    Diane Lee: May the Floor's Force Be With You!

    in Health

    On the next Pelvic Messenger, Diane Lee will discuss the forces that affect the pelvic floor and how to maintain pelvic floor health!


    Diane Lee has been practicing physical therapy for almost 40 years, and she is the owner and senior Therapist at Diane Lee and Associates.  Diane is a member of the Canadian Physiotherapist Association since 1976, and she is a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy (FCAMPT) since 1981.  In addition, she created the Com-pressor, a unique, patented sacroiliac support belt as well as the newly released Baby Belly Belt, a specialized pelvic support with broader applications


     


    Diane is internationally recognized as an expert in the field of thoracic, lumbar, sacroiliac, and pelvic disability and pain.  The fourth and latest edition of her popular book, The Pelvic Girdle, serves as a crucial guide for many practitioners.  The theory behind The Integrated Systems Model for Disability & Pain, an approach co-developed with L-J Lee, is an evidence based whole body/person approach to help optimize function and performance.  This approach considers regional alignment, biomechanics and control during meaningful task analysis and determines something called the ‘primary driver’ when there are multiple sites failing to transfer load well during the task being analysed.  The primary driver is the area of the body that when treated will have the biggest impact on function and performance of the rest of the body.  Diane treats, teaches, writes, and creates.  Her enormous contributions to the world of pelvic floor physical therapy are recognized and appreciated.

    Marine Staff Sergeant Thomas Charles Linville (Retired) - Climbing Mt. Everest

    in Spirituality

    Marine Staff Sergeant Thomas Charles Linville (Charlie) enlisted in the Marine Corps 2006, and shortly hereafter married his high school sweetheart Mandi. They have two daughters.


    Charlie's served multiple tours in both Iraq and Afganistan. It was in the latter, while serving as an Ordinance Disposal Technician - he and his team rendered safe multiple IED’s, disposed of explosives both “homemade” and conventional ammunition - that Charlie was struck by a tertiary device. The explosion inflicted multiple injuries on him, some visible others not. He suffered fractures to his right foot which resulted in an inevitable amputation below the knee. In addition, Charlie suffered the amputations of his right ring and middle fingers. In addition, the blast caused a severe spinal injury at the L4, L5 and S1, which caused radiculopathy in his left leg impairing his mobility, and moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI).


    Charlie’s injuries have impaired him but he is determined to return to full functionality. Despite his injuries and debilitating pain, he has volunteered his time with the Armed Services YMCA building houses with Habitat for Humanity and volunteering with Feed America. He has also volunteered with Lives of Promise and Semper Fi Fund. He is an advocate for other wounded warriors, a spokesperson for many of the non-profits that supported him during healing, and an inspiring community leader. He is medically retired from active duty as an EOD Tech and has turned his focus on regaining function in his back as well as improved mobility. Currently he is training rigorously to climb Mount Everest in the spring of 2014. Following his successful summit, Charlie plans to attend Boise State University through the Wyakin Warrior Foundation. He will seek a degree in Engineering.

    Diamond Dallas Page and DDP Yoga - Jan 21,2013

    in Fitness

    Superstar wrestler-turned-fitness expert Diamond Dallas Page has always done things his own way, never taking “no” for an answer. He began his professional wrestling career at the “mature” age of 35 and quickly shot through the ranks, reaching superstar status by 40. Dallas' career was skyrocketing- titles, fame, and multi-million dollar endorsement deals; his world was a windfall of success. That is, until he was sidelined by a crippling and career-threatening injury: ruptured L4 and L5 discs. Three medical specialists told him he would never wrestle again but desperate to return to health, he eventually hit the yoga mat, where he was blown away by the discipline's mind and body benefits. Soon Dallas put his own spin on traditional yoga, supercharging it to create a heart-pumping workout—a total fitness solution without any joint impact.In less than 3 months Dallas was back in the ring. With his new breed of results-oriented yoga, fusing flexibility core strength conditioning and resistance training with cardio, Dallas did the impossible: he not only bounced back from his injury but also sculpted himself into the best shape of his life. At the age of 43, Dallas was back in top athletic form and that same year earned the Heavyweight Champion title. Now, with DDP Yoga, he is helping thousands of ordinary people, including those with disabilities, to get fit with DDP Yoga. Dallas' mission is to help people from all walks of life, providing the tools and work ethic that can turn the “impossible” into reality. Join co-hosts IFBB Figure Pro Jami DeBernard and Certified Personal Trainer Brian Jagger as they talk to Diamond Dallas page (DDP) about his career, his injury, his rehabilitation, and what he's doing now to help other achivee a fit body.

I was inside Afghanistan with the mujahideen during the Soviet occupation, covering apartheid in South Africa, drug wars South America, then I was put in charge of covering all of Asia.
