Let's chat about the importance of your mid back & it's coupled movement with your posterior Shoulder complex! 💪🏼🎓 First of all, just what is Body mechanics?? It is a term used to describe the way we move as we go about our daily lives/activities & sporting endeavors. It looks at how we hold our bodies when we sit, stand, lift, carry, bend, and sleep. A poor bodymechanis balance can often be a cause of back problems. When we don't move correctly and in a safe pattern, your spine is subjected to abnormal stresses, which over time can lead to degeneration of spinal structures e.g. discs and joints, injury, and unnecessary wear and tear of tendons, ligaments & muscle fibers. 👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼👐🏼 By taking control of your own functional movement patterns and learning the principals of correct body mechanics, we take our own health into our hands. It doesn't need to be complicated, we just need to be shown correct movement patterns, how to switch on and activate the right muscle groups, whilst switching off overactive compensatory imposters. Once you get used to the correct functional pattern, which can be easily incorporated into your daily life, you WILL noticed an overall improvement in your posture & function. You will be glad you took the time to learn about your biomechanical patterns as they can save you from back pain and discomfort.
