Is your exercise helping or hurting your back

People often make the assumption that the best way to fix their back pain is to do exercises that they think will strengthen those muscles. Maybe they do dead lifts. Maybe they’ll try planks, bridges or stretching. Maybe they’ll do crunches to strengthen their core. None of these exercises are necessarily bad. The problem is, […]

Next time you walk outside or down the hall at work, notice how many people are hunched over while they walk or sit, or even when they’re carrying on a conversation. If you were to go to a college campus or high school, you would probably find most kids with their heads down. It’s not […]

I don’t claim to be a scout for a big league baseball team. But when I encounter a young man like Carlos, who at the time was 6-foot-6 and threw a baseball 90 miles per hour as a 17-year-old, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say he could hear his name called at some […]
