About this Item

Language: English. Brand new Book. We all know walking is great exercise. But how many people realize that walking even slightly askew (with movements that are repeated thousands of tunes a day) can cause an incredible amount of damage? Damage that may not be apparent until years of accumulated bad habits lead to greater vulnerability, severe pain and possible injury. In Walk Yourself Well, Sherry Brourman, a physical therapist with 25 years of experience and whose clients include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver, Paul M. Glaser, Ekaterina Gordeeva, and Al Joyner, shows how to free oneself from structural damage by using corrective walking techniques and simple exercises -- and without unnecessary surgery, drugs or bedrest.Walk Yourself Well shows readers how to use the body's natural motions to restore proper alignment and allow the body to strengthen in all the right places and remove pain and heal all by itself. Brourman's Primary Movement Balancing program is fully illustrated, in an instructional format anyone can use at home. Brourman also shows how to introduce the same methods into daily activities, not just walking -- replacing painful patterns with healing ways to move, and enabling readers to develop healthier habits of movement.

About this title

Synopsis:

Learn the best way to walk. Sherry Brourman P.T., teaches her straightforward and innovative method for balancing the body and eliminating pain. With a comprehensive, easy to understand self-evaluation, and illustrated stretching, strengthening and walking exercises, you can learn how to eliminate neck pain, back pain, hip pain, leg pain, knee pain and all types of structural pain, naturally, without surgery or drugs.

Review:

Given the exotic nature of so many bodywork practices, readers will be surprised to learn that they can improve their health and well-being with something as simple as walking. But that's just what Los Angeles physical therapist Brourman asserts here. Walking isn't just a great physical and meditative exercise, she points out, it's the physical activity we do most often. And just as imbalance, poor posture and untoned muscles can lead to painful injuries, correcting the way you walk and strengthening and stretching your muscles can speed your recovery or prevent you from getting hurt in the first place. Because Brourman doesn't have the luxury of seeing every reader personally, a great deal of the book is devoted to diagnosing and solving individual gait problems--something that can be done, she says, because the standards of human symmetry are the same for everyone. "The truth is that height, weight, proportions, age, sex, and all other human features and options don't change the basic elements of a symmetrical walk," she writes. The instructions are reasonably easy to follow (although some readers may be disconcerted by a common experience--when you start thinking about how you should be doing something you do every day, you start to "forget" how you did it in the first place). Those who are suffering from pain in such places as the back and the knees may be most motivated to follow Brourman's instructions, but she makes it clear that just about everyone can benefit from a good walk.
