A Friday post to give praise to this team we have. They make coming into work a pleasurable part of my everyday life!
Not only are they super motivated, driven and uber professional they are just simply awesome people and I can’t say how proud I am to be associated with them. The one person missing from the picture is @inkaoravec 😢
We have some great support as well from @emma.l.chapman @kpote @esther.gambrell and the ever present @sinan.rabee 👀
Also a big thanks to @itsdtpt and @the_gottfather @laurabiceps @nickcollinsuk @foundryfit, it’s just great to be associated with the Foundry Family and all the gang! It’s fun working hard when you have so many good people around you 🙏🙌💪👍
We are pretty proud of all the amazing staff who work for Technique ♥️. The are all experts in their area and great at what they do. They come from all over the world and bring a wealth of knowledge with them. One of our newest physios is Silvia, our Italian lover of beer 🍻.She is well travelled, well educated, always positive and great fun on a night out 😀. She hates speaking on camera but we managed to wrangle a short video of her (we reckon she is a natural), to go along with our newest blog. To find out more about Silvia’s background, interests and pick up some great tips for runners, have a read (link in bio).
Feel like the luckiest guy in the world, these two beauties proposing to me! 😂
@marco0091 and Aj from @ossur Nice to get our hands on the Unloader One X
This product has come a long way over the years and the design and fit of the latest rendition is real progress. Great to be associated with the @ossur and @unloaderone brand, adding real value to patients with #knee #osteoarthritis
Up close and personal with owner Mike 😀. He has been on a pre-work (work, what work?) cycle and has strategically stopped in front of a holly bush… …speaking of holly, 🎄Christmas is on its way (whether you like it or not) and as the silly season kicks in we know how hard it can be to find time to fit in a workout. It’s worth remembering that short bursts of exercise can be just as effective as long sessions. So what’s the catch? The intensity of your short workout has to reach moderate or vigorous levels.
Moderate exertion is defined as brisk walking at a pace that makes it difficult to carry on a conversation and Vigorous exercise means boosting that pace to a jog.
So why not start focusing on your short and vigorous exercise sessions and power through the festive season. 💪 And as Mike says ‘exercise earns fun’ 🎉.
Look out!!! It’s @silvia_sportphysio and she’s got a gun! 😱
It’s actually shockwave therapy and it’s a very effective way of treating chronic soft tissue injuries. In this pic Silvia is using it on the patellar tendon. We have heard rumours that it can cause some discomfort BUT because we only use it for a few minutes at a time, and because it can help so much (read on…), we think you can hack it 😅. Shockwaves works by delivering impulses of energy which increase the blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration and healing, and decreasing local factors which can cause pain.
Neck and back pain? Do you have it? One cause of this pain can be a stiff and inflexible thoracic spine (the bit that connects the neck and lower back). We got our friendly @foundryfit coach and PT @alexriches_pt to demonstrate some exercises that will help keep your thoracic spine flexible. It’s easy to forget that Alex has to have good flexibility to achieve the Olympic level lifts that she performs on a regular basis. Keeping her thoracic and lumbar spine mobile is one of the keys to her success (along with her fiery red hair of course 😀). We can’t all have the innate hair colour but we can work on our thoracic spine flexibility. Read our blog (link in bio) and watch the exercises to find out more about the thoracic spine and improving your spine mobility 💪.
Recovering from a partial ACL injury takes time, lots of hard work and quite a bit of frustration. We are super proud of how far our client Luke has come. We put him through his paces at his last session and he took it like a pro. Inspiring stuff 👍.
