Low back pain affects around 80% of the population globally and is treated more by musculoskeletal therapists ( Physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths ) than any other single area of the body. It is also the area where patients continue to get repeat episodes throughout their life: despite having conventional treatment regimes.
The below was what was written in our physiotherapy journal recently about low back pain that was taken from a world wide study over a two year period involving the best medical people on the planet on back pain.
“ Low back pain is a major global burden that is getting worse as the population ages”
“it’s time for a change”
From this study there is a call to address this by changing the way we think about pain and treatment approaches.
We need to shift focus from passive therapies like interferential and ultrasound for which there is little evidence of effectiveness in low back pain.
I would also add mobilisations and manipulations.
As the developer of the Soaz method, I believe I have not only found a new approach but that it is the only approach because it does not just focus on Pain relief but also delivers better movement and balance to the body. This is what will keep the body in its optimal condition.
