Now let me blow your mind because you wouldn't guess looking at her...
...she is 48 years young!
In the NPC Cali Championships, Camille went head to head against females in their 20's and 30's. Through her training, posing, and dieting, she beat them all! Her fellow competitors were shocked to find out her age because she looks fabulous for 48!
As you can see from the pictures, Camille is super lean! There is no body fat on her! When I perform chiropractic work and muscle therapy on her, I feel like I working on an anatomy chart because I can see every muscle striation in every single muscle! Yeah, she is ripped!
Camille got into figure competitions because she was looking for something new to challenge herself. She hasn't been competing long, but she has already made a huge splash in the game! Her next competition will be in Pittsburgh, PA, about 5 weeks from now. When, not if, she wins, she will earn her pro status!
Earning her pro card is the goal because she will get sponsored from companies and will be able to compete and travel as an endorsed athlete. It takes extreme discipline to make it to the pro level, but Camille is dedicated and driven. She has her eyes on the prize so intensely that you can feel it when she talks about it!
I know I am excited for her to earn her pro card because she deserves it! And after her Pittsburgh show, she can finally go have some pizza and beer with me! Hahahaha
Recently, a client came to me dealing with pain on the outside of their knee for a couple of months, which has progressively been getting worse. Professionally, they are a nurse which means long hours standing on hard hospital floors. After performing a thorough orthopedic and neurological exam to rule out red flags, we proceeded with the session.
During our session I did adjustments to the knee, ankle, foot, and hip. Then I did trigger point work to the muscles around the knee, along with scraping and Vibracussor therapy. The goal of the adjustments and extensive soft tissue work is to increase the range of motion in the joints, muscles, and fascia. If any of those are restricted, it can cause a decrease in range of motion along the leg. So it is important to address everything, since everything in the body is connected.
After our 30 minute session, the client had more range of motion in their knee, hip, and ankle. Restoring proper motion - through adjustments and muscle work - to the entire leg takes stress off the knee. They had no pain when they got off the table. They could even stand, walk, and squat with no pain, which was huge for the client.
Definitely had great results after one session. I typically get better results than most Bakersfield chiropractors because I take the time to work on them. Other chiropractors rush their patients in and out, with the average visit time of being 3-5 minutes and most do not do any soft tissue/muscle work. To me, that isn't quality or effective care. I give my clients 15, 30, and 60 minutes session options so they do not feel rushed and they receive excellent therapy.
Benefits of Adjustments
A chiropractic adjustment is a common therapeutic treatment for joint dysfunction that leads to muscle tightness and pain. An adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the joints that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally with the objective being to reduce joint dysfunction, increasing range of motion, reducing pain, and improving function.
Benefits of Scraping
Scraping is a soft tissue mobilization technique that helps to aid your body in healing from soft tissue injuries. A variety of tools in different shapes and sizes are used and “scraped” against the area of dysfunction in the muscle. This helps to break up the restrictions in your muscle and to reduce soft tissue muscle restrictions. Scraping can be beneficial to patients with scar tissue, fascia restrictions, strained muscles, localized swelling, decreased range of motion and more.
Benefits of Vibracussor Therapy
The Vibracussor is a vibration instrument that differs from usual massagers in that it uses a piston-like up-and-down movement rather than a back-and-forth movement. It creates comfortable waves of compression that travel through the tissues to the affected muscles and fascia, allowing the instrument to release fascial adhesions, relax tense muscles and increase circulation and lymph flow. It give me the option to vary the frequency of the percussion in order to target specific tissues and tissue depths.
If you or someone you know is dealing with knee pain, it never hurts to contact me to see if I can help.
