00:00:00--> 00:00:06

Okay, so we've got record. And we've talked about my tight hamstrings then we talk about but specifically

00:00:08--> 00:00:31

we talked about the effect on the lumbar spine, right? Yeah, record for human for Yeah. And fullsuit We found that the least amount of stress on the lumbar spine incision, what about the the actual positioning of sujood? Let me let me demonstrate here. Because we know that you're not supposed to the province that Eliassen forbade a number of positions in sujood. So he forbade for example.

00:00:32--> 00:00:41

Well, number one he said to pray like you see me pray. So he didn't he didn't make some dude like this, right? He didn't make scheduled like this, like a push up, right?

00:00:42--> 00:01:28

It was here like, Yeah, normally, and the note has to touch the floor. Yes. You know why now? Because think about it. I want you just to put your forehead without your nose. Oh, this is like straining on the on the on the neck here. The cervical region. Yeah, right. But when you put your notes touching the floor, guess what? This is like straightening this area here. And this is the normal position for the neck. Okay, so your neck did not get strained by overdoing it. So that was the right way of making the suit with the face. Or you know, touch the ground with the forehead and the news. How fifth muster province alias and have been for him to keep record for an hour. Keep

00:01:28--> 00:01:37

scheduled for an hour. I gotta I gotta share something that was Sam said with Sam said that when I see the Prophet, I'm gonna give him a bandaid because he was cut.

00:01:38--> 00:02:26

Okay, look. So my question is this. Like, eventually, I'm imagining what are the muscle groups that are working here right now. For for which part of your body? For all of it for all of it, you have the neck muscle here. Okay, you have your back muscle here. Okay, and you have your arm here. This is the elbow flexion here. And you will also this is the pectoralis muscle here. And you have also your knee your lower your lower the back muscles here. Okay, and you have your ankle dorsi flexors here. So, almost all of your muscles are working in this position, which would mean they would get fatigued after a while. Yes, they got what fatigued. Because fatigue

00:02:27--> 00:03:16

after a long time of sujood it's not really the fatigue as much as like you need to get up because you have too much blood going into your for everything. That's why would get heavy. Yeah, you feel like like your head gets heavy. Yes. Okay. Subhanallah, there are two arteries coming from the neck, going to the brain from the carotid arteries going to form the circle of Willis, which is a circulation in the brain itself. Okay. And that position is a unique position for preventing people from getting Alzheimer because you have enough, or you have a good enrichment of the blood supply to the brain. So your brain is really really active. You know, some people when they do that exercise,

00:03:16--> 00:03:24

when they put their head on the floor and raise their hands. Yeah. You know, why do you do that? What? Because?

00:03:26--> 00:04:10

So essentially, I mean, I'm not typically very good at it, but typically, you could do this. Yeah, right. Yeah, yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So tripod. Yeah. Why do you do that? No, no, no, I supply coming to the brain, you know, and that really is good in itself, because it helps people to avoid something like Alzheimer's, you know, and it really helps, you know, for your, for your brain circulation. Okay. That's very important. Of course, you know, in addition to that, we mentioned about the position of the of sujood on the lower back, right, it really helps to reduce the amount of stress going over your lumbar spine. Yes, right. So I wonder spine right now is very, one thing

00:04:10--> 00:04:26

that I'm noticing this looks like a position of a squat. Which one like you wouldn't you have your head down, right? This looks like you had a squat position, and you're holding the barbell on your back. But you know, gravity is in the wrong direction. But if you were to stand up on his feet, it would be the same thing you have.

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

Do you know something else more you in this position, and you breathe in and out? Guess what? The lungs has loops, right? When we move our body, the loops of the lungs based on the position, it moves. So what that mean, it means that your lungs moves with your thoracic cage, right? And guess what? Subhanallah we use this for treatment people with respiratory disorder, meaning if somebody has a respiratory disorder and have some like soft

00:05:00--> 00:05:29

have inflammation or sputum, Okay, guess what, we change the provisions change the position food, the lungs can, the loops of the lungs can move based on the position and that helps to, you know, release. You know the sputum, so you can people can just get rid of it. So, all movement in the phala it helps really your, your body. In addition to that, there is a, a general effect of Salah in general,

