are your biomechanics increasing your risk of suffering with painful feet, knees or hips in the workplace?
Do you stand for long periods at work? Or maybe you have introduced the popular standing desks in your workplace or office.
YOU MAY HAVE TRIED PUTTING MEASURE IN PLACE SUCH AS MORE "SUPPORTIVE" SHOES OR EVEN PRESSURE DAMPENING MATS. BUT, WHAT IF THE PROBLEM IS THAT YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO STAND NATURALLY AND EFFICIENTLY.
productivity starts with healthy feet
I have chased pain and treatments. I have been trapped in over supporting my own body with orthotics in the hope it would become the magic bullet that would stop my pain, make me move like I used to and most of all get me back into the activities I love with confidence. Unfortunately it didn’t. After years of further training and using myself as a guinea pig, I know intimately what causes dysfunctional movements in the lower limb and how this will affect your overall alignment and ability to move powerfully and efficiently.
The way we habitually stand and walk on our feet determines our overall health, as well as the alignment of everything our feet support such as ankles, knees, hips and lower backs.
I have come to realise that people with dysfunctional feet face 5 common problems
They often lack mobility
In our modern world people are sitting more and more and are wearing shoes that over time limit the flexibility or our muscles and joints.
They lack stability
Which means the muscles that help stabilise you have become weak.
Their joints are out of alignment
Causing increased wear and tear on joints and muscles placing you at higher risk of chronic aches and pains or from suffering an injury.
They lack control over basic movements
They fail to maintain natural movement patterns
These problems leave you feeling older than you are and less confident to participate in the activities you love and ultimately at much higher risk of chronic pain or injuries.
