RESTORATIVE EXERCISE

Last night I attended a webinar at The World Massage Conference (http://worldmassageconference.com/encore) on kyphosis. It was presented by Katy Bowman, who is world-renowned for her expertise on the topic of postural realignment.

I was told about the webinar by our Pilates instructor –Carol Robbins, as she is a Restorative Exercise Specialist. Carol recently completed her certification in this field and adds specific exercises to her Pilates program, to always keep it interesting.

THINGS I’VE LEARNED
I’m learning how to walk again, using long-neglected muscles as I stretch my calves.
Shoes are a detriment to posture, as the body alignment gets shifted.
Shoes with a negative heel are preferable, but difficult to find.
Improper footwear can lead to back pain.
Walking barefoot helps relax your feet while you reclaim your posture.
 
THINGS I SHOULDN’T DO
Assume that chronic pain is natural.
Ignore it and hope it goes away.
 
WHAT I CAN DO
Stretch, Stretch, Stretch.
Walk, stand, and move your muscles.
Take a Pilates alignment class.
See a Restorative Exercise Specialist, who can help you realign your body:

See your doctor if the pain persists or doesn’t go away within a day or two.
See your therapist if treatment is recommended.
