What is Foundation Training?

Foundation Training is a movement practice designed to restore the body’s natural order and put YOU at the centre of your health. It teaches your body how to properly support itself and move as nature intended. It was developed by chiropractor and movement expert, Dr Eric Goodman, to heal his own chronic back pain. Having refused spinal fusion surgery prescribed to him by several doctors, he managed to get himself out of pain within a year. Now, years later, Dr Goodman leads an active, pain free life and has developed an incredible series of exercises to help others do the same.

 

Thousands of people who were in pain with anything from sore knees and failing hips to bad backs and painful shoulders, have discovered remarkable healing through Foundation Training. The power of decompression and the restoration of correct movement make this programme a natural and effective alternative to heavy-handed medical intervention.

 

This programme is not a temporary remedy, but a systematic solution that offers long-term benefits. Practicing Foundation Training enables one to reach, achieve and experience incredible health and wellness.

We normally think of our ribs being at the front of the body and expanding forwards as we breathe.However, the ribs wrap all the way around the torso and attach to the spine at the back.The majority of our lung tissue actually sits in these posterior portions of the ribcage and, when we breathe, the back of the ribcage should expand too 🫁.However, we often lose the ability to expand the back of the ribcage which causes a whole host of problems:🔸Upper and lower back pain🔸Shoulder problems🔸Neck pain🔸Breathing restrictions/Lung conditions 🔸Carpel Tunnel Syndrome🔸and many more...Can you expand your back ribs? Have you ever thought about the back of your ribcage?If your answer is ‘no’ to either of these questions (and this will be the case for many!) then look up ‘decompression breathing’ and start moving those back ribs!Contact us to find out more:📩 info@ftinstructors.co.uk👥 www.facebook.com/ftinstructors💻 www.ftinstructors.co.uk@foundationtraining #foundationtraining #ribcage #ribcageexpansion #backribcage #thoracicspine #thoracicmobility #spinalrotation #thoracicoutletsyndrome #frozenshoulder #shoulderpain #neckpainrelief #functionallats #latworkout #trapeziusworkout #serrarusmuscles #respiratorymuscles #breathing #lungfunction #breathwork #scapulaglide #scapularwinging #carpeltunnelsyndrome #brachialplexus #kyphosis #kyphosisexercises #flatthoracicspine #spinalcurves #asthma #breathingproblems ...
