Hip Stretches

The "hip" is where the leg bone (femur) meets the pelvic bone.  So then, what is a "hip muscle?"  That would be any muscle that passes over the hip joint and therefore has the ability to influence movement at the hip joint... and that's actually quite a few muscles.  Since these muscles have a significant impact on the functioning of your back and legs, so many of our patients could benefit from regular stretching of the hip muscles.  The sciatic nerve passes through several of these muscles (the gluteal/piriformis group), so we often find that patients with pain down the leg benefit quickly from doing these stretches.

It doesn't take long -- only about 5.5 minutes if you do one from each group shown in the video below.  Hold each stretch at least 20 seconds, and do this at least once a day.  It's FREE, it's SAFE, and NO EQUIPMENT is needed!  Stop-in or e-mail me if you have any questions about these stretches.

Get Moving!

(Photo: babble.com)
Spring "weather" is so, so close! Yesterday, my son did his first college visit, and walking around the campus in the windy cold felt like some sort of hazing ritual... but then they fed us well, and all the parents seemed happy again!
1. If you looking to start exercising again and need a fairly easy way to "get moving," check-out this simple routine I posted on our website:
My Chiro's Easy Exercise to Get Started
It's free, it's quick, and you don't need any equipment. Use a kitchen timer, watch a clock, or use an interval timer app such as Impetus (Creating a custom program on this timer is easy, but if you're not sure what to do just e-mail me and I'll post a video of me creating a timer program on my phone). If you're putting off excercise because something's hurting, walk-in to any My Chiro and we'll check it out.

2. Need to "burn" fat this Spring? Check-out Muscle & Fitness Magazine's article "20 tips for torching fat this spring" posted on MSN's Healthy Living site. My personal favorite was #13, "add some guac." We absolutely LOVE guacamole at our house (that is, my wife and I do... avocado was among our sons' first solid foods, but they both now strongly deny having liked anything "green"). Click here for some guacamole tips from Chef Rick Bayless.
(Puppy Chiropractor?  From link below.)

3. I don't usually say out-loud "Aaaawwww" to photos of cute puppies or kittens... but that's exactly what I said when I looked at "22 Photos That Prove Why Babies Need Pets." Now, I don't believe that the author's claim of proof was necessarily substantiated, but the photos are really cute. Number 21 is clearly my favorite, and I'm sure you'll see why:

Schedule online now


For as long as I can remember, I've always liked helping make people feel better.  So, I knew that being a massage therapist was the exact right fit for me.  I love being able to help someone relax after a long day at work, or being able to alleviate pain that has been bothering someone for a while.

I'm a people pleaser, so whenever I give a massage I give it my all.  I want my clients to feel like they are walking on "cloud nine" by the time their massage is thru.  I know that with being a massage therapist I have truly found my calling and I want to share with my clients.

I graduated from Capri in April of 2013.  I specialize in relaxation and therapeutic massage.  I can do some deep tissue.  I'm very flexible with my pressure.  Are you looking for relaxation or deep pressure?  I can give the exact pressure you are looking for!  Just schedule an appointment with me and I promise you won't regret it.  I'm looking forward to working with you!

Cassy O'Shogay, L.M.T.
