Episode 237: Heel Cord Love

    04/29/2011 | 12 Comments

      Hey MWodikons,

      Today’s mission is to have a really good heart to heart chat with your lower legs. Tight heel cords can cause problems up the entire athletic chain. You should think to yourself, “knee pain? Foot problems? Stretch my calves.” If you are an athlete that finds yourself in positions where your knees are coming forward (like oh, olympic lifting, playing field sports…) then you had better be obsessing over your ankle/calf mobility. If you have foot problems of any kind, chances are you also are missing some length in the back of your leg. Remember, treating dysfunctional/short tissues can help with your issues, but the real problems may be at the hip or further upstream. Where the rats get in, is not necessarily where they chew. But, you still have to deal with with they chew.
