Active vs Passive flexibility gap graphic with The Chiro Co logo at the bottom

Active vs Passive Flexibility Gap

The active passive flexibility gap, and passive vs active stretching and flexibility. ๐Ÿ’ฅโฃ

I am always talking about this to my patients and students, however the greater the difference between your active and passive flexibility the higher your risk of injury. ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธโฃ

Over the next few weeks we will start to look at passive vs active stretching and flexibility. We will explore the benefits of active flexibility and some things in your stretching routine that may actually be hindering your flexibility progress, as well as potentially injuring you in the long term ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€โš•๏ธโฃ

If you want a flexibility program, have an injury or a niggle that you want checked, send us an email and our chiropractor will get back to you to schedule a consultation

Shoulder blades “down and back”?!

โ€œShoulders down and backโ€

This cueing needs to STOP when we are talking about loaded overhead movements. 

Yes you need to engage in all your overhead movements โœ”๏ธ . 

Yes you should NOT just hang there โœ”๏ธ . 

But do you need to pull your shoulder blades down and back and together when your arms are elevated all the way overhead? 

ABSOLUTELY NOT โŒ! 

โ€œStabilityโ€ of the shoulder in these movements is complex however, you could be doing more harm than good by pulling your shoulder blades together when your arm is loaded overhead. 

When you elevate your arms overhead, your arms move through approx 180 degrees.  Not all of this should come from your glenohumeral joint (your โ€œshoulderโ€). But rather in an approximate 1:2 ratio with your scapulothoracic joint (shoulder blade on your back) and your glenohumeral joint. I.e. when you lift your arm up, your shoulder blade should move (upwards rotation) approximately 60 degrees and your glenohumeral joint should move approximately 120 degrees (swipe for a visual thanks to Carvalho et. al). 

When you do not allow this upwards rotation, i.e when you bring your shoulder blades down and back together, you are forcing the movement predominantly into your glenohumeral joint. This can lead to shoulder pain and issues, commonly shoulder impingement, which I see a lot in pole dancers ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

This is general advice. If you have pain or shoulder issues, particularly during pole, please see a health professional > ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ
