"Rehab" and the Wild

"Rehab" and the Wild

First things first : 

There isn't really such a thing as A "Rehab" Exercise. 

There are only strength and conditioning exercises, which we use for rehabilitation purposes.

That said, some things get pigeonholed as 'rehabby'. And that's fine -  they crop up a lot more often in rehab programs than as #bro-sesh #hypertrophy #gaainnzzzz clickbait on TNation. 

However, the reason these exercises tend to appear so often in a rehab setting is precisely because they target a weakness or a physical need in a specific, safe and beneficial way. And they don't stop being beneficial once rehab is "complete".

Impingement Syndromes of the Wrist

Dorsal Wrist Impingement

Dorsal wrist impingement is the most common injury to a CrossFitters, Olympic Weightlifter or Gymnasts wrist. The injury results from the repetitive combination of hyperextension (extending or straightening the joint beyond its normal range of motion) and axial loading, (placing force on the joint or bone).

If I had a dollar for every time someone said to me "so and so told me I have the hardest traps they've ever touched" ... well, honestly all I would probably do with it is bankroll an even more extravagant Woolies Dreamy Choc cookie habit than I already have (but how sick would that be!)

What I mean is, the upper traps would have to be the most massaged area of the body. But they’re still so tight all the time, amiright?

I don't think that anyone I know would characterise me as OCD. 

In any way. 

At all. 

Ever.

At time of writing I have 3785 unread emails, and I admit to being the progenitor of our recent clinic chat "You can wash your hair with dishwashing liquid but you can't wash dishes with shampoo." (the residue just doesn't rinse off and it ends up making food taste like Jojoba or Desert Oasis or one of those other beauty product words we all pretend to understand. You're welcome.)
