Lumbar Support Causes Neck Problems, 6 Reasons Why

Ever since discovering pelvis support in an office chair I’ve understood the bad logic of lumbar support in chairs…and that’s been 12 years of comfortable sitting at my desk. But what if you can’t drag your well-designed chair with you wherever you go, I mean it has wheels… but it’s just not going to work on the train. A quick glance at Continue reading ...

Fitness’ Missing Link

In the world of self improvement, fitness, health and wellness there is a missing link. That's a rather blanket statement Paul...why so confident? I see it in every single person I work with despite how proactively they are investing in their health... nutrition, exercise, meditation and so on. If you're visiting a practitioner (chiro, physio, massage, Continue reading ...

Bunions and Posture

While many women are paying large sums to repair their feet I'd like to help you prevent the need for surgery not to mention the pain and unsightly appearance of collapsed toes.

Chronic Pain and Your Perception of Injustice

My life changed the day I realised that my 5 years of chronic pain and back issues were not being caused by a whiplash injury at 19. The story I had been telling myself since that accident; the blame directed against the person at fault, the disappointing deterioration to my ski-paddling though I was training as hard as the rest of the crew, the Continue reading ...

New Look Relaxaback

I've been meaning to write up our latest iteration of the Relaxaback system for a while. While the CD and jacket has undergone a cosmetic facelift, the device itself has been rebuilt from the ground up...so to speak.

A Journalist Sleeps Better With Relaxaback

Exercises to Prevent Back Pain

I wish I had a dollar for every miracle program that promises to solve back pain through exercise. If being chained to a daily exercise or stretch program is your idea of independence that's fine. It wasn't for me and by understanding what your back is actually saying with pain symptoms, you might look at this approach differently too. Why Does My Continue reading ...

Cleaner’s Back Problems

Bumped into another interesting story in the gym yesterday. One of the cleaners at Gwinganna has a chronic back problem. He wakes up sore every day, has pain through his neck, up and down his arms and down his legs. He's young (same age as me ;-). But this has been going on for years. He's plagued by the "all-of-a-sudden" pain that can be triggered Continue reading ...
