We have a question for you – Do you maintain your body as well as you maintain your car? If your car is vibrating when you drive over 60 km an hour what do you do?
Do you think a wash and polish will help? No.
How about a higher leaded gasoline? Of course not!
The answer is that you would take it to a mechanic immediately to get to the root of the problem and get it resolved as quickly as possible, so you don’t get stranded on the highway one day on your way to work.
I am so overjoyed to announce the launch of www.resolvepainguru.com our new comprehensive online resource site with programs courses, videos and live events to help you reduce and resolve pain anytime, anywhere, from the comfort of your own home.
Did you know that the strongest muscle in the body based on its weight is the masseter (jaw muscle)?
With all muscles of the jaw working together it can close the teeth with a force as great as 55 pounds (25 kilograms) on the incisors or 200 pounds (90.7 kilograms) on the molars. Amazing! And no wonder it is so painful when it is locked tight!
Our physiology has equipped us with the ability to fight, flight or freeze in the face of imminent danger. This natural autonomic response served us well in pre-historic times. After the danger was over, we settled back into a rest and digest, nervous system response. But today it’s a different story.
Today our lifestyles, work habits, poor postural habits and weakened resiliency mean that the threats to our nervous system health are exponential – leaving us chronically overstimulated.
It is refreshing to listen to this video in support of a new way of thinking about movement and back pain, relative to stability. Professor Peter O’Sullivan and other world renowned researchers are making waves to dispel the ways that many therapists and movement modalities have been looking at, understanding and approaching core stability.
