of modern human spring training, called plyometrics. Also known as jump training,  plyometrics involves stretching the muscles prior to contracting them. This type of training, when used safely and effectively, strengthens muscles, increases vertical jump and decreases impact forces on the joints. Plyometric drills or plyometric exercises, consist of fast, powerful movements performed in rapid sequence. The intent of plyometric training was (and still is) to develop the elastic recoil within the body (the human spring mechanism) by employing high … [Read More...]

Dr. James Stoxen DC explains the best way to land your foot.

Video Tutorial #169 How To Land Your Foot When Walking, Running And Barefoot Running

  The next tip I'm going to share with you is the correct way to land your foot. The body is the mass and the speed of which we are running is the acceleration. The force of the landing is how the mass engages with the human spring. There are three ways your foot can land your foot with your bodyweight and the relation of your spring mechanism: 1. The first way is when your mass is behind the spring. I call this a deceleration spring landing. It's also called 'breaking' in sports. When your mass is behind the human spring it can: a. come to a complete stop b. slow you down c. as it slows down and breaks the momentum carried you over the break. This is not the optimum way to use the mass to improve the spring action. 2. The second way is having the mass land directly over the spring. This is good to keep the stress and strain off of the human spring. Which leads to wear and tear and inflammation and eventually could lead to injury.  The bounce is very … [Read More...]

Video Tutorial #68 The Exercise Your Doing Could Be Aging You Faster!

  Is it true that exercise could accelerate the aging process? Of course! Exercise is ONLY healthy if your body is moving the way it was engineered to move. Would you take your car for a 10 hour trip if your front end was out of alignment?’ NO! Would you lift weights knowing that your form and technique could lead to stress and strain of your joints causing arthritis over time? No! So by telling your patients that you should exercise as a form of anti-aging medicine it seems right, theoretically. However, if you have joint motions that are not consistent with the way the body is designed to move then you will have: Stress and Strain of Connective Tissue, Muscles, Joints and Bones Abnormal Wear of Delicate Cartilage Surface of Your Joints Micro-tears or Tears of the Connective Tissue, Ligaments, Tendons and Muscles Release of Inflammatory Chemicals Increased Inflammation can lead to Pain and Limited Activity Increased Inflammation is … [Read More...]

Dr. James Stoxen DC Control Fall

Video Tutorial #168 The ‘Controlled Fall’ Its Importance In Reducing Impact Force and Running Efficiency

  Improving your running form and your running technique can help you run faster and run more efficiently. By learning the proper running form you will be able to reduce impact force adding less stress on your body and reduce the risk of injury. Some of these common running injuries include, plantar fasciitis, iliotibial band syndrome, or shin splits, heel pain and Plantar fasciitis. Proper running form is a very important component to every runner’s training plan. Body positioning at the beginning of running training, barefoot running, marathon training or casual running is a factor in increasing running efficiency, specifically; a forward lean. By leaning forward from the ankles, we can take advantage of gravity and the momentum created, allowing our bodies to fall forward in a controlled manor. The 'Controlled Fall' uses acceleration due to gravity therefore giving you a head start in running while maintaining proper running technique and control. Dr James … [Read More...]

Bob Beamon

Video Tutorial #153 BOB BEAMON THE HUMAN SPRING – WORLD RECORD LONG JUMP EXPLAINED

    In this video you will see an example of Human Spring at it's highest-level of athleticism. Bob Beamon broke the worlds record in the long jump and it stood for two decades!! Beamon set this world record for the long jump with a jump of 8.90 m (29 ft. 2½ in.), bettering the existing record by 55 cm (21¾ in.).  When his teammate and coach Ralph Boston told him that he broke the world record by nearly 2 feet, an astonished Beamon collapsed to his knees and placed his hands over his face in shock. In one of the more enduring images of the games, his competitors then helped him to his feet. One journalist called Beamon "the man who saw lightning". Sports journalist Dick Schaap wrote a book about the leap, The Perfect Jump. Prior to Beamon’s jump, the world record had been broken thirteen times since 1901, with an average increase of 6 cm (2½ in) and the largest increase being 15 cm (6 in). Beamon's record stood for 23 years. This is one of the greatest … [Read More...]

Video Tutorial # 159 – Foot Lock! What You Get From Standing Too Long And How To Prevent It

  I have been standing in these shoes all day! My Feet Hurt! Maybe the pain will go away....... Those are six very dangerous words, maybe the pain will go away.... An activity as simple as standing all day can lead to pain in your feet. So you need to know how to protect your feet when you're stuck standing for hours on end, especially on a hard surface. Besides the stress of prolonged standing, the architecture of the foot can also increase the symptoms from pre-existing conditions: Plantar fasciitis refers to the inflammation of the fascia under the heel. Flat or tilted feet (from heel pronation) and bony spurs in the base of the ankle may make the condition worse. Achilles tendonitis results from over stretching of the Achilles tendon. Bunions at the side of the big toe may arise because of heel pronation and may be aggravated by narrow shoe boxes (the area in front of the shoe) and prolonged standing. Corns on top of the toes may be aggravated by scraping against … [Read More...]

