It kills me every time I go and see my parents, I ask my dad how he’s going and he says “not good son, I’m getting old”. To which I reply “you’re not getting old, you’re just getting lazy”.
This is the reason I wrote Back On Track. To share with you the 10 minute mobility routine I use when my lower back gets tight (yes my back does get tight from time to time, but I make sure it never limits what I want to do). It is also the back routine I have given to my dad to help with his stiff lower back.
I have always been a great lover of sport; growing up I played a wide variety of sports from soccer, cricket, tennis, athletics and Australian Rules football. My passion for Australian Rules saw me travel around the country representing my state from 15-18 years of age. Whilst at university I also held a scholarship at Sydney University playing in their first grade team.
This love of sport also saw me spend a lot of time in physiotherapists, chiropractors and doctors surgeries, which piqued my curiosity into how the body moves, functions and repairs itself, leading me down the path to becoming a primary healthcare practitioner.
Learning the intricacies of movement and how the body heals itself has always fascinated me and after years of experience in treating people in pain and for increased performance I would like to share with you what I have learnt.
The mobility exercises in this book are generalised advice to improve range of motion and decrease muscle tightness. If you experience any tingling, pins and needles, loss of muscle control or muscle weakness, consult with a qualified medical practitioner before beginning the book.
All Mobility areas are designed to incorporate stretching, balls (you can use either a hard lacrosse ball, a softer tennis ball, or a foam roller. You can choose your own torture (just kidding) device here,
No, the exercises are designed to be a bearable discomfort (4/10 intensity) but you shoulder never push into pain.
You should feel better after you finish your first mobility routine, the more you do them, the longer the relief will last. After 2 weeks you should notice that your new found mobility and ranges of motion should last between workouts
“Best part about Glenn’s approach to treatment is making sure you learn how to fix your body through movement and to know when you need a bit of support through treatment as-well to keep you in track. I highly recommend Glenn!”
“a friend recommended ‘functional movement’ and I found Glenn. Glenn was able to work with me, combining chiropractic treatment and exercise therapy to build strength and flexibility, and significantly reduce the pain. I am amazed at the improvement I have seen! I would highly recommend Glenn and The Functional Movement Club for anyone suffering chronic pain or injuries!”