00:05:30--> 00:05:35

the movement itself going up and down. It prevents something called

00:05:36--> 00:06:22

orthostatic hypotension. Okay. People have SubhanAllah. When they sit, they are fine. When they stand up the blood pressure drop. Yeah. So we can use this as a training to avoid the orthostatic hypotension. Is this also same reason why some people they get up too quickly after they've been sitting on the couch watching TV for them to move slowly. But this is for people who have already Okay, so like normal people? Yeah. Especially if you are if people are elderly. Yeah, we advise them of course to move slower, right to pay attention to the balance, right? Because most people default when they change, positioning. Oh, you know, yeah. So the last thing I want to talk about is

00:06:23--> 00:07:13

why Allah Tala ordered us and taught us when we, when we at the end of the of the further we go to the right as salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah and we go to the left, why we don't go up or down or sideways. Subhanallah This is really very interesting. Because, you know, when when we live our life, we have to have what's called the field of vision, our field of vision is what is this way and this way, nobody always like in the normal daily activities look up, or look down, we always look to the sides, right, naturally. So imagine you do this as a training, five times obligatory, you rotate your head to the site, and you rotate your head to the other side, this is a good training to

00:07:13--> 00:07:31

prevent, you know, your cervical, you know, any, like kind of arthritis in the in the neck, because you have a good mobility, okay. And also, it helps to maintain your field of vision. So this is also something really, we have probably don't do this.

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

Fascinating is what are warm ups in jujitsu.

00:07:36--> 00:07:55

We lay on the ground, with our backs, and basically just turn our heads to side to side, up and down, left and right. But like, it's interesting, because if you haven't done your recovery work, from a previous training day in jujitsu, you're like, I can't turn my head all the way.

00:07:56--> 00:08:13

And that's when you know, you have free free exercise. I love how and has given how important is it for you to be still for and how long should you be still for? Because we know the progress the lies? And I've said this is no good.

00:08:14--> 00:08:53

Going into Korea that fast? Oh, that fast? Yeah. Right. So you have to have stillness. It doesn't have to be long. But I'm wondering from a physical therapy standpoint, is there a particular time limit that you would put when you're giving advice to your clients for record for for these positions in general is there like usually, usually stretching we recommend stretching for like 30 seconds? Okay, stretching. And if you calculate 30 seconds, is like when you say sub 100 below the sub 100 or below, that's going to be five seconds. Yeah, but up to 30 seconds is stretching is good. Okay. Yeah. And you really need to work on your stretching on more.

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

Like what?

00:08:58--> 00:09:36

You've been doing a little bit of your knees, when you do the record, scene, you bending a little bit. No unit has to be back like that straight. I would if I could, we're gonna we're gonna work on your Marsala. I was recommending some like if you have tight hamstrings, right? So a simple exercise if you want to capture the video, alright, so generally, a lot of times when people will try to touch on the floor, they might be here, right? Or they might be here. So one exercise is that okay? Go stretch your feet a little bit or even that or bend your legs, get to the thing or grab your toes. And then just undo Yeah, and hold it and hold it below. Yeah, because when you hold it, it

00:09:36--> 00:09:46

means you are doing the stretching. But if you just go up and down that's a range of motion. Right? So when you do this, yeah. In the best I used to even reach like

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

one thing though, even if you're like straight Victor. Look at me.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

Mashallah, Mashallah. I mean, even for me, it's a little bit challenging. That longer links to

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

But generally, you should be able to grab your toes. But a lot of times if it does tight, the idea of getting that blood circulating in there to create that was the medical term, the muscle dilatation Razzles dilation, yes, I'm learning new vocabulary here. So yeah, but basically, you know, when you when you activate something, right, that's a good exercise. And then you get up. Yeah. And then you'll find that you're getting more Yeah, your range of motion. And part of it is to maybe even repeat that a couple of times. So that you can further that, but it's not like you do it once. And you're done. Yeah. You have to repetition. Yeah. Every day, every day. It has to be like a

00:10:41--> 00:10:57

habit. You gotta move on, man. You got a habit is really hard. Don't use it. You lose it. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. So just like go ahead, Dr. Tata for being with us and sharing this valuable information.

00:10:58--> 00:11:06

really enlightening. And I'm probably going to have to listen to this two times three times over to kind of get the gist of everything. Such a novice in this, but

00:11:08--> 00:11:27

Dr. Clark, by the way, is one of the gems of Houston. And so if you're ever in Houston and you need physical therapy, you want to fix your record or figures to do it come stop by, can you? What's the name of the clinic called kinetic physical therapy? In North Kobayashi by clearly Korea, kinetic physical therapy for Zakouma. Thank you very much, doctor. Thank you.

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

Thank you
