Why Do Injuries Occur?
The body adapts based on its use.
When your movements respect human biomechanics, your body’s tensegrity will create built-in sustainability.
When your movements deviate from these patterns, the body’s ability to manage forces diminishes, chronic tensions accumulate, and the risk of injury increases.

The key to injury prevention and correction is the same — improve your mechanics.
All machinery is designed to work with a specific alignment. When a machine’s design parameters are compromised or its parts become misaligned, mechanisms within the machine do not function properly — parts begin to grind, and accelerated wear and tear occurs as the result.
For example, misalignment in your car creates accelerated wear and tear on the vehicle. Fixing or replacing deteriorating parts provides a temporary solution before the wear and tear recurs. However, addressing the source of the issue provides a lasting solution. In this case, the car’s alignment must be addressed so all the parts can work together in balance, restoring the car’s mechanical efficiency.
The Entire Body Must Be Balanced
The same goes for the human body. The spine and the major weight-bearing joints are designed to work within a specific design and alignment. Efficient biomechanics reinforces this alignment, prevents injuries, and creates longevity.
The most common areas of injury are the neck, shoulders, lower back, hips, and knees.
