Very little is known on what triggers lower back pains. But that does not stop eighty percent of adults from suffering it at some point of their lives. Are we missing something really obvious here?
If you have had a medical examination for your lower back pain and no specific cause has been diagnosed what can you do? You may have been told that it is either ‘all in your mind’ or, worse still, be suspected of faking it to get time off work. The problem is that if medical tests cannot find a probable cause it is assumed there is nothing wrong with you. Now this isn’t much use to you is it!
The problem as I see it is that medical science does not yet recognize what could be a major factor in back pain. This factor, in my opinion, is that most adults, due to stress and the pressures of modern living, have lost the art of ‘Natural Movement’.
People living in a modern society often find themselves behind a desk, in front of a monitor or TV, or driving behind the wheels of a car most of the time. Are we aware what this really does to our backs? Even when we exercise, how many of us adults could still move freely and efficiently as when we were a young teenager?
Has your doctor advised exercise? Yes it is true that activity is better than bed rest for your back, but how do you know if you are moving correctly? If posture and the way we move are a cause of lower back pain, are we not making it worse by using our bodies more vigorously?
My suggestion on the matter is, before you begin any exercise program to rehabilitate your back, you should first take a good look at how you stand, sit, walk and run. If you are aware of the excess stress many of us put on our lower backs as we go about our daily chores, you are on a good track to treating and preventing any problems.
Muscle re-education can help you reduce the stresses and strains you unknowingly put on your body even if you do not already suffer from pain. It will reduce any lower back pain you suffer or even prevent any future pain. As I’ve been teaching movement and posture re-education, I see many people who are just amazed at how much strains they have placing on their body even for the simplest of tasks after learning a few simple ‘tricks’. They feel ‘lighter’ from the freedom of movement this has given them.
