Video Tutorial #84 Dr James Stoxen DC Demonstrates Scissor Stretching Of The Feet

Stills 02 160

  The Human Spring is a concept I developed based on the fact that the body is like a spring mechanism. When you Impact with the ground our body mass comes down with a certain amount of acceleration which creates a force on the body that actually deforms the shape and stores energy during this deformation process. When you push off of the ground it releases that deformity and returns back to it's original shape. Stretching the foot can help to increase the depth of the loading … [Read more...]

Video Tutorial #81 Dr James Stoxen DC Demonstrates How To Self-Help Deep Tissue Treatment Of The Ankle (Subtalar Joint Outside)

Subtalar Joint Outside Deep Tissue Point

  The subtalar joint (STJ) is also known as the talocalcaneal joint. In explaining subtalar joint anatomy, it is  located at in the rearfoot.    The subtalar ankle joint is comprised of the calcaneus (heel bone) and the talus, the bone that sits above it. Also known as the talocalcaneal joint, the subtalar joint is actually three separate articulations between the two bones. The subtalar joint makes up the foundation of our body so if there is a problem with joint movement,, ankle … [Read more...]

Video Tutorial #79 Dr James Stoxen DC Demonstrates Self-Help, Deep Tissue Treatment Of The Gluteus Medius Muscle of the Hip

Gluteus Medius Muscles

One of the most common injuries or cause of injuries in runners that I see is Gluteus Medius weakness, resulting in the gluteus medius muscle becoming strained, tightened and/or leading to a specific Gluteus Medius injury or compensatory injuries down the kinetic chain such as knee joint pain,  foot pain and ankle pain. Releasing and Strengthening this important stabilizer will help decrease running or walking overuse injuries. Releasing and Strengthening the Human Spring is one of the more … [Read more...]

Video Tutorial #78 Dr James Stoxen DC Demonstrates Self-Help, Deep Tissue Treatment Of The Knee Popliteus Muscle

Dr. James Stoxen DC

  Are your knees swollen or do you haven chronic knee pain ? Do you have patella groove pain or infra patellar pain? What I have found in treating patients with pain in the knee is that the knee inflammation and  intense knee pain could be caused by a locking of the Human Spring. In the video below I will demonstrate and explain how to release the knee Popliteus Muscle.   Today i'm going to share with you how to release the popliteus muscle or the knee. The muscle … [Read more...]

Video Tutorial #9 The Human Spring Approach In It’s Relationship To Hooke’s Law Of Physics

Force Of Impact/Energy Stored And Released

  We can apply some of the laws of engineering and physics such as Hooke's Law Of Physics which states: The deeper that the spring is depressed the more energy it recycles back to the run, jog, walk or spring. Hooke's Law of spring engineering states that we can push the human spring to its limits to maximize its potential energy as long as we don’t exceed the elastic limit of the spring or the yield point. Hooke's law of elasticity is an approximation that states that … [Read more...]

Video Tutorial #7 The Four Primary Functions Of The Human Spring Mechanism

The Human Spring Theory

What is it the Human Spring Mechanism and the theory behind it? 1. What the theory says is that the human spring stores mechanical energy therefore it is an efficiency mechanism. A spring is a structure that deforms its physical shape. During that formation process that spring stores potential energy. Then it reforms back to its EXACT original shape and releases the energy back into the mechanism. Think about a spring when you squeeze it down it stores energy and when you let it go that … [Read more...]

Video Tutorial #8 Important Functions Of The Human Spring Mechanism To Recycle Energy From Impacts Enhancing The Efficiency Of Movement

Locked Spring, click here to enlarge

  The Human Spring Theory says that: The human spring stores mechanical potential energy therefore it is an efficiency mechanism The human spring absorbs forces of landings therefore it is a protective mechanism the human spring allows the foot to land on uneven surfaces adjusting the body mechanics to the terrain. The human spring is integrated into the biomechanics therefore it is essential for stress/strain free motion Weakness or locking of the spring can lead … [Read more...]

Video Tutorial #5 Anthony Field’s Recovery – The Key to his Suffering was Found in the Gait Evaluation

Dr James Stoxen DC and Anthony Field Training Backstage

The Human Spring is integrated into the movement pattern therefore it's built into the engineering. When the spring locks it alters the movement pattern and it gets in the way of the healing process. If you are having trouble getting relief from a herniated disc or back pain and you're wondering why it's maybe because your focus is only on the back. You need to look at the entire kinematic chain and check the elastic recoil mechanisms or what I call the human spring function. One day the tour … [Read more...]

Video Tutorial #6 Important Functions Of The Human Spring Mechanism, To Protect The Body From Impact Forces

...

The functions of The Human Spring: The Human Spring recycles energy through the spring mechanism The Human Spring is a protective mechanism The Second important function of the Human Spring is that is absorbs the forces of the landings. Therefore it is a protective mechanism that protects you from the impacts. Kids fall down and cry for a minute and then get up and run around like nothing ever happened. When we as adults fall down sometimes we have a hard time getting up. We … [Read more...]
