Feeling chronically stiff, sore and inflamed is one of the most debilitating experiences any human can experience. The question of ‘how did i get like this?’ is often asked as people hunt the root cause. In my personal opinion we have to be broad with our thinking. To put it simply, if you’re 1 degree out of alignment technically your body is presenting itself to the world asymmetrically. Th problem is that when you put symmetrical force through an asymmetrical structure you strengthen the imbalance. So basically off you’re out of alignment life will slowly slowly drove you more into an imbalance. The more active you are and the more force you put through your structure the faster the imbalance builds and dysfunction spreads like a cancer exposing itself as tightness, weakness and inflammation.
