How Training Effects Pain, Anatomy Trains, and Lumbar Instability Tests

Posted Jun 28 2012 6:00am

Today’s stuff you should read comes from Runner’s World,, and Harrison Vaughn.


Inner Circle Update

Inner Circle members don’t forget to join me on today’s live webinar.  We are going to talk about how pelvic positioning should influence the way we stretch.  Sometimes I wonder if we do more damage than good when stretching!  I’ll be talking about how subtle variations in pelvic alignment may influence how we stretch (or don’t stretch!) in in a big way.  These simple strategies will help you:

  • See the pelvis in 3D
  • Know when the stretch and when not to stretch
  • Understand how to assess pelvic alignment while you are stretching
  • Learn how little tweaks can make a big difference in stretching

Log in to the Inner Circle dashboard for info on how to attend the live webinar or today.   As always, don’t worry if you can’t make the live webinar, I will get a recording of the webinar posted for all Inner Circle members to watch ASAP.

Also, a bunch of people have asked about paying upfront for an entire year.  I had originally thought against this as I truely want this to be an “inner circle” of people that want to share, learn, and participate.  Basically, people that really wanted to be a part of the membership.  I want to provide insane value and didn’t want someone to sign up and be “stuck” with it and not happy.  However, you talked me into it and there is now a link to subscribe for a year at a time as well.  You twisted my arm…


How Training Effects the Perception of Pain

Runner’s World has a review of an article published in the journal Pain regarding the perception of pain by athletes.  Probably a chicken or the egg concept – do athletes learn to have better pain tolerance or do people with better pain tolerance become athletes?  There has to be a middle ground.

Anatomy Trains has a really good article summarizing the Anatomy Trains concept.  I really liked this article.  It was a good refresher for me but also a great intro if you haven’t read Anatomy Trains.  If you haven’t read it, you do need to –  from Amazon!

Lumbar Segmental Instability Testing

Harrison Vaughn discusses a recent article in JOSPT reviewing clinical testing for lumbar segmental instability.  How evidence-based in your exam?
