Focused-motion exercise is best for low back rehab

Finding and rehabilitating your “forgotten” arcs of motion

A recent study compared a focused motion exercise with traditional exercise and concluded that the focused motion “elicited significant reductions in self-rated disability and pain”. Researchers found that after training, disability was significantly lower and pain was reduced in both groups, but it was significantly lower in the focused motion group.

TAKEAWAY: “The Body Learns to Move in the Patterns you Teach it” (4th posture principle from Stand Taller~Live Longer: An Anti- Aging Strategy ). StrongPosture® exercise (or other focused motion exercise) is essential to rehab “forgotten” arcs of motion and function.
