Percussion guns such as the Hypervolt, Theragun or Nimbl have shown benefits in improving range of motion and pain discomfort through assumed mechanical, neurological and fluid dynamic changes to the tissue. In this video, we apply those benefits to the patented motion of Core-Tex to further influence the tissue under dynamic conditions using the rhythmical, oscillating motions of Core-Tex.
Addressing the myofascial lines using the patented motion of Core-Tex to create "bottom up", body wide reactions that you just can't do otherwise. The oscillating motion available on Core-Tex has a unique effect on reducing muscle tension and making the tissue overall more compliant to lengthening.
The benefits of the controlled, dynamic motion of Core-Tex for mobility is especially beneficial to the senior population. The ability to target all aspects of the tissue, while hydrating and keeping the nervous system engaged goes far beyond any floor based static stretching. All movements are safe, controlled and dynamic utilizing all the movements of Core-Tex to access areas of the tissue one can not get on their own or even with a therapist or coach.
The participants immediately feel the results and show objective improvements in ROM!
This is a great mobility warm-up that hits the body 3 dimensionally, primes the nervous system and gets the heart rate and circulation going. Try this before your next workout as it preps you from top to bottom and experience Reactive Training!
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.
Hip mobility is a big concern for most. Finding a strategy that works in ways that nothing else does can be a game changer. This hip/groin mobilization move takes full advantage of all the available vectors of Core-Tex to target the tissue in areas you may have never explored before.
Similar to ourhalf kneeling version, the standing version puts more emphasis on the single joint tissue and allows us to integrate the ankle and to some extent the rear foot. Follow along to understand the best ways to maximize this mobility move.
Take a "known" exercise to the reactive environment of Core-Tex and you get a much more comprehensive experience. This version of the Curtsy Lunge can be used as a gentle mobility warm-up or ramped to a high-intensity reactive exercise. With the transverse plane motion of Core-Tex, you get:
1. Rotational demand on the glute/hip complex
2. The need to accelerate, decelerate and re-accelerate rotation from the hip
3. Challenge rotational stability at the knee as the foot and lower move faster and arrive earlier and stay later than the hip
4. Thoracic spine rotational mobility as the upper body is fixed while pelvis rotates below.
5. Reactive variability at all involved joints as each repetition is different based on the motion of Core-Tex.
Those pesky hamstrings where everyone feels tight and no one likes to stretch. Let's go beyond the limited sagittal plane only stretching and experience how we can lengthen and load the tissue in multiple vectors. Target muscles fibers that you would never get on your own or even with the help of a therapist!
We have the honor of sharing with you some hip rehab applications sent to us by physical therapist Bryce Taylor. Bryce shares with us:
"I have a unique opportunity to capture overhead views at my clinic and for the Core-Tex, this makes sense. I've been working with this gentleman for several hip-related cases to restore functional mobility and return him to competitive distance running. He has had surgeries for labral tears and hip impingement. In this case, the Core-Tex has aided in self-administered and guided multi-planar end range of motion of the hip and lower kinetic chain. I like that they can freely explore within the limits of their own subjective boundaries and that, I believe, can have more impact than passive motion."
A traditional yoga flow can be progressed by using the Core-Tex platform to introduce some reactive variability to the body. Using the handrail for added stability-the tilt, slide and translation of Core-Tex can create an entirely novel user experience.
By introducing the transverse plane alone to these moves, the body's muscles, joints and righting reflexes are challenged in ways unique to the Core-Tex experience.
This is another great example of how the environment created by Core-Tex can be applied to an incredible number of fitness and rehabilitative objectives.
Here are four moves that you can do only with Core-Tex that can lengthen and load the soft tissue around the groin to rehab or prehab that area. Create the pre-stretch, and then introduce the multiple vectors that challenge and prepare the tissue for unpredictable stresses.
Allow the Core-Tex to guide your patient or athlete to what their tissue needs. Teach them to do and free up your time!
