Pain-free Posture for Parents

Pain-free Posture for Parents

                Being a parent is a tough job. It comes with enormous pleasure and large sacrifices. One aspect of this is losing touch with a younger version of our selves. This can often be felt on a physical level and result in long-term postural pain and a lack of engagement in physical activity. But is this really what we want? Personally I like to think not! At a certain point I started to ask myself: How do I want my life to look in 5 or 10 years time? How do I want to play and interact with my kids now and in the future? And when they are a bit older and flown the nest, will I still be able to do all the things I wanted to do? How about you? Where will you be in 10 – 20 years time? Resolving your current pain and physical limitations is just the first step in living the life you have worked so hard for! Instead of working session-by-session and achieving short-term results, I tend to work in programmes of treatment designed for a long-term change in attitudes and approach to health and well-being. This is how we get far better results! We partner together on a journey that goes beyond fixing the current problem, instead working on where you want to get to. We will: Identify the root cause of your physical issues so we can prevent the problems returning. Resolve the underlying structural imbalances and get you out of pain. Enhance how your body works so you have more energy, better health...

The most profound postural changes happen in your body when you make the changes yourself, all you need is someone signposting you in the right direction. This method of treatment is for people who really want to change the way their body is working. It requires a certain degree of commitment to the work that you need to do.   How will you benefit? Through AiM sessions you will learn how your body is standing and walking and what restrictions in movement are potentially maintaining painful patterns. You will then be given the tools to help your body re-learn how to move most easily.   So, what is Anatomy in Motion (AiM)? AiM is a completely new way of looking at the relationship between pain and the way your body moves. The system has been developed by Gary Ward and expert in human movement and anatomy, and author of What the Foot? Last year he was featured on BBC’s Dr in the House for helping a man rid himself of pain he had been carrying for more than 20 years. http://www.findingcentre.co.uk Gary’s philosophy, as with many other manual therapies, is that the body has the ability to fix itself. Unfortunately for the most part patients are rarely told how. Within the AiM system therapists don’t try and ‘fix’ you, instead...
