Our honest answer we don’t know, but less look at how you move, let’s look at your posture and your overall health.

A movement pattern is a movement that repeated becomes known as a motor engram, injury compensation changes movement patterns, which results in some muscles working more and some muscles working less which results in faulty movement, overloaded tissue, early tissue fatigue and over worked muscles.

The body responses with pain signals which means stop doing what you’re doing, pain medication may reduce your pain but that’s not the answer, the aim should be to find the underlying cause.


So at health1stgym Slatyford Newcastle our personal therapists want to find out what’s not working and what is, so we can begin together to peel back the layers to find out how we can help you.
