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.

It may seem counterintuitive, but to straighten up knee valgus (knock knees) we need to INTERNALLY rotate the legs.

Normally the focus is placed on the outer leg when looking to correct this common postural deviation. However, by activating the muscles on the insides of the legs (The Deep Front Line) we stop the inward ‘sag’ of the knees.

Slow Motion Founder 🕺.

Sometimes slow motion can show you little details to help you improve.🧐

Notice the movement starts and is controlled by the hips not the torso.

The simple hip hinge asks the big muscles to absorb the force and initiate the movement.

Full body exercise activating all the muscle chains.

Get after it!!! The founder is something you should be adding into any daily exercise or routine.

A recent course attendant says:
“I really enjoyed the introductory course and feel like I have learned so much in such a short space of time. Having now learnt the basic principles of Foundation Training, I'm not surprised that I've been suffering with lower back and hip pain. After just three weeks I am already feeling the benefits and wish I had done it sooner. The course was really well delivered and really good value for money. I would definitely recommend it!”

Sitting has become a dominant part of everyday life - especially since the start of the pandemic with the lockdowns and having to work from home. It is something we can't avoid, but sitting is a leading cause of musculoskeletal pain.

When we sit, our bodies relax subconsciously as we are supported by the chair beneath us. From there we can flop, hunch, lean or sag in any direction we want. Important structural muscle chains switch off as they don't need to support this new seated position. This results in our joints having to take the strain to support us - not a role they are designed to do.

Sitting is unavoidable but so is chronic pain. Foundation Training reverses the effects of our modern seated lives by activating our weakened, sleepy and tight muscles. We are allowed to sit, we just shouldn't live there.
