Socialize / Very interesting topic-blog. Nature vs Nurture
« on: April 13, 2011, 12:43:49 PM »
So, way off topic, but I can see some ways to apply it to traceurs.  Were we traceurs born with certain traits that set us up both physically and behaviorally towards parkour?  Here's the blog that started the thought process I found.  Looks like it'll be an interesting read and for all those geeks out there, I personally plan on following this guy's train of thought.

He's a fiction author/writer with some very cool concepts.

What does everyone think?

Colorado / Thought I should post this here as well
« on: May 20, 2009, 12:31:53 AM »
This is a direct copy/paste from the general discussions forum title "Shameless Announcement":

Hi all,

Rather than calling this a plug, I felt it would be more appropriate to title it an announcement as several of you have inquired over the last months.  For those of you unaware, I am a Doctor of Chiropractic, (as can be assumed by the "Chiro" in my name).  However, I am also a traceur--going on 6 years now.

I started my training in colorado with COPK, and left for medical school 4 years ago.  As should be obvious, I have a passion for Traceurs, and working with them.  Now that my clinic has officially opened, I thought I would throw up an announcement.

Also, There is a section in the website under "doctors" and "Dr. Kenneth Kao" for traceurs.  I will be writing articles as a resource for traceurs every once in a while when enough questions come up in the injuries forum which I've been moderating for a while now.

Let me know if any of you have any questions, I'll get back to you promptly if the answer isn't already on the website.  Thanks to Tyson Cecka, Brian Orosco, Mark Madeo, Jereme Sanders, Ryan Ford, Matt Marshall, and of course Mark Toorock for all the support through contributions or otherwise.

Parkour And Freerunning / Shameless Announcement

It is important to remember that this forum does NOT diagnose any condition.  It is pretty much impossible to give a complete and accurate diagnosis without:
1. seeing the patient or traceur,
2. doing tests to determine the condition,
3. being a doctor.

Any reply consisting of "I had that" or "It is this, because I have it", will be immediately bashed for:
1.  Not reading this thread
2.  Being wrong
3. Misdiagnosis and likely committing some form of malpractic, practicing medicine without a license.

10
Under no circumstances do we condone, or are impressed when:

1.  You are not adequately trained/conditioned for the drop as seen by the fact that you hurt yourself while doing it.
2.  You were or are showing off during your drop, or posting here about it to boost your ego.


The answer is uniformly---DO NOT TAKE DROPS.

Drops are defined roughly by your level of conditioning.  But in general you should never take a drop greater than the height of your body.  Some argue that even this is too much.

The last point:

Pain does NOT equal Injury.  Injury can occur without pain.  If you hurt yourself from a drop, likely you've done far more damage than you are aware of, and WILL suffer the consequences of the drop much earlier than you expect.  Consequences of drops may include:

Herniated discs
Paralysis
Fractures stable and unstable
Schmorl's nodes
Notochordal impressions
Neuritis, neurolgical compromise and losses
severe and chronic injuries/pain
Loss of sensory and motor functions
Concussions
Chronic headaches
Amnesia
Death
and worse.

Train Safe.  Be smart.

Parkour And Freerunning / Injuries and recovery, few questions
« on: February 11, 2006, 09:42:28 PM »
hey all,

most of you dont know me, but i was pretty active back in Colorado with demon and such, so he knows me.  Anyway, i have since left and moved to california to study chiropractic, and ive been learning some insane stuff, stuff that has really made a difference in my performance as a traceur.

haha, no, im not advertising, after all, im still in school and have like, 3 years left.  but man, ive been learning a lot, and have been honing my skills into the areas of compaction injuries, ankles, knees, making strong muscles and the like to support for landings.  Basically if you dont have the muscles around the joint neurologically functioning, often you wont be able to activate the muscle to its full extyent no matter how hard you try.  Therefore, it makes you EXTREMELY prone to injury around that joint.  You hurt that muscle through like the first strain/sprain you get, and if it isnt treated, your body often doesnt turn on that muslce cause it still thinks that its injured.

thats a summary of the stuff ive been learning, but ive been bouncing the idea of specializing my treatments and patient base towards a parkour base.  I was wondering how many people would actually consider coming to see me if i did take the effort and time to learn everything i could on how to treat a traceur.  I know what a traceur goes through, theier common injures, because i was into parkour  before i became a chiropractic student.  Anyway, our bodies go through a lot more than you might think, or even notice, and if not addressed, we may be doing some serious long term damage, much less not performing at our full potential.

anyway, let me know your thoughts, and let me know if this kind of thing is something that you think people in parkour would be interested n, and i can definately focus my efforts to learn to be a good pk doctor.
