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.

Our muscles are supposed to be elastic, and they need elastic tension in order to provide support for our joints.Passive stretching reduces this elasticity (like an overstretched elastic band) leaving our joints without support and vulnerable to injury.Safe mobility is achieved through developing muscular balance, and teaching our muscular system to control movement.🙌”My chiropractor recommended I went to see Mora and over time she helped to actually pull my body out of pain. I know this sounds crazy but it is true. My flexibility has improved so much, I am almost 100% pain free and this is because of Foundation Training.” Jane Stephens🙌”Foundation Training has helped enormously. I now am much more flexible and my joint and back pains have disappeared.” Murat KeceContact us to find out more:📩 info@ftinstructors.co.uk👥 Foundation Training Instructors: UK💻www.ftinstructors.co.ukFoundation Training #foundationtraining #passivestretching #stretching #flexibility #flexibilitytraining #injury #overstretch #jointpain #jointinjury #musclestrain #elasticity #muscleelasticity #musclecontraction #movementcontrol #mobility #SafeMobility #improvemobilitysafely #injuryprevention #injuryrecovery #painrelief #naturalmovement #tensegrity #structuralbalance #biomechanics #pronetoinjury #vulnerablejoints #injuryrisk #elastictension #trainsmart #rangeofmovement ...

Client Testimonial 🖋️⁠“I had been diagnosed with two prolapsed discs and a fracture point in my spine. The neurosurgeon at the hospital was not very positive regarding rehabilitation for my injury and said my only way forward would result in an operation. He told me this would mean a complete change of lifestyle.I didn't get my spinal operation and have Foundation Training to thank for my amazing recovery! I also want to thank Kat, George and Mora with their expert teaching which has helped me on my journey to become pain free. Their positive energy, approachability and their knowledge of rehabilitation has given me back my confidence and taught me to move in a completely new way.I have returned to my active lifestyle and thankfully with no operation needed! I would recommend Foundation Training to anyone suffering from back pain or injury." - Mark DuncanThe majority of spinal injuries are treated through surgery. This should be your very last resort - not your first option! Mark has been inspirational to teach and it's a pleasure to see how much his hard work has paid off.
