– RELIEVE BACKPAIN, PREVENT INJURY, LIFT EASIER, RUN FASTER
– TONE UP THAT TUMMY POOCH!
Most of us spend hours each day driving to and from work, then 9 hours at a desk or computer, we
drive kids to afterschool activities, then sit and dine for another couple hours before slumping on the
couch watching TV….its no wonder our hips lock, glutes tighten and our body tightens up!
When our body is locked in a position of flexion for the majority of our day, it creates a ripple of
wrong muscles performing functions and loads they simply cannot handle.
This alone can cause our bodies to lock up, developing imbalances that lead to dysfunctional
movement patterns and unnecessary TIGHTNESS, STRESS and PAIN!
Since everything in our body is connected, foot tingliness, ankle strain, calf tightness, knee
pain…could all lead from and to hip and lower back pain. Even upper body dysfunction can lead
down to lower back and hip pain.
This means we must LOOSEN ALL STRAINED MUSCLES to restore proper function to our CORE.
For some immediate soothing and relief, you could try google some foam or ball rolling techniques,
or at least try the stretches to help unlock hip flexors and activate glutes, as shown in the photos
