Posture Alignment - The Body's Design!

Doing a Yoga Posture on High Rock

We are Part Biomechanical in Nature

Since many components of the musculoskeletal system resemble hinges, balls and sockets, levers, or pulleys we are beginning  to see them as fragile parts that wear out and need to be replaced like car parts.

The design configuration of each joint and its associated musculature have their own logic and purpose We are also are being taught that the function of walking, stretching, twisting, turning or bending is of secondary importance in terms of health.

So complaints such as my stomach hurts, I have a headache, I lost my appetite, I feel dizzy, I have high blood pressure, I don't seem to feel balanced, I am tired or even I feel older is often blamed on a variety of other reasons. However our biomechanical nature has a lot to do with our nervous system, respiratory, circulatory, and metabolic systems.  These symptoms are often signs of motion starvation.


Muscular Skeleton has Two Jobs

One is to bear weight, and the other is to absorb the shock of movement. It does this with joints called load joints, such as shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle.

How to Activate Lost Function

Body Building, grinding workouts, stair climbing can not activate lost function. They often do just the opposite by strengthening the very compensation muscles that are causing us pain and loss of balance. Without proper design motion we are eventually looking at chronic pain. 

Each muscle is design for a certain function. If a muscle  become dormant because of lack of proper stimulus, the compensation muscle that is called to do its job will cause a reduction in the Body's function that will eventually cause pain and loss of balance. But if the dormant muscle gets reactivated than the muscle remembers it purpose and all is well.

Movement in Different types of Exercises

Design Motion

There is motion and there is design motion, only design motion reactivates muscles. You teach the muscle what it is supposed to do and it remembers.

Motion at odds with design is wasted or even harmful. If the knee is being rotated my muscles not design to do the job of walking, the knee starts to hurt. The knee will not tolerate rotation for long and most compensation includes rotation.

Your body does have motion requirements. With proper stimulus it is possible to systematically restore functions that will result in proper motion and in the maintenance of a fully functional musculoskeletal system and a healthy body.

Woman in Perfect Balance

The body must achieve balance sufficiently to constantly return the body to vertical load.  The skeleton must be vertically aligned in its posture. Muscles must work in pairs and equally on the right and left side of the body.

Body's Design Restored by functional Exercises

The body always remembers its design memory, so when you start changing the stimulus with exercises the body has no choice, it changes. The goal is to allow the body to return to its birthright, its design template, and it can because it never forgets the memory. All we're doing is providing the necessary stimulus by doing the simple exercises.

You can't complain about chronic pain if you are not helping the situation. We've convinced ourselves that we're fragile and complicated, and because of that only experts can help us solve our problems. It's just not true.
