Lower back pain is one of the most common and pervasive conditions affecting people today. What makes addressing the issue complicated? Traditional wisdom suggests we only consider pain in isolation, ignoring any other factors that could impact a patient or client’s experience. However, a core truth of the human body is that nothing in the body operates in isolation. The body is an interconnected whole, so dysfunction in one area will likely cause dysfunction elsewhere.
Offering efficient, effective treatment for low back pain is imperative. However, many practitioners fail to identify the real source of dysfunction, which often stems from the hip.
The hip is a ball and socket joint that has extraordinary power and motion in all three planes. But, when any of our hip’s movements are limited, whether that’s because of injury, inactivity, or dysfunction, our bodies respond, and the motion will go somewhere else. When faced with dysfunction, the hip automatically compensates for its inability to move correctly by transferring abnormal motion to its “neighbors.”
For many people, this transfer results in persistent low back pain.
This approach shouldn’t be radical. And yet, people are still surprised when injuries heal more efficiently and effectively when they’re put in context, rather than treated in isolation or on a table. If you’re suffering from back pain, it’s time to heal. Reach out to me to begin your healing journey.
