What causes back pain and why do so many people have it? This is a very broad question with no definite clear answer. Of course, you can go to the doctor and get X-rays and a MRI which could show some deviations, bulges, some varying degrees of curvature. But how did these things happen? How many of us used to get along just fine with no pain…most people say, I’m getting so old. Aging is not a cause of back pain…it’s just not! Because one is getting older does not mean you have to be weak, bent over of live in pain.
In my opinion most back pain is caused by the poor positions we place our body in on a daily basis over a long period of time. Research is continually showing that poor posture, sitting to much and not correcting certain movement patterns is the genesis of our back pain. A lot of this started back in our younger days and yes, as we age the continued stress we put our muscles and joints under takes its toll…leading to pain, worse posture, lack of strength and flexibility and more!
You can increase the pressure on your back by 50% simply by leaning over the sink incorrectly to brush your teeth. Keeping the right amount of curvature in the back takes pressure off the nerves and will reduce back pain.”
LEARN FOUNDATION TRAINING… It’s that simple people. FOUNDATION TRAININGS is exercise…movement…strength training, body awareness…flexibility and mobility training! FT is the whole package!

One of my clients in the picture. He has had 4 lessons. Came to me with back pain. He does take good care of himself and does yoga , but still had back pain. He has added FT to his daily regimen and has no back pain now. Notice how high his arms are . Day 1 he could only get them horizontal. His lats will now let him get those arms up. This is a powerful stretch he is in now….AWESOME!
