When [Some] Pain is Gain Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS): Most soreness occurs 24-48 hrs after PT Less soreness after 72 hrs Slight burning feeling No swelling or bruising Pain alleviated by gentle stretching / massage When Pain is Not Gain Symptoms of Injury:

Pain Swelling Numbness / Tingling Decreased Range of Motion

Discoloration / Bruising Spasm Loss of Strength Loss of Functional Capacity Metatarsal Stress Fracture When Pain is Not Gain: 2 Classes of Injuries Acute

Chronic Onset: Immediate Caused By: Trauma Ex: Muscle Tears, Sprains Onset: Gradual Caused By: Repeated Stress Ex: Stress Fractures, Plantar Faciitis Its Your House: Check Your Foundation

Four Corners of the Feet Small Toe Mound Outer Heel Pad Big Toe Mound Inner Heel Pad Its Your House: Check Your Foundation

Stretches for Supination Stretches for Pronation Its Your House: Check Your Frame Strengthen From the Inside Out Holding Patterns: Posture Aligned vice Out o Whack

Holding Patterns: Muscles Supportive vice Clenched Muscular Imbalances = Less Efficient Muscles Increased Potential of Overuse Injury Holding Patterns: Breath Diaphragmatic vice Chest Breathing Holding Patterns: Sources of Musculoskeletal Imbalances

Heredity Occupational Recreational Anatomical Holding Patterns: Musculoskeletal Imbalances

Holding Patterns: Lordosis Prevention Holding Patterns: Kyphosis Prevention Holding Patterns: Forward Head Prevention Integrated Flexibility Before: Dynamic Warm-Up

During: Mind over Muscle After: The Stretching Debate Integrated Flexibility Static: Low-force, long-duration, nonmoving Hold stretch for 15 30 seconds Has been shown to produce good results on warm muscles

Ballistic or Dynamic: *NOT RECOMMENDED* High-force, short-duration, bobbing, bouncing Invokes a stretch reflex or muscle contraction that can increase muscle tension Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)

Static stretch immediately following contraction against resistance Developed for rehab purposes in physical therapy Superior to static & ballistic stretching *Requires PARTNER TRAINED IN THE TECHNIQUE* Self Myofascial Release (SMR or foam rolling)

A foam roller is a tool to used to apply self-massage to various muscles in the body. Use this technique by placing body weight on the foam roll and moving slowly up or down on a muscle, searching for tender areas or knots in the muscle. Once you find a tender area, stop and hold the pressure for 30 seconds. Flexibility Guidelines Warm up muscles before stretching Avoid bouncing or jerking Stretch gently only to point of perceived muscle tension Move within normal range of motion

Stretching should not be painful Flexibility varies greatly from person to person (based on genetics & training) Integrated Flexibility Progression Integrated Flexibility Progression Start in the plank position.

reach. Straighten your RIGHT leg. Lower your RIGHT hand as close to the ground as you can while keeping both legs straight. Hold for 10-15 seconds. Integrated Flexibility Progression Integrated Flexibility Progression Inhale as you slowly stand upright. Keeping your feet spread wide (a good marker is if you extend your arms out sideways, the ankles should be under the wrists), keep your legs straight as you slowly lower yourself toward the ground. Hold for 10-15 seconds. Staying in this position, walk your feet closer together, bend your knees, sit down as low as you can and push your knees out with your elbows. Hold for 10-15 seconds. Place your hands on the ground in front of you. Bring your knees to the ground. Sit back on your heels. Either

extend your arms out in front of you or bring them along your sides. Breathe deeply and hold for 30 SECONDS! Push back up onto your hands and knees. Arch your back as high as you can as you exhale, inhale back to neutral, repeat 5 times. Return to neutral hands and knees and spine position. Extend your RIGHT arm next to your RIGHT ear. Straighten your LEFT leg behind you. Make sure to keep your hips pointing straight down to the ground. Hold for 10-15 seconds. * progression = bring your opposite elbow and knee together at your bellybutton and then extend back out to starting position. Repeat 8-12 times. Repeat with LEFT arm and RIGHT leg. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) - Static stretch immediately

following contraction against resistance - Superior to static stretching - Requires partner * chest, hamstring, quads Self Myofascial Release (SMR or foam rolling) - Using your own body weight to roll on the foam roller, massaging away restrictions to normal soft-tissue extensibility

