Many new clients come in shifted... their squat looks crooked... or they've got a longer stride on one side when running.
So how did they get these imbalances? Oftentimes the logical explanation is that they're simply over-exposing themselves to certain environments such as:
- Spending too much time doing one thing
- Sitting at a desk with the mouse in one's right hand
- Having an untreated injury
- Playing one-sided sports like golf, sweep rowing, archery or pitching baseballs
When activities are biased towards one side, you may be disrupting the "balanced asymmetry" of the body. Yes, that's correct — we are all naturally asymmetrical.
