Healthy Food Facts – Did You Know

Did you know?

A 2010 study in the Journal of Pain found that ginger can reduce exercise-induced muscle pain by up to 25% – so root out that fresh ginger and use it in your post work out meals! For recipes featuring ginger – email PressKitchen@LakeshoreSF.com

Also, here’s a great metabolism boosting ginger drink:

2 Ruby grapefruits – peeled and chunked (cold fruit is better tasting!)

1 tablespoon fresh ginger – peeled and grated

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Place all the ingredients in a blender and puree for a minute. Enjoy!

What is Your Core?

We always hear about “core strength” however what does this really mean? People often have the perception that your core is only made up of the abdominal muscles. It is actually the sturdy link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body. By working on pure rectus abdominis strength (sit ups, for example) you are not really working on core strength and could potentially even injure your spine. The core is composed of the gluteal, lumbar, abdominal, pelvic floor and scapular muscles. These muscles all work together to stabilize your body during movement. The muscles of your core often do not consciously work together, and therefore it is important to learn how to appropriately activate your core musculature. Bridging is a common core stabilization exercise that can be modified from very basic to advanced. It is necessary to have good core stability for exercising, daily activities, on-the-job tasks, and all athletic participation. If your core is not stabilizing properly it may lead to issues such as low back, hip and knee pain.

If you have any questions about your core stability, please contact us at Lakeshore Physical Therapy or visit our website to learn more about our services at www.lakeshore-pt.com.
