Over 50? 3 MUST do stretches before it's too late

As a Physical Therapist who is now 50, I understand what it takes to stay active, healthy, and as painfree as I can. I do these series of stretches myself to keep me active and on the basketball court.
We only go as far as our thoracic spine takes us. Higher level, dynamic activities require our spine to flex, rotate, extend, and side-bend in many different directions. Most this will come from our thoracic spine due to the unique anatomy of the rib cage. Learn how to keep yourself flexible and in the game.
Here are the links:

Thoracic rotation in sitting Thoracic rotation sidelying Thoracic side-bending (stretching of quadratus lumborum) Thoracic extension with foam roller Good luck, hope it helps!

Take Care of Yourself ( Self Distancing & Quarantine Tips for Caring for Others & Self Care )

Hey awesome ones, today I thought I'd just put aside my makeup and fashion and have a heart to heart chat with you. As many of us are self distancing, quarantined or in self isolation at home I thought I'd talk about how I'm caring for others, mostly from afar and how I'm also looking after myself with a little self care. I must say that I've had to get creative staying at home for this long time since I know I am one that could get bored easily. This coronavirus is keeping us away physically but we still have each other on the social media platforms and by text and phone. I hope you enjoy this little chat and I want to wish all of you Awesome One's, from all over the world, good health to you and your loved ones and a reminder that this too shall pass - Heather

Middle aged neck: hurt during sleep

It finally happened, at age 52 I actually managed to hurt my neck while sleeping. Unfortunately, this is not too rare for those of us over 50. But what do we do about it? In this video, I take you through a basic warm up of the neck, range of motion, and postural corrections.

Breathing: Are you doing it right?

Should we pay attention to how we are breathing? Yes, and I’m going to give you 20,000 reasons why we should. On average, we breath between 17,000 -20,000 times per day. The muscles we use to accomplish this task play a critical role in neck, shoulder, and upper back tightness and pain.

Our main breathing muscle is the respiratory diaphragm (belly breathing) which is built to handle the bulk of the breathing work, day after day. The accessory muscles should only come in when we need the extra oxygen, for example, with exercise. These accessory muscles are located in the neck, shoulder, upper back and rib cage.

Belly breathing (or breathing as we should with our respiratory diaphragm) tends to shift the nervous system in to “parasympathetic tone” often referred to as “rest and digest”. Parasympathetic tone is where our body functions best, everything from digestion to muscle tone and tightness, and lower blood pressures.

However, chest breathing (with the accessory muscles) tends to shift our nervous system in to “sympathetic tone”, the famous “fight or flight”. The human body was never designed to function long-term in sympathetic tone. As many of us in our daily, always connected, stressful lives, have noticed, we have become habitual chest breathers as the “normal” breathing pattern. This tends to increase muscles tension that can lead to pain, negatively effects digestion and blood pressure, and can cause sleep cycle disturbances.

If there is one simple suggestion I can make to have global, systemic effects on your overall well-being, it would be to check your breathing pattern and include daily, diaphragmatic breathing. Your body will thank you!

Older adult seated arm strengthening exercises

Strength can improve at any age so it is imperative that we work on upper body strengthening exercises 2-3 times per week. Older adults are particularly vulnerable to sarcopenia or muscle softening as they become older. This makes activities of daily living more difficult and could lead to a loss of independence. Learn how to do basic upper extremity strengthening exercises at home without much equipment. Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks for watching,

Check this FIRST for neck & arm pain

The scalene muscle group is found along the lateral and anterior part of your neck. If you have any trigger points (tender spots) in those muscles, it can cause soreness and pain in your neck, shoulder, upper back, and in to your arm. Check this area first for any trigger points and work them out, see if that has a positive effect on your symptoms.

My # 1 lower back exercise: strengthen your multifidus

What is my #1 exercise for lower back pain? The Bird Dog alternating arm and leg exercise is my top choice for its ability to work the multifidus muscle of the lower back. Did you know we have 3 layers of back muscles, each with a specific function? The multifidus muscle actually turns to a fat like substance in those individuals with chronic lower back pain. Learn different ways to strength your back, even if you can't get down on the floor.

Standing Pilates for Seniors- 30 minutes of exercise to Increase Strength, Flexibility & Confidence

This is the follow up to my very popular Standing pilates for Seniors and is a progression of the exercises and the challenges. I've added stretches to help increase your flexibility and new and different balance work to increase your strength and confidence. If you haven't tried the previous Standing Pilates for Seniors I want to encourage you to do that first as this one will be more challenging for the body.

I have taught all these exercises twice weekly to my Senior pilates clients in London whose age range is from 60- 83. You can be younger or older and do this workout, there is something in it for everybody, in fact I have some regular clients in their 40's and 50's who really enjoy the style of these classes so the word 'Senior' is meant as a guide to the suitability of the exercises and the intensity of the movements. The exercises I have put together for this workout are to ease the general aches & pains in the joints and spine that come with age. I have also added stretches to increase flexibility and range of movement in the joints. There are exercises to help combat loss of strength, coordination and balance that also comes with age, but -and this is important- It doesn't have to be that way! Doing these exercises regularly will improve strength, flexibility , coordination and I recommend you build up to doing this workout at least two to three times a week. Take your time and do what you can, if anything is too challenging for you right now, don't worry, just rest and come back and try again when you're ready. Take care of yourselves.

Standing Pilates for Seniors- 30 minutes of exercise to Improve Strength & Build Confidence

I've created this workout based on a request from an older viewer who said 'could you do something for us older people who are getting a bit stiff and achy'. So this is a Senior pilates standing workout for the 60+ age group. I've taught these exercises twice weekly to my Senior clients in London, they are ages 60- 83. What I have done is put together some exercises for the general aches & pains in the joints and spine that come with age. As well as some other exercises to help combat loss of strength, coordination and balance that also comes with age, but -and this is important- It doesn't have to be that way! Doing these exercises regularly will improve all these things so I am recommending you build up to doing this workout at least twice a week. Take your time and do what you can, if anything is too challenging for you right now, don't worry, just rest and come back and try again when you're ready. Take care of yourselves.

Older adult balance exercises, it could save your life

30 million older adults (over 65 years old) fall every year in the US. Some sustain only minor injuries, but for others, it can be severe or even life threatening. Our system of balance needs to be trained, just like strength or flexibility, but many still do not include balance exercises in their daily routine. In this video, I take the viewer from very easy exercises to more advanced versions to help you find the right exercise. Please let me know if you have any questions,
