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.

Lifting and handling is taught in so many professions - but, it could be done better and safer!

Here are three very different ways of picking up an object:

No1: Just don’t do this! Here, the spine is taking all the load - it’s not designed for that 👎

No2: This is how lifting and handling is generally taught. It’s definitely better than No1, due to the spine staying straight, but here the knees are taking the brunt of the load 👎

No3: Here, the weight of the object is counterbalance by pulling the hips back to activate and load the entire posterior chain. By taking the load on the big muscles of the posterior chain, the joints are supported and protected 👍

Treat your body well and it will last you well!

Believe it or not, this is good news!

Yes, poor posture causes pain, BUT posture can be improved meaning pain CAN be eased!

💭 Thinking ‘I need to sit up straight more often’ isn’t going to cut it though 💭

You need to teach your body how to hold itself correctly to avoid slumping into damaging postures that put unnecessary strain on your joints.

I don’t know about you, but for me, putting a small amount of effort in to ensuring my body remains balanced and pain free is absolutely worth it!
