Lower back pain is the primary cause of activity limitation and absence from work throughout the world. In the United States alone, it is estimated that 149 million work days are lost. These lost workdays cost US businesses an estimated $100 to $200 million per year. The results of popular treatments including injections, analgesics, and surgery are often disappointing.
Biomechanical assessments can often provide the knowledgeable practitioner with key information regarding root cause, and open the way to a new, non-invasive, low risk treatment plan. Based on natural imbalances of the body that, with patterned movement, can turn into compensations, muscle rebalancing can provide reduced pain and increased function and mobility.
This presentation will explain the biomechanical imbalance patterns that can contribute to lower back pain, as well as present possible non-invasive treatment exercise options.
