After a comprehensive evaluation and manual therapy to restore access to neutral spine alignment you will be oriented on workout #1 of the SymFit Health Fitness System. Workout #1 introduces the first principle of neutral spine alignment - "Chest Lift". Your follow-up treatment will review principle #2 - How to unload the low back by "Connecting Rib Cage to Pelvis."
Your 3rd treatment will start teaching you how to put your own mis-alignments through SymFit Self-correction techniques. Workout #3 orientates you in the 3rd principle of neutral spine alignment - How to unload the neck through a "Head Nod." Workout #4 introduces the 4th principle - Restoring symmetrical loading through the hips, knees and ankle via "Inward Spiral" of the hips.
The objective of the first week of the SymFit® Healthy Fitness System is to restore your ability to access neutral spine alignment and begin the process of living a more neutral spine based life.
