Your Whole Body is Connected
and understanding how will help you learn to move better
2 minute read
The working parts of your body are all, very literally, connected.
Your shoulders, your neck, your ribs, your back, your hips – all of it. So when one part of your body isn’t functioning well, you may feel the effects somewhere else. If your back is sore but your movement isn’t restricted, that soreness is probably originating elsewhere.
Your brain is smart. When something is out of whack, it takes the path of least resistance to keep you moving with a minimum amount of energy or discomfort. This means that one area of your body will overcompensate for the problem area to protect you from injury or preserve some functionality.
Great, right? That’s helpful.
The problem is that each part of your body is built to perform a specific function really well. When an area starts working overtime to compensate for other areas, it inevitably causes problems. You might experience a limited range of motion, weakness, bad balance, or localized aches and discomfort.
The good news is… the solution is often simpler than you’d think.
When we identify the part(s) of your body requiring a shift and correct them, positive results can be immediate. Everyone has these areas of opportunity – little changes that can have a big impact on how the rest of our body functions. Relieving the stress that was holding everything back will make that particular area feel good, but it will also help the rest of your body move better, too.
So forget about that “thing” you thought you had (you don’t have a bad back, your back was just doing a job it wasn’t supposed to do). movr will help you identify your limitations and give you a personalized path to fixing them, so you can get back to focusing on the things you enjoy doing.
We’re here to help you feel better in the moment, all while setting you up for success in the long term.
movr is free.
