3 Exercises You Should Be Doing

Each of us have muscle imbalances and poor body mechanics we've developed because of pain, injury, or bad postural habits we've picked up over time. These poor postures or movement patterns place our bodies in a de-conditioned state and making us susceptible to chronic pain and injury. The point of corrective exercise is to identify these imbalances and create a program to correct them.

Moving Less But Injured More

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. And the cycle repeats. Even if there is a little bit of activity of walking in between our seated positions and even a workout placed somewhere in the day, there is a lot of non-movement through the average person’s day.
