OVERWHELMED WITH TRYING TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE?

proper body biomechanics

Then you’re not alone.

 

Like millions of people, you know all the benefits that come from getting fit and staying fit.

But you’re getting so many mixed messages on how to achieve your goals.

 

Walking – Yoga – Stretching – Pilates – Weights – Thera-bands….the list goes on

 

It’s overwhelming trying to figure out what your body needs and what’s going to help you feel better.

 

And I’m guessing you know how important this decision is.  

 

You don’t want to make pain worse, risk re-injury, or continue to stay in a rut that makes you feel like you’re never going to get out there and feel like yourself again.

 

Choosing the right program means: 

  • you’re not wasting your time on something that doesn’t work
  • you’re going to feel better faster
  • the frustration will melt away when you can focus in on one thing
  • you can relax knowing you’re not going to injure or hurt your body 

 

because you know you’re giving your body what it needs

Chances are you’ve probably been asking yourself “How long can I keep this up?”

I get it.

 

It’s frustrating wanting so much to feel better, wanting to be more active and get back to doing things you love to do.  

 

But fear and frustration are making it impossible.

 

And if you’re like a lot of my clients, you probably saw the changes to your mental health and your mood.  You might be a bit more snippy, less fun to be around, and perhaps, you’ve been hiding, saying no to invitations because you know you’re not your best self.

 

You’ve been trying to get better but instead, you’re actually feeling WORSE.

WHY YOUR BODY’S IN PAIN

Hit The PLAY BUTTON Below to See Why

She’s a runner, 

She’s out there Working Hard, 

but feeling anything BUT that Runner’s High

That’s because her body’s out of alignment.  

Watch the video again and see if you can spot these problems:

 

  • Her foot isn’t coming off the ground in a neutral position
  • Her knees are crossing the midline of her body
  • Her legs are rotated inward from the hips
  • The shoulder drops and the core rotates with every step

 

Forget about how much extra energy it takes to move like this.

 

Take a moment to consider how much strain is on each part of the body that’s out of alignment and the twisting of each joint.

 

Think about how hard all the other muscles and joints are working to cover for the weakness in the muscles that literally, aren’t pulling their weight.

 

And that’s why, at the end of a workout, instead of feeling awesome, you ask yourself:

“How much longer can I keep this up?”

HOW CAN I FEEL BETTER?

Simply….

by getting your body into alignment.

By improving your biomechanics.

By reducing the stress on your muscles and joints by allowing your body to relax in neutral postures.

How Do I Know If My Body's in Alignment?

Your Body Has One Goal

To Function – No Matter What

If you’ve ever sprained your ankle or hurt your knee you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Somehow you make it to the bathroom.

It’s not pretty – you’re limping, using support, and probably wincing in pain.

But your functioning.

That’s what the body was designed to do.

⇒  WHY IS THIS BAD?

The problem occurs when the body says to itself:

Hey, if I move like this I don’t feel the pain.

So the quickest and easiest way to avoid pain is to walk funny.

 

The long term effects of this change in gait doesn’t matter – it’s only about the immediate need to function.

 

You’ve developed compensations – the body’s amazing way to reduce using an area that’s hurt or injured and still allow you to function.

So as your body continues to function, it continues to use these maladaptive postures, these changes that it put in place to spare you the pain and keep you functional.

 

But at a cost.

Other muscles and joints have to help out to make up for the muscles that aren’t working and the joints that aren’t moving the way they used to.

Most people aren’t even aware of these compensations.

What they are aware of is the pain 

  • in their back 
  • or their knee
  • their sore hip 
  • and the inability – no matter what they try – to get rid of the pain and feel better.

Because that’s the goal isn’t it?

Feel good and move well. 

SO, if you don’t know how you’re compensating, how do you fix it?

WHERE TO START

The Body Alignment Screen is exactly what you need if:

You Need to Know How You Move

If you’re like most people with aches and pain, 

you KNOW that the proper stretches and exercises will help you feel better and move better.

 

But the million dollar question is…

what exercises are right for you?

 

The Body Alignment Screen gives you the answer.  And it’s not going to cost you a million dollars.

Each component of the Body Alignment Screen evaluates for risk factors that cause pain, muscle fatigue, decreased performance, and can lead to injuries.

 

Using the standards of Developmental Kinesiology and Functional Movement

when you sign up for your Body Alignment Screen you’ll learn:

 

  • how you’re moving
  • what’s tight and needs to be stretched
  • what’s weak and needs to be stronger
  • how all the parts of your body are working together
  • where you need help with sequencing movement

 

This gives your body the Foundation it needs for all your activities.

 

WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT

 

If you’re like most people, you can tell me where it hurts.  And you definitely know you’re not feeling your best  – fatigue, poor sleep, joint pain when you try to exercise

BUT…

you don’t know how to fix it

AND

you don’t want to waste any more of your precious time trying every type of online video or stretching book to see if magically one will work for your body.

THE FACTS

If you don’t know what’s wrong with your body, you can’t fix it.

And this is especially true with movement.

How you stand, how you move, how your compensate when asked to sit, reach, bend, stretch, all of these show me the factors that are causing you pain and holding you back from Feeling Better and Moving Better
