    Default hard time getting my glut medius to kick in can anyone help

    Hello, omranger:

    Just curious: do you have any history of injuries to your left ankle?

    I remember having a conversation with Zachariah Salazar (Level 5 Z-Health Trainer) about gluteus medius inhibition and ankle sprains.

    The relationship goes something like this: ankle injury-->joints near the cuboid (bone) become bound-up-->this causes inhibition to same-side gluteus medius-->this can create diminished movement in the opposite-side shoulder.

    At any rate, I am not a Z-Trainer, and perhaps my recollection of a conversation could be a tad "fuzzy." So, find a Z-Health Personality in your bailiwick. Z works, by golly!

    Regards,
    Peter.

    Default hard time getting my glut medius to kick in can anyone help

    This is EXACTLY what happened to me - blew my L ankle out at the end of HS. Four years later, I was having my right shoulder scoped. Then my right foot started to hurt - cat scan shows cuboid is starting to deteriorate (victim of years of long and triple jump). Well guess what, my right GM goes into complete meltdown, and I'm talking COMPLETE.....I could not walk normally and sometimes not at all.

    Besides doing all the Z stuff, step 1 for me was strengthening the GM (clam shells, etc.) then tying it in with functional patterns under the care of an FMS-certed physical therapist. My biggest obstacle is that the right foot is arthritic.

    Default Right on, Peter!

    Omranger: do the outside toe pulls from Z Health R Phase. This fix may sound too simple, but I bet it would help. If you don't experience any improvements, then, as Peter said, find a "Z-Health Personality" to work with you.

    Send good thoughts to your cuboid bone and its surrounding joints!Z Health
