Posing An Answer To Postural Problems

Injury, Posture and PREhabilitation
An EU wide study found that conditions such as back pain account for 49% of absences from work and 60% of permanent work incapacity. More and more of my work over the last couple of years has been dealing with clients suffering back pain, sciatica, hip or knee issues and problems with posture and mobility. So why are people suffering more with such conditions?
Well, there are many causes of pain such as contact injury, flexibility, muscle strength and even fashion! This unfortunately gives many people a reason to suggest there are just as many solutions or reasons as to why their solutions are not as effective as people would like. It does so happen that many of these problems can be avoided or fixed and therefore months off training, work or simply getting out and about to enjoy yourself does not need to occur.
Pain in the lower back is the main culprit for many people’s reasoning to come and see me and many of these clients are shocked to hear that my treatment of back pain has no direct involvement with the lower back. I was originally taught ‘if they have back pain it is because they have a weak back and therefore it must be strengthened’. This type of teaching was then followed by thousands of Personal Trainers doing lower back exercises with clients in pain. This type of practice has now led me to become a teacher of Biomechanics and actually educate Personal Trainers, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and the like that there are better methods. Methods that work, methods that work quicker and methods that keep the pain away longer.
I am a big believer in that our feet and the way we walk (our walking gait) hold many of the answers to people’s postural problems and injury history. Why do people keep getting the same injury over and over again? Why do people suffer with the same postural pain repeatedly?
