Springs support the client’s legs, allowing the body to to release excess muscular tension, which makes it easier to develop new motor patterns. Heal slides (sliding the heal away from and toward the body) are the same leg extension movement used in walking, bicycling and other movements. The body will later begin to integrate new motor patterns into standing movements.
If you are injured, experiencing chronic pain, considering surgical intervention, or if your body is simply not functioning well, there is a good chance that you have some non-optimal movement patterns or poor biomechanics contributing to the issue. If your biomechanics are not sound, first you need to address that as an underlying issue before your body can regain normal or active functioning. For example, if you have injured your knee due to compression in the knee joint, doing exercises to strengthen the muscles around the knee joint is not going to address the compression issue – and may in fact re-injure the area. Instead, you need to address the quality of movement – the structure and alignment, tissue hydration and mobility, etc.
The Fajardo Method® Approach
The Fajardo Method® uses nervous system based motor repatterning techniques that are able to correct the underlying issues that are keeping you from moving or moving well. Read more about motor repatterning through these topics:
Through motor repatterning, the body is able to repair itself and create sustainable and lasting changes in movement that can bring you back to the activity level you are used to. Learn more about the benefits of Fajardo Method® motor repatterning through these topics:
