Many people who suffer from chronic low back pain visit doctors to receive a diagnosis in hopes of finding a treatment or cure for their low back pain. Unfortunately, many of the those treatments do not address the cause of the pain, the underlying condition, yet only focus on the symptom.

Regardless of the diagnosed condition, most low back pain is caused by imbalances in the muscles that develop and worsen over time. In many cases, patients hips are too tight and strong, while glutes are too weak and stretched. This imbalance pulls the pelvis out of balance,  straining the spines into an excessive curve – leading to the pain. Many find relief simply by relieving the tightness through a simple stretch.

Take a moment to watch this simple stretch that alleviates low back pain quickly.

Now, this stretch will give you some immediate relief by stretching the tight muscles. But to truly correct the problem and stop pain from returning, you must identify and address your muscle imbalances.

Remember, since low back pain is just a symptom, it’s important to hunt for the root causes of your pain. Finding them quickly all starts with addressing your muscle imbalances – which muscles are too tight, and which are too loose.

Learn more about Muscle Balance Therapy™ to identify the root cause 

Why do traditional lower back pain treatments fail?

Most traditional treatments fail because they simply address the symptoms and fail to address the cause of the condition.

Your low back pain is a physical problem, and it requires a physical solution. There are no pills or injections that can restore postural balance in your body because they are unable to take the pressure off the nerve or make the joints work better. Chiropractors and physical therapists usually offer spinal mobilization, hot packs, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and therapeutic exercises. Surgery should always be your last option and should only be considered if the severity of your condition warrants it.

Sciatica is a type of pain, burning or shooting pain running down the legs. Because it’s really a symptom and not a condition, you can get relief quickly. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you check out my simple stretch to eliminate sciatic pain today.

Click here to watch that video

Sciatica is usually caused by four conditions

Piriformis Syndrome

This is the most common cause. It results when pressure is placed on sciatic nerve by piriformis muscle. Muscles tighten and put pressure on the nerve, causing the pain.

Herniated Disc

When a bulging disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause pain.

Spinal Stenosis

This is a narrowing of the spinal canal, causing pressure on the nerve leading to pain

Spondylolisthesis

In this quite rare condition, the vertebrae shift, pinching the spinal canal, placing pressure on the nerve and causing pain.

Enjoy this short video explaining each of these conditions, and showing how you can get lasting relief!

No matter the cause, there’s hope!

First, address your immediate symptoms with the simple sciatica stretch found here.

Second, find the root cause of your condition through Muscle Balance Therapy™. While surgery may be required, it should never be the first step. Most cases of these conditions can be treated simply by identifying which muscles are pulling your spine and body out of alignment. Then, by addressing those imbalanced muscles, you can find lasting relief without surgery, drugs, or costly interventions.

For some people, it may be difficult to see a downside to women with large breasts. But for 1 million women who are – let us say “generously endowed” – it can be a source of considerable pain. Some women, in fact, suffer with severe pain, deteriorating posture, and are at risk for spinal deformity and other repetitive stress injuries to the shoulders and upper extremities due to their proportionately large breasts.

These problems result from changes in the normal anatomical structure caused by the excess weight on the chest and weak muscular support. Another fact related to this condition is that some women even feel ashamed and actually try to hide them buy altering their posture by allowing their shoulders to roll forward. This abnormal posture will possibly put pressure on an area of the upper body near the shoulder called the “thoracic outlet”. When this occurs, a bundle of nerves and blood vessels can become compressed and cause pain and discomfort down the upper extremities.

Very large breasts not only can cause a reduction in the normal curve of the upper and mid-back region but will potentially also cause severe low back pain. When the upper vertebrae of the spine are altered, the lower vertebrae then assume more stress. The challenge for these women is to maintain an efficient posture through proper strengthening and “CORE” stabilization exercises.

Workouts may make it worse

High impact exercise can be a challenge for women with large breasts. During vigorous workouts, the breasts will go through short vertical and linear movements often with high intensity, resulting in increased strain on supporting tissue of the breast and the supporting back muscles. The results can often be highly problematic, unless preventive measures are taken.

Physical therapy, posture exercises, and even pain medication are often a woman’s first line of defense. Many doctors recommend purchasing customized bras or sports bras that can better distribute the substantial weight of large breasts across a larger area, thereby reducing muscle strain and improving overall breast positioning. This is especially important for women with a small frame, since their breasts place stress on a more concentrated area, it may be necessary to incorporate all of the strategies to get relief.

Let me explain

Before any women begins any exercise program that is intended to help with their back pain, they need to have to have a full physical assessment performed making sure that any postural dysfunctions are accounted for and their associated muscle imbalances are corrected. Muscle imbalances can be described as one muscle group being overly strong and tight and the opposing muscle groups weaker and overly stretched out.

Postural Dysfunctions can be described as abnormal position of the pelvis or abnormal position of the upper neck, head and shoulders. As we mentioned earlier, a woman can hold her shoulders in a rounded position, thus adding the weight of the breast and you now have the shoulders internally rotated, depressed and adducted, which will pull the head forward of the shoulder which in turn will cause the neck to be pulled forward and down.

There are many other adapted responses that happen including counter balancing the weight of the body in the upper spine as well as the position of the pelvis. It is the pelvis than usually accommodates the most while also having the greatest influence on the curvature on the spine.

What you can do before the last resort

What I have just described is a process that is repeated every day and no single piece of high tech diagnostic equipment available to the medical community can systematically piece it all together. There are many chain reactions that occur to cause low back pain which is why the physical assessments are so critical.

In this case, the assessments need to take into account the postural dysfunction of the upper neck back and shoulder as well as the position of the pelvis. Which muscles are tight and overly strong and which muscles are weak and not able to support the body adequately. There needs to be a comprehensive plan to accomplish a new resting tension or elimination of the muscle imbalances. Essentially a woman will be asked to do a very unbalanced workout to get back to a more balanced state and to a point that her body can support the extra stress, throughout the rest of her life.

A last resort

Failure to address the postural issues may result in a more drastic solution. There is a steady increasing number of women are choosing is breast-reduction surgery. Make sure to use this option as a last resort, since there are many risks and negative side effects from this operation.

In addition to the external scars, scarring inside the breast may also occur. Until recently, doctors were concerned that this might interfere with the accuracy of a mammogram – and in doing so increase the risk of breast cancer.

But it turns out that for some women, breast examination and mammography may actually be easier to perform after a breast reduction. “From the standpoint of the physical exam, it may be more difficult to pick up a very small lesion [lump] in a woman with very large breasts,” says Charles Finder, M.D., a radiologist in the Food and Drug Administration’s Mammography Quality and Radiation Program.

Other drawbacks to breast-reduction surgery may include a lack of sensitivity in the nipple and a decrease in sexual response. Many doctors also caution that there can be a significant reduction in milk supply after surgery. Some women find they can’t breast feed at all.

On top of that, the average cost of breast-reduction surgery in the U.S. is close to $6,000 and can run much higher depending on where you live. As a result, many insurance companies have written breast-reduction surgery out of their coverage completely.

Fortunately, there are alternatives to surgery that can bring relief to women who suffer from back pain caused by overly large breasts. Muscle balance therapy is a safe and effective way to restore some stability to the pelvis and spine, in order to help the body tolerate the stress of everyday life for the women with larger breasts.

Do you find it difficult to get out of bed in the morning, because of too much pain? Does it take you an hour or two for your body to ‘warm up’ and your joints and muscles to loosen before you can tackle the tasks of the day? You are not alone.

According to the American College of Rheumatology, Fibromyalgia affects 3 to 6 million Americans. That’s 1 in 50 Americans, with seven times more the frequency in women than in men. And according to the NHIS, by 2030 an estimated 67 million Americans are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis.

Morning stiffness is one of the more common complaints doctors hear about from patients with fibromyalgia, arthritis, rheumatism and those whose bodies no longer rebound after a day of activity—even gardening—like it used to.

Don’t let morning stiffness cut your day short, by starting it later… And while most people reach for muscle relaxants like Motrin and pain relievers like Aleve to get them going, you don’t need to.

Main Causes of Morning Stiffness

The basic causes of morning stiffness are lack of daily physical activity, being overweight, having a poor diet, not sleeping properly, and being in an environment that tends to be cold and/or damp.

