ENTER TO WIN

After an injury or surgery, an exercise conditioning program will help you return to daily activities and enjoy a more active, healthy lifestyle. Following a well-structured conditioning program will also help you return to sports and other recreational activities.
 
This is a general conditioning program that provides a wide range of exercises. To ensure that the program is safe and effective for you, it should be performed under your doctor’s supervision. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist about which exercises will best help you meet your rehabilitation goals.
 
Strength: Strengthening the muscles that support your lower leg, foot, and ankle will help keep your ankle joint stable. Keeping these muscles strong can relieve foot and ankle pain and prevent further injury.
 
Flexibility: Stretching the muscles that you strengthen is important for restoring range of motion and preventing injury. Gently stretching after strengthening exercises can help reduce muscle soreness and keep your muscles long and flexible

Modern Approach to Acquisition of Motor Skills: Dynamic Systems Theory

Previously movement scientists believed that we had motor programs encoded in our brain, and essentially a button would be pressed and out would come a gross motor pattern. This led to the prevailing thought that the expert athlete had less noise when completing movements. Training resulted in what you normally see at any big gym. Static exercise with isolation as ideal and a bodybuilding mentality. Recent research has now shown the expert has more noise when performing a particular task. Essentially they have more degrees of freedom to complete a specific task and more ways of solving a problem. SO… the Dynamic Systems Theory states that there are multiple subsystems that go into movement output. This includes the environment, psychological constraints, anything in the peripheral system, and the list goes on. The old way of thinking was a top down approach. We now know anything can affect the system and the expert has more ways of solving a movement problem depending on which subsystem might be the confounding factor. This leads to the Premier Fitness Systems approach, which includes increasing movement bandwidth, increasing transferability of training and decreasing reliance on specificity of sport specific skills. Why would we want to do that? Because sport by nature is very asymmetrical and leads to imbalances. By training with a Dynamics System Approach in mind we can train the human body to increase resiliency and teach it more ways to solve a motor problem.

WASHINGTON, July 19, 2017 / Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

JULY 19: THE HOLE TRUTH

Profile America — Wednesday, July 19th. The first 18-hole golf course in the United States opened this week in 1893 in Downer's Grove, Illinois. The course was an expansion of an existing 9-hole facility. The Chicago Golf Club soon moved to a new course in nearby Wheaton, and the Downer's Grove course has since reverted to 9 holes. The sport arrived on these shores from Scotland, and there is evidence of golfing in the late 18th century in South Carolina and Georgia. Today, over 25 million Americans play the game at least once a year at the 11,280 golf courses and country clubs across the nation. These establishments employ over 295,000 people in the nearly $21 billion per year pursuit of what a frustrated player called "a good walk spoiled." You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at www.census.gov.

The newly introduced R Motion of ProTee United and Rapsodo now makes it possible for golf enthusiasts to have their own golf simulator at home, in the barn or in the attic.  
 
"The device automatically connects to the PC on which the software is installed," said Dennis van Drie, director of ProTee United. "Then you place a net to catch the balls and put a piece of carpet or grass on the ground. Now you're ready to practice. Hit the ball and watch it fly over the screen."

TAMPA, Fla., June 29, 2017 / -- Recent research by the American College of Sports Medicine suggests that recreational golfers are more vulnerable to long-term injury risk from the sport than many may think. The weekend golfer tries to use golf as a relaxation tool; but, in many cases, long-term injuries can affect their everyday lives. Muscle strains, tendon attachment, and spinal disc problems are just a few of the injuries that can occur while playing golf. Dr. Abraham Rivera of Physician Partners of America states, "The golf swing involves the dreaded spinal triad of bend, twist and lift. Few things can play more havoc on our lumbar disc and this motion can grind a lumbar disc away."
