6 Benefits of CBD Oil Massage with the Spa@IC
CBD Oil is most commonly known to help with pain inflammation, and anxiety, leading to it becoming one of the most popular ingredients in therapeutic oils and alternative medicines. So, what’s the difference between a CBD Oil Massage and a regular massage? The massage itself is just like any other massage but your therapist will focus on a target area that you specify and where the skin is the thinnest. This allows the oil to be absorbed into your blood stream as the massage therapist activates the area. Worried about getting that “high”? Don’t worry, our CBD Oil does not contain THC – the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Specifically, there are 6 additional benefits of CBD oil massage:

  • Helps your body relax
  • Helps with recovery
  • Releases tension
  • Stress relief
  • Pain management
  • Ease sore muscles

Try it and find out for yourself, and book your CBD Oil Massage with the Spa@IC by contacting ICSpa@LakeshoreSF.com

 

Wednesday Wine Down and Yoga at IC – Every Wednesday Afternoon!

What is Sciatica? Learn more with Lakeshore Physical Therapy

Sciatica is a SYMPTOM that describes pain along the path of the sciatic nerve. This could feel like tingling, numbness, burning, or shooting pain down the leg. The true cause of sciatica can be very different in each person ranging from a herniated disc, a muscle spasm of the piriformis, spinal stenosis, a sacroiliac rotation, or core instability. Having this problem properly diagnosed by a medical professional is important to adequately treat your symptoms and fix the CAUSE of your pain!

Check out our blog post this month for more information on sciatica at www.lakeshore-pt.com and our Instagram post @lakeshorephysicaltherapy for recommended exercises to alleviate your pain.  Lakeshore Physical Therapy is conveniently located in both Lakeshore Sport & Fitness clubs for care when you need us.

Make the Most of Side Stepping with Lakeshore Physical Therapy!

Weakness of the hip abductors is quite common and often present with hip impingement, iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome and chronic ankle sprains.  One popular hip abductor strengthening exercise is side stepping with a resistive band. It is important to note that muscle activity of the gluteus medius (gathered via electromyograph) is higher in the squat posture compared to the upright posture.  The muscle activity is also higher in the stance leg than the moving leg. 

When performing the exercise, try to squat and maintain the squat position while side stepping for the best glute workout.  View the full research article here:  https://www.jospt.org/doi/pdf/10.2519/jospt.2015.5888

Elbow Pain, Could the Shoulder be to Blame?

We see many people with lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow. Lateral epicondylitis is pain over the outside of the elbow where many of the forearm muscles attach. However, not just tennis players have tennis elbow. Anyone can develop it, and it is common in people who spend a lot of time at the computer or perform lots of gripping during their day.

 

Many people who come to us for lateral epicondylitis have unsuccessfully tried exercises on their own that focus on the wrist and elbow, but it is important to look at the whole arm. Most specifically, the muscles that control shoulder blade position should be considered, such as the lower trapezius and serratus anterior. These muscles are crucial when treating the elbow as the position of the whole arm is determined by the orientation of the shoulder blade.

 

For exercises to perform, look at Lakeshore Physical Therapy’s blog post on tennis elbow: http://lakeshore-pt.blogspot.com  or click on our Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/lakeshorephysicaltherapy/

 

Why Core Matters?

The musculature of your core, in a sense, is what connects your lower and upper body. Every step or motion you make essentially moves through your core or originates from it, whether it be picking up your child off the floor or swinging your racket at a tennis ball. Thus, a weak or strong core can affect the way you feel, move, or function.

 

Try these Core strengthening exercises for yourself!

  • Plank Variations
  • Reverse Crunches
  • Deadbugs
  • Bicycles: Seated or Lying
  • Supermans!

Children Must be Supervised

LSF is the best place around for kids and families!   We love to be the place for children to not only take part in our great programs, but also be a place for them to exercise their independence.  However, it is important to note that children under high school aged must be in a supervised program with LSF.  Club 48 (4th-8th Graders with the Club 48 Membership) are only allowed to be in the club alone during Club 48 hours.  All other children must be with a parent and supervised.  Please talk with your children about behavior and etiquette as to not disturb other members trying to enjoy their experience.

All Things Strings

 

Tip for Tennis Tuesday

When serving, for the toss, think in terms of release of the ball, rather than tossing the ball. This will limit the variable in the flight line of the toss.

