A Progressive Approach For A Different Way To Ease Your Back Pain In Brighton
At Brighton Physiotherapy & Sports Therapy we have a different approach to sorting back pain that we find more effective than using conventional methods alone. Firstly it’s important that we rule out anything nasty that isn’t going to respond to what we do. This will not be the case for the vast majority of people but we absolutely need to check. We will have a good idea or not over the phone if you’re in any doubt. Formalities done. Onto the interesting bit. You see most back pain doesn’t come from the back. Most of our clients, some of whom are in significant pain, have had scans with no or minimal findings. So where is the pain coming from? And this is the complex bit. The back generally is a scapegoat in terms of symptoms for other things going on in other parts of the body. If the front of our body it too tight, from for example too much sitting, too much running, too much stress or a combination of all three then the back has to work harder to oppose this tension that pulls us forwards. Because our back are fighting gravity rather than working with gravity it’s the back that normally screams first, not the tension at the front. The same is true from the side. Are you a bit wonky? Is one side of your pelvis higher than the other causing shortening, tightening and ultimately pain on one side of your back?
