Back pain relief for Birmingham
Back pain is one of the most common reasons for work absence and the single leading cause of disability worldwide. Gyrokinesis eases back pain, simply by recreating what the spine should naturally be doing. The fundamentals are the seven natural spinal movements, forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular. Everyday activities, work and general poor posture can all work together to compress the spine. The fluidity of Gyrokinesis movements allow a continuous body flow, exerting less stress and impact on joints. Muscles and joints are encouraged to relax, naturally releasing tension as the spine is elongated and space is opened up. Gyrokinesis is both a solution and a preventative measure for all kinds of back pain.
