BLOG

At Feldman Physical Therapy and Performance, we pride ourselves on putting the, “modern” in “Modern Rehab and Performance”. Because of that we try and post weekly on our blog to help educate and inform our readers. We also strive to keep you updated on that latest news and events in the physical therapy world, but also in our local community.

We are here to be a resource beyond a traditional office visit, or telehealth consultation. We will provide weekly fitness, training, running and cycling advice, the latest information on strength training, and nutrition, as well as other fun and interesting content.

As much as we love seeing everyone in the clinic the goal of our education is to help people prevent injuries before they happen. The human body is complex and intricate, but also resilient, as long as we expose it to the right loads it will always adapt.

If there is something you would like to see us cover, be sure to contact us, and we will make sure it gets covered in our blog ASAP.

How Your Calf Works

They both are in the back part of the lower leg and attach across the back of the heel through the Achilles tendon. The soleus only crosses the ankle joint whereas the gastroc crosses both the ankle and the knee joint. Consequently, the gastroc will also be affected by knee position and in fact, if the knee is bent then the gastroc actually can’t help point the toes. On the other hand, as mentioned in Part I, the soleus is always active in pointing the toes because it only crosses the ankle joint.

Pain In The Hip

it’s important to understand that hip flexion is a primary motion of the leg. And it sometimes needs to be done very forcefully or quickly. If you  walk then you engage in hip flexion often and if you participate in any recreational athletics then chances are you perform hip flexion quite forcefully and with some rapid succession. The best example I can think of is running or sprinting. Think of how many times you lift your thigh or bring it forward quite quickly.
