La escoliosis es una curvatura anormal de la columna vertebral cuyos síntomas más comunes son dolor lumbar, dificultades al respirar y rigidez, las curvas suelen tener forma de S o de C.
Aquí vemos un ejemplo de una escoliosis funcional generada por malos hábitos posturales (entre otras cosas), tales como sentarse sobre un pie, este tipo de escoliosis es el resultado de fuerzas musculares no balanceadas en la columna vertebral.
Este 3 y 4 de noviembre, 2018 imparto un taller para todos aquellos interesados en conocer un poco más acerca de esta patología, para ayudarlos a entender de forma consciente cómo buscar una alineación más neutral.
Sábado de 2:00 a 6:00 pm | DOMINGO de 2:00 a 5:00 pm costo: $1,300
Taller avalado por Yoga Alliance como 7 horas Educación Continua

The area of the upper back (between the shoulder blades) may be difficult to stretch. Using a massage or tennis ball to apply a sustained pressure to the tender or painful spots can be helpful to provide some pain relief.
📌Cross your arms over the front of your chest to spread the shoulders blades apart before placing the ball on your upper back. Roll the ball around to 'scan' for the tenderpoint(s). Once found, stop rolling and add a firm pressure on the spot for 15secs. Repeat 3 to 5 times per spot. Apply enough pressure just before you start to frown or flinch. Do NOT press too hard!
📌Please seek help from a healthcare professional if your upper back pain feels sharp, hurts much with deep breathing or coughing, with deep ache down the upper limb +/- numbness & tingling in the hand.
DAY 9 of #scoliyogachallenge ❗️
I can't believe it's almost over!!! 😳
Today's pose #paschimottanasana or forward bend pose is my absolutely favourite! 😍 I do it literally in every yoga class 😁 It stretches the back side of your whole body. 👌🏼 Us with scoliosis can really benefit from the awesome stretch & lengthening of the spine 💚🙏🏻 You can see & compare in the first pic: my x-ray vs my spine in the pose. 👀👌🏼Like in gate pose from yesterday: your curves stretch and straighten a bit for the moment, which helps you to keep your curves flexible and give some relief to the intervertebral discs. Plus it's a great stretch for hamstrings aswell 👍🏻 Swipe left ⬅️ to see the pose from the side plus my short TUTORIALS 😉 Practice, enjoy & share with us! 💚🤩
👌🏼 TIPS * Fold from the hips, not the waist!
* If the stretch of hamstrings is too intense for you, bend your knees even more
* Completely relax your torso, head and neck
* Stay in the pose as long as you like; the longer, the better (your body has more time to get used to the pose and relax & release some tensions)

You've all heard that you should lift with your legs and not your back. But I feel like no one ever explains why?😞 So I had some 🎬 editing fun with this video from my buddy @jake.price.dc out in Houston.
You see, it all comes down to physics.📐 You have this thing called a "moment arm". This is the shortest distance from the axis of rotation (hip joint here) and the line of force from whatever your lifting. A longer moment arm means the weight is relatively heavier and more strenuous to lift because the load is further away. Shorter is the opposite.
To understand better hold a ⛃10 pound weight by your side and then extend your arm fully. You'll find the latter to be heavier because the weight is further away.
❌So when you keep the load far away, it's harder to lift, more stress on your back, and harder to keep a stable spinal position. Not good!
✅Instead, get the load as close as possible, get tight and stable, and lift from there. That may have you squatting it up like the video or doing more of a deadlift motion. Either way, you want that weight as close as possible.
Share this with a friend and let's spread the word on better lifting mechanics. No more injuries from bad technique!
𝔹𝕒𝕔𝕜 ℂ𝕒𝕣𝕖 • I hurt my back on Wednesday in a workout, likely by overdoing it swinging kettlebells around. 🤷🏼♀️
So here I am pulling out every tool in my Katonah Yoga toolbox, and remembering that this is the regular work I should be doing for the hyperlordosis in my lumbar spine (AKA accentuated curve in my lower back). This is great work for everyone, regardless of pain.
Combined with hot epsom salt baths and cold showers, I’m making progress.

To those of us with #scoliosis , a #spinalfusion , or other #backcare need, you are not alone. Sometimes it’s extraordinarily difficult to find support or “professionals” that understand our complexities, but these people do exist. Please continue to seek them out and don’t give up!

