Newburyport is an incredible place to run. If you are a runner, you are most likely familiar with a lot of the repetitive injuries that come with running long distances. During our Structural BioCorrection examination, we also perform a Balance Assessment. Many times we will see individuals who believe that they are standing evenly, and may be leaning 20 or 30 pounds to one side.
Imagine if you are someone who runs 20 miles per week. If you are leaning 20 or 30 pounds to one side, that amounts to an enormous of stresses on your low back, pelvis, hips, knees, and ankles.
Having the correct underlying structure means that you are able to distribute the weight of your body, the force of gravity, and the impact from the pavement evenly along the joints throughout your body. When you have a structural shift these forces are not distributed evenly, and certain areas end up taking the brunt of the force. Our bodies are incredible, but when you have a structural shift and are a runner; you could be doing more harm than good to your body.
