Treating Low Back Pain during Exercise and Athletics (2017)

HAS AN EPISODE OF LOW BACK PAIN MADE YOU FEEL TOO SCARED TO TRAIN OR TO EVEN MOVE LIKE YOU DID PRIOR TO THE INJURY?

Many of us just accept occasional episodes of low back pain (LBP) as a normal part of life, but these episodes of LBP can have both devastating monetary and training consequences.  Your insurance money may be used up.  The pain may have dissipated, but you’re still not sure how to progress through the next steps.  What if it happens again?  Should you train or exercise as hard as before?

What do you do when you’re past the worst of the pain and want to resume training, but you don’t feel physically, mentally or emotionally ready? 

Often after a severe case of LBP, you may be too scared to train like you did prior to the injury, and it turns out you should be!  At least until you understand why LBP almost always re-occurs and what you can do to prevent it.  Don’t let LBP affect your ability to stay active and keep enjoying your favorite activities!

I share very specific strategies for general LBP prevention among athletes such as sport enthusiasts, CrossFitters, weightlifters, and runners.  These principles are helpful for anyone participating in athletics as well as those implementing a healthy lifestyle.  You’ll learn how to address specific causes of LBP as well as the best practices on how to prevent and self-treat when you experience an episode of LBP.  In this step-by-step LBP rehabilitation guide (complete with photos and detailed exercise descriptions), you will discover how to implement prevention and rehabilitation strategies to eliminate pain and get back to training and exercise sooner.  Let’s get started!

Treating Ankle Sprains and Strains (2017)

HAVE YOU EVER INJURED YOUR ANKLE AND ICED IT LIKE YOU’RE “SUPPOSED TO,” AND THEN LATER DOWN THE ROAD YOU RE-INJURE IT YET AGAIN?

Yes!  Ankle sprains and strains are a common everyday occurrence and even the mildest of sprains can temporarily affect your training and mobility.  A sprain/strain can lead to chronic issues and loss of performance later in life when not properly cared for and managed.  Severe cases can lead to lengthy rehabilitation and even surgery.

Icing alone won’t heal the injury over time, and then the doctor bills start to add up as you seek help.  With the cost of healthcare on the rise and no sign of that trend improving, it’s even more necessary to learn how to safely self-treat and manage common musculoskeletal and mobility related conditions.

How about a better way to safely self-treat and manage an ankle sprain/strain?

When you can confidently self-treat, you can limit pain levels, return to activity faster, prevent reoccurrences, and save money!  In Treating Ankle Sprains and Strains, you will learn how to confidently self-treat in order to resume your training and normal activities without the risk of additional damage, injury or re-injury.

I will walk you through the treatment plan on how to rehabilitate your ankle by beginning with the acute phase of rehabilitation through the intermediate (sub-acute) phase of rehabilitation and concluding with a return to full activity and sport.  In this step-by-step rehabilitation guide (complete with photos and detailed exercise descriptions), you will discover how to implement prevention and rehabilitation strategies so that you can safely return to activity.  Let’s get started!
