Well this was unexpected.
Last week the boys and I went to the bowling alley to have some fun, and the #monsterbaby ran down the bowling alley way...so natural I followed and we both slipped and fell and I hit my head.
Didn't think much of it until the next day and I began having all sorts of nausea, head tension, fatigue, blurred vision, etc.
Went to the hospital and confirm concussion and whip lash, they told me I am fine and they can't do anything for me. :( Go home and rest was all.
I am really thankful for when doctors don't try and push meds or pain pills or want to run a bunch of tests, but in that moment I realized how much my body needed more care than what they were offering.
I am so thankful that I ALREADY happen to have resources and tools to help me, and to be able to fill the gaps that western medicine isn't able to help with.
Chiropractic care for my whip lash!
Yoga to help my body keep moving when I need to be gentle with it.
Essential Oils to help my body's natural response to trauma, for my aching muscles, and relief for my head when it needs it.
And for amazing friends and family that have reached out and checked in with me to make sure I am ok over the last week.
Community is amazing and I love mine!
Thank you @shaunnana for your time, support in the hospital, and for your love.
Shameless Plug: you guys!!! Don't wait until an emergency happens to get your resources set up! Get your box of oils NOW so that you don't have to wait for them to be shipped to you later. I am soooo thankful that i was able to grab my oils and put them on right away. If I would be suffering if I had to wait to order my oils!
Post 139: Curtsy Squat to Side Lunge
Here's a fun movement to perform as part of your lower body warm-up that combines two dynamic exercises into one. Not only will it quickly raise your heart rate, it'll challenge your single leg stability and mobility of both legs.
There are endless variations as you could throw in movements like single leg RDLs and reverse lunges, but do what makes it fun for you.
Either way, this'll get you sweating and help get you ready for more athletic movements.

Your community is Loud. The people you currently serve and those you desire to serve in the future are living in a sea of noise. Distraction and other people's agendas are everywhere. The level of noise is daunting and relentless and frankly, most of the noise is BS.⠀
Through the noise your community is searching. They are looking for answers among the noise and a truthful leader that listens and delivers. For YOU to be found, YOU must rise above the noise. YOU must be the obvious choice for them and their family. YOU must BE The Loudest Voice!⠀
BEing The Loudest Voice does NOT mean putting up billboards, posting on Facebook 30x a day, doing live events 3x per week or yelling at the top of your lungs... Quite the opposite.⠀
BEing The Loudest Voice is an art that must be mastered. It must be congruent with who YOU are. It must be authentic to YOUR voice. It must resonate from within YOU.⠀

Those who fully understand the amazing benefits of chiropractic, don't get adjusted and leave their kids at home.
At The Source, we intend to care for ENTIRE FAMILIES so that everyone can express more life per moment 🙌
So grateful for this stuff right here. I've been in constant pain. Had to get my knee drained. Orthopedic surgeon, chiropractor, and physical therapy. But this 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 is helping! And my chiropractor liked the ingredients so much, he bought 5 for his office!
Happy @FoundationTraining Science Sunday!
Today's post comes to us from Certified Instructor Dr. Mike Lane. Follow Dr. Lane on Instagram as @anatomysense for frequent posts offering deeper discussions of the anatomy behind Foundation Training.
When you retrain your rib cage to get as big as it can through decompression breathing the inferior and posterior serratus muscles are responsible for the expansion and contraction of the ribcage. More importantly, they will also stabilize the thoracolumbar junctions. It's a wonderful area to be aware of. Dysfunction here can negatively affect your lower back and pelvis. When we sit often these muscles are lengthened with no reason to use their potential energy for recoil and strength since they're being stretched for long periods of time.
After reading this, put down your phone, or stand up from your computer, and take 7 decompression breaths. Then do a founder after that for 7 breaths. Your body will be happier, healthier, and be able to support you because you are retraining it to support itself.

One of the great things about committing to a physical fitness practice is seeing your progress in the gym.
Movements that were hard in the beginning become easy. Other movements you never thought possible are conquered. Weights that seemed impossible to lift start coming off of the ground.
All of these accomplishments make the hard work worth it.
But, sometimes we find ourselves stuck. Sometimes we hit roadblocks. And more often than not, when we do hit roadblocks it means we need to take a step or two back in order to go forward.
Here’s is a personal example of mine that might make that concept a little clearer.
I’ve been practicing a kick up to handstand hold on a wall for over 2 years now. And while I was proud of being able to do this at the beginning, I am no where closer to a freestanding handstand hold than I was 2 years ago.
Why? Because although I am able to kick up to a handstand, I have not spent the time truly mastering the progressions that come before it. For instance, here are the list of progressions we have started implementing in our Gymnastics classes. These are designed to be performed every 2 min for 10 min total.
Down Dog Hold x30s
Piked Handstand Hold on Box x30s
Kick Up To Handstand x5r
Wall Facing Handstand x30s
Freestanding Handstand x30-60s
Even though I can technically do Level 6, I would struggle with Level 4 and fail Level 5 right now. So, should I spend my time attempting Level 6?
No. If I truly want to progress to a freestanding handstand, I have to be willing to take 2 steps back in order to make long-term progress.
This is not to say that you have to take away all of your shiny, new toys and go backwards in everything you do in the gym. But, if you find your progress halting (like I did), or you find you are getting injured due to lack of mobility, figure out exactly why that might be happening.
Long term success is not a straight linear progression (although in the beginning it feels that way). Plateaus will happen. And I’ve found that sometimes you need to be willing to step back to move forward.

