Who am I and why the heck would you want to come see me? Let me give you a quick overview. • After graduating high school in Franklin, TN, I continued on with my baseball career at The University of Kentucky. I was young, hungry, and excited to "make it" as a successful baseball player. That was until a career ending injury put a halt on all of my plans. After a long rehab process I discovered my new passion. My focus quickly shifted from baseball to school, and I graduated with a Bachelors in Biology. I went on to attend Chiropractic School at Logan University and will officially graduate in December. In conjunction with the doctorate program, I also completed my Masters Degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. With this program, I was lucky enough to do my internship under the Official St. Louis Cardinals Chiropractor Dr. Brett Winchester @wssperformance who happens to be one of the most innovative and insightful Chiropractors I've ever been around. • I'm passionate and excited about sharing my knowledge with athletes of all ages, but especially young athletes, in order to prevent them from having a large career ending injury at a young age like myself. Looking back, I wish someone would have looked at the way I was pitching and warned me of the faults in my motion. You live and you learn, and I walked away with a desire and passion to help athletes like myself. • • • #mtpleasant#charleston#danielisland#chiropractor#chiropractic#sportsrehab#charlestonsports#chiropractor #athlete #dryneedling •
TERES MINOR ANATOMY! What structures can causes shoulder pain? 🤔 . The shoulder very much unlike the hip joint (which is designed for stability due to its role in weight bearing and consequently is supported by robust ligaments and muscles) 👍🏽 is designed for mobility and is therefore predisposed to slightly different stresses. . So what structures can causes shoulder pain? One of the culprits is the Rotator cuff muscle group. 🤓 . The rotator cuff is made up of 4 muscles: Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor and Sub Scapularis. . Today we will discuss Teres Minor👆🏽 (pictured above). . What's interesting about Teres Minor is that one of its functions is to modulate the action of the deltoid. Essentially preventing the humeral head from sliding upwards during GH abduction. 😉 . ATTACHMENT . ORIGIN: ⚙️ - Lateral Border of the Scapula . INSERTION:🔩 - Inferior facet of greater tubercle of Humerus . ACTION: 💪🏽 - External Rotation of the arm - Stabilises the Humerus in the glenoid fossa . INNERVATION⚡️: - Axillary nerve - Nerve Roots: C5, C6 . ARTERIAL SUPPLY:💉 - Posterior Circumflex Humeral Artery - Circumflex Scapular artery . CONDITIONS ASSOCATED WITH “INFRASPINATOUS ” ✔️- Teres Minor Tear (Grade 1-3) ✔️- Muscular Strain ✔️- Atrophy ✔️- Tendinosis ✔️- Calcification of the Tendon ✔️- Bursitis . These are only a few common conditions we see with the Rotator at our clinic 👨🏽⚕️ . Give us a thumbs up if you have learnt something new today! 😃👍🏽 We will be posting new content every 2 days, we feel it important to share knowledge about the human body with everyone, as knowledge is power🙌🏽! . #osteopath #osteopathy #physio #physiotherapy#physiotherapists#physicaltherapy#chiropractor#sportstherapy#personaltrainer#bodybuilding #fitness #anatomy #anatomylab#anatomystudy#rotatorcuff#supraspinatus#shoulderday#shoulderpain#shoulderimpingement #surgery #rehab #rehabilitation #prehab #healthandfitness#painrelief #knowledge #pathology
Conor’s Corner #5 “I don’t really feel dizzy…No wait I can’t focus, or maybe it’s sad. Yeah I’m sad….or maybe even slow?” I hear this every single day in my practice from patients suffering from a concussion, or post concussion syndrome The world of “concussion management” has exploded ever since Sydney Crosby suffered his first concussion and catapulted the academic world into a literature frenzy Since then everyone wants a piece of the concussion market - with most recently Bauer creating a neck guard to “prevent” them from happening In all of the frenzy there have been some fantastic advancements - improved research on cardio-vascular endurance - assessment - medication and treatment Through the fog of new information - one thing remains very clear - sitting in a dark room does NOTHING productive Pure rest times have been cut to 24-48 hrs - followed by modified rest periods and return to activities While returning a person to work, school or being around a sports teams may cause physical symptoms to “persist” slightly longer - there are many positive effects on mood, social life and the attenuation of anxiety and depression Almost every person I see, gets significantly more positive in their outcome when returned, in some way, to a familiar social setting. This CANNOT be underestimated So no more dark rooms - the person is already in the dark, trying to navigate through a room of complex unfamiliar emotions and symptoms - show them the light For more #conorscorner and posts on #anatomy #movement and more - follow me! Thanks in advance. Conor.
🍄WELLNESS TIP: Don't ignore your body clock! 🕰 It is telling you the time to sleep and to wake - you just need to tune into it. ⠀ ⠀ Sleep! 😴 We know it is fundamental to good health. Now 3 scientists have been awarded the Nobel prize 🏆 for their work into understanding just how important it is to tune into our circadian rhythm - our body clock - and its influence on alertness, hunger, metabolism, fertility, mood and other physiological conditions.⠀ ⠀ Visit our FB @thewellnessgroupkanata to see the latest Healthy TV episodes, all about sleep!
