Capitol Corrective Exercise is for you if you desire to feel better and become healthier by holistically evaluating and improving your lifestyle, movement, posture, and creating homeostasis in your life to become the healthy individual nature intended you to be.
As a holistic lifestyle practitioner, I take notice at what symptoms are present and perform extensive assessments and analysis to create a story of why you are dealing with your symptoms. I design a program that creates balance in a manner that improves your overall health by building your health from the foundation outward. Building health from the foundation includes six principals to healthy living:
Working together, each principle, when balanced properly creates synergy with the rest of the systems within the body resulting in a “well oiled machine” thus reducing the effect of any type of overstressing on the body. This improves your health physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. When just one of these principles is out of balance, it can cause discomfort, pain, injuries and even disease!
Using a Holistic Corrective Exercise approach I assess static posture, movement analysis, infant development patterns, lifestyle factors, nutrition, comparative range of motion, spinal angles, spinal rotation, spinal flexion, spinal extension, core function, pelvic position, biomotor ability analysis and physiological load. Using these assessments, I can get a complete picture of your health and educate you with the knowledge and movement necessary to allow your body to recover and heal using its natural regenerative process.
Joe is a 53-year-old male golfer. Joe has wrist pain and is advised to have surgery.
I perform a full assessment and discover that Joe has many food intolerances with the foods that he routinely eats. His core does not function properly. And, he has rigidity in his lumbar spine (low back).
I determine from this information that his food intolerances are causing his core musculature to shut down in order to allow room for the organs to expand from the inflammation. With his core shut down, his spine is exposed to great risk of injury. His lumbar spine rigidity is his body’s protection mechanism to avoid potential spinal injury. This rigidity causes the other parts of the body to become excessively mobile to make up for the restriction in movement. Ultimately, Joe ends up with excessive overuse of the wrists during his golf swing, in order to make up for the loss of mobility and rotation in the lumbar spine.
Solution: I adjust his diet to remove the foods he has intolerances to. I restore the function of his core musculature through exercises and I mobilize his lumbar spine and have him take time from swinging his golf clubs until his wrists recover.
The result: Joe avoids surgery, is able to swing much better than he has in years, he feels better with increased energy (even loses weight) and is playing golf better than he has in years!