We hear the terms such as Nordic Curls, Hump Day 🍑 or Leg Day 🏋🏽on a regular basis – so what actually are we working out? 🤷🏽♂️
The Hamstrings are one of the muscle groups involved on those gym days! 👍🏽
Did you know that you actually have 3 muscles that make up your Hamstrings? 🤔 They are called....from lateral to medial.
“Biceps Femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus”.
The Hamstrings cross 2 joints, the hip and the knee and therefore influence both areas. 😮
Today we will discuss Biceps Femoris or “Biceps Fem” (pictured above). 👆🏽Just like the Biceps Brachii in the arm it has 2 heads!
Muscle Attachments .
- Ischial tuberosity
- Linea Aspera
- Lateral Supracondylar Ridge
-Lateral Aspect of head of Fibula
- Flexion of Knee
- Extension of the Hip
- Sciatic Nerve
- Tibial Nerve
- Common fibular Nerve
- Nerve Routs: L5 and S1
-Inferior Gluteal artery
-Profunda Femoris Artery
CONDITIONS ASSOCATED WITH THE HAMSTRINGS ”
- ✔️Hamstring Tear (Graded 1-3)
- ✔️Hamstring Strain
- ✔️Tendonitis/ Tendonosis
- ✔️Referred pain (Lumbar Spine)
- ✔️Referred pain (Sacroiliac Joint)
- ✔️Ischiogluteal bursitis
- ✔️Sciatic nerve mobility limitations can contribute to posterior thigh pain and adverse neural tension could in some cases be the only source of pain without any particular muscular injury
These are only a few common conditions we see with the Hamstring group at our clinic 👨🏽⚕️

Headache week part 5/ 7 😜 This is too crazy to make up !
A public service announcement today with this study! These researches found that when you experimentally irritate joints in the neck - different people feel the resultant headaches in different places!
Why is this important?
1️⃣ Everyone’s nervous system is a little different and a irritated joint can cause different headaches in different people
2️⃣ You can’t identify exactly what is the problem based on where the pain is
3️⃣ You need a professional to assess what joint is shifted and contributing to your headache
4️⃣ Headaches can be the result of CORE PROBLEMS in the spine and nervous system - but we have been over this already in posts 1-4 of headache week😆 💡5️⃣ Correct the joint and why would the headache not go away ‼️‼️‼️ As a NeuroStructural #Chiropractor we don’t guess what your problem is - we TEST. We make sure that your spine and nervous system functions optimally by testing for and removing CORE PROBLEMS causing stress to your nerves, WHICH CAN CAUSE HEADACHES!
If it is time for you to get tested - let us know if you need a Complimentary Case Review to help us get started

Sometimes, this is what breakfast looks like. 🍠🍳🌱 ☕
If I wake up craving something indulgent like waffles, I'll negotiate with myself. If I still want them later in the day or tomorrow, I'll make them. Usually I don't.
Plus, I know I'll feel so much better after a meal like this.
Half a (pre) roasted sweet potato, spinach in garlic oil, an egg over medium. And of course, coffee.
Now, as always, don’t guess, get assessed. If you think you have something going on with your pelvic floor, get in and see a pelvic floor physical therapist. I can’t recommend this highly enough. Ok, now that that’s out of the way, here’s a little explanation of today’s drill.
This is a low level, low threshold, FOUNDATIONAL drill. Aka, don’t expect to ‘master’ this and then miraculously stop peeing when you do double unders or hit heavy lifts. Gotta work up to that. This drill is one of my favorites as it incorporates the entire core, synchronizing breathing with hip movements, and since it’s all attached, that pelvic floor is gonna move too.
The video has directions, but for a little more clarification, these are sub-maximal movements, aka low level squeezing the block and pressing into the band. I’m using a @perform_better band, the second lightest resistance. A ball is actually easier to use between the knees than a yoga block and it won’t require you to hold it with your hand. But I didn’t have a ball, and I wanted a bit more solid resistance as offered by the yoga block.
Inhaling causes the pelvic floor to descend, which is why we want to pair it with external rotation/abduction of the hips (spreading the knees). Exhaling causes the pelvic floor to elevate and return to it’s resting state, so we pair that with adduction and internal rotation of the hips.
For now, start in supine and try to keep a neutral spine and even breathing pattern. Avoid scrunching or lifting the toes, as this tends to be a compensatory strategy and can affect what the pelvic floor is doing. Sets, reps, blah. Let’s try for about 3 minutes of easy work.
Great to see @premierleague players taking responsibility for their health and performance.
@willianborges88 getting checked and adjusted before the big game today against @spursofficial.
Chiropractic is more than just pain relief, it is about getting the body to function to its full capacity.
Could you benefit from Chiropractic care?
No mom I know has time to sit in a waiting room filled to the max with sick people only to get prescribed toxins for a pinched nerve. I know I don't! 😢🤕😡🤕🤕🤕🤕😡😡😡😡😢
I went to the local ER to eliminate a diagnosis of a stroke. I then waited to be seen for a entire hour and thirty minutes. The more I sat, the more people came in. I felt it was time to give up my spot in line. I knew how to restore without drugs. I left that ER and headed to my bed. Once home, I did more stretches, 3 minutes of cold pack therapy and my homemade Super Anti Power Tea! I drunk it last night and again this morning! I think I will be ok. ☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕
I used:. Fresh ginger Powder tumeric Loose Green tea and enough honey for faster absorbtion.
