In this episode of The Movement Fix Podcast
I am joined by Dr. Erson Religioso, aka Dr. E, aka The Manual Therapist. I have known Dr. E for a few years now and have learned a ton from him through our conversations together. After MONTHS of talking about doing a podcast, our schedules finally aligned and we were able to get on and chat!
We start this episode off by discussing common soft tissue treatment myths. There is so much misinformation out there about what happens during a massage, ART®, Graston ®, foam rolling, tennis ball rolling, etc. Dr. E is incredibly knowledgeable about what is actually going on beneath the skin during these soft tissue treatments. He discusses the tool he developed, The Edge Tool, and how he uses it to get the best results. The underlying mechanism for why he does soft tissue work definitely goes against the historically held opinion.
Have you ever noticed that when foam rolling, barely even touch that regular white foam roller hurts like all hell? But over time you need a harder and harder roller/ball to feel like you are doing anything to your muscles? Dr. E goes over neurologically why that happens and how to interpret it. This is important to understand so you don't irritate your tissues even more by rolling them too aggressively. Yes, there is such a thing as rolling out a muscle too aggressively.
Sometimes our range of motion is limited by the ability of a muscle to lengthen, but have you ever considered your limited range of motion may be because a muscle can't shorten? Dr. E explains in the podcast!
Make sure to listen to the podcast for all this great info and MUCH more cool stuff!
