Episode Info: The basics of mobility often go unnoticed until nagging pain and discomfort arise. Musculoskeletal pain is a very common complaint of many patients. Rather than treating that pain with medication, what if a simple mobility technique could fix the mechanics that caused it? Dr. Kelly Starrett has revolutionized the way we assess and treat common aches and pains by developing a program called The Ready State. His years of working with elite, professional athletes gives him a unique perspective on how to deal with common everyday musculoskeletal issues. In this episode, Dr. Starrett lays out a simple plan that clinicians can use every day to assess and treat their patients with pain. He also discusses some strategies for those with desk-based jobs trying to survive the modern workplace and outlines the basics of good posture. “Pain is the body’s request for change.” – Dr. Kelly Starrett Today on The Lab Report: 2:50 Meet Dr. Kelly Starrett and get introduced to the idea of mobility 8:30 Kelly’s experience with functional medicine 11:00 Adequate vs. Optimal 15:20 What is a supple leopard? 18:50 Prescribing mobility – the movement map 26:25 Deskbound and strategies for the workplace 32:40 Posture and the skill of standing 37:20 The Ready State Additional Resources: The Ready State Becoming a Supple Leopard Deskbound: Standing Up to a Sitting World Ready to Run: Unlocking Your Potential to Run Naturally Waterman 2.0 Muscles and Meridians Stand Up Kids Subscribe, Rate, & Review The Lab Report Thanks for tuning in to this week’s episode of The Lab Report, presented by Genova Diagnostics, with your hosts Michael Chapman and Patti Devers.
