I am fascinated by how well our bodies are designed to operate. The intricate detail around the construction of our musculoskeletal system is astounding not only in its design but also in its ability to compensate and heal. Most day to day injuries occur because of compensation that we don't even perceive is happening until the system gives out and the effects of our bad habits overtake us.
Before becoming a corrective exercise specialist, I noticed that my incidences of sudden and acute back pain that could land me in bed for days, were becoming more rare the more I engaged in total body weighted activities. Then when I went into straight running season and skipped weights, I would invariably get injured again. I was curious as to how I could be in great shape and still get injured during basic daily activities. Often it gets dismissed as being part and parcel with motherhood or just plain getting older. But I'm only old by a caveman's standards, right? So, then why the injuries?
