I created the concept of Bodylogiq as a way of expressing my logical approach to getting rid of pain. Initially, I trained in lots of areas, including sports massage and osteopathy.
To give you a little background; when I was a teenager, I jumped off a swing, landing heavily on my coccyx. I had no pain, but all my joints started to click. This prompted me to see a doctor, who dismissed the chances of any serious injury, telling me the clicking I could hear was just gas between my joints and that it would resolve itself naturally. Which it did.
Many years later, I joined a gym. I tried to do some basic crunches and realised I couldn’t lift my head and shoulders away from the floor. Further investigation (where I worked on my own body) revealed that it wasn’t my weak stomach muscles stopping me from exercising. It was my incredibly strong back muscles! They’d obviously spasmed with the shock of the swing incident and never released themselves. Whilst my stomach muscles weren’t actually weak, they were in comparison to my back muscles. Something I might never have known had I not been at the gym that day.
It’s common for people with an outcome like this to focus on strengthening weak muscles. However, using a Bodylogiq approach, we can see this would be the incorrect treatment and could even exacerbate the condition. The correct treatment is to release the back muscles from spasm.
