A big THANK YOU to everyone who joined us for our "AVOID BACK SURGERY" workshop this Sunday. It was great meeting you all and we hope you make it to the clinic one day soon for a treatment.
From our friends at STRONG BODY PILATES, we wanted to invite you to their workshop as we like to refer our clients (and friends) to them for a maintenance diet of strengthening.
"This is a must for anyone who has suffered any LOWER back weakness, stiffness, pain, herniated discs, sciatica, or for those of you who just want to learn and develop a good lower back practice to avoid any problems in the future. There are routines to build strength and length in the lower back and routines to connect the abdominal muscles to the spine to support healthy lower back function.
Working your MID back keeps your thoracic vertebrae and rib cage area unrestricted. If this part of the spine is compressed and tight it can cause lower and upper back problems. It also houses your lungs and heart and so the more freedom you have in this area the better this is for your circulation and all-round body performance.
Moving up, we focus on your UPPER back, from shoulder level, neck and up to the skull. This is an area in the body where many people mount their stress and tension-causing tightness, restriction and vertebral compression. Maintained tightness over long periods can cause restriction of neck and head movement, pinched nerves which can result in pins and needles, numbness and burning down the arms, and herniated discs.
This workshop offers routines that align your spine and creates a long strong, flexible neck with full range of motion.
Online registration closes 24 hours before workshop. After that time please call or email to reserve your spot. Single workshop is $50, 3 workshops are $135, pre-paid. All purchases expire 6 months from date of purchase. If purchasing balls at the end of the workshop, please bring cash or check for instructor, as balls are not sold directly through Strong Body Pilates."
