Voted by the Biomechanics Education showing how Biomechanics can make a difference to peoples lives.  I have used the techniques learnt to correct the posture of many sailors, horse riders, cyclists and runners.  Plus have helped several people avoiding back surgery to overcome pain and discomfort by correcting their movement that has developed due to bad posture.

There is a video clip on the link above and a bios on the link below

Biomechanics for horse riders

Biomechanics for SPORT

Calling all riders …. We spend money on Chiropractics for our horse and work in the arena to help him strengthen his posture … but do we attend to our own posture?

Riding cogs

There are various places we can go and do Pilates and sit on mechanical horses all of which will help but if we have a proper analysis and assessment and measure up how even we are from side to side we will see exactly what we need to work on. Different muscle tensions from side to side will cause a crooked posture.

Read this snippet from an article below ….
….”This cog dynamic is why, of the two main parts that connect between horse and rider – the seat and the horse’s back, the rider’s seat must engage in the flow of movement under and forwards and round (red arrow in the diagram), and the horse’s back corresponds in an over and forwards stretch (blue arrow). This forwards stretching in both horse and rider is made possible only by the right postural support from the core muscles. ”

Wheat Belly by William Davis

 

wheatbelly

Another interesting book about wheat. …….

All of this information is out there to make us think – opinions are from the human mind, but so is research.

Data and facts are interesting – but take a look at who is researching and who sponsors it and what is in it for them?  Selling the product normally!

A story from an engineering friend – at University asked to prove a point with some data … great said the tutor – now with the same data prove the opposite. Data and facts – we have to make our own mind up.

You decide what you put in your body and you pay the consequences.
