1. The body is integrated – not isolated.
2. Muscles do not function properly if the joints they attach to are immobile.
3. The right lower extremity works in conjunction with the left upper extremity and vice versa.
4. A loss of mobility in any area will be compensated for by increased mobility further along the kinetic chain.
5. For the smart slings of the body to work correctly, the joints must be mobile and under active control.
6. The body’s natural movement systems are always working to conserve energy.
7. Problems usually begin at the ground and work their way up, but not always.
8. Areas of the body with the most joints have the highest potential for changing chronically poor movement patterns.
