Good posture will make you pain free
Robin has dealt with a tremendous amount of pain as an athlete. He ran track and cross country at Penn State University excelling in the 400M, 800M, and 5 Mile run. Robin’s injuries were numerous, including pain in his knees, lower back, neck, and shoulder. The penultimate injury occurred when he suffered a complete tear of one of his hip flexor muscles during a run prompting doctors to tell him he would never run again due to the strain on his body. On an emotional level, it was nothing short of devastating since running was his passion and soon the pain began to negatively affect his studies, work, relationships, and sleep. Robin was not willing to let the pain win, and he sought out answers. Traditional therapies did not work and only provided temporary relief.
How he got "Pain Free"
Finally, Robin finally stumbled upon a book called “Pain Free” by Pete Egoscue. It changed his life. The book explained how misaligned joints and poor posture can cause pain. The book made him realize he was using the wrong muscles to move and his posture and alignment had become compromised and imbalanced as a result. The cornerstone of the book’s message was how to achieve the proper alignment of the body through stretching, reactivating, and strengthening of muscles by using very specific postural exercises. It was a common sense approach that he adopted and within six months, he was completely pain free and has been running pain free since then.
