Movement efficiency and finding the villain

How the body moves can be likened to an office of workers.  In this office 10 employees all performing their respective roles contributes to the efficiency and harmony of the workplace.  Let’s say 3 of the workers are not performing their respective role, this leads to the other workers being required to bear the workload of the unproductive workers.  Poor efficiency and office morale can easily be seen as the result of the 3 workers not performing although the biggest complainers are the remaining employees working too much.

Movement is in much the same fashion.  Mechanical overload in the neck and low back can often be attributed to lack of help from the mid-back or thoracic spine.  Knee pain can often be the fault of a bad foot type or hip issue.  Although the body may complain of pain, the problem often lies elsewhere.