SMR - Adductor Begin exercise in prone position with foam roller positioned on the inside of the leg. Using both hands and the leg not on the foam roller as support of body weight, begin to roll your groin muscle on the foam roller. Make sure to roll high and low and inside and outside of the groin muscle group. Never perform

rolling to the point of pain, but always make sure to take your rolling to the point just short of discomfort. This will allow for the greatest amount of muscle mobility enhancement. Repeat exercise on opposite side in same manner. SMR - Calf Begin exercise in supine position with calf placed

directly on the foam roller with both hands supporting body weight. Next, roll the calf across the foam roller from high to low and outside to inside. Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make sure that your muscle is feeling just short of the pain threshold as this will help to establish the best mobility

in the muscle tissue. Never roll over top of the Achilles tendon. Repeat in same fashion on the opposite leg. SMR - Glutes Begin exercise in supine position with glutes placed directly on the foam roller with both hands supporting body weight. Next, roll the

glutes across the foam roller from high to low and outside to inside. Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make sure that your muscle is feeling just short of the pain threshold as this will help to establish the best mobility in the muscle tissue. Repeat in same fashion on the opposite

glute. SMR - Hamstring Begin exercise in supine position with hamstring placed directly on the foam roller with both hands supporting body weight. Next, roll the hamstring across the foam roller from high to low and outside to inside. Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make

sure that your muscle is feeling just short of the pain threshold as this will help to establish the best mobility in the muscle tissue. Repeat in same fashion on the opposite hamstring. Repeat in same fashion on the opposite glute. SMR - Lats Begin exercise in side-lying position with lats placed

directly on the foam roller with both legs supporting body weight. Next, roll the lats across the foam roller from high to low and outside to inside. Make sure to have the affected side's arm outstretched in front of the body. Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make sure that your muscle is feeling just short of

the pain threshold as this will help to establish the best mobility in the muscle tissue. Repeat in same fashion on the opposite lat muscle. SMR Low Back Begin exercise in supine position with low back placed directly on the foam roller with both elbows supporting body weight. Next, roll the

low back across the foam roller from high to low. Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make sure that your muscle is feeling just short of the pain threshold as this will help to establish the best mobility in the muscle tissue. SMR - Midback Begin exercise in supine

position with mid-back placed directly on the foam roller with both elbows in front of face and both legs supporting body weight. Next, roll the mid-back across the foam roller from high to low. You may allow the upper back to bend or fold around the foam roller while maintaining your hip height to promote greater

thoracic spine mobility (extension). Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make sure that your muscle is feeling just short of the pain threshold as this will help to establish the best mobility in the muscle tissue. SMR - Quadriceps Begin exercise in prone

position with quad placed directly on the foam roller with both hands/elbows supporting body weight. Next, roll the quad across the foam roller from high to low and outside to inside. Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make sure that your muscle is feeling just short of the pain threshold as this will

help to establish the best mobility in the muscle tissue. Repeat in same fashion on the opposite quad. SMR ITB Begin exercise in side-lying position with ITB placed directly on the foam roller with bottom hand and opposite leg supporting

body weight. Next, roll the ITB across the foam roller from high to low and outside to inside. Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make sure that your muscle is feeling just short of the pain threshold as this will help to establish the best mobility in the muscle tissue. Repeat in same

fashion on the opposite ITB. REVIEW DOMS When Pain is Not Gain Check Your Foundation Check Your Frame Holding Patterns Integrated Flexibility MARFORRES - Marine Corps Community Services
