The squat is a movement that is both commonly needed to perform the tasks of our daily lives and an important indicator of your overall physical health. Yet, by the age of adulthood most Americans have lost the natural ability to squat correctly. The risks of squatting incorrectly in the gym or in our daily activities can lead to lower back pain, knee pain, neck pain, and injuries including disc herniation, ACL tears, and tendinitis.