Exercising on a daily basis (even walking while swinging your arms) is a great way to release those feel-good endorphins, get the blood moving and help clear nasty toxins from the body.

Being overweight causes you to carrying unnecessary poundage, which puts strain on your joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.

A poor diet that is high in simple carbohydrates causes weak muscles, bad posture and lethargy.

A poor sleeping posture can lock your body in a bad position for hours, causing reduced blood flow to the local muscles, and a buildup of lactic acid, causing stiffness.

Living or working in cold or damp environment causes muscles to stiffen because the cold or damp affects the blood flow throughout the body.

Relieving Morning Stiffness

You can be happy to know that what is causing your morning stiffness can be avoided or corrected… Here are 10 easy things you can do to make a big difference in your life.

  1. Be sure to get ample deep sleep, so your body can repair and recharge. Forget about those troubles or conversations or tasks that need addressing; they can be handled tomorrow. Also, be sure to sleep either on your side or on your back—as stomach sleeping causes unnecessary stress on the low back and spine.
  2. If your room is drafty, seal the windows or door. If it is cold, try a space heater or using extra blankets to prevent that cold or dampness from stiffening your body.
  3. Do some easy stretches while lying in bed, then sitting up in bed—such as bending to the front and sides. This will stretch and loosen the muscles and help flush them with more blood.
  4. Take a hot shower. This serves as a means to induce sweating, promote blood circulation and release muscle spasms. Simply stand under the hot water and… relax.
  5. After you are warmed up from the shower, do some gentle knee bends—as far as you can go without falling! You can hold on to something for balance, if needed. You don’t have to go all the way down, either. These exercise almost 90% of the skeletal muscles. Find a counter, table or chair and use your hands for support. Then exhale and squat as low as you can go, then inhale and stand up again. Do 10 of these to get the morning blood flowing and creaky joints silent.
  6. Drink the best water you can get. Often the tap water in our cities is not the freshest or safest. Even cities like Los Angeles have traces of psychiatric medicines and estrogenic-like compounds in its tap water—and these toxins build up in our systems over time, causing pain. It is advisable to drink either bottled water or reverse osmosis filtered water.
  7. Eat better. Cut down on simple carbohydrates and start reading labels to avoid consuming more toxins. Simply eliminate all foods with artificial color, enriched white flour and artificial flavors / sweeteners (high fructose corn syrup, crystalline fructose and aspartame). If you don’t know what it is, or have difficulty pronouncing it, avoid ingesting it.
  8. Learn some coping mechanisms and stress management techniques, so that you’re not lying awake all night thinking about your problems. Learning how to deal with toxic people in your life will both allow you to sleep better and reduce the stress-induced muscle spasms that cause pain.
  9. Get some regular exercise. The idea is to go out and do some something physical with your body. Even a simple routine of 10000 steps a day (buy a pedometer!) will greatly improve your health!
  10. Be the fashion police! You want to dress appropriately for these cold months, and you might do well to sleep in flannel pajamas or sweats. Remember, cold air causes muscles and joints to stiffen.

These simple tips followed with a little dedication, along with some minor lifestyle changes and changes to the living environment, can help you overcome morning stiffness in no time.

Is Back Pain Ruining Your Love Life?

If you’ve ever had back pain you know that it’s difficult to perform non-strenuous activities like walking and sitting, so more vigorous activities such as sex often have to take a back seat until the pain subsides. This can place unnecessary pressure on a relationship as intimacy takes a backseat to pain. You should not feel alone however, as more than 30 million people are suffering from back pain.

The problem with back pain in sex is that the pain can go away for hours or days and you never know when the pain will return. This can put you in a fearful state of mind, constantly worrying about re-injuring your back or causing injury to your partner. The fear of pain can also take the spontaneous nature of sex out of the equation altogether, causing tension between you and your partner.

Before you let back pain dictate your sex life, make sure you get a diagnosis from a physician. An accurate diagnosis will let you know what’s causing your back pain, but it will also let you know what is possible with your current physical limitations. Contrary to what you may believe, back pain doesn’t mean the end of your sex life. It means you and your partner will have to adjust to your new reality—temporarily or permanently—to keep the pain at a minimum.

