Get Started With Muscle Activation Techniques® To Help Your Joints Stay Healthy & Strong: http://services.matschaumburg.com

There is one part of your body that will help your joints stay healthy, strong, mobile, and injury-free, and it is not the joints themselves…

Your muscles!

While many people are under the belief that a joint symptom means there is a joint issue and needs to be a joint solution, our experience has shown us that this is not the case at all.

In fact, over the last 13 years, we have seen 100% of people who have a joint issue also have corresponding muscle issue, and when the muscle issue improves, so does the joint issue.

On this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, we are discussing why this is and the exact steps to take to make sure your muscles are working as well as they can so your joints stay feeling and functioning great.

Check out all the details in this week’s episode!
