Pain is just a symptom of what is truly going on in your body!
 
Your activities such as hobbies, work, kids, pets, down time, fun time, etc. all play a part in the memory pattern of how your body moves. The problem lies with the change between the activities. For instance, if you sit at a desk for 8 hours at work and then rake leaves for 2 hours on the same day, it is very likely that you will wake the next morning with low back and shoulder pain! Of course, you are sitting here saying “Yes, but that is a one or two-time instance!” I get it… however, your body should be ready for all activities. A very high percentage of people that would experience the exact scenario (mentioned above) would set the stage for frozen shoulder and/or a bulging disc. Our body is smart, there is no doubting this, we do things daily and have no thought about it, and that is kinda what your body does with a compensatory habit. Each fall, sprain, strain, etc. creates a memory in the muscle. These memories lead to compensations. These compensations lead to bad forming habits, like, leaning to one hip, slouching while sitting, crossing legs, and a forward tilting head, just to name a few! These habits lead to common ailments that we deal with daily.

 
 
 

Bad Habits and Bad Effects

Leaning to one hip- Causes one leg to seem longer than the other, disengages one side of the lower back and creates back and knee pain.

Crossing legs (knee over knee)- Causes one hip higher than another, disengages one side of the lower back, anteriorly tilts one hip forward and posteriorly tilts one hip back causing sciatic like pains and possible back and ankle pain, creates instability in one knee.

Forward Head Tilt- Causes headaches and migraines, aspirations, rounding of shoulders, can cause instability in upper back.

These are just a few of the most common habits that we see…

Put some thought into your actions and see how different it can make you feel!
