Alignment, flexibility and range of motion are the foundation of a healthy body. They give you the building blocks to build stronger muscles and increase endurance without fear of injury. They help to take the stress off your joints and heal old injuries.

Some everyday activities cause limitations in alignment, flexibility and range of motion. The biggest culprit is sitting. Inactivity can aggravate old injuries and cause bad habits. It is natural to compensate for an injury but when that becomes a habit, your alignment is off balance and then your entire system will be off.

This bad habit will increase the shear stress on your joints, cause pain and set you up for an injury.
