Be forward thinking about movement today and reap the rewards in years to come.
As an expert in Health and Movement, I know that waiting to break is costly in time money and health. ACC doesn’t cover wear and tear, so finding out we have it, is very costly and TOO LATE!
If you have stiffness, pain or reduced movement you are already on the slippery slope to wear and tear in years to come.
Our current approach to musculoskeletal health is reactive. We need to make sure you are moving today.
Taking a bottom of the cliff approach is out dated and can lead to serious health issues like Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Blood pressure etc.
Don’t let poor movement make you a ticking time bomb for poor health!
How do I know I have good movement I hear you ask?
Take a simple, scientifically proven, Sitting – Rising TEST
In a study published in the European Journal of Cardiology and Discover magazine, a Brazilian researcher had more than 2,000 patients ages 51 to 80, take the “Sitting-Rising” test.
People who scored fewer than eight points on the test, he found, were twice as likely to die within the next six years compared with those who scored higher. Those who scored three or fewer points were more than five times as likely to die within the same period compared with those who scored more than eight points
How well do you perform this action?
Let’s try and see.
- the picture, start by standing cross legged and sit down to the floor.
- Every time you use your hands, knees or lose your balance deduct points.
- Start with 10 and deduct a point each time use use a body part or have a sharp drop etc to help your body get up or down.
Example score – to sit on the floor, if you use a hand on the knee and one on the ground deduct 1 point each time a body part helps you out (2 points in total). To stand, you use a hand on the floor and one on your knee (take 2 points off).
Total of 6 points.
If you score less than 8 you need help with your movement now
Even if you have no pain or discomfort you may have a movement disorder which may lead to a movement disease (arthritis tendinitis spinal issues) and stop you doing the things you love or may even lead to an operation.
