Whether our interest is in science or spirituality we are all potentially ‘Artists Of Possibility‘ and what I mean is that to help implement a 21st-century blueprint for physical health, emotional balance, mental clarity, expanded awareness, we have to do something different..
Transformation is a process..it doesn’t happen by accident.
“At the age of 28 after Thai boxing, I am sure you don’t need to use your imagination to accept I got injured quite quickly and was treated by a chiropractor. After a fairly quick recovery from a low back and hip injury that completely immobilized me, I decided that I would study chiropractic to try and understand better and help others.
Do you want soft tissues and your body Structurally aligned?
Alignment: Are you curious to know about postural distortions and whether a structural method of body-work can even fix what your body cannot?
My first recollection of an injury was slipping down concrete stairs at my second school and around the same time in the playground whilst running on the wet floor. We quite understandably assume that as an injury happenedhe development of stooped posture in old age.
Stooped posture has been thought to be just a natural part of aging.
Is this true?
Mechanical injuries over time cause the shape of your spine and body to change which leads to the mis-alignment that over time leads to a body loosing it’s stabilty and function.
When a bone in the spine slips forward this creates tension on spinal cord and nerves. This is known in surgery to be the cause of various conditions like Carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, thoracic outlet syndrome, and neurogenic claudication. The body settles after these injuries by compensating and twisting away from the misalignemnt (Scoliosis) to reduce the tension and often symptoms that are experienced. The body is clever and pulls other bones out of place to assist more this injury and relieve the likely pain. After these steps the body goes through more and more compensating injuries and there will be episodes of pain and relief until the pain becomes of chronicity in some cases.
The key point is that the breakdown of human posture cannot be self-corrected as there are no muscles pulling in the direction needed to correct it. A forwards vertebrae on the body would require a muscle behind the back to pull it back.
From Headaches to pins and needles to syndromes..
A forward vertebrae and head/ neck on the body causes strain on nerves, discs, muscles, and ligaments. Imagine that you are holding a medicine ball, the average human head weights 5 kgs. How much heavier would it seem or how much more strain would it be to hold, if you held it with your arm outstretched in front of you, compared to close to your chest? Your arm would feel the weight more and be trembling or at least more strain?
Tension headaches, Shoulder pain and/ or reduced motion/ muscular. Tension in the neck, upper back, numbness or tingling down the arm are very often associated with these postural distortions.
