Rick Perry’s lower back pain hurt his presidential run. See our blog from last year predicting this.
Before Mitt won the republican primary race, a number of competitors entertained us for a year with their debates and their positions on becoming president. Our blog Politicalpostures that evaluates the actual postures of the candidates made some predictions last year based on the way they are built.
Based on the book Cheating Mother Nature, what you need to know to beat chronic pain, predicting who will suffer with lower back problems is a visual process. If you know what to look for, you can make predictions on how they feel because body style is inherited and asymmetry as predictable consequences. Check this out. It looks like our predictions were accurate. Rick Perry ended up having lower back surgery (read about that here).

Rick Perry’s prayer rally in houston was about his presidential run in 2012. Should he also pray for better body mechanics too?
Rick Perry’s prayer rally in Houston was about his presidential run in 2012. Should he also pray for better body mechanics too?
Rick Perry held a prayer rally in Houston this past weekend as a prelude to his presidential campaign which has yet to officially be announced. As many of us have already seen, the headaches of leadership and the presidency are amazing. I decided to give the Governor a closer look biomechanically, that is
While looking at the governor, I noticed his right shoulder in all the photos leans forward. This is typically caused by a body style where the foot flares out. If you look at the right foot in the full body shot, it does. This will drop his hip on the right side and the right leg will tend to hit the ground harder with a short stride. The opposite side, the left hip will tend to strain giving rise to left lower back pain. I am guessing his neck is tight as well and he fees tension in his left shoulder-blade. I would also not be surprised if he from time to time experiences left knee pain based on his body style.
Eventually, I would love to speak with Governor Perry, if he is so inclined and find out if my analysis is correct. This is of course, following the many clues in the public domain photos I have been able to find.
Good luck on your eventual presidential 2012 run. While you are in your prayers, you may wish to also pray for good foot orthotics too. They may help eliminate back and knee pain during the grueling campaign process.
What do you think? As always, I value your opinion.
