Harmonious Running Involves Equilibrium and Stability

Harmonious Running Involves Equilibrium and Stability

If your running regime has stopped for six weeks in a row, you need to correct muscle imbalances prior to resuming your exercise routine. If your muscles are unbalanced, you can experience poor posture and muscle misalignment. Negative symptoms associated with muscle imbalances can lead to a potentially harmful injury caused by running. Once you get the muscles back into a harmonious relationship, your legs work together without risking exposure to any negative issues.

A Brief Look at Muscles

Your mobilizing muscles are large groups of muscles that influence the body to move. The stabilizing muscles are small groups of muscles that go against the flow of gravity. Both groups of muscles must live together in peace. Otherwise, you risk falling down.

Causes of Muscle Imbalances

  • A mobilizing muscle is too tight

  • A stabilizing muscle is too weak

  • Misalignment causes a breach in your nervous system

  • A neuromuscular system problem causes you to lose your balance

  • Your body experiences poor posture

  • Muscle reaction time becomes slower

Basic Exercises that Keep Your Body Balanced

  1. Stand on one leg and point one foot straight out in front of your body. Practice standing this way without losing your balance.

  2. Swing both arms to help your body become more stable while you are in a standing position.

  3. Push your big toe forward while simultaneously maintaining a straight body.

  4. Kick your legs backward while you keep your body in a linear position.

Ways to Judge Proper Form

Closed-chain exercises can assist you in evaluating muscles that are no longer working together in a cooperative manner.

These exercises enable you identify areas of your body that are stiff or out of balance. The exercises let you know whether your muscles need to get stronger or if their motion ranges are experiencing issues.

The Beauty of Symmetry

Use close-chained exercises to achieve the correct symmetry. These exercises mimic the same leverage patterns occurring when you run. When practicing the exercises, aim for perfect muscle coordination.

For instance, when you practice swinging the arms, pay strict attention to your goal. Your purpose is to place specific angles in the right places. Try to keep the harmony flowing from the beginning to the end of your session. Practice a favorite meditation technique as a way to maintain your focus throughout the exercises.

Do not underestimate the significance of attaining a higher level of concentration. When your mind focuses on each of the techniques, your body is able to achieve improved stability. You cannot practice close-chained exercises with precision unless your mind is in a meditative state.

Stop performing these exercises the minute you start to feel tired. Otherwise, you risk having an accident. Take frequent breaks. Before resuming the exercises, eat an energy bar and drink a glass of pure water. It is better to perform each exercise correctly rather than experience a problem. You do not want your body to become twisted into an unnatural position.

In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
