Return From Injury

WHEN CAN I BE ACTIVE AGAIN!?!

The answer to this question of return to activity is critical because a previous injury is the number one cause of any injury whether it is a concussion, sprain, or pulled muscle. Return to activity refers to the point during the injury recovery process when a person is able to go back to moving, working, or playing at a pre-injury level. Using our qualifying processes, UpRight Movement is able to base return to activity on simple, repeatable, objective measures as well as three levels of clearance; Pain, Quality and Quantity.

I was in need of having a total knee replacement in one knee. For six months or so, UpRight Movement helped me get into a condition that would be more conducive to successful physical therapy and recovery after surgery. Apparently, UpRight Movement did everything right because I recovered quite a bit quicker and more fully (regained more motion in the knee) than is typical following this surgery. I highly recommend UpRight Movement to anybody looking for training to help them improve their life and their lifestyle. UpRight Movement has improved my gait and my balance. I am in better shape. My posture is improved; I’m actually a half-inch taller now than when I first started. I look better and feel better. Gary Hendrickson

Flexibility + Strength = Mobility

Or You wouldn’t drive your car without brakes. MOBILITY — Increasing Joints Ability to Move Joint Structure – Bone – Ligament – Capsule Physiological – Muscle – Tendon Neurological – Fascia – Tone — Multi-Variant — Multi-Planar — Functionally Driven = What it Produces, Not What it Looks like.

Practicing Awareness: Body Scan

Practicing Awareness: Body Scan

“Without loving-kindness, staying in pain is just warfare.” Pema Chödrön   Being mindful is to have a conscious awareness of the present moment; to allow the full experience of humanness to occur- allowing thoughts, feelings, sensations, whatever shows up to simply exist. The conscious mind is our objective or thinking mind, however the subconscious mind stores and retrieves everything that has ever happened to us and controls 90% of our lives. The practice of being present provides access to the subconscious mind and Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), which contains an enormous amount of knowledge, memories, wisdom and recovery processes that we are likely underutilizing. One of the primary ways to access the subconscious mind is meditation. It can simply be a period of awareness where you stop everything you’re doing and simply pause to notice what shows up in stillness and silence. The Body Scan is one practice that can help you to begin to manage your subconscious mind. Find a quiet, comfortable place to lie down or sit. Put aside anywhere from 5-45 minutes for the scan. The time you allot will affect how slowly or quickly you move from one area of your body to another. UpRight Movement helps to support the positive management of  Your “BODY SCAN”, with its newest Body Scan handout. Improve your Mindset and make progress toward your goals by leveraging UpRight Movement Principles. Aid your Recovery, Health and manage Stress so you can feel better, move better, and perform better! The Pillars of long lasting change are: Mindset, Recovery, Nutrition/Hydration, and Movement.

Managing Inflammation

Managing Inflammation

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates   Did you know that you  can manage inflammation through nutrition? While some inflammation is necessary to fight off infection and repair broken-down muscle after a workout, chronic inflammation can cause serious health issues. Eating quality meals high in vegetables, fruits, antioxidant-rich grains, fish and healthy proteins, and nuts and seeds has been shown to help prevent long-term health issues by helping to limit inflammation.  Learning simple strategies to control inflammation in the body can be a game changer for your health, performance, and recovery. Here are five dietary contributors to inflammation to be aware of. Fill your diet with anti-inflammatory options like grass-fed meat, fish, eggs, and fruits and vegetables.   Omega-3 fatty acids are also a great source of healthy fat that have been shown to help maintain the body’s normal inflammatory response during strenuous exercise.* THORNE RESEARCH: Sports Performance | Omega-3 *SIX REASONS YOU MAY NEED TO FILL THE GAPS MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS SPECIFIC STRENGTH & POWER GOALS INCREASED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY DIGESTIVE ISSUES INCREASED STRESS KNOWN NUTRITION DEFICIENCY *This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
