Dr. James Stoxen DC Demonstrates How To Relieve Shin Splints

 

Today i’m going to talk about Shin Splints.

I am going to show you how to get some relief from the pain from shin splints by doing some deep tissue work.

This is helpful if you have major or minor shin splints.

This is exactly what I do with patients in my office which means i’m teaching you all of my tricks.

  1. First you find the shin which is located in the picture above and in the video.
  2. Then you roll off of the bone with your thumb where the bone drops off into the muscle.
  3. Your thumb should sing right in there.
  4. Start at the bottom and hold that point down to the bone. (it may be tender)
  5. Hold your thumb down until the pain goes away and move your way up through the shin one thumb thickness at a time.
  6. Work your way up to the knee. As you go up towards the knee you will have to work your way deeper to get inside deeper. What you might want to do it employ the other thumb to help push down into the tissue with extra pressure on that area.

(be sure to take your time applying the deep tissue treatment. The example I depict in the video was done quicker than normal as I was focused more on showing area to be treated and not the timing)

You can do a couple of passes up and down the shin. You may find that the first time might hurt but the second and third time the pain might is less severe and improvements are being made.

What is happening when your putting pressure on the muscle the brain gets a message that things are getting better. For some reason the brain decides to let go on the lock down that it has on that muscle on your human spring.

In my opinion the shin splint is formed when the human spring is locked and can’t absorb the force of the landing comfortably into the spring with spring protection. Instead it bangs into the ground and sends splintering force up to the shin and the tibia which creates muscle spasms from that abnormal movement pattern.

By releasing these muscles your actually reducing cause of the shin splints.

I recommend that you go through all of the Video Tutorials on the blog especially the Self Help Release Video Tutorials #77-89 to help you release your human spring

Dr. John Petrozzi DC

Challenge your abdominal muscles with a hanging abdominal raise with pike exercise 

In this video tutorial I introduce to you Dr. John Petrozzi DC who is also the principal of Petrozzi Wellness Centre which is located in Leichardt, Australia.  Dr. Petrozzi also assists the children’s entertainment group ‘The Wiggles’ and other people with high public profiles. To learn more about Dr. John Petrozzi DC and Petrozzi Wellness Centre,  click here.

Today we are going to demonstrate a hanging abdominal raise with pike routine. This is one of Anthony Fields, frontman for the ‘Wiggles‘, famous routines that he did to get himself into super fit shape.

You can read about it in his book, ‘How I Got My Wiggle Back’ which you can pick up in Australia, US, UK and Canada. You can also order it from the Amazon site by clicking here.

Dr. James Stoxen DC Trains Anthony Field Backstage

This is not an easy exercise for most people. It is more advanced. We will challenge Dr. Petrozzi (although he is a young guy in shape).

This exercise is one you can do just about anywhere there is a bar, rings or something to grab hold of above.

A park setting such as this one in the video is an excellent place.

You can even take your kids and do this exercise taking turns with them.

  1. Make sure you hold on with a good solid grip above to the rings.
  2. Relax your arms.
  3. Lift up with your legs to a pike position
  4. point your toes
  5. try to hold for 20 seconds

To challenge yourself even further you can add a lift from the mid section while lifting your legs into the pike position.

If necessary you might need someone to spot you underneath your legs.

Dr. James Stoxen DC and Dr. John Petrozzi DC

 

Be sure to breath in and out.

As you can see above in the video the hanging ab exercise can be challenging the further you get the legs out from the fulcrum, the more the force is at the abdominal area.
