The average person’s working and social life often results in large amounts of time working at a desk or in a sitting position, this can results in certain muscles shortening and other lengthening due to the plastic nature of muscles. People then participate in a variety of physical pursuits ranging from Rugby, Football to the Gym and DIY. This lifestyle often results in muscular skeletal pain. Dan has a lot of experience in helping people resolve these issues; posture and good movement patterns are crucial to a pain free life.
