So many doctors and scientists say that running is bad for our knees.
This is interesting in that I have studied biomechanics for 30 years and this year, at age 48, I chose to run over 300 miles on solid concrete barefoot, and I improved my health.
In my model, every movement that you make is aided by an impact resistance mechanism (I call it the spring mechanism)
Once you learn the vitally important functions it serves, how it breaks down and locks, and how it affects so many aspects of your health, you will see how important it is in your patient’s health.
- I will teach you how to check your body with a gait analysis.
- I will teach you how to treat the bodies impact resistance mechanism (I call the spring mechanism) It is a three-step process of:
- Releasing The Tension around the impact resistance mechanism (I call the spring mechanism)
- Strengthening impact resistance mechanism
- Strengthening the impact resistance mechanism the way the Athletes do through Jumping Drills and Plyometrics
- You will have a better understanding of why top athletes can run and jump without pain while some others cannot walk without pain.
What we’re experiencing is a painful misunderstanding of human engineering. We have to learn:
- How the body protects itself with the impacts into this impact resistance mechanism
- How it recycles energy through the loading and unloading of the mass of your body into this impact resistance mechanism
How it functions in the world governed by the laws of physics, engineering, and common sense.
