Two oceans and the comrades:
Pounding pavements – the name given to those grueling hours spent in preparation for a big ultra marathon like the comrades or the challenging Camber hill of the Two Oceans.
The mere thought of an ITB, Achilles tendon or calf tear injury is giving athletes nightmares. You warmed up, you stretched, you “took it easy” on the days your body felt tired and “stressed out”. Oh, why is this happening to me?
Do you know someone struggling with an injury that just does not seem to disappear? Share the good news and you may just contribute to a pain free race…
Running is such a natural, yet complex sport. Multidirectional movement occurs in the body as a whole. Groups of muscles work together to perform certain functions and direction of movements or stabilisation.
If athletes suffer from pain on one side of the body it means that parts of their body work harder than others causing a compensation in the body as a unit.
To get rid of the pain or discomfort it is important to get rid of the compensation. Lynotherapy is a treatment technique that focuses on the compensation and associated weakness in the body.
Fascia is the connective tissue that holds all the muscles and structures together. It transmits the forces generated by the muscles in order to produce movement. If you remove all the fascia, muscles will be unable to move you. It is vital to have fascia that works 100% in order to move in the proper fashion.
The different layers of fascia need to move in a gliding manner. If the body is put under excessive strain or stress, the fluid that serves as lubrication between the layers densifies and become a sticky glue like substance, preventing movement of the layers, causing a compensation in body movement and function resulting in pain and injury.
Lynotherapy is a beacon of hope in the runners’ world and can change the way you move during running and possibly your performance. A Neutral body is a happy body!
If you are a runner or know a runner suffering from pain or an injury it is vital to rehabilitate the body as a whole.
