What’s wrong with this picture? (Besides the fact that you probably shouldn’t run with your dog on asphalt)
There’s been a lot of incongruency in the media as of late. This particular gal, with your head rotation to the right is going against the harmony of neurology and physiology. Let me explain…
This particular gal, with her rotated to the right is going against the way the nervous system is designed to work.
In a post in the last week or so (the massage cream one and incongruent movement) we talked about tonic neck responses. When the head is rotated to one side, that upper and lower extremity should extend while the contralateral side should flex. This poor gal is fighting her own neurology!
Also note that she really doesn’t have that much hip extension on the right and increases her lumbar lordosis to compensate. Gee whizz. You’d a thought they would have done better…
So much for the photo op : -)
