We are all focused around injury reduction. We don’t accept the idea that football cannot be made safer.
The body is designed to transmit force through the bones – Do THAT properly, and your hamstring-tear problems go away.
SAN MATEO, Silicon Valley, CALIF – December 2, 2020 – Week-after-week, the NFL is losing numerous players and millions of dollars to injuries, most notably, the vexing hamstring tear. According to a study conducted in 2011 that looked at 10 years of NFL injury data, hamstring injuries occurred 172 times per season. Still, in 2020, the NFL reports that Recurrence of these injuries is a significant problem, in terms of time loss and financial impact to players and Clubs, with over 850 lower body soft tissue strains that occur across the league each year, with the majority of these injuries to the hamstring..
The National Football League finally had enough — The league has developed a funding program, inviting research proposals for the prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and return-to-play following injury to the hamstring muscle group.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says, “I believe the underpinning of our success, has been to get better data.” ”We work to get the right kind of data from our injuries.” “The game can be entertaining and safer at the same time.”
Chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sillis agrees — “We are all focused around injury reduction. We don’t accept the idea that football cannot be made safer.” This time the NFL is serious. $4 million dollars is on the table for the health — teams who have the answer to this costly problem. Now it’s “Game ON!”
Olympic sports therapist and posture expert, Aaron Parnell (aka “The Posture Genius”), believes the answer to hamstring tears lies in the secret of “Posture Optimization”. According to Parnell, “Many of these players are working out with the wrong approach to progress. While most measure improvement and readiness by speed and strength, the true metrics are Flexibility and Mobility. The body is designed to transmit force through the bones — Do THAT properly, and your hamstring-tear problems go away”. His trademarked Reposturing® therapy and posture-optimized, workouts shift the force of a contraction to the bones instead of the hamstrings.
Parnell originally developed Reposturing therapy for his pre-Olympics clients who sought relief from chronic pain or support for peak performance. This experience eventually led to his development of Posture Optimization as an entirely NEW Category of Science and Service. Parnell discovered that restoring flexibility to the muscles and fascia will relieve the tension that might otherwise tear a hamstring. After the Olympiad, he went on to coordinate Posture Optimized Massage Teams for the annual San Francisco Marathon in 2003, 2004, 2018, and 2019; the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in 2003 and 2004; as well as over fifty other sporting events.
Parnell and his team of Posture Optimization Specialists based in Silicon Valley, California submitted their pre-proposal with his solutions to the NFL for consideration. However, Parnell says “We HAVE a solution that is affordable, effective and non-invasive—Why should anybody wait for the NFL to solve this problem? There are players and teams everywhere who would benefit from this solution – NOW.”
