Sitting Disorder, part 2

by Chris on October 13, 2010

Here I was, all prepared to put together a post on how to use chairs more effectively when I discovered, to my delight (and chagrin), that I had ALREADY done a series of vids on chairs. Not wanting to repeat myself, I’m going to link to the relevant one HERE and move on to other […]

Sitting Disorder?

by Chris on September 9, 2010

Thanks to everyone who has written in with their questions lately – I do apologize for not posting more often recently.  I moved my family across the country during the summer – not a small undertaking, it turns out. Now that we’re back into the routine of school (or, at least, getting used to the […]

Shoes – helpful or not?

December 2, 2009

I get a lot of questions from folks about what type of shoes they have, what they should use, what their fitness guru/doctor/shoe salesman/dog told them that they should use.  The truth is that there is a lot of information out there – too much, most of the time.

First things first

November 16, 2009

A guy walks into a doctor’s office and says to the doctor, “Doc, it really hurts when I move my arm like this (he demonstrates).” The doctor says, “OK,…. don’t do that anymore.” We’ve all heard that joke, right?  Why does it seem sometimes that you’re trapped inside a body that won’t quite cooperate with […]
