The new Power Performance Blog will be a bi-monthly series aimed at bridging the gap from injury management/prevention to rehabilitation and increased performance.

The blog will be written by Dr. Adam Robinson, a former Strength and Conditioning Coach who went on to earn his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree as well as a Master Degree in Sports Medicine. Having spent extensive time developing athletes in the weight room, as well as diagnosing and treating their injuries in a clinical setting he has a unique skillset of understanding what is required in both areas.

When it comes to improving physical performance, there are few principles to abide by and many methods to achieve those principles, in other words “there is more than one way to skin a cat”. Each blog will cover a small amount of theory, and then actionable advice that has worked for thousands how to apply said theory to improve your life right away. Dr. Robinson’s goal is to provide easy to digest info that anyone can use to hit the ground running.

The content in the upcoming blogs will not be solely for athletes, the similarity between athletic movements and every day movements cannot be overlooked, consider:

– Overhand throwing VS reaching upwards to a shelf

– Squatting with a bar on your back VS standing up from a chair

– Deadlifting a bar VS picking up your kids

The movement qualities are the same to complete the given task. Dr. Robinson’s view is that we are all athletes on some level, and learning how to take care of yourself is one of the most impactful things you can do, in the long and short term.  If there is a specific topic you would like him to expand upon in the blog, send an email to drrobinson@powerhealthchinook.ca.
