Walking is something we do everyday, but most of the time we don’t do it right. When you use poor posture and place your weight too far forward, it puts strain on your upper and lower back, developing chronic pain. Here is a brief explanation of how to walk to reduce your pain.
Practice this brief and frequently in order to make the function feel natural and comfortable.
- Proper standing weight shift
- Right leg forward
- Right shoulder blade back and down
- Rotate right arm so that the palm is facing forward as the arm comes back
- Relax right side and follow the same steps on the left side
