Some things are not as they seem…Things can be Hidden in Plain Sight! This soda bottle looked like any other soda bottle until you pick it up and realize it can come apart. This can be used to store and hide signs of a Substance Use Disorder. Come by the Drop-In Center (the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month) and take part in the Hidden in Plain Sight training to learn more..
These guys thought we were crazy because we took pics of them for a Scavenger hunt because they were wearing personal protective equipment. I wanted to ask them if they had their Working at Heights card. #Prevention . Work away from work.

Dorsiflexion & Landing Mechanics
Yesterday, I discussed the mechanics behind mobilizations geared at improving ankle dorsiflexion. Here is a great post from @physicaltherapyresearch demonstrating how limited dorsiflexion can affect the kinetic chain.
There are a number of theories as to the mechanics behind the association between DF restriction and injury.
1️⃣ Restricted ability to pass the leg forwards over the foot to lower the center of mass during squatting movements; then compensated for via subtalar and midfoot pronation or knee valgus, both have been linked to chronic and acute injury.
2️⃣ Altering lower-extremity stiffness and landing forces is associated with reduction in hip and knee flexion and could increase GRFs or LRs as the reduced joint excursion causes increased stiffness.
3️⃣ Individuals are forced into alternative movement patterns that may be associated with various injuries.
Mason-Mackay and Reid (2017) examined the effects of restricted ankle dorsiflexion on lower-extremity landing mechanics.
There is strong evidence that restricted DF alters landing mechanics.
There is moderate evidence that restricted DF does not reduce peak DF angle on landing and poor evidence for altered frontal plane ankle kinematics. 📚
There is moderate evidence that restricted DF alters knee kinematics and poor evidence for altered hip kinematics.
Evidence is conflicting regarding the effect of restricted DF on peak velocity GRF.
Restricted DF ROM may alter landing mechanics and predispose athletes to injury.
Reduced ankle flexibility may alter movement patterns and increase landing forces.
Altered movement patterns and greater forces may predispose athletes to injury.
Screening athletes for ankle flexibility may assist in identifying those at an increased risk of injury.

