Video journalist and sportscaster Ian Furlong explains how he and a team of medical doctors at the University of Sydney have created a method that involves pulling back on the pressure and controlling it through a series of down-arrow techniques.
“Downward arrows” are an effective way of getting pressure back in your system.
But, the problem is, it takes some practice.
“It’s very, very difficult to do, to really, really get that flow back,” he said.
I was really excited to get the team together.
I thought, we’re going to make this something that’s going to work.
I had never done it before and we got it down.
And that’s when I realised the importance of the physical skill.
But not all doctors have the same skills and experience.
So Dr Andrew Crouch, who specialises in sports science and rehabilitation at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, said it was vital that they had a similar background.
The first step was to develop a system that would be easier to do by experienced practitioners.
“We thought that it would be a challenge to develop it, but once we had that, we were able to do it pretty easily,” he told ABC News Breakfast.
This is a basic downward arrow technique.
You pull back on it as you lower the pressure to get more control.
You also have to know when to lower it and when to raise it.
Dr AndrewCrouch says it’s important to use the downward arrow method when lowering pressure.
In the video, Dr Crouch explains the basics of this technique, including when to use it and how to do so.
Dr Crouch says the downward arrows work best if done quickly.
You can then try different techniques, such as pulling back and lowering the pressure as you’re down.
He says that the downward-arrow technique is a very effective technique for athletes with low levels of performance, but can be challenging to develop for other people.
It’s a technique that will help people with poor performances.
So, it’s a good thing for people who have low levels, like me, to have a basic technique that can help them.
We are now looking to see if it can be used in more cases to control high-level sports performance, such the Olympic and Paralympic games.
There are also a number of people in the medical profession who are keen to get involved.
Andrew Crouch has already had a few opportunities to learn the downward bow technique, but is keen to do more.
That’s why I’m working with the Royal Australian College of Surgeons and the Australian College for Sport and Exercise, to try to come up with a more advanced technique that we can implement in the sport we all love.
And, it should be interesting to see what the next generation of doctors do with it.
