    Mark Salamon - From Mechanical Engineer to Physical Therapist

    59:54

    There are two types of people who go to physical therapy: those who LOVE to be active and might overdo it which results in an injury and those who are not active but become injured as the result of some sort of trauma. The goal of a physical therapist is to help a patient return to optimal function as quickly as possible. Since many people are in pain when seeing a physical therapist it can be a challenge to engage them and help them learn how to use exercise to heal the pain. Mark Salamon is a physical therapist who uses humor to help put his patients at ease. Mark wrote a book, Does it Hurt When I Do This?: An Irreverent Guide to Understanding Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation which uses humor to help the reader learn more about their body and how to keep it pain-free. On this episode of All About Fitness, Mark shares how we went from studying mechanical engineering to the human body and how that relates to one another; in addition he offers his insights on how you should workout and which exercises to avoid so that you can enjoy your favorite activities while remaining injury-free.

    Sue Hitzmann - Self-care for Your Muscles

    1:07:06

    Have you ever felt stiff or sore for no reason? Yes, you may exercise, lift weights, get your heart-rate up and push yourself during hard, high-intensity workouts, but when was the last time that you did anything specific for your fascia and connective tissue? There are two types of muscle tissue, the contractile component that generates force and the elastic element that transmits the force around the body; it's this second type of tissue that is often overlooked with many traditional fitness programs. When your connective tissues don't function properly, it can change how your entire body functions which can result in long-term, nagging injuries. Sue Hitzmann is a manual therapist who created the MELT Method to reduce the amount of stress that accumulates in your muscles and soft-tissues during exercise so that you can get the results that you want from your workouts. Recorded LIVE at a fitness education event for the first time since 2019!!! - Sue provides insights on how our connective tissue is different than muscle and shares why it is so important to focus on self-care for your connective tissue so that you can achieve optimal health through movement. Learn all about how your body is designed to move on this episode of All About Fitness. In 2001, Sue Hitzmann was inspired to create “homework” for her clients, which led to the development of the MELT Method – the first-ever form of Hands-off Bodywork®. Now with her bestselling book and the products Sue personally designed, anyone, anywhere, can take steps to restore whole-body efficiency and lead a healthier, more active life. Sue has appeared on the Dr. Oz Show, Nightline, The Rachael Ray Show, Good Morning America, andLive! with Regis and Kelly, and MELT has been featured in publications such as SELF, More, Prevention, and the New York Times. She has empowered tens of thousands of people to live healthy, pain-free lives and has trained over a thousand instructors to share the secrets to pain-free living.
