A Few Things To Consider Before Working Out
In this lecture clip I discuss some ideas about exercise. There are many ideas about the best way to approach a musculoskeletal problem. Many people would say it is important to strengthen your “core.” I would agree, but I would say that strengthening your core means many different things to different people. My definition is probably very different than most. Many people talk about their pelvis being “off” or “out of alignment.” Again, I may agree with them in many cases, but I would ask what has anyone done to help this problem and keep them that way? In most cases manual intervention alone will not correct a problem like this. We would like to see someone become neutral or in a better alignment and be able to hold that better alignment before we start with more traditional exercises. This helps us to achieve a better result in less time.
