Pain can change posture and movement through compensations or avoidance. However, an inefficient movement can also cause injury and pain.
For example, disc herniation can cause misalignment and difficulties with movement of the spine. But the reverse is also true, the herniation of intervertebral disc can be a result of months or years of overuse through excessive movement and accumulation of compressive and shearing forces.
The Feldenkrais method can help you move better, reducing strain on your muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs and joints.