 

The LSF Racquet Sports Department Welcomes Coach Max McDulin!

Max McDulin has been a tennis coach for over five years, and has played the game since he could walk. He started as a coach at Windemere Racquet & Swim Club in his hometown of Houston, Texas and then spent time as the Director of Tennis at New London Hills Swim, Tennis & Dive Club in Hamilton, Ohio, and most recently was a Tennis and Pickleball Pro at Allegheny Country Club in Pittsburgh.

Max believes in a positive and energetic learning environment, and brings both that positive attitude and high energy to the court every day. He played tennis at Ohio University where he studied Broadcast Journalism and Sports Administration.

“I’ve been a member of Lakeshore Sport & Fitness for over six months and applaud the desk, owner, staff, instructors and cleaning staff that welcome all members.  I sincerely appreciate the hands-on customized assistance each instructor gives to students during the class.  No matter what your level, Joanna, Melissa, Brendan, Tatiana, TonE and all the instructors, guide you according to your level of ability. This is the first place in over ten years of paying for health clubs where I feel there’s exercise formats for everyone with down-to-earth staff and instructors.  From barre class and weight training to yoga to pool to outdoor activities to wall climbing, there’s all types of exercise that fit your needs.  After six months of going to Lakeshore for just 3-days a week, I have a great new energy level.  I highly recommend Lakeshore Sport & Fitness!” – Laurie O.

Physical Therapy for Vertigo!
Vertigo is the sensation of spinning or that the room is moving around you. There are a number of conditions that can lead to vertigo; inner ear disorders, migraines, tumors, head injuries or stroke. In most cases, the cause of vertigo involves the inner ear, part of the vestibular system (your body’s balance system). It uses the organs of your inner ear to relate to your brain where your head and body are in space to keep your eyes focused and body stable.  One of the most common causes of vertigo is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is an inner ear disorder that produces short periods of spinning when your head is in a certain position. BPPV occurs when tiny crystals in your ear are dislodged and move into another part of the ear (semicircular canals) where they are not supposed to be. Physical therapy can be quite effective in treating BPPV.  The therapist will conduct a series of positional tests to determine which inner ear is the culprit and which of the six semicircular canals is involved.   Specific head motions or maneuvers to reposition the crystals within the inner ear are then performed to relieve the symptoms of vertigo. Oftentimes, patients experience relief after just one treatment.  Successful rehabilitation also includes balance exercises to help strengthen your vestibular system.

Lakeshore Sport & Fitness is fortunate to have the experienced physical therapists of Lakeshore Physical Therapy on site at both locations.  Click here for more information or to schedule an appointment:  www.lakeshore-pt.com

New Summer Camp Convenience: Express Drop Off

New this summer, we will be offering Express Drop Off as an option for families who would like to check in their campers curbside.  This service is offered daily from 8:45-9:05am.  Simply pull into the drive aisle in our main parking lot and proceed to the “Camp Lakeshore” sign.  From there, a counselor will greet you to escort your child into camp.  Please note that this service is not available for first day campers or those who need assistance checking in.  We encourage non camp families to use the main parking lot to avoid waiting in the Express Drop Off car procession.  For more information, please email LPCamp@LakeshoreSF.com.

A Note from Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy for Vertigo

Vertigo is the sensation of spinning or that the room is moving around you. There are a number of conditions that can lead to vertigo; inner ear disorders, migraines, tumors, head injuries or stroke. In most cases, the cause of vertigo involves the inner ear, part of the vestibular system (your body’s balance system). It uses the organs of your inner ear to relate to your brain where your head and body are in space to keep your eyes focused and body stable.  One of the most common causes of vertigo is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is an inner ear disorder that produces short periods of spinning when your head is in a certain position. BPPV occurs when tiny crystals in your ear are dislodged and move into another part of the ear (semicircular canals) where they are not supposed to be. Physical therapy can be quite effective in treating BPPV.  The therapist will conduct a series of positional tests to determine which inner ear is the culprit and which of the six semicircular canals is involved.   Specific head motions or maneuvers to reposition the crystals within the inner ear are then performed to relieve the symptoms of vertigo. Oftentimes, patients experience relief after just one treatment.  Successful rehabilitation also includes balance exercises to help strengthen your vestibular system.
