DM #711: A symptom of what? 💩y movement patterns and poor stability.

Had some AWESOME discussions today at my @rocktape FMT Basic course and this was one of them. It’s pretty cool that modern medicine enables us to be able to replace our joints, but we gotta ask why we needed that replacement in the first place!

Many folks will chalk it up to overuse injuries, but I contend that for the vast majority it is in fact secondary to misuse, and honestly, lack of use. Plenty of folks in countries outside of the US, doing way more physical activity day to day than us and having no problems.

Now, I’m not talking about congenital issues here, so please spare me the 🙋🏼‍♂️ but, but, but. My dude @aswansonpt (you need to be following him) recently posted a study that highlighted the fact that long distance runners were in fact no more likely to develop arthritis than non-runners. In fact, that sedentary, non-running population showed some less than desirable stuff 🙈.

So what’s my point? Arthritis is way more a result of your poor movement than the cause of your disability and dysfunction. I’ve got the MRI to prove it. All too often folks have pain, get imaging, get told they have arthritis, stop moving, get worse, and then need surgery. This doesn’t have to be the case.

Move better. Move more. Understand the difference between cause and effect.
