Sara Eckel of the New York Times discusses a new trend in injury prevention – motion correction. More and more individuals are seeking help from fitness professionals and medical doctors to ensure that they are employing proper biomechanics in everything from jumping to heavy lifting. This article speaks to a growing community of people looking to diagnosis and correct issues with their natural walking gait. Eckel interviews attendees at a Brooklyn yoga class led by instructor Jonathan FitzGordon to learn their motivations for learning to walk late in life and the results they’ve seen. Breaking a 30 or 40 year old habit is not an easy endeavor. However, Eckel suggests that the benefits may be well worth the effort.
