DECOMPRESSION OF THE SPINE

Mon 10/6/14:
What is decompression? Decompression is a release of pressure or a release of forces causing pressure.
How simple is that? Everyone of us has constant forces pressing on us everyday. The number one force is GRAVITY! Our bodies are meant to be upright and work against gravity. Factor in poor habits like sitting all day at a desk, lack of exercise or movement in general, and poor posture with the effects of gravity pushing down on us….no wonder everyone is walking around with back pain, round shoulders, weak muscles.
We must get pro active with our own bodies. A doctor can give you a pill, a chiropractor can adjust you, a massage therapist can make you feel better also, but you have to do some work yourself and I mean everyday. Spinal decompression needs to happen much more frequently than any hospital or private clinic can provide. Intervertebral discs of declining health need constant and deliverable help, and they need it for life. No one can go to the chiropractor or massage therapist everyday! They are treating symptoms anyway…each individual needs to treat the causes on a daily basis.
The answer is Foundation Training! I know I say it everyday, but this is a solution. This is decompression of the spine everyday! FT is posterior chain stretching and strengthening everyday. The body needs this work. Most of us are walking around with glute muscles that are are very weak and do not function properly. All these posterior issues are self treatable…learn FOUNDATION TRAINING! I practice a little everyday and I am so much better. I still go to my chiropractor every month….now my adjustments hold longer. My chiropractor is a huge fan of Foundation Training, as is my massage therapist.

SELF CARE IS THE BEST CARE
