I'm nearly 37 and want to remain viable as an athlete. I'm looking to connect with some sort of practitioner in Toronto (physio, athletic therapist, whatever) who has a deep understanding of mobility, in particular hips and shoulders.
I've always been pretty inflexible, and assumed I couldn't really do much about it. I strength train intelligently with good form - mainly barbells, dumbells, and weighted dips/chinups - and take my time warming up before sports (mainly tennis)- lots of dynamic warm ups.
However, I think a lack of baseline flexibility is holding me back, in particular in my hips. For example, my TFL
appears to be very susceptible to injury.
I've tried a whole bunch of stretches, and yes I've explored Kelly Starrett
, but I have major difficulties finding a position where I can actually feel a nice healthy stretch.
I need someone who can spend some 1on1 time with me guiding me through some stretches and other mobility work. A bonus would be someone who understands the role of fascia
, and the proper use of therapy balls
TLDR, need a qualified geek with experience to help me improve my mobility/flexibility in downtown Toronto
