Suffering from chronic pain and anxiety?
Both correlate to the way your body handles stress, based on your physical frame aka posture. A slouched posture correlates to depressive episodes and high anxiety, because your fascia stores emotions- ie; childhood traumas, environmental stress- and those emotions influence the way you carry yourself.
It’s rare to see someone with a strong posture suffer from depression and unmanageable anxiety, because their structure cultivates a better response to handle those stressors. The goal is not to avoid stress, but to teach your body to handle it more efficiently.
It goes deeper, but if you’re on the fence about improving your health, learn Functional Patterns training. The results fix structural imbalances influencing your physical and mental health, producing a body equipped to handle stress.

Without proper muscle activity, physical activity suffers.
If your muscles don’t work when you work, your body picks up the slack in deficit ways.
The body is king/queen at compensating, which means if you want it to achieve a range of motion it will do it, but it will use whatever muscles it can to get there.
When you don’t use the correct muscles to move your body, you risk injuring yourself or triggering pain from improper mechanics.
Your mechanics are directly related to your muscle function, so muscles that don’t work are going to cause your body to move inefficiently.
Walking the dogs, playing tennis, exercising, standing, and general movements all require functional muscles if you want to perform these activities without consequences.
The consequence for dysfunctional muscles, is poor body mechanics, poor body mechanics contribute to movement compensations, which lead to aches, pains, and injuries.
Let our team of trainers help teach your body how it needs to function, to move without pain!
Is pain keeping your from the activities you enjoy? Have you been told surgery is your only option?
At SA Functional Fitness our pain management trainers restore the function of your muscles to support the integrity of your joints!
This is important because without proper muscle functions, your joints take on the stress from the force that your muscles should be absorbing.
Over time this leads to inflammation in the joints and causes pain from the joints working in a way they weren’t designed to.
Each trainer plans exercises to get to the root of your dysfunction causing adversity on your joints, or pain in general.
Most of the time surgery can be prevented, delayed, or faster recovery after surgery, from the right kind of exercise.
We work with numerous clients dealing with knee pain, back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain. Our goal as biomechanics trainers is to fix the underlying issue that contributes to pain in the first place. Sometimes this isn’t always possible, so our next goal is to mitigate the pain, or set your body up to recover from surgery faster and fuller with exercise before surgery.
If this sounds like something your body is searching for, then call us today to get started with one of our trainers!
