Your BRIDGE back to being active at every age and stage

Cara with client, Kim

New Goals, New Workout. Are You Ready?

Her new workout plan was challenging. How did Bridging® make sure she was reaping all the benefits?

In the latest Bridging® Insider video we meet Kim, who has some ambitious plans with her new workout routine.

As she embarks on her new mix of activity she wanted to make sure she wasn’t going to aggravate an old injury, or cause a new one.

See what we found, and how her body is in a better place to workout!

New Year. New Goals. New exercise program.

Generally Kim stays pretty active, but she wanted to improve cardio and strength, so she added more intensity. Over the years, her knee and low back have been problematic due to a soccer injury from years ago. Her ACL tore and she had surgery to repair it. She wanted to make sure her workout changes would have only good effects!

Kim’s movement disruptors

Left ACL repair. Fell down stairs.

As you’ll see in the video, using Bridging® we were able to assess the basics of how her body’s micromovements work and put specific core relationships back together. She felt less tension and more ease of movement when we finished.

At The Bridging® Institute, we find that movement disruptors accumulate over the years leaving your body less able to bounce back. Life can easily become a vicious circle of exercise, maintenance, and fatigue.

Why does an injury impact movement years later?

The soccer-related ACL tear happened about 20 years ago. Why might that cause a concern now?

Your body’s coordination can be disrupted a little bit at a time

For Kim’s situation, here are the considerations we took into account:

  1. Her movement was affected by the trauma of the ACL injury itself.
  2. The injury, post-surgical immobilization, and remaining scar tissue created movement compensations.
  3. She has since led a life with the incidental bumps and falls we all have, and had two pregnancies; these layer on top of the effects of the above.

By following our unique problem-solving process, we are quickly able to hone in on how the collection of life events relates to your stiffness or pain. By getting to the source of the body’s imbalances, we are able to maximize the improvements in movement and coordination for you.

Putting injured bodies back together

Often it takes only 2-3 sessions to reset the upset from an injury. You will be all set to get back into the workout routine that interests you without hurting yourself further!

Which movement disruptors are impacting your ability to stay active?

Our unique, engineering-based, problem-solving process looks at how each part of your body connects and transitions with the next part. Where there are glitches, we support and guide the movement, and add a subtle stretch to seal in the new muscle relationships.
