    Hi, I’ve been practicing the Fundamentals and it’s brilliant how it’s helping my back pain, improving my posture and strength. I’m feeling soreness in my lower neck muscles though and wanted to check – should the shoulders remain down when arms are raised high or should they be released with the arms as they extend up? I think I am creating this soreness because I’m moving my shoulders incorrectly during the postures. Would appreciate your advice. Jacqui

      Hi Jacqui,

      You want to work on keeping your shoulders wide, don’t shrug them up during any of the movements.

    THANK YOU! I struggled with intense lower back pain (on and off acute) for years. I attributed it to wrestling in high school followed by 7 years Army Infantry followed by daily 2-5 mile runs and construction work. X-rays showed a blown disc with bone on bone in lower spine. A good friend shared Foundation Training with me. It had helped him end his regular visits to the chiropractor, and after a few weeks my back felt better as well. In a few weeks of the program I went from 24-7 pinching pain in my lower back to no pain. I am now 50 years old and my back feels great. My back feels like I’m 18 again. I cannot say enough how much this has helped me. I do foundation training daily, lift weights 3-4 days a week, bike to work half the time, and hike the local mountain trails as often as I can get out. (I live in Corvallis Oregon.) If anyone has questions, please email me at [email protected] I cannot convey how life changing this program is.

    A friend suggested this program to me and I am very interested. I was in a very bad car accident last December that totaled my car. My resulting injuries landed me in chiropractic therapy for 4 months and residual lower back pain. My hips were 1.5 inches off and all 5 lower disk in my back are bulging. I am only 23 years old and starting a career in the Air Force. I work out all of the time and still frequent the chiropractor to release pain; but nothing seems to really help. Would this program benefit me or at least help with the lower back pain? Any other suggestions? Thank you!

      I would definitely give it a try, it’s hard to comment that Foundation fixes everything but it does fix a lot.

    I’m 50. A surfer, runner and in excellent shape. Had planned to compete in my first triathlon this year, but notice lower back pain on my right side and down my leg each time I step up my training. Clearly I plan to see my physician and will seek the appropriate medical advice, but it appears I may have degenerative disc issues. Does your program address non muscular pain like disc and bone? How does strengthening muscle help a disc that is just getting old and worn out?

      Basically disc issues occur because the spine is not being supported and used properly causing the breakdown of ligamentous structures. This all creates laxity in the joint causing excessive motion and inflammation around the area which causes pain. By strengthening and tightening the surrounding muscles and learning to use your body more effectively, there won’t be the excessive movement that is creating the inflammation anymore, and in turn no more pain.

    Great video. Just bought 2 dvd set. Will this process help heal/strengthen an injured knee? Age 68, works out at gym 3 to 4 times a week. Thanks, Leonard

      Hi Leonard, the exercises can help your knees as it strengthens the surrounding musculature. I feel that the Woodpecker is best at helping with knees, just be sure to hold them in the proper positioning and keep them stable through any hinges.
