Episode 11 All About That Bass Dead Butt Syndrome.png
Episode 11: 
All About the Bass: Dead Butt Syndrome

Beware, this episode is full of laughing, giggles and butt puns. We just couldn’t help ourselves. The main message of this episode is that we can’t just blame the butt, it is about so much more.  We must think about running posture, the neuromuscular connections and strengthening the hips, core and glutes functionally. 

 

Dr. Kacy and Dr. Kate also spend some time defining “dead butt syndrome” and debunking common myths discussed in the media.

Episode 09: 
What's The Nerve Got To Do With It?

Neural tension is a common issue amongst athletes, but is often missed. Neural tension can present itself as tight muscles, stretching or pain. In this episode Dr. Kate and Dr. Kacy dive deep into what neural tension is, how to test if you have it, why it's important and what to do about it. 

 

Check out one of our recent blogs on neural tension: https://www.precisionpt.org/post/what-is-neural-tension

 

What to see if you have neural tension? The slump test is a great way to tap into the nervous system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFGfP84uwEo

However, it is best not to treat it yourself, nerves are much easier to flare up than muscles.
