Did you know? Muscles move your bones

And because muscles move your bones…

they can either put you into or move you out of painful posture. That simple explanation describes why I centered the entire Hauber Method program around exercises and stretches—both of which alter the length and/or the strength of muscles. In the simplest terms, if you can make your muscles move your bones away from the painful position in which they currently hold themselves, you can escape pain.

Check out this encouraging post I just uploaded to YouTube, explaining it all just a little further. And, I hope, giving you the comforting knowledge that you really can get out of pain—just by correctly working your muscles.

Sure, we walk to the car and up the stairs, maybe even go to the gym and assume that’s enough, but we don’t do nearly enough targeted core stabilization to support the running, walking, jumping, and frolicking that we were built for. Therefore, our bigger, bullying, vain muscles (the glutes, quadriceps, pecs, and hamstrings, for example) step in and overcompensate for the work we’re not allowing the unsung heroes (our TVA and multifidus, for example) to do. We become too tight where we should be flexible and too weak where we need to be strong. Our muscles and bones end up playing tug of war, and the result is pain. […]
