Alex Simone (https://twitter.com/SimoneBaseball) shows us some great advanced hip openers for athletes to use to prep for training. When getting your hips and body ready for training or competition we need to consider which movements our sport uses and how we can mimic those movements as part of our prep work.
Baseball, football, hockey and many other athletes will benefit from this type of prep work both on the day of competition and as an addition to their daily routine.

Facet syndrome is caused by an irritation of the articular facets at the level of the spine. This progressive condition is often associated with a sensation of pain and generally affects the quantity and quality of movement possible.
The spine is made up of several vertebrae, intervertebral discs, ligaments, nerves and many muscles. The facet joints are small joints, covered with cartilage, that connect the vertebrae together.
Facet syndrome most often affects the lumbar or cervical region and usually happens as a result of structural changes that occur in the spine with age. Facet syndrome can be caused by inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis, or following a spinal trauma, such as a car accident or a fall.
Treatment of Facet Syndrome consists of Class IV Laser Therapy, management of any biomechanics stresses in the area and exercise rehabilitation to address any weaknesses that can be putting undue stress on the area.