Depression ICD-9 296.3, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ICD-9 780.71, Fibromyalgia ICD-9 729.1 The scientific community has found a connection between high chronic levels of Inflammation to the diseases of aging like heart disease and other diseases....  My first exposure to the connection between inflammation and diseases was in the paradise island of Bali Indonesia in 2005. No, I did not get inflamed skin from sun burn laying at the beach.  I wish!  It was in a lecture hall at a medical conference. While lecturing in Indonesia in 2005, I attended a lecture given by Dr. Bill Anton who discussed the connection between chronic inflammation and the diseases of aging such as heart disease. It was that experience that inspired me to write this book because I had an “A-ha!” moment: Chronic Inflammation comes from: Your Diet - The food you eat. (even if it's natural or unprocessed) What you breath in. (pollution, sprays, allergens, ect.) What you touch Injuries Abnormal … [Read More...]

Video Tutorial #157a What Is Foot Pronation And Foot Supination? Is It Good Or Bad?

Over Pronation ICD-9 781.99 What Is Foot Pronation And Foot Supination? Is It Good Or Bad? Tips For Better Health Ask the doctor, Dr. James Stoxen DC You go to your doctor and they say, "Your feet pronate too much or over pronate." Im sure that is what someone said to you which prompted you to google this article. There are many ways to describe over pronation but the way I describe it is when the foot rolls outside a range I call the safe range between rolling from the outside of the foot to the inside of the foot. This is what many call over pronation, excessive pronation, hyper pronation or sometimes called fallen arches. Have you been told by your doctor that you have flat feet? Or do your feet supinate too much which is called over supination or excessive supination? Pronation vs supination, which one is good or bad for you? and Why? If you look at the biomechanical functions of the foot, during the normal gait cycle (walking cycle) the foot can … [Read More...]

Ed Coan Stretching with Dr james Stoxen DC before a world championship

The Ed Coan Story – What I Learned from the Strongest Man in the World

  What I Learned from the Strongest Man in the World, Ed Coan.  In 1986, I graduated from National Chiropractic College, (National University Health Sciences, formerly National College of Chiropractic). a year and a half early at 24 years of age. I was one of the youngest graduates in the college. In fact my father recommended that I grow facial hair as I did not look old enough to be a doctor. My very first patient was Ed Coan. I thought that something/someone greater was taking care of me because when someone gets into the medical field to do sports medicine and the first patient that walks in the door is pound for pound the strongest man in the world, someone must have been looking out for me. Ed Coan had been described at that time "the greatest powerlifter in powerlifting history" and the "powerlifting equivalent of Michael Jordan." At the time he held all the world records for powerlifting.   The powerlifting records were split between the APF, American … [Read More...]

Dr James Stoxen DC Running Barefoot

Why Do I Run Barefoot…

  Dr Stoxen, How Did You Discover the Human Spring Model and Why Do You Run Barefoot? When I first opened my practice, I wanted to be able to heal people and, at the same time, train sports champions. I went on a personal and professional mission not to only build a complete knowledge of the human body - the way we move and why - but to uncover the secrets of elite performance. My first decade in practice, I volunteered to treat athletes at every possible sports event, including 50 national and international championships. I traveled to the former Soviet Union to study plyometrics and plyometric training (high impact training drills that enhance the effects of traditional resistance exercises). I also observed elite track and road training as well as competitions around the world. The athletes benefited from the on - site treatments and at the same time I was learning the secrets of how to achieve elite level performance from the best doctors, coaches and athletes … [Read More...]

I Have Heel Pain. Should I Give Up On Barefoot Running?

Heel Pain ICD-9 719.47  Heel Spur ICD-9 726.73 I Have Heel Pain. Should I Give Up On Barefoot Running? Tips For Better Health Ask the doctor, Dr. James Stoxen DC Whatever your level of running, regular racing, fitness running, or occasional jogging, aches and pains are a part of the sport. While aches and pains should never be ignored, some are more significant than others because they signify chronic running injury. The most commonly injured areas include the arch and heel region, lower leg, knee, Achilles tendon, and forefoot. Running injuries are usually caused by muscle overuse, faulty biomechanics, and lack of flexibility. Pain in the heel or pain in the arch area can often lead to plantar fascitis, or heel spur syndrome. This is an inflammation of a fibrous band of tissue, which stretches from the heel to the toes. There may be pain in the morning, pain after rest, and pain after running; the worst is pain when you wake up and pain at the start of a … [Read More...]
