Aligned Personal Training by Sierra Divinely
I created this program to help people reduce any chronic pain and inflammation they may be experiencing on a day to day basis that prevents them from working out or exercising in general.
This program is also designed for those who do enjoying working out but still may be experiencing chronic pain that occurs only while exercising.
Researchers from Orlando Health say close to one in five people (18%) say they often experience pain while exercising and the same percentage also habitually push through the pain rather than resting up to heal.
Exercising should not be a painful experience, you should be leaving a workout feeling stronger and better than the day before, not creating more chronic pain and inflammation.
By addressing foot stance, posture and spine alignment and strength as a whole, we are effectively able to eliminate any chronic pain that may occur while exercising.
Your posture is in a literal sense, how strong your back and shoulder muscles are and whether or not you are able to hold up your upper part of your torso. If you have weak back and shoulder muscles: The back is going to slouch and compress the lower back and spine area while also causing the shoulders to round forward and the head to stick out in front of the body.
First we must strengthen the mid back muscles in order to be able to hold up our torso correctly and then we must strengthen/correct our shoulder placement to not round forward but instead sit back comfortably and keep our chest open. Last we will make sure the head is not protruding forward and instead aligned with the spine and torso as a whole.
“In the United States, up to 87% of people have painful feet at some time in their lives. Most of these problems are from poorly fitting shoes, such as pointy-toed or high-heeled shoes.”
“Nearly 65 million Americans report a recent episode of back pain. Some 16 million adults — 8 percent of all adults — experience persistent or chronic back pain, and as a result are limited in certain everyday activities. Back pain is the sixth most costly condition in the United States.”
“Nearly 50% of individuals will continue to experience some degree of chronic neck pain or frequent occurrences. ¹¹ Among adults, 20% to 70% will experience neck pain that interferes with their daily activities during their lifetime.”