After your diagnosis don’t be afraid to speak with your physical therapist about what movements you can and cannot perform in the bedroom. Set aside your embarrassment and you’ll ease your fear about worsening the back pain. Make this discussion easier by making sure your partner is in the examination room with you so both of you can be fully informed about what is and is not okay.

Before you engage in sex you want to make sure you, as the injured party, are as relaxed as possible. This may mean beginning with a sensual massage or a hot bath or shower to relax back muscles. Once the muscles are relaxed you can get into the mood, leaving fear as a distant memory.

Try These Positions Tonight…

Enjoy a painless sexual encounter by giving the positions below a try:

For men:

  • Try having sex while lying on your side, facing each other or prepared for entry from behind.
  • Place a back pillow under your lower back for woman on top position.
  • Sex on a chair with a sturdy back, in the sitting position.

For women:

  • Missionary position with knees bent toward chest instead of facing to the left and right.
  • Straddling your partner on a chair.
  • Position yourself on hands and knees for rear entry, or place a cylinder pillow under your chest with back arched.

Your best bet is to try different positions to maximize pleasure while minimizing back pain. You may have to continuously adjust your lovemaking positions as your recovery progresses or digresses. But avoid getting to boisterous because you have been pain-free for a few days, as you can cause back pain to return or worsen.

Physical vs. Mental Pain

There are two important aspects to back pain: physical and mental. The physical pain is what we most identify with because it is what most inhibits us in our everyday lives. The physical pain manifests itself in limited movements, but it is also what causes the mental aspect of back pain.

The mental part of back pain can be far more damaging to your recovery and your relationship. The feelings you have of inadequacy and not feeling “whole” because of your limitations can make matters worse for you and your partner. As your worry increases about the pain getting worse and your sex life deteriorating further can make you terrified of having sex until you are completely free of back pain. Your misconceptions about how your partner perceives you can cause you to act too cautious when it comes to activity in the bedroom.

The best thing you can do to overcome this is to be open and honest with your partner about what he or she can expect during sex. Let me know what you can and cannot do in terms of positions and map out a plan that allows you both to enjoy sex without aggravating your back pain.

One thing you should remember is that exercise is great for back pain and sex is excellent exercise. The longer you put it off the more difficult it will be to overcome. Approach sex as exercise and figure out what positions hurt the least and what positions feel the best. Only by working with your partner can you figure this out and get your sex life back on track.

Start slowly with basic positions that don’t require a lot of jerky movements and do your best to take note of what positions cause pain and where the pain is located. Use your imagination to come up with new positions that lets you both enjoy sexual encounters without doing further damage to your back.

Back pain doesn’t require you to say “goodbye” to your sex life, it just means you’ll have to get reacquainted with imaginative sex.

Low level laser therapy, or cold laser therapy provides an alternative for those people that do not want to take NSAID’s or prescription pain pills. After all, anyone that has ever been in severe pain knows just how serious it can be. If you have adverse reactions to prescription pain killers, then you can consider laser therapy. This type of painless and non invasive treatment is available in many major metropolitan areas. Cold laser therapy has been used to treat conditions like; carpel tunnel syndrome, back pain, neck pain, tennis elbow, joint pain and more.

Laser Therapy is considered an FDA approved treatment. However, you should always do adequate research before choosing a doctor. Injuries often lead to disruption of the cell activity in the body. The lasers are able to penetrate beneath the skin and can stimulate normal cell activity. This procedure has been around for about 10 years, though testing of similar products began testing in the 1990′s. Some forms of laser therapy have been used in Europe for the past few years.

Simply put, cold laser therapy is designed to stimulate cells, speed up healing and reduce inflammation.

Like most treatments, cold laser therapy has its limitations. For example, if there are muscle imbalances in the body or excess pressure on a nerve, cold laser therapy will not address these issues. Another downside to this treatment is that it can be costly and not something that can be done from home. The best herniated disc treatment plans will include multiple methods. It is important that you treat the causes, not just the symptoms of your pain.

There are other ways to reduce inflammation and heal herniated disc pain.

First, visit the herniated disc section of our website. Be sure to watch the videos on causes of herniated discs and listen to our free program called Herniated Disc Healing Miracles.
