Geek watch: iMuscle2 app

By in Blog with 0 Comments

Those of you visiting Brighton Bodyworks for a massage will, I hope, leave with some new learnings about the muscles targeted in your treatment. What do those muscles do and why might they have become tight/shortened? If you are rehabbing an injury or are experiencing persistent pain in a particular area, what can you do in between treatments to help long term recovery?

Fellow anatomy geeks among you may like to take a look at the following app: iMuscle2 (available on iTunes – and no, I’m not on the sales team!). This nifty little app enables you to identify each individual muscle, and illustrates exercises which will stretch and strengthen that muscle.

I incorporate passive stretches in to every single massage treatment, however, for active sports people or those with more seriously impaired movement I we can use more dynamic techniques such as Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). Both bring fantastic results – but more about that in another blog post.

For now, have a little geek out with the iMuscle2 app. And if you’re looking for a treatment or simply some advice, please do get in touch.
