Pinpointing The Cause
And I think something to not based on the current research, a lot of people think that when you have a lower back pain issue, that it’s a serious thing. And it is, no doubt about it.
But only 1% is roughly a red flag or a condition that is going to require surgery. A lot of times these tissues can heal on their own.
You just need the right provider.
You need the right treatment and you need the right assessment to know exactly what it is that you’re actually dealing with.
I think that’s where Back in Motion and the Gray Method™ steps in and that our providers can assess your spine and discern okay, is it a disc?
Is it the facet joint? Or is it the muscle ligaments?
And so we can really discern that with our three-step process and get to the root cause of it most importantly.
A lot of people out there who have lower back pain go to see medical providers for treatment, but they never really fix the cause of it.
For example, if you have a herniated disc, they may be able to fix it with an epidural or surgery, but do they ever get to the root cause of it and figure out why it’s occurring and how to prevent it from happening again?
Or why is my facet joint getting irritated every time I swing the golf club.
We, look at the three key areas of the body with the Gray Method™, which is the thoracic spine, the hips, and the feet.
When those things aren’t working optimally or there are some weakness and stability issues, you’re going to compensate at your lower back.
The fact is your lower back is just the symptom.
In a recap, we spend the most money in the world on lower back pain from a muscular-skeletal standpoint.
Eight out of ten people will experience lower back pain at some point in their life. And it doesn’t really need to be that way.
Your herniated discs or a disc injury is typically where a lot of people get injured.
The facet joints and also just some simple muscles and ligaments tend to get irritated or strained causing low back pain.
It’s important to remember that you are not alone and you can fix these things by getting to the root cause of it.
Stay tuned for the next blog post, where we go a little bit deeper into the causes of low back pain.