Sara, our Business Development Manager, recently presented at the Better Health at Work Award County Durham training conference, organised by Pioneering Care Partnership- PCP at the Ramside Hall. Back pain and musculoskeletal issues continue to be a problem in the workplace. An increasing number of companies are recognising that the importance of health and wellbeing schemes play an important part of helping to reduce absenteeism. The introduction of the Better health at work award has encouraged more business owners to look more closely at the health needs of their employees. Back pain usually appears in the list of the top three concerns.
We aim to support our local community and business’s by educating on the importance of prevention of illness or injury as opposed to rehabilitation at a later date.
We can offer support with:

Did you catch Doc @craigmclean's #MondayMotivation email this week? In it he discusses bad habits, and recommends three books to assist in the bad habit-breaking process, including titles from @james_clear, @drjoedispenza and @charlesduhigg. So if you've been struggling with a little loss of willpower, check out the link in our bio for these helpful reads.
Our friends at @evolve353 are doing the impossible this week - they're spending 24 hours straight 🤯 on an assault bike 🤯 in aid of CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), which raises awareness for the prevention of male suicide. Did you know 76% of suicides in the UK are male, and it's the largest killer of men under the age of 45? If you'd like to support their cause, you can pop in and cycle beside them during the challenge (Friday 29th 5pm - Saturday 30th 5pm) or donate to their Just Giving page (link in @evolve353 bio).

As a child I loved riding my bike..... I would spend hours riding.... Recently I added bike riding to my fitness regime.... nothing fancy... no gears.... just pedal power... I was a bit wobbly at first but it didn't take long to get the hang of it.... This simple sequence is good for stretching hip flexors and hamstrings... Make sure the front knee is directly over your toes.... Put some padding under the supporting knee if needed... Take it slow..... breathe deeply..... engage the core.... #gentleyogaforseniors#over60fitness#hipflexors#hamstrings#corework#innerchild#keepmoving#backcare#remedialtherapies

🔺Improve Your Side Planks🔺
The side plank is one of my favourite core exercises. Not only is it great for developing trunk / spinal strength and stability, it’s great for building strength in the lateral hip muscles 💪🏻
Improving the lateral hip muscles (gluteus medius), is very important for any single leg exercises, and for walking / running etc. So if you’re struggling with a lower limb issue, then you want to make sure you improve these...
There are 3 progressions here.
1️⃣ - Side plank basic (McGill side plank)
2️⃣ - Side plank
3️⃣ - Oblique Sit plank (DNS oblique Sit)
Make sure you get very comfortable with the basic one before progressing. It can take some time to get used to getting the spinal / pelvis position right. I used a mirror to help give me feedback until I learnt what the correct position felt like.
When done correctly, these exercises will lite up 🔥 you core (especially your side core the obliques). And also your lateral hip muscles... ➖
Some general cue points that apply to al of them are:
1️⃣ - Actively push away through your elbow, shoulder and scapula. For lots of people the shoulder is the limiting factor in side planks, and this is because they are compressing the shoulder, and not actively pushing away to create tension.
2️⃣ - Keep the chin tuck and neck neutral. The neck can easily start to work too hard in any core exercise. Keeping it in this position helps minimise compensations. It also helps activate the deep neck flexors...
3️⃣ - Take the time to learn what the correct spinal position feels like. In the videos you can see I spend a lot of time moving my pelvis to get my spine right. A mirror is great for helping with this.
4️⃣ - In the basic version and Oblique Sit, the goal is to actively drive your knee into the floor. This will activate the gluteus medius And you should feel your lateral hip working like mad.
So give these a try and let me
Know how you get on. Tag a mate who you think needs these and lets all start improving our side lanks together 👊🏻

Struggling to bend forwards due to back pain?
My client came in this morning with pain in his lower back which worsens when bending forwards. This has been a recurrent problem which normally last 4 days. He was 70% better after repeating this routine 4x this morning.
Try this exercise routine. - Only move onto the next exercise once the one you are doing becomes comfortable. - Relax throughout
Exercise 1 - In a sitting position, take a deep breath in, then bend down towards your toes at the same time as breathing out. Then curl back up to a sitting position while breathing in. Repeat until comfortable.
Exercise 2 - repeat exercise 1 and as you bend forward stand up and continue breathing out. Then while breathing in bend forwards with a relaxed spine and sit down. Sit up tall and then repeat until comfortable.
Exercise 3 - In a standing position, take a deep breath in, then bend down towards your toes at the same time as breathing out. Then breathing in curl back up to a standing position while. Repeat until comfortable.
Exercise 4 - repeat exercise 3 and hold a light weight.
If this helps then repeat throughout he day several times a day. Then repeat daily and use as a preventative measure so your back pain doesn’t come back.
If this doesn’t help then contact me to find out what else you can try.

When we learn to manually care for our physical self, we see the dynamic truth that spinal health is both internal and external. ICH is committed to teaching therapists how you recognize what herb is needed for which part of the spine that is out. We demonstrate how certain nerve lines flow through different organs presenting a concrete map between shoulder pain and a removed gallbladder.
