“Think about the brain like a muscle. The more you’re working out, the bigger and stronger your hippocampus and prefrontal cortex gets. ⠀
Why is that important? Because the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus are the two areas that are most susceptible to neurodegenerative diseases and normal cognitive decline in aging. So with increased exercise over your lifetime,you’re not going to cure dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, but what you’re going to do is you’re going to create the strongest, biggest hippocampus and prefrontal cortex so it takes longer for these diseases to actually have an effect.⠀
You can think of exercise, therefore, as a supercharged 401K for your brain, and it’s even better, because it’s free.⠀

These are common conditions, often seen in the athletic arena.
When the focus is limited to the site of pain, causation is often overlooked.
In the “Squat” illustration, one can see the difference between ‘western’ vs ‘asian’ -(full)- feet squat position.
When the calf muscles are too tight, one isn’t able to plant the feet flat on the surface. Lack of R.O.M. in the ankles will also be a contributing factor. Subsequently there will be an overload on the plantar structures, resulting in inflammation\pain.
In order to address this in the short run, I advice patients to purchase a set of insoles and cut out a circle, right where the discomfort\pain is experienced. In this way the surrounding tissue will absorb the pressure and the inflammation will get a ‘brake’.
In the long run the shortened calf muscles will have to be addressed by means of Deep Tissue Mobilization, Stretching; Along with Joint Mobilization of the ankle joints. At home, using a frozen water-bottle to roll under the bottom of the foot will be helpful. Do this about 10-15 minutes at the time, 2-3 times/daily.
We have been waiting on this set for a while.
Just in are a couple of Giro Vanquish MIPS helmets.
All helmets come with a visor that can be flipped up when not needed.
Plenty vents front and rear.
Both of these are mediums.
