I wish I could give F.I.T. more than 5 stars! From the moment I walked into their office, I felt supported and heard. They took time to listen to my experiences, and then thoroughly evaluated me before being spot-on with a diagnosis - which was confirmed by an MRI. My therapist is gentle, yet incredibly firm with her manipulations and exercises. She is compassionate and supportive with me as I work to build strength and flexibility in my back and hip. I cannot say enough about how professional, kind, and personable everyone is at F.I.T.!!

Jim and the staff are awesome! I’m a baseball coach and was having some back issues due to throwing about 1000 batting practice pitches a week. Back is definitely better and Jim was the first Chiropractor that I’ve met that actually understands the biomechanics of throwing so his training is way above average!

For months, whenever I'd exercise I'd have frustrating knee pain that was causing me to never finish a workout. I was impressed with how Dr. Allison really took the time to understand my symptoms and put me on a plan to recovery. After our first appointment, not only was I relieved that I had someone dedicated to my recovery, but I noticed considerable results after that first session. Within a few weeks I was back to my regular amounts of exercise. What was of particular value to me was not only did my pain get resolved, but I had the knowledge and specific exercises to keep the injury from returning.

Dr. Aaron is great! I was originally referred to him for helping reduce my migraines and tension headaches after their frequency and intensity had spiked dramatically. Dr. Aaron developed a treatment plan which consisted of chiropractic care and soft tissue work, as well as a number of changes and exercises which I work on in my own time. Overall, working with Dr. Aaron has helped to reduce my number of migraines and tension headaches as well as lower their intensity. I would highly recommend Dr. Aaron!

The whole staff at F.I.T is friendly, welcoming, and professional. Bridgette is an extremely knowledgeable PT and has helped me tremendously in recovering from a discectomy. Michael is an amazing chiropractor with so much patience and positivity — it’s clear he’s very passionate about helping people and he really knows what he’s doing. You will be in great hands with anyone on the team at F.I.T. 100% recommend!

Stretching before or after a run is not the debate for this post! Stretching is an essential part of every workout. Exercise can shorten your muscles and cause lactic acid build up. You want your muscles to be at their full range of motion while you are exercising to decrease the risk of injury. What happens if you get a twinge or an ache during your workout? Here are a couple of dynamic stretches you can do on the move if an issue were to arise.

Doing dynamic stretches during your workout will be more beneficial. Make sure you move slowly and controlled; don’t bounce during the stretch! You can also stretch in 3 different planes of motion to help stretch the muscles in each direction it moves!

Get creative and turn ordinary objects into stretching modalities. Anything will work: a curb, an electrical box, or a bench!
1. Hamstring Stretch
2. Calf Stretch
3. Hip Flexor Stretch
4. Adductor stretch
5. Posterior Hip Capsule Stretch (Standing Pigeon Stretch)

Stay limber and feel strong. Feel Better than Before. We would love to help take you that extra mile, so reach out if you want someone to help you take your training to the next level!

😩💥 Stiff and painful shoulder? 💥 😩

Here is a quick and dirty exercise that can help reduce shoulder derangements.

A derangement is a clinical presentation associated with a mechanical obstruction of the affected joint.

To do these at home find a table or desk that is counter height and turn your back to it. Next, place the back of your hand on the table and perform a mini squat to bring your shoulder into extension. You should feel a nice little stretch!

Extension is the most common direction of preference in the shoulder and is a great place to start for anyone dealing with shoulder pain.

NOTE: it is common to have some discomfort while doing these exercises, but it should go away quickly after finishing! And next time you come into the office be sure to mention it to your provider!

✨TURNOUT: It’s what every dancer hopes to improve in order to achieve better technique with various dance positions. But how do you improve it? ✨

While many believe stretching is the answer, STRENGTHENING in a slow and controlled manner will help the most to develop your turnout. Once you have mastered the basics, strengthening within functional dance positions helps to further develop your overall technique.🩰

Movement 1: The first strengthening exercise is performed lying on your stomach with one knee bent to 90 degrees. A resistance band is placed around the ankle with the ends held or tied to a stable object. Allow the band to pull your foot towards where the band is anchored before slowly rotating the banded leg into a neutral position. Keep both hip bones flat on the table as you resist the band throughout the entire exercise. You should feel tension in the glutes to pull you into the neutral position.

Movement 2: The second strengthening exercise is performed in a more functional dance position. Begin lying on your stomach on a tall table or surface. Move towards the edge of the table to lower one leg off the edge into a neutral passé position. (Don’t forget to use the opposite hand to keep you from falling off the edge!) Next, initiate the same glute muscles found in the previous exercise to slowly rotate the lower leg into a turned out passé position. Both hips bones should remain flat on the table with the other leg staying straight in a stationary position.

💡REMEMBER: These exercises are options for improved glute strength to offer improved rotational strength for turnout. Focusing on the hip internal rotators is just as important (see our last dancer’s post!), as well as cross training, and core strengthening to accomplish functional strength for dancing.

Give these a try and if you would like more tips on turnout, reach out to us for an appointment!👯‍♀️
