Back Pain is the No. 1 Cause of Disability Worldwide
This 3-year study into back pain across the globe published in the prestigious medical journal ‘The Lancet’ reports that our current treatments for back pain are lacking in evidence of effectiveness. See article below
This research paper [below] shows how the Psoas Major Muscle exerts huge compression and sheer forces on our low spine resulting in crumpling and severely shearing the lumbar spine.
Back pain has been classified by leading researchers as the number one cause of disability worldwide, and it is expected to increase as the population ages.
In my 30 years as a physiotherapist I have treated literally thousands of people suffering from low back pain. In my early years I remember thinking why do these people keep coming back with the same back problem? I thought I was doing something wrong.
When I graduated from Physiotherapy my first placement was treating men from the Holden Car Plant in Adelaide
I expected to get them all better, but often they would be returning with the SAME back problem not long after treatment. I began to question myself as a physiotherapist. Was I doing something wrong, did I miss something in class?
Then as I continued, I realised that this is what all therapists are getting. And when I questioned the other therapists about this they did not even see this as a problem. They just said “that’s the way it works”.
I started to question the results we were getting and I was not satisfied to get these results
It was in 2005 that I found the research that changed everything. It was this research that I did not even know existed and has led me to change everything I had been taught. So through this journey I now know why back pain is the no. 1 cause of disability worldwide.
Now I know the Answer: Back pain where the pain is felt is NOT the place to TREAT Back pain.
The method I have evolved in my clinic over the last 15 years does not treat the ‘back pain’, this is merely a symptom of something deeper in the body not working as it should.
The method I have developed and that I have great success with, starts with looking at the body as a whole.
I assess all body movement, posture and alignment first. By doing this first the body will reveal what it needs to be treated or addressed, and it is NEVER on the back!
