Back pain is like ‘The Joker’ lurking in the background just waiting for you to plan a holiday or an outing, and then it shows its ugly head. Unrepentant!  Lurking Sinister Malevolent and Unforgiving!  It doesn’t care what your plans are.  It has its own agenda.

So many plans are ruined by back pain. I see it all the time.

How Back Pain Can Appear Out Of the Blue

You have organised to meet up with some friends for lunch and you bend down to do something so common like put on your socks and there it is again.  The Joker is back!

I have had people hobble into my clinic or walk in with someone helping them because they can’t even stand straight.

Treating Back Pain will not Resolve Back Pain

They have been getting their Back Pain treated in the area of their pain.  Then I educate them on the Psoas muscle and its impact on our low back creating back pain and explain that they need their Psoas muscle treated.

Then they look at me and wonder as if what I have just said is somehow not going to get their back pain better.  I then ask them with all the treatment on your back where the pain is has it helped?  The standard answer is usually ” yes, but only for a short time then it returns”
