So many of us have an imbalance in the pelvis that affects everything above and below. By evening out the rotation in the legs, we can stabilize the pelvis better and feel stronger when we walk. Since walking is something that we do all the time, I thought this exercise was a great one to share with you this month. It's best to observe your gait (walking) first, then do the exercise to accurately compare and contrast.
There's a lot that's misunderstood about the feet and what's best for them. Shoe manufacturers have shifted to more support and also more specific support to correct your imbalances. That's helpful in a way, but your body was designed to support itself and if it's "fixed" by a shoe instead of by your body, then you're not really getting to the root of the problem. That will keep you spending more money in the long run instead of working with your body and listening when it sends a signal of pain that something's not working the way it should.
I often get asked for my opinion on a specific gadget or tool to fix an issue in the spine. People will come to me with their MRI results afraid that surgery and cortisone shots are their only options.
My work is all about finding the connections in the body. It's an easy way to get to the root of whatever issues or pain we have. This month's video blog is about just that.
Some people wonder which is more important, strength or flexibility. I hear arguments in support of both, so I'm talking about my thoughts on the subject along with a couple of exercises to support the wrists & spine because most of us spend way too much time sitting at desk. This month's video blog is under 8 minutes, have a listen and share you thoughts!
I know you have all heard that your pelvic floor muscles are important, but do you know why? These muscles support your organs, give you control over bladder and bowel, help support the spine, and are important to sexual function. Did you also know that both men and women have a pelvic floor? There has been a lot of talk about why women need to strengthen their pelvic floor during pregnancy and such, but men have these same muscles! Sign up for the workshop to learn more!
