“5. Physical Therapy Screenings
Don’t always try to self-diagnose. A trained eye is better than your observational powers, so find a good physical therapist or sports therapist and get your posture, movement, and proprioception checked by someone who knows exactly what they are doing.
They can find imbalances, problems, and potential weaknesses and give you a protocol to follow to ensure these ticking time bombs are ironed out. Poor posture and stability can lead to a whole range of pulls, tears, and pain. If you’re sat down all day, or you already feel like you’re hunched over, get yourself looked at.”—John Clark, Breaking Muscle
