This young lady had been complaining of lower back pain and she couldn’t straighten her left leg. Her imbalances were compounded by two things. The first was that she’d had a rapid growth spurt. The second was that she is considerably taller than her classmates, and had been stooping to blend in. Her breathing was high in her chest with a habit of holding her breath.
I used the Be Activated 123 assessment protocol to identify her ‘cheat’ patterns.
1st session. Diaphragm release, breathing, and zone 1 activations. Straight up to her jaw followed by Butt bungi exercises.
Zone 2, and 3 then slings and abs. Soft Tissue Release and myofascial release techniques applied where necessary.
3 x Daily Activations- diaphragm, breathing, zone 1 and 2, and slings.
Learning to feel the ‘new’ stuff and to tune in to how she moved.
