Eliminate back pain with good posture

Eight out of ten adults suffer from back pain. For some, it comes from the way they walk, for others, the way they sit. We talk about healing the root pain rather than temporary relief.

Eliminate back pain with good posture

If you are one of the 8 out of 10 adults who suffer from back pain, it is time to listen up. Did you know that the factors that lead to back pain vary from person to person? In fact, your lower back pain may be caused by the way you walk, while another person's lower back pain may be caused by the way they sit. We speak to Corrective Exercise Specialist Anthony Carey about what causes musculoskeletal pain, and how you can heal the pain instead of just giving the body temporary relief. Carey also talks to us about the importance of looking at the body as a highly-integrated structure as opposed a series of unrelated parts, and the role that posture plays in how your body works.
