The point of corrective exercise is to identify these imbalances and create a program to correct them....

The holiday season is upon us, bringing many reasons for good cheer, but it can also bring added aches and pains.

Carrying gifts, lifting heavy bags, and wrapping those gifts, are actions our bodies are not accustomed to—making us prone to injury.

To stay safe this holiday season, follow these simple, injury-prevention tips:

  • Take rest breaks during your shopping trip (e.g. sit, have something to drink, or take a lunch break)

I’ve heard it countless times in my career as a massage therapist from clients anxious to get relief from tight muscles: “No pain, no gain!” Don’t get me wrong, it’s true that deep pressure massage is often helpful in releasing soft tissue, and a little bit of pain may be worth the results; but it’s not for everyone and can sometimes cause more harm than good.

Research shows that musculoskeletal pain is more common now than it was 40 years ago. This is largely attributed to the sedentary lifestyles that we have developed. We lay down for 6 to 9 hours at night, sit down to eat breakfast, then sit in our cars to go sit at a desk for another 8 to 10 hours; only to sit in our car again to sit on a couch until we lay down again.
