Movement of our bodies is as important for expression of our genetic blueprint for health as anything else.
Our brain is a battery and it requires movement, particularly of the spine, to charge it, so every hour that we sit at our desks literally diminishes our health potential.
The major facets of movement are stability, mobility, balance, power, strength, speed, flexibility, flow, endurance and efficiency and to find the balance is to achieve each one of these without compromising another. For example if we focus too much on stability at the cost of mobility is that the right course of action?
As we begin to find the body’s true centre it will be able to move around a place of ‘dynamic equilibrium’. It can never rest in neutral but fluctuate around this point and the more it can do this with ease and efficiency, the more effective the body will be at achieving what it is capable of.
The focus of the clinic with regards to movement is movement on both a local level (chiropractic) and a global level. In other words, how do the joints of the spine move in relation to one another and how does the body move on the whole.
