In the current climate of fast-paced living, long working hours and shared childcare responsibilities, men are struggling to gain a healthy work-life balance. Both physical work and predominantly sedentary activities present complex burdens on men’s physical health, leading to tension, back pain and other joint ailments that have become all too common.
Men are particularly susceptible to these complaints due to their lower levels of female sex hormones, which can lead to more rigidity, restricted mobility and inflexibility than is often found in women. Due to their hormonal balance, men often have more muscle, fasciae and connective tissue tension than women and can be at greater risk of injury.
Compounding this is the fact that all men often fail to address their nutrition, exercise and movement.
