More than 80% of Americans experience low back pain. Long hours of sitting and driving, general inactivity, and lack of muscle tone are significant contributors. And it isn’t just the elderly, according to the Mayo Clinic Americans as young as 19 are experiencing as severe low back pain as Americans over 60.

To make matters worse, over time kyphosis (the rounding forward of the shoulders and upper back often related to seated posture) can cause compression in the lungs and difficulty breathing.

As well, weakness in the abdominal wall can cause a wide range of gastrointestinal issues. Unfortunately these are not all of the conditions that can be caused by weak and stuck abdominal muscles. Fortunately, much of this pain can be prevented or reversed by implementing the movements and exercises outlines in this video. In this workshop learn how from one of the country’s top Kinesiologists.

After this course you will understand:

  • The structure of the abdominal muscles
  • How these muscles impact the pelvis
  • How the muscles of the core impact hip and low back health
  • How abdominal muscles impact breath
  • How abdominal tonality impacts overall health and wellness
  • The role the abdominal muscles play with internal organ health and digestive wellness
  • What movements to use to provide pain relief and preventative wellbeing
