Recycle two… Blind spots

October 27, 2011

We all have them. I don’t mean that you might actually believe that you don’t have a left shoulder or a right knee, but rather that your sense of some parts of your body can be anywhere from vague to non-existent. Take, for example, your toes. Without looking at or touching them, can you sense each individual toe to the same degree as each of your fingers? Missing parts of our body image often limit efficient movement and can also contribute to pain. It works like this: if some part of you doesn’t contribute to an action, then other parts have to take up the slack. Overworked muscles and joints are more vulnerable to damage and fatigue – hello lower back pain!