Quadriceps Rehab – Part 1: Beginner Stage
This video is part one of a three part series demonstrating some exercise progressions following a quadriceps (“quads”) strain/injury.
We start with the beginner stage, localised rehab of the quads muscle under minimal load. The aim of this stage is to allow healing of the muscle to take place, while gradually reintroducing load and improving muscle activation in a pain free manner 💪. As always this is not a complete guide, your rehab must be specific to your injury and your sport 🚴🏋⚽🎾🏀⚾🏏⠀
These are just some of the potential beginner stage rehab progressions. Each exercise here gets gradually more difficult. You may find that your starting level is higher than level 1.
1⃣ Static (isometric) quads contractions
2⃣ Quads and hamstrings isometric co-contractions (a more functional application)
3⃣ Co-contractions in deeper range of flexion (even harder to activate the quads)
4⃣ Straight leg raise (isometric quads with concentric hip flexion - therefore concentric rectus femoris activity)
5⃣ Inner range quads (concentric knee extensions)
6⃣ Seated knee extensions from 90 degrees (concentric knee extensions through greater range)
7⃣ Add resistance to seated knee extensions (graded exposure to load)
8⃣ Locking and unlocking knee joint during single leg balance (helps re-establish fine motor control around the knee as well as working balance).⠀
Stay tuned for videos on the next two phases of quads rehab, intermediate and end stage rehab!!💪💪
What do y'all know about Narcan/Naxolone? If you have insurance please go get some from your local drug store, it's free and you don't need a prescription. It could save someone's life. More people die in Philadelphia from drug overdose deaths in a month than in Spain in a year. Narcan/Naxolone can be administered to reverse the effects of an opiod overdose. What to look for: 💥 Unconscious/unresponsive 💥 Not breathing 💥 Blue/purple lips and skin 💥 Try and wake individual by making a fist and rubbing the middle of their chest hard with your knuckles: try shouting slapping their face, cold water, or even yelling "YOU'RE ABOUT TO GET HIT WITH NARCAN" (sometimes this is enough to bring someone to responsiveness, being revived with narcan is PAINFUL) 💥 After being hit with narcan,some people think they are going through opiate withdrawal because the effects of narcan are similar to withdrawal symptoms, narcan temporarily blocks the opiate receptors. Don't let someone use again, they will not be able to feel the effects of opiates for another 45 mins to and hour, and will overdose all over again. 💥 ALWAYS call 911. You don't know what else is in their system.
Meet our Office Manager! Wendy Harcourt worked here previously for +4 years. She rejoined the TEAM on 8/08/2008. What she loves most about #chiropractic is how it works with the body’s ability to #HealNaturally through manipulation and other modalities. She is proud of her husband, Dr. Gary, through the many years of experience, who has the ability to help so many of our patients who thought that they had to live with their pain. Wendy says another wonderful aspect of being a part of the TEAM is the #PricelessFriendships that we develop with the patients and each other. It truly is a rewarding experience that she values and treasures. When she is not at the office, she is enjoying time with her wonderful husband and their fur son, Romeo. She is also #cooking , #cleaning , #gardening , etc… and loves to spend time with the grandchildren, #exercise and go boating and fishing. She cannot express enough the joy in her heart when they have #FamilyAndFriends gatherings to #celebrate various events with all of the laughter, great conversations, etc. She never wants it to end and wishes it could be like that forever. She thanks God for all of her #blessings !!!
Day 27: People & Pandemics 💉
The World Bank has estimated a severe influenza outbreak could cost the world economy $3 trillion. And, emerging diseases have quadrupled in the last 50 years, experts say. Why is this? Four main factors seem to play a part:
1️⃣Increased human encroachment into habitats, especially in disease "hot spots," typically in tropical regions
2️⃣Increased air travel and robust wildlife trafficking = easier spread of disease potential
3️⃣Decreases in ecosystem biodiversity (like deforestation or replacing natural habitats with agriculture) results in less species that serve a protective role to us
4️⃣Bad livestock management in poor countries
❓How do we handle this?
▫️Only an estimated 1% of wildlife viruses are known, and immunology of wildlife is a science in its infancy. More research efforts are needed.
▫️Address human needs through the lens of sustainability. If you understand what drives the emergence of a particular disease, then you can modify environments sustainably.
‼️This is not to completely scare you off traveling to South America because of the Zika virus, or turn you completely vegetarian, but you should understand that your habits do have a cumulative effect to the potential of the next pandemic.
SUSTAINABILITY IS OUR KEY! 🔑 .

Perhaps you've heard a little bit about #detox . Perhaps you've heard of intense cleanses like fasting and Master cleanse. This Detox Series is not about that.
Our bodies have the ability to detox themselves on a regular basis. However, this capability has become impaired in many individuals, particularly due to modern day factors, and has contributed to disease.
This detox series is about enhancing your own body's ability to effectively detox again.
Please go to www.drdevinmiles.com/blog to view the article titled "Detox Series: Upcoming July & August Classes" to view and register for the classes.
Harper starts preschool in September and oddly enough, as I haven't ever thought about it with Zac 🙊; I worry a lot at the possibility of her catching headlice! Do you check or use any preventative measures with your children? Do you check your boys short hair as much as your girls longer hair... I imagine with shorter hair we would see them but I've decided I'm not going to chance it with either this summer... who fancies joining me in the #onceaweektakeapeek challenge!? I'm very hopeful though that the #protectandgo from #hedrin will keep them at bay as prevention is better than a cure they say right!? #headlice#children#school#prevention#nursery#preschool
Millennials are changing how charitable giving works in a lot of ways. It would behoove your organization to keep up. Here are 6 things you'll need to keep in mind:
1. They're always digitally connected
2. They're always sharing information with each other
3. They care about results not institutions
4. Stories resonate with them the most
5. They usually find causes through social media
6. They REALLY value transparency
