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.

The Windmill is an advanced @foundationtraining exercise that teaches safe and controlled rotation of the hips and spine.As the hips rotate to initiate the Windmill, the adductors lengthen and tension to support the hips providing a safe platform for the spine to continue the rotation from.By opening the arms and using ‘Decompression Breathing’ to create space, we start to integrate multiple chains of muscles into the one exercise.When done correctly, this is an incredibly strong but difficult exercise which incorporates all the principles of Foundation Training at once.If you want a strong and pain free back, learn the basics first and then the Windmill!Contact us to find out how to start: 📩 info@ftinstructors.co.uk👥 www.facebook.com/ftinstructors💻www.ftinstructors.co.uk#painfree #foundationtraining #education #rotation #hips #barefoot #strength #spinehealth #functionalmovement #functionalbodies #workout #musclechains #bodyaware #backpainrelief #backpainsolution #posturerealignment ...

Primary and Secondary Support Systems 🧬We have two major support systems in the body – the muscular system and the skeletal system (bones and ligaments). The primary system is the muscular system which is designed to absorb force and control movement, and this is what we should be relying on most of the time, but if need be, we have the skeletal system as a backup. But that’s what it is – a backup – not what we should be relying on all the time! However, pain in our backs, knees, hips, necks and shoulders occurs when the muscular system, our primary system, has become imbalanced and can no longer absorb load effectively - meaning we start to rely on the joints, our secondary system, for support. But, this additional strain on the joints eventually starts to wear them down, the body begins to protect them with inflammation, movement becomes restricted, and as movement is restricted, we start getting sore. Foundation Training reverses these effects and returns your body to a balanced state. It really is a life-changing practice 🙌 ... See MoreSee Less
