View Full Version : Rehab/Prehab vids

On the start page in August I viewed Scott's vid on shoulder prehab/rehab. He mentioned the "drawbridge" and "handcuff." I have forgotten the finer points of these things and I want to know if they are archived here, or on a separate vid.
Also, I REALLY need a rehab vid for my knees, so i hope that is in the works. Thanks.

I do not think they are archived...
Handcuff - Put one hand behind your back and form a cup or hook with it. Place your other arm in the hook on the forearm. Roll your shoulder back as you rotate your thumb towards the outside (external rotation) and push your hand down towards the floor.
Drawbridge - Keeping shoulders packed, put one arm up, elbow bent, with the forearm behind your head (without jutting the head forward or tilting it down). Put your other arm straight up into the air and grab it at about elbow level with the first hand. While resisting with the bent arm, start to drop your straight arm down to the side gently. When you get to the edge of the movement, relax the bent arm and drop the straight arm a bit further, melting into the movement.
For your knees start doing your Intu-Flow (http://www.profcs.com/app/?Clk=2090594). I have a client who's knees used to creak going up the stairs and could not get down on hands and knees to play with his kids without pain. Now, through simple Intu-Flow movements, he has no trouble getting onto the ground with his kids and his knees are fine going up the stairs. Get started today... ;)

Great! Thanks for the review. I have Intu-Flow, but I was worried about doing some of the moves with my knees. I will get the DVD out and try it again.

I have Intu-Flow®, but I was worried about doing some of the moves with my knees. I will get the DVD out and try it again.
As long as a doctor or physical therapist hasn't told you other wise, you shouldn't have any trouble with the movements. Keep your Rate of Perceived Technique high, Rate of Perceived Exertion low, Rate of Perceived Discomfort low, and you'll be just fine.
