The invisible cause of low back pain

Want to learn something interesting? I’ve treated talented riders with postural issues resulting in low back pain. What I noticed however, is that ALL of my low back and stressed out patients are trying so desperately to stay on their “horse”.That’s right. It’s invisible.

In an attempt to stabilize our body because of weak #abdominals and a weak mid back, we grip and strain our muscles in our neck, pecs, arms and hands to hold on the reins. We overuse our deep hip flexors called the #psoad, our deep hip rotators of the hip and our adductors in our inner thighs to squeeze the body of the horse.
This is an unhealthy strategy and it’s also an emotional one. As a consequence we throw ourselves into #chronic misalignment and this will manifest as chronic headaches, TMJ pain, neck pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, snapping hip, low back pain, shallow breathing, rib joint dysfunction, sciatica, hip pain and generalized stiffness.
For this reason, I myofascially release these muscles with my hands or acupuncture, realign the joints with chiropractic adjustments and teach the body to maintain alignment with Kinesiotape and Pilates.
It’s a commitment. Have the right team on your side to get you healthy. Realign. Strengthen. Live your Life. 20141208-074403-27843564.jpg
