Hello, my name is Josh Cohen. I am a chiropractic nutritionist from pittsburgh, pa who specializes in trigger point therapy, muscles and nutrition. This technique allows me to be very effective at reducing pain. Throughout the years that i have been practicing i have learned how the muscles work together and how they get irritated together. Through my experience I have learned how to effect most types of pain through nutrition and exercise. If done in the right way, exercise and nutrition can have a hue effect on the level of pain you have in your body.
I do not promote radical changes to your lifestyle in order to get into shape in 1 or 2 weeks. I promote more of a Common Sense Approach to diet and exercise. I feel that you need to make small changes over time in order to really affect your body and get you feeling good and get into better shape; the 2 usually go hand in hand.
I feel that you should exercise and take care of yourself to not only feel better now, but so that you’ll feel better 10 to 20 years from now as well. If you don’t take care of yourself, it will only be a matter of time before your body gives out on you.
But you have to exercise in the right way. I believe in doing functional exercises. These are exercises that strengthen up your entire body, not just one muscle or muscle group. In the real world hundreds of muscles move at once in order for you to just take one step. So why train just one muscle? Being able to do a bench press will not help you out at all in the real world. Even professional football players are getting away from that old exercise because it only promotes shoulder instability and you never have a chance to do a bench press in the real world.
I believe in strengthening up the entire kinetic chain so that when you are walking down the street and talking to a friend and not paying attention and trip over a curb you will be able to cathc yourself and prevent yourself from being injured. The muscles that will prevent that are your functional muscles (core muscles, back muscles, leg muscles). The program i have developed will strengthen you up in the ways that will stabilize your body for real life. It is not developed to get you a beach body in 2 weeks. If you want that then this is not for you. Exercise has to be done consistently, and ideally for the rest of your life. This program is designed to be able to be done for the rest of your life. It is designed to reduce the pain your currently have and to prevent more pain from coming up in the future.
If you want to live without pain and be comfortable and not end up in a wheel chair not being able to take care of yourself, then this program is for you.
That is it for my first blog. Thank you for reading, and i’ll be blogging again soon. I practice what i preach and will also be posting my workouts so you can see what i do on a regular basis to keep myself pain free and feeling good.
Thank you, Josh Cohen
