It is extremely important for serious and professional athletes to keep their body balanced and posture aligned because they are pushing their bodies to the max and postural imbalances will make them injury prone. This is seen daily in all professional sports and the high rates of injury and short careers of many professional athletes. Athletes who focus on balancing their bodies and keeping their posture aligned will prevent many injuries and extend their careers. We have worked with athletes from the NBA, MLB, NHL, WNBA, NFL, MLS, NCAA, and Olympic teams.
Maintaining postural alignment or a level foundation is also very important to anyone who wants to stay active as they age. People who want to run, hike, bike, golf, or play tennis into their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond should pay close attention to their posture and body alignment. Our clients who live the principle "straighten before you strengthen" are as active or more active in retirement than ever and doing it all pain free.
