I’ve got an interesting case study for you today about how sometimes the cause of pain and tension are not always so straightforward.
That was the case with “Tabby”, who came in with several weeks worth of headaches and discovered the cause to be much more than an ibuprofen deficiency.
We fixed the obvious things like her forward rolled shoulders, forward head posture, and chest breathing and had a 100% improvement the day after her appointment.
But since the headache returned a few days later after hiking about 5 or 6 miles, we dug deeper and found that the way she used her hips when she walked was overloading her muscles in her neck and shoulders.
One of Vladimir Janda’s 6 classic movement pattern tests…the hip extension test, (which I demonstrate) was the big “tip off”.
So…even if you don’t have headaches, the evaluation strategy and exercise progression I share in this episode of Core Wellness TV will give you the tools to create a more open, decompressed, and “lighter” feeling in your bodymind.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
Keep on moving…like a child!
P.S. As I mentioned in this episode, the Core Wellness Training Course and Coaching program will be closing soon to make some much needed changes.
The price for the comprehensive program will be increased when we re-open (hopefully by December 2015) to reflect all the new content and perks that have been added since CWI opened in 2010.
P.P. S. If you are currently enrolled, you will still be able to access the site as before. The changes will be mostly on the enrollment page, the enrollment video, and under the hood stuff in the membership software.
