Ever played Jenga?

If so, notice how you can have a single block underneath, but then need to balance the rest of the blocks over the top in order to maintain the upright tower?

Our skeleton is the same way. And every injury, insult, trauma, etc. will leave it’s imprint on it’s alignment. We end up with very unique strategies to adjust our center of mass to gravity while protecting the injury.

Just as the bottom Jenga blocks are key to the success of the Jenga tower’s stability, your feet are integral to your posture and alignment. With 33 joints and 26 muscles per foot, you have endless possibilities of movement patterns in each foot, effecting the joints up the chain (knee, hip, lumbar, shoulder, neck, etc.). If just one of those foot joints aren’t articulating, it will have a kinetic effect on the rest of the body all the way up to the head. So yes, I am a foot junkie and will be spending an inordinate amount of time assessing how your feet move. And yes, your shoulder pain could be directly related to your foot.

I use Anatomy in Motion as a process to interview you and your body and uncover those insults and their respective alignment strategies. It is a methodical way of looking at how your skeleton interacts with gravity, the ground, and injuries, with specific exercises geared towards helping you realign (they are unconventional, but very effective).

What makes a good candidate for this process? You have to be inquisitive, open to different ideas, have a desire to collaborate with me, and do the homework (it is not long, nor hard). You also need patience – as in things will not be fixed in 1 session (3-5 sessions are average).
