This is why your back is stiff, sore, or painful

It is not the condition of the activity you do that creates morning low back stiffness, episodic back pain, or damaged discs (herniation or bulge), but is actually the condition of how you use your spine/back to help produce extremity motion to lift, push, or pull objects. How you operate your spine is what causes these manifestations. Simply put you can either; move your spine along with the arms and legs to produce a movement, or you can keep the spine stable (like a column) so it can provide a solid platform for them arms and legs to work against. These two movement options are all that is available to everyone.

    Moving Back or Survival Movement:

The first way is the moving back system and occurs when the spine moves (isotonic contraction) along with the arms and/or legs to generate the desired movement. I call this “survival movement”. There is no solid foundation or platform for the arms and/or legs to work against.

    Non-moving Back or Thrive Movement:

The other option is called the “thrive movement system” and is where the spine provides a non-moving platform for the arms and legs to work against. The spine stabilizes and the arms and legs do all the movement. Developing this thrive system quickly corrects any existing strength and length deficits found in the arms and legs. It also builds your most powerful core while eliminating or preventing injuries. Kaehler Core quickly helps your develop your thrive movement system and builds your best body so you can excel at rowing, running, triathlon, obstacle course racing, track and field, weight lifting or whatever it is you love to do. In the video Christina is doing a Level 1 (of the four levels) Kaehler Core exercise. She has overcome chronic low back pain using both the Kaehler Core and column core training. The Kaehler Core quickly helps your develop your thrive movement system and builds your best body so you can excel at rowing, running, triathlon, obstacle course racing, track and field, weight lifting or whatever it is you love to do.
