When we were learning how to walk as children no one had to tell us where to bend and twist from, we just moved as our body allowed us. Now as adults, our bodies have been conditioned to our daily activities like sitting at the computer, driving in the car, texting our friends, picking up a laundry basket, etc. In all of these actions we have the opportunity to move safely and efficiently for our bodies, however somewhere along the way we have forgotten how to move to support our structure.

In this video I have briefly gone over the central movements that we must do particularly when shoveling, though these movement patterns can be carried over to most all of our daily activities. By addressing how we moved from a structural perspective, we will lessen the strain our joints and soft tissues experience by supporting them with movement built on normal alignment.
