Never work through an injury!
Even the slightest injury can compromise your ability to get into neutral spine alignment. If you have suffered an injury, please schedule a $50 Injury Severity Screen before your next workout so that we can confirm you are able to get the most out of the next workout. Remember, workouts performed outside of neutral spine alignment only reinforce the faulty loading patterns that cause the joint misalignments that serve as the foundation for most chronic pain conditions.
Knowledge is Power
At each level of your progression toward healthy posture we are going to highlight a concept at that level critical for getting the most out of your membership.
Joint Clearing Technique – faulty posture causes joint misalignments. Joint misalignments cause pain. Joint clearing techniques put commonly misaligned bones in alignment before you start strengthening exercises to break the faulty loading patterns contributing to your pain. The HPC contains 16 proprietary joint clearing techniques that are prescribed as needed to customize the program for your individual needs.
Neutral Spine Alignment – when your pelvis, rib cage and skull are in alignment with each other you are in neutral spine alignment. All your vertebrae are aligned in a way that allow loads to transfer through each vertebra in a healthy way. Neutral spine conditioning is a fitness program that restores your ability get into neutral spine alignment and conditions your nervous system to function from neutral spine alignment.

Why Do I Need a Password?
Neutral spine conditioning is not fitness conditioning. A key to our success in helping transform how you move is controlling how quickly you progress through the program. You must master each level of conditioning to ensure you do not progress beyond your ability to perform each exercise from neutral spine alignment.

How Do I get my Password?

When progressed to a higher level of the program, you will receive the following.

- a unique password to access the workouts on that page
- instructions to not perform that workout independently until you have been guided through the new exercises virtually
Can I Progress Myself?
No. You are progressed through the program based on your demonstrated ability to perform each exercise from neutral spine alignment. We control your progression communications through the program digitally. At the end of each virtual workout sessions, you will be provided a workout page link. If you are being progressed to a more advanced workout that link will include the password required to access the workouts on that page.

Should I Work Through Pain?
No. Your neutral spine conditioning specialist can identify whether your pain coming from tight muscles that need to be conditioned to allow for more length or if your pain is coming from another source that may require modifications.
