What is Functional Patterns?
Functional Patterns is a method focused on developing the body in relation to human physiology, which creates a more sustainable body that has improved capability of responding to stressors in it's environment. We first address posture to establish a solid foundation for quality movement. This phase alone makes FP uniquely "therapeutic" as it directly translates to a more stable spine and less compensations that cause low back pain, neck pain, etc. We then introduce exercises that "re-tension" key muscles that are dormant and reintegrate them into the system. Finally, we move to dynamic movements that connect chains of muscles that are designed to function together such as the AOS (anterior oblique sling) and POS (posterior oblique sling). This is critical because these are the same chains and slings that become disconnected through bad postural and movement habits. By first prioritizing postural dysfunctions and establishing a solid foundation for movement, the body then can intrinsically be wired to transfer force efficiently, ensuring a long life of pain-free movement.
With Functional Patterns, you can tap into our evolutionary blueprint to become the best version of yourself. A stress-resilient body is a healthy, happy, disease-free body.
