I want to help you, because I've been there!
A stiff, aching body means a stressful life. When you try to make it better by going for a jog, a walk or to the gym it usually gets worse. You've tried massages, lotions and painkillers but they only work short-term. Your sleep is not great and you wake up feeling 100 years old.
What about hobbies or social life? Stressful as well! When you become limited in your actions, your overall quality of life decreases.
How do I know this? This was me 7 years ago.
Your posture and movement patterns may be at the root of your problems
Learn how to move more efficiently, ditch the bad habits and ditch the back pain.
Perhaps you've tried to Google the reasons for stiffness or back pain.
You've tried online stretching videos, but nothing changed.
You've tried going to the gym to gain more strength, and the aches have actually increased
The Physiotherapist gave you some exercises to do, but you've either ignored them or you wonder if you are doing them correctly.
Your main concern is that you may just make matters worse, so you think that doing nothing at all is better.
However, the only way to improve is to continue moving. In the right way, with the right support.
Yes, this IS possible for you
You felt amazing in your body
You had no aches, pain or stiffness
You said yes to a walk, hike, or a long trip with your friends
You felt less stressed and had fewer headaches
You felt more confident at work
You felt younger and started receiving compliments
Your body is unique
Your movement should be unique too. Stop trying to do what everybody else does.
There is no one solution that fits all.
You could spend time and money on spine corrector belts, different chairs, props, or expensive equipment just to have it gather dust in a corner or you could learn how to move better.
Become aware of how you move, how you sit, how you sleep and how you stand when you talk to somebody.
If you wake up feeling 120 years old, there's a chance you need to change your evening habits. If you have back pain after going to the gym, there's a chance your posture is wrong and you're putting a lot of pressure on your spine.
There could be so many reasons why your body is sending you pain signals, all you need to do is learn how to listen.
