Dr. Robek and a few patients suffering with shoulder and lower back conditions attended a private aqualogix group class at FIT in Downtown. A big thanks to Jon Edge who instructed the class and kept us motivated when we were starting to fatigue. This was tough! Aqualogix is a great work out and a safe way to use water resisitance for rehabilitation of an injury, especially shoulder and hip. Water resistance is extremely effective for people of all ages and abilities, and is safer than traditional weight training. You can visit aqualogix.com for more information.
We have been treating a number of shoulder injuries lately such as frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tears and strains, trauma to the shoulder during contact sports, and subluxation/dislocations of the shoulder. Often these injuries result when the patient has imbalances or instability in the joint due to dominance of certain muscles such as the Pec Minor/Major or Subscapularis and weakness of other opposing muscles of the rotator cuff. By nature, the shoulder is a weak and unstable joint, it’s important to ensure that it is balanced and strong before undertaking any aggressive exercise program. If you want to understand more don’t hesitate to come in for an assessment or personal training session at Fix Body Group. We can prehab or rehab any shoulder injury that you might have or incur in the future.
We are pleased to announce the recent addition of the newest therapist, Jeff Lacson to our team. A Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP), Jeff will be providing massage therapy and doing myofascial release and structural integration. Jeff will work closely with Dr. Robek and Jonathan to further complement the various modalities utilized in our clinic. Jeff has become an expert in treating postural faults, chronic pain, and overuse injuries. He has extensive experience working with CrossFit athletes, Martial Arts, body builders, runners, and triathletes. He currently trains in martial arts and does CrossFit.
Many of our patients have already seen rapid improvements in mobility, posture, performance and a decrease in chronic pain and injury symptoms due to Jeff’s care. If you haven’t been getting regular massage, or are looking for a new approach, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with Jeff today!
