You can't treat thoracic mobility like hip, or shoulder or ankle mobility. The hip, shoulder and ankle are individual joints. The thoracic spine is major body segment with multiple joints involved, plus the neurologically sensitive diaphragm.
Take your Core-Tex off the floor and open up incredible opportunities for the shoulder girdle. Use it for prehab, rehab, or dynamic warm-ups. Try these extremely effective exercises for your shoulder patients, athletes or clients.
The moves you'll see here will add valuable applications and novel ways to address the shoulder joint and shoulder girdle.
There are so many benefits to the unrestricted rotational component to Core-Tex, especially for rotational athletes. But one application often overlooked is the influence the motion of Core-Tex will have on a ground-based limb.
This demo uses the basic mechanics of a golf swing to highlight how the athlete can promote improved hip rotation on the fixed leg. Core-Tex guides the movement on the ground based leg by rotating with the contralateral limb in contact with Core-Tex.
Pain is a complex experience. Along with the biomechanical/biological elements, the psychological and social influences around expectations, beliefs, coaches, teammates, etc. all influence the body's response. For the athlete, chronic pain related to their sport can be devastating.
Golf is a prime example of a sport with a highly consistent movement pattern. If that movement pattern produces pain or interferes with the preferred pattern- performance suffers.
This video will show how John Sinclair, Performance Coach fromThe Hive performance center in Davie, Florida took his Division 1 golfer from FSU back to 100% using the environment created by Core-Tex.
Why not take a "known" rehab exercise and progress it in a novel and functional way? Take a look at how you can create a progression for your rotator cuff patients and athletes.
Take advantage of the motion of Core-Tex, the stability of the handrail and a few mini bands and you have a rotator cuff strengthening exercise that is more integrated and more interesting to your patient.
Either you golf, you work with golfers or you will work golfers. There are 24 million golfers in the US alone. Want to stand out from the crowd and provide them with advantages no other product can offer?
Then take a look at how Core-Tex inventor, Anthony Carey demonstrates an incredibly effective way to improve swing range of motion AND power with the same motion. Applying principles of Applied Functional Science from the Gray Institute, Anthony shows how to incrementally "load and explode" through all of the transformational zones.
If you really want optimal shoulder health, than the dance that the scapula does on the back of your rib cage is the motion that dictates the playing field. In this video, we take a very fit professional personal trainer, with a history of a distal left pectoralis tear-through a full protocol of scapulo-thoracic mobility and integration.
