Your body is a wonder of design built for locomotion, support and protection. Everything is a perfect balance for weight and strength, and everything works together - in what should be perfect harmony. I took a photo of a wonderful individual at the Real Bodies exhibition at the NEC that clearly shows how linked and integrated our backs are in terms of fascia and muscle. It is a thing of beauty; a feat of engineering. For me, it clearly shows that if one area is not functioning properly, it can have far reaching consequences...which is why my pain clinic massages are 1hr long...the hamstrings are connected to the gluteus maximus which is connected to the thoracic-lumbar fascia which is connected to the trapezius...via fascia, tendons, bones and ligaments...so you may have a pain in your neck which started in your bum! If you are suffering with back pain (chronic or acute) call for a chat or pop in for a free consultation (booking required) from 27th Aug 18 at the new Fitness Space gym in Chester town centre.
