TRAIN FOR YOUR LIFE 🏃‍♀️ 🧘‍♀️ 🏄‍♀️ 🏋🏽‍♀️🏂🏊‍♀️🧗‍♀️ For the past ten years I’ve taught between three and fourteen professional continuing education trainings every year on topics such as back pain, therapeutics, therapy balls, self-care, injury management, anatomy, core, hips, shoulders, pelvic floor, breathing and stress relief. In nearly every training I am asked what’s “best”, what “should” so-and-so be doing in x or y situation. I always say “you want to train for YOUR life, not someone else’s” 👶 New parents might want to train for bending, carrying, picking up and sleep deprivation (joking, sort of, not really, on that last one) 👩🏼‍🦳 Older adults might want to strength train to minimize sarcopenia, maintain strong bones, improve balance and add in heart-healthy cardio. 👨🏻‍🍳👮🏻‍♂️👨🏼‍💻Chefs, cops and desk workers use their bodies in vastly different ways don’t they? and so it would benefit them to train for the ongoing demands of their lifestyle. 🚲 If you’re a biker, aim to improve your wrist, shoulder, neck, quad and hip flexor practices ⛵️ If you’re a sailor, take the time to warm up your hands, shoulders, neck and back before races. 🏃‍♀️ 🧘‍♀️ 🏄‍♀️ 🏋🏽‍♀️🏂🏊‍♀️🧗‍♀️ Train in such a way that you are conditioned to meet the demands of *your* vibrant life! ☀️ You’re worth it ~💋 Dinneen

REFRAMING PAIN is one of the first skills I teach my Retrain Back Pain clients. It’s a game-changer. ✨ Certainly, back surgery should be considered a “last resort” after other modalities have been exhausted. In this case, my client’s pain was persistent. Her MRI revealed cauda equina and thecal sac compression so the radiologist and doctor recommended immediate surgery. I was able to help her understand the radiology report and why, in this case surgery was urgently needed. Plus it wasn’t a fusion, it was discal. I helped her understand the “whole picture” in terms she could understand and she went from feeling freaked out to feeling empowered in her decision-making. This is golden. ✨Living with back pain can be isolating, confusing, overwhelming. It’s important to get the support and to learn the skills to help you deal, recover and thrive. ✨ #retrainbackpain #caudaequinasyndrome #discherniation #herniateddiscrecovery #discectomy

BACK STRETCH 101 a.k.a. “The Counter Stretch” or “The Doorknob Stretch” ~~~ Not all back aches require stretching but...this one’s the best of the lot because it doesn’t require spinal flexion (like a fwd bend) or deep knee and hip flexion (à la child pose) to do it. Just grab on to a fence, doorknob or your kitchen counter, walk it back and breathe. You can hang a lil left or right too. * Traction is why I like it plus you get yummy side & back body stretch and inadvertent rib cage elevation which eases your breath and perfuses your everything with oxygenated blood. Go get some. 😋 #retrainbackpain #backstretches #backstretch #spondylolisthesis #discherniationrecovery #discherniation #herniateddisc
